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 wagyu beef bowl, uni bowl and chirashi don is what I always look forward to. Service is warm and sincere. A place I go back to time and again.
The environment as well as the quality of their food was really really good. Not forgetting that the portion given was pretty generous. Highly recommended!
Great dining experience. friendly chef. Awesome food, special items on menu. great ambience. will definitely be back! one of the best japanese restaurants around. :)
tried the uni, wagyu don and chirashi don. the wagyu was quite good, the sashimi was fresh, but the portion is a little small. dont mind going back again
Good service, quality food👍 Ordered premium wagyu don and their sashimi don. About $40+/don, slightly pricey but the ingredients used are of premium quality as well. Very cosy spot.
Cozy place, superb food and affordable. I love the food so much that I have been there 3 times within 2 month & have intro by good friend there!
Great service from a friendly crew. Chief Chef Momo is very accommodating and customised the Omakase to our needs. It was a great dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday.
Food is good, each serving is good for two to share if want to try varities of dishes. But air conditioner is insufficient when the crowds start to come.
Nice food! Recommended for sure ! The ambience was good and the waiters were attentive to us. We will certainly return soon to try out other dishes ! 👍🏻
This is my second visit to fukusan, The restaurant served Nice and fresh sashimi. Though the price was slightly on the high side but Will definitely go back again.
