It seems like omakase has gained itself a cult following in Singapore. Almost everyone is talking about it, or about how they’ve been pining to try it.

The thing with omakase is that it can be quite very costly, mainly due to its extensive menu and the high-quality ingredients that go into its making. And while it’s definitely worth every penny, the prices may not be everyone’s cup of tea. So whether you’re already a connoisseur or are just setting out on the quest for delectable omakase, here are the restaurants that serve the best omakase in Singapore — from just $36!

Check out our free parking guide to plan your trips even better.

Wait, but what’s omakase?

Don’t worry — we had the same question before we tried. Omakase in Japanese simply means “I trust you, chef”. Leave it up to the chef to cook up a mind-blowing spread and wow you. 🥰

Now that we’ve locked down the basics, let’s look at our recommendations.
