Who says you can't get quality with quantity?

Welcome to the Promised Land of gourmet bottomless Japanese delicacies, where piling your table high with plates incurs no unnecessary judgement from restaurant-goers. Admit it: Walking into a buffet and being able to pick any (or most) dishes with no care for the price tags triggers a sense of almost animalistic power in the best of us. If you’re looking to feast grandly on mounds of sushi, wagyu, or pots of shabu shabu, look no further.


This all-you-can-eat establishment has been around since 2008, and yet its quality still stands impressively against time. Rather than mass-producing food items in one go, skilled chefs await your orders and prepare your dish, ala-carte style. While you’re there, be sure to get the Ebi Mentai Mayo, smoky grilled prawns slathered in the ever-popular mentaiko sauce. Starting from $38.90, available at Four Points by Sheraton Singapore, 382 Havelock Rd.


With lunch prices that go as low as $22.80 for an extensive spread, buffet institution Kiseki truly lives up to its motto of being a “Mega Japanese buffet at mini prices”. Unlike most buffet places, there's no time limit implemented (other than the closure of their lunch/dinner services) to rush you into scarfing down your last bowl of soba. Finish off the seemingly bottomless meal with a serving of fluffy waffles and a scoop of gelato. Starting from $22.80 (Lunch) and $33.80 (Dinner), available at Orchard Central, 181 Orchard Road.

Kuishin Bo

Walking into a restaurant literally named ‘glutton’ (and synonymous with the term ‘food connoisseur’), you’re going to expect a reason to justify the gluttony. Kuishin Bo hands you that reason, in the form of over 100 categories of wa-shoku that range from tempura to Oden (Japanese pot stew). Prepare to make several rounds at the fresh Zuwaigani (snow crab) stand, as the acclaimed premium Hokkaido crab is free-flow for dinner service. Starting from $25.90 (Lunch) and $49.41 (Dinner), available at outlets here.

Lewin Terrace Oh! Matcha

Running till the end of March (Mar 29), the Japanese-French fusion restaurant offers a free-flow matcha-centric dessert bar for a damage of $38. While $38 may sound extravagant, it is important to bear in mind that genuine matcha does not come cheap. Some highlights from the menu include the uji matcha madeleine, puddings, ice cream, cheesecakes and Chitose ichigo tiramisu and clafoutis. Only available on weekdays from $38 at Lewin Terrace, 23-B Coleman Street

Shaburi and Kintan Buffet

Picture this: 90 minutes of pure, unadulterated marbled meat. It’s just you against time, and perhaps your stomach capacity. Four tiers of buffet packages await in increasing exorbitance, starting with the regular flow of chicken- and pork-focused cuts, and advancing to the buttery soft wagyu cuts with thin flecks of striped fats carved into each piece. You'll leave wearing the smell of grilled meat on your clothes like a badge of gastronomical honor. Starting from $22.80 (Lunch) and $29.80 (Dinner), available at JEM, 50 Jurong Gateway Road.


Suki-ya has made a name for itself in Singapore, being a franchise with 10 outlets spanning both heartland and town districts. The concept is a familiar one—a choice of two soup bases, your typical selection of hot pot ingredients (fishballs, mushroom, noodles, etc), trays of thinly sliced beef, chicken and pork, and a sauce bar. Still a reliable go-to spot for comforting shabu shabu. Starting from $18.90 (Lunch) and $24.90 (Dinner) available at outlets here.
