Yup, finding cheap omakase in the city is not impossible – here's where you need to go
Finding cheap eats in Singapore is certainly easy, but when it comes to omakase, it’s a different story. Make a beeline for these Japanese restaurants (and one that has all sorts of cuisines) for cheap omakase in Singapore.
The waiting list for Teppei is pretty insane (sometimes it goes up to six months), but that’s because their omakase is super duper affordable (from $50 per pax). There are two seatings every evening and only 20 diners get a spot for each of them.

It’s hard to beat Sushi Kou’s wallet-friendly omakase sets ($50, $80, $100) – appetisers, sashimi, grilled items, fried fish, braised dishes, sushi, and dessert, all these creations showcase fresh seasonal produce from Tokyo, Kyoto, and Hokkaido.

The Snack Culture Company
Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night there’s a special omakase degustation menu on offer ($59 per pax), which consists of nine small plates inspired by flavours from all around the world. The creations change all the time, but items like edamame with Thai tom yum espuma and Korean pork dumplings in chilled bak kut teh consommé have been featured before.

At this Japanese restaurant helmed by chef Lawrence Chia, typically you’d have to pay more than a hundred bucks for an omakase set. Most aren’t aware that there’s an early bird special – pop by from 6pm to 7:30pm to get it at $68 instead.
