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?
Clean decent restaurant. Some items more value for money than others. Chirashi was yummy and of good value. The beef bowl on the other hand - $49 for a small bowl of rice and 4 pieces of meat Not worth it, better off ordering something else on the menu. Decent variety of sake.
Loved the warm n personalised services of the friendly chefs. Sashimi was very fresh. Fantastic food, 1st class service at affordable prices! Highly recommend this place!

The setting is amazing. The food is amazing. We are so coming back to eat at this place. Highly recommend to anyone who loves Japanese food.
Very good quality of food and excellent service! Atmosphere is cozy and comfy. I think that the price is right for the quality of food offered.
Quaint place with good food and drinks. Small place with both counter and table seats. Salmon and uni don is a good combi (not in menu).
The service provided was superb. The waitress was ever attentive. When we needed help, she always greeted us with a smile on her face. Excellent experience.
