Shinji by Kanesaka
Situated on the second floor of the famous Raffles Hotel, Shinji by Kanesaka offers an intimate setting in which to sample some of the finest and freshest sushi Singapore has to offer. Carved from a 220-year-old tree, the restaurant’s sushi counter presents classic maki and nigiri-style sushi as well as sashimi and soups

Shinji by Kanesaka, 02-20 Raffles Hotel, 1 Beach Road, Singapore, +65 6338 6131


A masterchef of Japanese cuisine, Santaro Li is the head chef at Santaro@Hinoki and has more than 40 years of culinary experience. The sushi is composed only of the freshest and finest ingredients, which are flown over from Japan, so you can be sure that when dining here you’re going to taste the very best of this cuisine.

Santaro@Hinoki, 01-50/53 China Square Central, South Bridge Court, 22 Cross Street, Singapore, +65 6536 7746


Aoki is owned by the high-end Les Amis Group, so impeccable standards and outstanding flavours are to be expected. When dining on sushi here, opt for the omakase menu that entrusts the chef with the selection and assembly of your entire meal. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what arrives on your plate and will have a truly unforgettable sushi experience.

Aoki, 02-17 Shaw Centre, 1 Scotts Road, Singapore, +65 6333 8015


Sushi Ichi
With only 12 seats available it’s no surprise that Sushi Ichi has a long waiting list, but if you book weeks in advance your patience will be rewarded. Flying in the finest fish from Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji fish market four times a week, Sushi Ichi needs no introduction as one of the best places for sushi in Singapore.

Sushi Ichi, 02-02 Scotts Square, 6 Scotts Road, Singapore, +65 6299 0014


With its bunker-like interior of concrete pipes and exposed floors, Ikyu may not look like a typical Singapore sushi restaurant, but it offers top-of-range Japanese dishes. The Ikyu premium platter, which comes with seven assorted kinds of nigiri (with rice rolls), is a great way to sample the best of the restaurant’s cuisine.

Ikyu, 5 Yong Siak Street, Singapore, +65 6223 9003
