Customer Reviews

Eveything was perfect from food to service. Nice japanese hotpot to try with wide selection at buffet. Love the beef. Highly recommended.

Premium buffet was excellent, with a wide variety of meats, seafood and fried food. Soups were just of the right taste, not being too bland or mild. Service crew Dian and Doveca were incredibly helpful and did their best to serve us. Thank you!

CS Tay
I visited Suki-ya at Plaza Sing to lunch with my husband. I find the price of the food very reasonable, around $20+ buffet for normal spread. The service of the staff is excellent, super polite and patient in explaining to us the buffet spread. I will definitely return again in future.

Premium quality Japanese buffet, reasonably priced! Love their thick cut sashimi slices, so satisfying! Cawanmushi with salmon roe must try too. Delicious grilled and deep fried items. Decent menu spread, quality over quantity.

Hungry Heart
Decent Japanese buffet with tons of choices. Impossible to finish ordering the whole menu. I think the buffet prices are the same for lunch and dinner. Sashimi are our favorite – fresh and thick cut! Maximum satisfaction. Grilled fishessss with salt were also superb. We ordered the salmon, mackerel and cod fish multiple times. Grilled shisamo, squid and octopus tentacles, deep fried yellowtail cheek were repeated many times too. Great place for catch-up and gathering plus the free-flow iced green tea! So perfect. Your tummy would definitely be full with all the food and drink! LOL 😋🍱🍤🍣

Cindy Ong
My favorite japanese buffet place since pre-covid and am glad that they maintain the standard of the food throughout and there hasnt been any significantly huge increase in pricing over the years! When we first visited years back they were only a tiny unit. When we returned after covid they have expanded and took over the Ramen Champion unit. Now that it’s bigger with more tables, the wait for reservations is shorter and more likely to get a table during walk-ins. Favorite thing about this buffet is that the serving is really small. It’s prolly a bite or two kind of portion per serving. This is good cause it allows you to try more different items before you get full. And because it’s a buffet you can order as many times and servings you want if you like any of the items from the menu. Secondly will be the variety and quality. The sashimi is always fresh, thick cut but not too thick that it’s too much. Recommend to order the platter to try the different type of sashimi and you can go ahead to order your favorite sashimi individually after. Complimentary green tea hot and cold and ice creams are included in the buffet so there’s no top ups required unless you want to have other seafood or alcoholic drinks. Friendly staffs and fast service and you do not have to wait long for your food. Lastly, we noticed this trip that they have new items on the menu! This is a good move as for long time supporters like us we can look forward to new items when we revisit. On a side note, the bean sprout and beef teppanyaki today was a little too salty. Other than that everything else was perfect as it always has been!

Cosy little restaurant in the quiet neighbourhood of Greenwood. Took my friend here for her birthday celebration and we were delighted with the affordable a la carte buffet dishes, especially the beef cubes and prawn tempura. The sashimi was quite nice. Lovely staff members who were very sweet throughout our meal. Will definitely plan a revisit.

Rocco Romagnolo
I know and visit this place since 15 Years. One of the best all you can eat sushi place in town. Amazing food, prices are very decent and Gary is just awesome. The sashimi, wafu steak and the yuzu ice cream are the highlights for me.

Buffet in Singapore. They serve a wide variety of food from sashimi (salmon, tuna, octopus, hotate, salmon belly to name a few), to maki, gunkan and also hot food like udon, miso soup, cold soba, etc etc. All the food tasted great and the portions were good. Only thing I wish was that desserts were part of the buffet, but nonetheless I enjoyed it. The service staff were attentive and quick to clear finished plates which was good.

Buffet food was good – sashimi was fresh – beef was really yummy and the  cooked options were pretty  nice. Definitely would recommend this place to my friends.

Went for the high tea buffet, 3pm-6pm. Good spread of dishes in the omizu buffet and value for money. I like the grilled dishes especially the egg plant, grilled scallops and prawns. Free flow drinks and ice cream. Fast service. There’s also a new dish, 🌮 recommended to try the spicy salmon and prawns.

Customer Reviews

Sabrina Ng
Pleasantly surprised by food quality considering it was an ala carte buffet. Not a super huge buffet menu but all dishes ordered were tasty and well-executed and nicely presented. Worth the price imo. Friendly and attentive staff. Very nice place and not that crowded on Sat night. Kid friendly with high chairs available.

I was looking for a place to indulge in Japanese à la carte buffet which I have not done in eons and chanced upon this one after some Googling. I expected the food quality to be average, but it turned out to be few notches above that. Being a Mekajiki fan for its firm texture, I really like the freshness and thickness of the Mekajiki sashimi here. There is also fried Renkon chips and even Sirloin Beef Carpaccio, which are not so common items on buffet menu I think. There is a limit of 90 minutes for the meal, but it is really quite comfortable pace to savour numerous dishes on the menu.

Opted for the buffet and it was a great choice, as it was an ala carte buffet. There were quite a number of selections and the sashimi is fresh and thick, also their soft shell crab is so good we ordered a few times, fried rice is recommended and their basic item such as butter corn is good and we ended off with Häagen-Dazs ice cream! Only thing we didn’t like was the shabu as the soup broth is bland. Came in a group to have a birthday celebration and the staffs were polite and accommodating throughout our meal and there was even a cake surprise! Thank you for hosting us En Dining, will be back again.

Had lunch buffet. Great variety with fresh thick cuts of sashimi. Staff Joanne and Angela were friendly and prompt with service. Clean and great ambience, definitely will come again. Thank you Daniel. 🙂

Wide selection of sashimi, sushi, tempura, grilled meats and rice bowls at this 120 minutes all-you-can-eat quality Japanese ala carte buffet 🇯🇵. My favourite is their thick slices of fresh sashimi (love that they aren’t stingy with this) and aburi salmon sushi. Trust me, you’d be spoilt for options with the buffet selection. But if you’re planning to visit for ala carte, consider their Aburi Salmon Sushi or Hamachi. 🐟 The buffet is priced at $25.90++ for child and $48.90++ for adults (same price for lunch/dinner and weekday/weekends). Reasonably priced and worth visiting! ✨ Free parking tickets available too.

We had a wonderful dinner tonight at Tajimaya Yakiniku! We took the premium buffet and enjoyed many serves of the wagyu meat. We also enjoyed the sashimi that came with the buffet. The ops manager Andrew was very attentive. He noticed we were overcooking our meats and came to our table to give us tips and demonstrated on how to cook the meat perfectly. With his assistance we picked a wonderful sake that was truly smooth. So delicious! We will definitely be looking forward to coming back here!

Really enjoyed myself for the lunch buffet. Ate till I exploded. Definitely get the truffle onsen egg to dip your meats into. Scallops were also great.

The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Despite coming in close to the closing time, the staff tried their best to serve us by helping us bring food to our table and recommending dishes to try. They even gave us ice cream when we were leaving. The view from the restaurant is great. The sashimi was very thick and the mango pudding was really good. Considering the quality and variety of food, the price is pretty reasonable! Overall great experience, would like to come again! 🙂

Joshua Chew
The buffet is an incredible value with a diverse array of delicious Japanese dishes. 🍣 We loved the self-heating mini hotpot, perfect for cooking raw meats and veggies in the broth of our choice. The Igniri sushi and California rolls were a delightful combo, and the variety of fried dishes, from tempuras to karaage, left us drooling. 🍤 The selection is extensive, from a salad bar to baked fish, steamed sweet potato, Japanese curry, and stir-fried veggies. 🥗🍛 Exotic beverages like water chestnut added a unique touch, and the dessert section, especially the Matcha Ice cream, was a sweet finale. 🍨 Service was decent, with staff clearing plates, and the price is absolutely worth it. 🤑 Great location in town adds to the overall experience. 🌟 *Weekday lunch, no festive pricing yet. $35plus per pax inclusive of surcharges.

Have a very pleasant experience while dining here. Was having company lunch on 8th Feb 24. The service of the crew and manager is extremely fast and prompt. I’m amazed by how efficient they are when we have requests to made and it’s very commendable. The beef and pork are very delicious and not to mention the wafer and ice cream desserts. Price wise is also very reasonable. Will definitely recommends to my family and friends. Keep it up!!

Jacelyn Phang
Had the steamboat buffet and love the variety of vegetables + dipping sauce + drink selection (there’s non sugared green tea option💚). The Hokkiado ice cream was also yummy! 🍦 It’s an individual hot pot style and the pork belly slices are good too! 👍🏻 When the food items at the buffet counter are empty, the staff helps to refill very promptly. Free topping up of soup and generally friendly staff! ☺️ Parking: A lot of parking lots but the shopping mall is always packed with cars. So it might take while to find a lot.

J Tony
One of the best buffet I’ve had. I make it a point to go at least twice a month. The meats are very thinly sliced and that makes the most difference then other places. Weekday buffet lunch is now $22.70++ for shabu shabu. Still my preferred place to go for a hearty meal. Their BBQ also looks good. Recommended! Must try! Still my choice for a good meal. Been coming for years and has never been disappointed.
