Yummy Sashimi

Loved the sashimi! Truly fresh and tasty! Quite a good range of food from raw to fried to grilled. Grilled mackerel was a tad dry and tough, yakitori was sweet and moist.

If you’re really into Japanese cuisine, then this restaurant is somewhat of a hidden gem in the Clarke Quay area of Singapore. It is located inside the Hotel Miramar. It is a little out of the way and about a 20 minute walk from either Chinatown, Outram Park or Clarke Quay MRT’s, but it is well worth it! So for... More

This restaurant is serves authentic Japanese food. You have the choice of ordering set dishes from the menu as we did or ordering the buffet. The buffet is not the smorgasbord type - there is a chef in the middle of the restaurant who prepares the buffet dishes. The atmosphere is good and the service was great. Set dishes were... More

First, please understand that this place is a low key, relaxed, small (for about 25 guest) specialized Japanese restaurant. Me and my daughter were the only foreigners there yesterday and the place was packed solid. There are two seatings, one for lunch 11-14 and dinner 18-21. You have to call for booking. Do not expect champagne fountains and Evian water... More

Managed to find this place on reviews and after last night's visit, I wasn't disappointed. Right in the lobby of the hotel, the entrance looks small and non-striking but right inside past the main doors the ambiance is totally different. Feels really like in japan! The food is amazing,. As per reviews the food portion is small so its totally... More

When you walk in this restaurant, it reminded me a lot of the pleasant Izakayas of Tokyo. The decoration, the conversations, the mood and decoration. The all you can eat buffet is just AMAZING. Fish is very very fresh, and the hot dishes are also so tasty. They come in small portions, which is makes it easier to try a... More

It's been some years, since I last dined at Ikoi. At one time it was a regular and favourite haunt. But boredom set in and tastes changed. So, last night's visit was greatly anticipated. Would the food quality and preparation still be good or a disappointment? Would the staff be friendly? Have the prices gone up? What about the ambience?... More

I go to Ikoi whenever I need my sashimi fix. They serve generous cuts of fresh sashimi and the a la carte buffet leaves one spoiled for choice. Excellent tempura too. Despite the occassionally service (this place is ALWAYS full), you will always leave this restaurant deeply satisfied.

Within the Mirimar hotel, we stumbled on this right next to the lifts. We were the only Europeans eating there, which perhaps indicated its popularity with the locals. The meal was a fixed price and the Malay couple we shared a table with recommended the dishes to try. Excellent value
