Best Omakase Restaurant Singapore 2022 | How much does Omakase cost?

We just have recently reviewed the Best Japanese Restaurants that you can try in Singapore but I think the Best Omakase Restaurants also deserve their own article! If you are an avid fan of Japanese food and surprises, then you deserve to have an authentic omakase meal without ever leaving Singapore.

Omakase meals are ideal for people who are very indecisive about certain things, even food. Having an Omakase meal would make you excited each time the chef hands you a meal, because you would never know what’s next!

I must give you a heads-up that omakase meals can be very expensive depending on the restaurant and the chef. On the other hand, I highly recommend visiting any of these restaurants that we have reviewed below if you want to experience real Japanese fine dining.

There are only a few omakase restaurants in Singapore, but we have chosen only the best of the best ones that we can find! Let’s get the list going and start reserving tables for these amazing omakase restaurants!

What is an Omakase meal?

An Omakase meal in Japan means that the menu is specifically selected by the chef. They would usually vary from time to time. Customers don’t get to choose what they would eat, the chefs would be giving the food to them. 

Why is Omakase so expensive? How much Omakase cost in Singapore

You might be wondering why someone would have to spend hundreds of dollars just to get a Japanese Omakase meal. The reason behind this is that Omakase meals are usually priced as a set meal, so you can get 3 or more courses in just one dining.

Another reason behind the expensive prices of omakase meals are the quality of ingredients used for each food item. You would never have to deal with inferior ingredients, because highly skilled chefs are the ones choosing and preparing them – especially the seafood!

If you are on budget, go for OMAKASE lunch instead of dinner in Singapore. Why? Because some of these lunch prices are 2x cheaper than night time. Lunch has lesser crowd during weekdays. So for busy people like you and me, we have to take leaves in order to consume such extravagant dishes!

Sushi Kou 鮓 煌 is established just this 2020 and is headed by Chef Yoshio Sakuta who have received two Michelin stars here in Singapore.

All of their premium ingredients are directly supplied by Toyosu Market from Japan, so you are assured that everything is just of excellent quality.

Honestly, this is one of the restaurants that offers the most expensive prices which starts at $420 for the Aya set and $500 for the Kou set. The Aya set consists of 3 cooked dishes, 11 pieces of sushi,  Miso Soup, and some dessert.

For the Kou set, you get to enjoy 5 food dishes, 11 sushi pieces, Miso soup, and some dessert. $500 might seem very expensive, but the overall dining experience and quality of food is what makes this restaurant special.

Teppei Japanese Restaurant

Another affordable omakase place in Singapore is the Teppei Japanese Restaurant. Yes, you can experience having an omakase meal at this place, but this does not exactly look and feel like the fine dining restaurants that we have mentioned above.

You can think of it as Omakase for the masses, since it comes at a very reasonable price if you just want to have that experience.

You would probably be seating elbow to elbow with your fellow diners and the place is a little snuggly, but it sure is fun to dine here! 

For only $80, you can enjoy a very lengthy lunch or dinner and leave the restaurant feeling so full! One of my favorite shoes is the Tentama Goma Tofu which is deep fried tofu that comes in a light and sweet batter.

This restaurant is also very famous for their lobster sashimi that always comes in very fresh! The lobster dish is just new to the Tepper Japanese Restaurant, but this is what makes customers come back for more dining experience!
