Bugis might not be the obvious place to grab a spot of sushi, but bear with us. Amid the mosques, curry houses and assorted Indian influences that abound between Nicoll Highway and Kallang Road, you can find Fukusen Japanese Restaurant, ensconced in the Hotel Clover on Jin Sultan. Their take on the cuisine of the Land of the Rising Sun is exquisite and indulgent: take on one of their 5, 7 or 8 course options as laid out by cousins and chefs Liow Wei Siong and Liow Wei Kim, packed with Japanese specialities laid out in a Singapore style, such as spinach scallop carpaccio and wagyu tata aburi, grilled beef with egg yolk. Book a table now – they do get busy so we heavily recommend it – and take the MRT out to Nicholl Highway for a superlative meal.
Perhaps not always recognised in Singapore is that high quality food can also be surprisingly affordable. What’s more, this type of food is often found in the areas of Singapore you might not necessarily expect, but, amid the mosques, curry houses and assorted Indian influences that abound between Nicoll Highway and Kallang Road, Fukusen Japanese Restaurant is one to behold. Set inside in Hotel Clover on Jin Sultan, here you’ll find a superb range of Japanese dishes that are affordable whilst still making use of premium produce flown in twice weekly from Japan all the way to Bugis.
Fukusen Japanese Restaurant focuses on bento and rice bowl sets for lunch and then Omakase dining – Omakase being a Japanese phrase that means ‘I’ll leave it up to you’ – in the evening. Everything is fresh and everything is beautifully presented, just like the dining space itself, which may explain why this Bugis restaurant is so popular among Japanese food lovers that aren’t even staying at the hotel. People of Singapore, what are you waiting for?
The staff here were really friendly. We got the 7-course omakase. Food was delicious and well-paced. I will definitely come back for a second round! No doubt.

Good food. Nice environment. Onyl thing is parking might be hard to find during peak hours. Price for food was reasonable given how fresh the food is.
Fukusen is a hidden gem. Sashimi was fresh and staff were really helpful and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience there. Will definitely be back again.
Attentive staff, good ambience and great quality food at a very reasonable price. Will definitely return to try other dishes. Keep up the good work. Thumbs up!
Service is good and food is fresh. They also put a candle on the ice cream and sang the birthday song for my friend when they found out it is his birthday.
Great food and management as always, a pleasure to head for over an awesome meal. Generous amount of hospitality from the management itself, and reservations need to be made prior the day
It was abit difficult to find it as it was hidden in Hotel Clover. But the service was good and the food was served promptly. Nice and quiet place to have dinner.
Fresh sashimi and good variety of selection on the menu. Love the foie gras chawamushi and the Omakase donburi , the rice bowl choices look interesting ! Especially for the Uni bowl.
