    The evening Omakasé menu was fantastic from the first of 7 dishes all the way through to the last. Highly recommended. Sakés, both hot and usual options were incredible.

    Alex and the team were warm, welcoming and attentive throughout our visit. I’d come again to try their lunch and other menus.

    It was a worth visiting lunch. Menu has a few friendly small sets, for people who want to have sashimi/tempura/grill/only other than a big signature menu.

    Food was delightful, and we especially liked the grilled cod with clean taste. And I love it that every sets get a salad on the side!

    Dessert was another hit, my friend said she would love to come even for dessert only. Comparing to the usual Japanese desserts, it is a well designed set that three components gave a full collection of flavours and textures.
    Jelly looks plain but it melted with a umeshu taste, ice cream had brown sugar flavour, and the mochi was a traditional spring Sakuramochi with a Sakura leave~

    Service was professional, but only one limitation for the first batch lunch. We have to finish dining in 80 minutes so everything has to be in compact pace.

    Tried the dinner omakase here – not bad for the price. None of the dishes blew us away but minimum standard was met. Best dish was dessert. Service wasn’t great, waitress and manager seemed untrained/inexperienced, but generally still fine. Sake was served lukewarm.

    It was my third visit, but not sure visit again or not. Sushi was great, except squid sushi. It was too tough, and hard to chew and swallow, even though there were many scores in the sushi. Service was just good level, not impressive. Felt pressures when they are glaring our tables too obviously for next dishes. Wrong billing was another their mistake. Think there were only two tables occupied at that time, but they gave another table’s bill. Assistant chef was using cell phone on the counter with very boring faces. It was also another disappointing point. Overall not that bad, but maybe other better sushi restaurant for the next time.

    The food is slightly above average and $35 for sushi lunch set is not bad. Rating this 3 stars as the restaurant has resorted to charging a non optional $6 fee (mentioned on small letters at be bottom of the menu) for a wet towel, in addition to the 10% service charge.

    This restaurant is the bomb we celebrated a friends birthday here and each ordered a set, which was SGD200 +++ each and was served over many small courses. We had a small private room partitioned by a side screen so not percent closed off. The service was superb and we decided to bring our own bubbles , but I must say that the corkage at SGD60.00 per bottle is rather excessive with no offset provided for other beverages ordered! The night was topped off by some amazing sake that we ordered after our two bottles ran dry. It was super smooth and amazing, all in all a great place to dine, super convenient if not driving with access to Orchard MRT and in an area with plenty of bars to enjoy after dinner.

    Average quality food, pricing is pricey. 6 course entree was a bluff? Seriously one scallop? Anyway if you alftering quality sashimi and Japanese dish I suggest try out Kenji Japanese gourmet restaurant, burwood. Reasonable price and fresh sashimi and dishes. Only issues don’t have range of sake serve.

    Lunch omakase is $146 w.gst, it was the first Sushiya try in Singapore,so it’s little early to judge this restaurant, but not that impressive and felt not really worth to pay it comparing to one in Japan or Korea (same quality omakase in that places will be only $50-70 with better atmosphere)

    Standard has dropped significantly. Ordered the omakase lunch set. Grilled fish was very dry and hard. Sushi was very average; the fish was OK and the rice was underwhelming. Overall quality of ingredients felt like the restaurant was under a lot of pressure to cut costs. Although the omakase is priced on the lower end of the market vs most other high-end sushi restaurants ($125 vs $120-250) but the overall food and experience failed to meet that minimum bar. The bento sets may be a better option if you don’t want to be disappointed.

    Unfortunately inconsistent and underwhelming.
    Lunch omakase not worth it at $125. The salad has a sauce I couldn’t stomach, sashimi is good, soup is tasty, grilled dish is small and nothing special, tempura course was 2 small pieces of sweet potato plus a shiso pepper which is disappointing, sushi course was also hit and miss because the rice was not tasty but the tamago was interesting with a thin caramel brulee on top.
    The lunch bento sets are much better value, another at my table had the $45 one which was tasty and well presented.

    Food is mediocre at best. Went during dinner time so prices were even higher – mistake. Most of the $95++ sushi platter tasted super meh. Service was also awful esp for a place charging such prices. Platter was just dumped in front of me with no explanation whatsoever as to the sushi. Macam sushi tei but at 5x the price. My partner ordered a prawn tempura and it was $40 for 4 pieces, but he felt the tempura at Ginza tendon was way better. Sad that at such prices they can’t even compare.

    Wait staff also very eager to clear after you’re done eating. We were rushed through our meal and finished in an hour, whereupon the wait staff then very smugly asked if we had read the website when making the reservation – my second mistake. Website states $160++ min spend per head. This is only on the booking page and not in the confirmation email but nevertheless I should’ve read. Might’ve saved me a bellyful of meh. So even though the restaurant was super empty and I only saw two other groups when I was there so it’s not like I’m depriving anyone of the spot to dine at this sought after establishment, I now have to order more mediocre food to meet my min spend.

    So we ordered dessert. Musk melon ($30 for one slice) was good. The second star is for this. But the ice cream was icy and frosty within and like the texture was all round horrible like tub ice cream that you shoved in the freezer at the wrong temp.

    Even after this we still haven’t hit the min spend but thankfully the waiter lets us go from their clutches of culinary and service mediocrity. Visit at your own peril. Or maybe just go at lunch since all the people with good reviews seem to have gone at lunch.

    Value for money lunch sets, all normal sets are decently priced at 40+, but the restaurant do charge a extra cover charge of 5/6 per pax.
    Add on $5 and you can get uni for the omakase set.
    The donbinmushi is kinda disappointing, the stock is not as robust as I would had liked, but the 亮點 of the meal is the chicken in the soup. Usually the meat would be overcooked and dry, but the chicken was tender and juicy.

    This is our 3rd visit and we always go for the $125 Omakase lunch set, which can be very filling – so make sure to have a light breakfast or none at all so you could enjoy the full course.

    Pretty decent and value for money. We like to sit at the counter to see the action taking place into plating our food so we could fully appreciate what we will be eating shortly (except for the cooked food which will be done in the kitchen).

    Service staff are pleasant and friendly, and they clear your plates immediately after you are finished – very attentive.

    Less 1 star as the quality of the sashimi is not consistent – or maybe cos we visited on non-shipment day.

    Had lunch here today. Terrible condescending service staff. Even if the food was good, the experience was completely ruined by the attitude of that one staff that served us today. No matter how young your patrons look, your level of service should remain professional. The staff insinuated that the restaurant was too high class for us several times. Also when we accidentally spilled some green tea, her only concern was if we broke the glass.

    What’s good: The food was fresh and well prepared. The space was very cosy and had a nice ambience.

    What’s bad: The quantity simply could not justify the price and I did not leave feeling satisfied. The service was ok at the start. However, the supervisor became less polite to us later, probably because we did not order as much food as other customers. We also noticed that she was rather rude and domineering to the waiters.

    This place is well known for its quality sushi. I had the chirashi at lunch and the fish was top grade and really fatty and oily and even comes with uni. Price is around 40 which is quite affordable for lunch.Their omakse runs into the few hundreds of dollars which I hope to get to try one day.

    Great quality, wide variety of choices on the menu to choose from for lunch. Omakase seems to be the popular choice for everyone. Abit hard locating the restaurant as it is actually outside the shopping centre, facing the side road. It is right beside Les Amis (3* michelin french cuisine, by the same owner of aoki)

    Reservations required.

    Long standing high-end Japanese restaurant in Singapore that stood the test of time. Visited on a weekday evening in Apr 2021 and the experience was reminiscent of my last visit 6-7 years ago except that they had a facelift. The restaurant is small with contemporary interior; there are counter seats (which you should definitely op for) and private rooms, sections that provide more privacy. The other I noticed was reduction in price for the omakase. Admittedly, not all dishes were ground breaking (some were unremarkable). They were rather tuna heavy (perhaps seasonal dependent and Covid impacting logistics). The top 3 that we enjoyed the most were: Monk fish liver (foie gras of the sea), charred black cod nigiri, and uni nigiri. Service were top notch with crews explaining every dishes that was served, crews were polite and extremely attentive. To get the best experience, you should go for the evening omakase (remember to book, reservation from 330pm only). For what I’m paying, I think Aoki is still worth it.

    1. Staff were getting ‘lectured’ and nagged in front of us. Worse, it was right in front of the counter seat. Come on, don’t air your dirty laundry in front of your guests.

    2. Dishes served should be properly timed but we found ourselves rushing to finish each piece of sushi. To the extent that we have 2 pieces of sushi placed on the sushi plate at one shot. No interaction and introduction to what fish we are served with until we asked.

    3. miso soup came to us hot. Opened the lit, took a few sip and wanted to let the soup cool, but service staff came and asked if he can clear our soup already.

    4. While consuming the last piece of dessert, with food still in my mouth, the service staff came in between us and asked if we can pay the bill already. I couldn’t even answer him and just handed him my card.

    Excellent service and amazing mazechirashi bowl! It comes with fish broth miso soup and dessert. Love the ambience too, a nice environment for special occasion! Will definitely come back again to try other food

    Good lunch place, we went for the Omakase lunch. Sashimi and sushi had very fresh ingredients, you can opt to pay extra to get some uni sushi. Overall, we had a good lunch, next time we will just go for the sashimi/sushi dishes instead.

    Little pearl of Singapore! Quiet, the menu offers various sets including: miso + Maki or chirashi sushi and dessert + salads. Reasonable prices for lunch.
    Extremely attentive and discreet service.

    My second time here and this place do not disappoint. The quality of the sushi are top notch and very fresh, skill of sushi chef is reflected in the dish served – beautiful plating, well pressed sushi, and the use of just right amount of wasabi elevates the taste significantly. Price here is higher than your average Japanese restaurant but definitely worth the money and experience. Go try it if you haven’t, highly recommend this!

    A meal to remember. Order a wide range of dishes for 4 people to share. What really struck me was the chirashi rice bowl and the assorted premium sushi selection. The chirashi to be honest is really value for money – going at about $40+, it really packs a punch and they aren’t stingy with the portion of fish. The assorted premium sushi was the killer with uni and otoro standing out for me. Highly recommend this place!

    had lunch here on a weekday with a friend. they have a regular menu and a seasonal one. as we weren’t that hungry (i.e. not in an omakase state of mind) we ordered the Taian Bento ($98++, photos below) while my friend ordered the Mazechirashi ($42++). Otoshi was $6 per person.

    food was of great quality, the sashimi was fresh, cod was delish and vegetable tempura was well-made. dessert (sakura-based) was sublime. portion was good and I was full at the end of the meal.

    ambiance was great (we made reservations and had the counter seats) and the service staff was very attentive.

    4-star as I think it’s relatively overpriced.

    This fine dining Japanese Restaurant is the 7th restaurant in Les Amis group that we visited. The ambience is pretty nice . We reserved sushi bar counter as we planned to enjoy the omakase . The pricing strategy for lunch is unique. They serve sushi set lunch of 7 nigiri at <$40 but they also have omakase at $130. Another super interesting observation is, for omakase diner , the sushi is made and served by the head chef and if you order set lunch is made by other chef. This is a restaurant for diners to eat and enjoy good quality food, not to relax and chat as the restaurant limit seating for around 1 hr 45 mins . Having said all the above, are superb, great quality of fish . I like the balance test and texture of sushi rice . Will come back again for sure.

    Hosted clients at this restaurant. Unfortunately we were not very impressed.
    Food: found the grilled cod dry, unpleasant fishy and too salty. The grilled eggplant had thick layers of some kind of paste on them which was also too salty. The vegetable tempura was sufficiently crispy but it’s selection was quite limited.
    The three flavours of ice-cream were innovative, especially the tofu ice-cream (soya bean flavour) and sakura. However they were served a quarter melted.
    My dining partners also had the omakase sets which they found sufficiently tasty.

    Service: terrible service for a restaurant of this calibre under Les Amis group. Fine dining service it is not. We had to ASK the servers to explain each dish of the omakase courses, because they would deposit the dishes on the tables and then walk away with is looking at the food not knowing what was served. Shouldn’t this be part of their routine?

    More like 3.5 stars. Chirashi set was good with nice stuff like uni, and very generous portions but not cheap ($40++). Sushi set (9 piece) was ok, but a bit pricey ($55++).

    Nice intimate atmosphere.

    Didnt like it that they charged a cover charge of $6++ per pax for “tea, towels”.

    Beautiful restaurant, well-located serving delicious, fresh Japanese cuisine.

    The evening Omakasé menu was fantastic from the first of 7 dishes all the way through to the last. Highly recommended. Sakés, both hot and usual options were incredible.

    Alex and the team were warm, welcoming and attentive throughout our visit. I’d come again to try their lunch and other menus.

    My go to sushi place in Singapore. We usually pick the omakase and a few a la carte dishes to share. Waitresses are very attentive without hovering. Accessible location and great for business lunches as well. It can get busy and the restaurant seats around 30 people only so do call and make a reservation in advance or you might not get a seat during lunch hour rush.

    Chirashi looks good for hipsters to take photos but average for the experienced tongues. Japanese chef only talked to the super rich Chinese regular the entire session. Even Japanese customers that were eating the cheaper sets were ignored.

    The simple looking sushi set was actually done rather well. The pairing of fish/eel and vinegared rice provided a subtle pleasant dining experience which was not expected. Each piece was served at the right temperature, taste and texture except for the tamago which was much too cold. The macha tea was also too strong as it had been steeped for too long. The chirashi don came with beautifully bite-size seafood and vegetables. It was delicious, and would be better had the rice been cooled more. The trio of jelly, mochi and crispy wafer ice cream desserts were a nice combination to end the meal.

    Called at 11.50 am to make a reservation. Guy on phone said and I quote: Can you call back at 3.30 pm? We are having operations now so we cannot take reservations.” Errrr ok? So you don’t have an online reservation platform but you don’t take reservations within your operating hours? Quite bizarre.

    I had a lunch set Omakase (1.30pm sitting).
    The food quality is worth a four stars rating for sure. Freshness of the sashimi is a thumbs up.

    Sushi variety is great as well.

    Clam soup is packed with the natural sweetness from the shell fish and is so yummy till I finish the last drop.

    Tempura is very normal or I should say less than normal. With just a vegetable and a sweet potato. That’s all I got.

    Desserts are well thought of with 4 tasting portions. Taste good and not too sweet. Especially the plum wine jelly!

    Service however is very very disappointing!
    Staffs don’t know what is being served and can’t explain properly what is on the plate. Manager is equally clueless on the sake and quality of service. Precisely we r the last sitting for lunch. I was given the bill not very politely in front of my guests. After credit card being swiped, the whole chunk was rudely passed back to me. Instead of apologizing, I was “told” they are closing soon and please leave!
    I was shocked by how they value their customers and the acceptance of their service!
    I will not visit this restaurant again!

    Been frequenting Aoki since 2015 – & go whenever I crave for quality Japanese food which is most of the time! I love their lunch sets, which are of good value.

    Dining may seem a little rush, but still ample time to enjoy your meal.

    EDIT: my last two visits have been rather disappointing, in particular their mazechirashi. The uni that came with the bowl on my most recent visit was hard and tasted fishy. Also, there is barely any hotate or amaebi found in the bowl anymore. Standard has dropped & it feels like the meals are lacking heart.

    However, I must commend the service. Although rushed, the manager and waitress (Doris) work hard and fast in order to ensure that dining ends within the stipulated time, which may feel impersonal but they are very caring and genuine. I think the chefs could be nicer to them (especially when they give customer feedback) as I can see that they are trying their best to please customers and their bosses. Keep it up!

    Came with a fren and to be honest I did came with some expectations since some frens swear by their food.

    However the focus of my review is not really on the food but more on the service. For a place selling omakase, I would expect the servers to be able to articulate the dishes especially on the ingredients/cut and the best way to dine to better appreciate the flavours. Out of the dishes serve only 3 were articulated and only one of the servers (dressed in lighter top) was able to articulate.

    Second for a fine dining establishment, the decorum of one staff did left a sour taste as she made frivolous comments on a regular who had just entered. The exact words as she served our tea and said to another server was “老顽童来了啊” whether in jest or that regular has that reputation and gladly embrace that monicker I still think these “back talks” should not be done within the earshot of customers.

    I am not sure if Aoki has always been like that but for a place that was praised well I would think it did not have those issues before and if I was the unlucky few that had encountered those service lapses then I guess bad luck on me. But if it is something systemic I highly suggest the management to look into it.

    Oh love ur dessert it did end off well albeit all that experience ~

    Great place to Sushi. I usually dine in, but since we are not allowed too now I have been taking out their Sushi and other take out items. They are just as good! Hope we can enjoy dining in again soon. Visit their website for the take out menu. You can order in advance and pick up at the time you choose.

    Starting at $125 for the omakase lunch makes this a reasonably priced place for the quality and quantity of food. I wouldn’t rank it as the best sushi around but there is the standard you’d expect from the Les Amis group. Sake is priced a bit on the higher side. Service is attentive. Good place for a business lunch.
