On the hunt for the best sushi in Singapore? From affordable value-for-money bento platters to conveyor belt sushi and gourmet sashimi, we round up the best Japanese restaurants for a casual family meal
Wondering where to get the best sushi in Singapore to satisfy that craving? There’s nothing like a beautiful platter of sushi and sashimi whether you are dining out or ordering sushi delivery. The best part is…kids love it, it’s not fried, and it’s filled with Omega-3 goodness – so, everybody wins. Some sushi restaurants offer huge sushi platters for delivery, which are great for birthday parties, picnics, or family dinners. Restaurants like Sushiro with conveyor belt sushi are always super popular with the kids (especially when that avocado maki is delivered on a sushi train!). As always what constitutes the best sushi is subjective so here we are highlighting what we reckon is the best sushi in Singapore for families. If you’re dining out with kids who love conveyor belt sushi – skip to the conveyor sushi section below. While we’d love to splurge on omakase with Edo-style sushi at Oshino, dinner at Shinji by Kanesaka, Mizuki or one-Michelin-starred Hamamoto, our wallets couldn’t take regular family outings there! So instead we round up our favourite affordable casual Japanese restaurants where the fam can indulge in some of the tastiest bentos, tempura, sashimi, and sushi in Singapore!
