“My first time at a Japanese Restaurant”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

The Ikoi restaurant is situated in the lobby of the Miramar hotel in downtown Singapore. I went with some friends of mine who had been before which not having eaten Japanese food before was a little reassuring. However when we arrived and eventually got a seat (it was absolutely stacked) the waitress very kindly took over and ordered for us. She bought beautifully prepared raw fish. Soup, chicken, cooked fish, bacon, tempura prawns etc, etc served with a variety of sauces, mustard and vinegar accompanied by green tea and I can honestly say I was more than surprised by just how much I enjoyed my first Japanese food eating experience. Very tasty, very satisfying and very different.

“Great value buffet”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I found Ikoi on Trip Advisor after looking for good restaurants in my neighbourhood. I was surprised to find out that it was actually an all-you-can-eat buffet. The place was pretty crowded, but there was no wait for seats. It had a good friendly atmosphere. All of the food was of a pretty good standard. The only gripe would be the waiting time between orders. But overall I was happy. For the price, I definitely recommend the buffet.

“BEST JAPANESE RESTAURANT IN SINGAPORE!!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

If you love Japanese cuisine you MUST visit IKOI restaurant located at the ground floor of the Miramar Hotel. Owners Charlie and Judy together with their attentive staff will welcome you on arrival and make you feel right at home. My family and I have been to IKOI on numerous occasions and they never fail to produce the best food and service each time! Freshest sashimi, sushi, hand rolls, teriyaki n tempura items, and many more delicious eats are offered non stop. Reservations at least 1 week ahead are recommended especially on weekends, though they will do their best to accommodate. Great food great value great service! Keep up the fabulous work IKOI!

“Book in advance”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

You would never expect a bustling place like this inside a hotel. Friendly service and delicious food (I had the salmon terriyaki). Regarding previous reviews: yes, service might be a little slow if you don't take the buffet. Yes, small tables, so if you want privacy, stay in your room. And yes, book in advance.

Who doesn't love Japanese Food?

I dont know anyone who does not have Japanese on their top 3 favorite cuisines - it sits comfortably next to Italian Cuisine on my list.

Ikoi Japanese Restaurant offers good quality Japanese ala carte buffet at a very reasonable price.
