20 Best Omakase Restaurants In Singapore 2022 For Every Budget

Leave it up to the chef to impress you and your loved ones at these affordable to luxury omakase restaurants in Singapore.

Omakase dining has become increasingly popular in Singapore recently, especially for those who are looking to spoil themselves and their loved ones or to celebrate special occasions. 

Of course, omakase dining doesn’t come cheap. Expect to shell out an average of S$100 per person (which is already costly for most) to over S$300 per person for a more extravagant dining experience.

While omakase is pricey compared to dining at regular Japanese restaurants, it’s usually the experience that people go for. 

If you have yet to try out an omakase meal, we’d recommend you to go for it at least once in your life — we promise you that it will be an unforgettable experience.

What is omakase?

Omakase is more of an artistic culinary philosophy than an actual cooking technique. Loosely translated to mean “I’ll leave it up to you”, this dining experience allows Japanese chefs to fully explore the full range of their culinary capabilities to curate a menu that best reflects them and the zestful spirit that is apparent in Japanese cuisine. 

It also opens up explorative opportunities for diners to seek out the unknown, providing opportunities to surprise, amaze and delight their palate as they venture into uncharted territory. 

Given that omakase menus are often blanketed in secrecy, every omakase experience is a unique one.

Why is omakase so expensive?

Omakase presentations are typically reflective of the chef’s sentiments, passion and interpretive art. As such, it is expected that only the best ingredients are used in each dish. Some dishes contain ingredients that are rare and distinct, some of which are exceptionally hard to obtain due to their exclusivity (such as wagyu beef and usuzukuri). 

Some restaurants prefer to go all out (S$200 or more), while other establishments provide a more simplistic approach to omakase to make it accessible to the average folk.
