Had patronise this restaurant for uncountable times and got to admit this restaurant still serve the best and freshest sashimi that I ever eaten. Most importanly is you can order as many times you want since its buffet thus is very valuable for money. Price is around $35-$40 per pax. Reservation a few days before (especially dinner) is highly recommended... More

If you are a fan of sashimi, this is the place to go. The types of sashimi offered are more than those offered at other a la carte buffet places: swordfish, octopus, tuna & of course salmon. (There are at least 2 more but I can't remember what type of fish.) The sashimi cut is satisfyingly thick & the fish... More

Staff service was terrible as had to face staff with long sour faces. Wasted time waiting for food items to appear at table, too way too long. Not recommended!

The food is excellent but they were very understaffed when we visited which meant long waits for everything we ordered. The staff who were be tried their best so we couldn't really complain. Def worth a visit as the food really is good

My 2nd visit here n they have maintained their standard and quality of Sashimi n services! It's quieter here on a weekday dinner time slot. So the services and speed which the food was prepared was a lot faster! As usual we are here for the Sashimi n we were not disappointed! This time only the Hamachi is not available.... More

I was first intrigued by the entrance of this restaurant in Hotel Miramar - it is quite unique with Japanese Lanterns adornments. My friend recommended this place to me and I absolutely love it. But beware though because the food is good there is almost always a crowd and you might not have a place to sit. Reservations not allowed... More

Today, Celine* and I decided to head to Ikoi Japanese Restaurant for lunch in the rain, just to satiate our sashimi cravings. It was a rather last minute decision, and I was surprised that she managed to make reservations in the morning for our noon-time lunch. Anyway, the well-known Ikoi Japanese Restaurant is located at 401 Havelock Road #01-01 Miramir... More

It was my second time at Ikoi and the place was packed, with even every seat at the sushi and sashimi counters fully occupied. Reservations were made two weeks ago by my friends and we were seated at the sashimi counter. The tuna, salmon and marlin sashimi were fresh. There were also octopus and squid sashimi. But that was about... More

Umpteen visits to Ikoi and i will still recommend this place for friends who are very into sashimi. Their choice of sashimi may be restricted to the main fish types but the freshness is always there. Other choices of Japanese food is authentic and tasty! buffet dinner is at $38++ so if you are not those who can eat lots,... More
