About Hide Yamamoto
Due to popular demand, please make your reservations at Hide Yamamoto at least one day in advance.
Hide Yamamoto is Singapore’s the flagship restaurant of the chain (the other is doing brisk trade in Jakarta) that has taken Japanese food beyond cliched sushi joints. Under the guidance of Hidemasa Yamamoto, the head chef from which this Bayfront Avenue restaurant takes its name, diners are invited to choose from one of the kitchen’s five concepts when they dine at Hide Yamamoto. Diners can choose from: sushi, teppanyaki, robatayaki, ramen and the bar. These discrete elements sit stiffly next to each other, each honouring their culinary traditions.

Diners at Hide Yamamoto are faced with a decision the moment they enter into the Bayfront Avenue’s chic dining room – do they want to opt for sushi, teppanyaki, robatayaki, ramen, or are they just here for the (wonderfully well-stocked) bar? This decision is made all the more difficult once diners notice the skill and care that goes into each of the restaurant's offerings. The sushi bar works only with the freshest fish and is prepared by the restaurant’s famously friendly chefs. Whereas if you go for the teppanyaki you’re liable to find your chefs absorbed tending to the smoky meats before serving up searing hot morsels of this Japanese favourite. If you’re tempted by robatayaki (for Japanese cuisine newbies, that’s Japanese barbecue, literally fireside-cooking) you’ll find meat and vegetables being roasted and chunks of wagyu beef too. The ramen side serves up noodles made in-house and doled out with warming favourites.
Of course, Hide Yamamoto also has a particularly good bar with a cocktail menu enough to draw punters over to the Bayfront Avenue’s restaurant for the bar alone. The signature sake cocktail is a guest favourite, but Quandoo recommends going for the shochu cocktail to get a real sense of the bartender’s skills. This wall-to-wall coverage of Japanese food (and drinks) is the brainchild of chef Hidemasa Yamamoto, whose restaurant pedigree runs across Europe and the United States. While Yamamoto’s other restaurants in Singapore display much of his international experience, in Hide Yamamoto he has returned to his Japanese roots, and it’s paying dividends indeed. This is a serious restaurant with serious ambition, and as such diners are well-advised to make a reservation before they visit Hide Yamamoto – getting a table can be difficult otherwise.
As usual, Chef Max's teppanyaki skills does not disappoint the palate. One of the better teppanyaki in Singapore. Chef Max tries to vary his cooking style to make every dining experience different. Recommended
Great service and food quality. I had the weekend lunch special which boasted good variety and fresh sushi. All the food was made skillfully and efficiently.
Wonderful food masterfully prepared! Food at the teppanyaki counter well prepared by teppanyaki master! Great ambience, lovely family restaurant. Ramen was tasty as was the dessert.
Enjoyed the lunch prepared by Chef Max. It was one of the best teppanyaki that I ever had. Good recommendations on the type of dishes to share with my Wife.
The food at Hide Yamamoto is refreshing & unique, wonderfully plated and really delicious :) Also it is definitely more worth it to come for the lunch set! We ate the lunch set and the ramen.
The sushi and sashimi were good. The grilled meat was average. We ordered the robata wahygu and the pork ribs. The wahyu was good. However the pork rib was difficult to eat as it was not off the bone. Perhaps this is due to the nature of robata cooking but we still expected better. The eating atmosphere was smart casual and quite relaxing. Service was good but not to the standard of fine dinning. All in all, it was an enjoyable experience mainly due to watching the robata counter. Not a "wow" experience but enjoyable.
Excellent food, beautifully prepared. Staff very good. A little pricey but a great experience overall. Teppanyaki tables are a good way to share an intimate evening as there is only the food preparation and each other to focus on. You can not watch the rest of the diners in other parts of the restaurant.
Service was good, but food was pricey. The premium sashimi dish was definitely not what I expected with that kind of price tag, consisting of normal fishes such as tuna, salmon, yellow tail etc. Uni dishes were good, especially the claypot uni one, and they prepare very good foie gras. Beyond that, felt that overall experience lacked a wow factor.
reservation was taken accurately. The preferred seating was also granted. However, the restaurant may have missed my "birthday celebration" note or they don't have such practise. Had to make arrangement on the dining day itself when I order the dessert.
The Tonkatsu ramen was delicious, and so was the Cod fish. That said, service was a bit rush, even though there was relatively no one dining at the restaurant on a weekday noon. Some may enjoy the peace and quiet!
The freshness of the ingredients, the expert preparation of the dishes and the friendliness of the teppenyaki chef serving us came together to provide an exquisite dining experience. Looking forward to going again!
Quality of food is great. Wide selection is available. Service of the staff is good. Only downside is the cushioned seats are stained due to long usage. It will be good to replace them to upkeep the image.
Staff is very frendky to our urgent request. After we found out that guest was not able to eat beef, staff arranged a chicken instead. We appreciated a flexibility of staff.
Service and food was great!!! we got the lunch set (4 courses for $38). While the appetiser and mains were great, the dessert was not! Although I have to admit that the green tea was very overpriced.
We enjoyed the food very much, especially the grilled spring chicken with truffled rice and the chocolate affogato. The children liked the ramen and cha-shu don. Overall, a pleasant experience.
In overall, great food, very fresh sashimi and crispy vegetables, great n creative lamb rack, nice place, good service with reasonable price. The dessert, green tea tiramizu is just average
The food was excellent - every dish exceeded our expectations - and the service was extremely attentive. We had a highly enjoyable dining experience, and already planning to return.
Great food and ambience. Would definitely return to try out more of the cuisine. Lunch sets are reasonable with generous servings and portions. Environment is ideal for business meetings.
Good service from the staff. Interesting sauces for some of the food like foie gras with yuzu sauce and gyoza with sesame and chili oil sauce. Overall, good food but comes with a price.
Wonderful food and great service. I highly recommend the grilled chicken with truffle rice. The other favorite is the tenderloin at the robata. Will definitely visit it again.
Great experience, service and food. I strongly recommend it. The sushi tastes great and the location above the Casino is awesome. Great for friends or couple dinner.
Loved the food and service here. Food was delicious and yummy. Did not get to try the Teppanyaki this time round and will do so on my next visit. Will be back!
Very Nice ambiance. Food is very decent. Price is reasonable. It was my wife's birthday, the staff surprised her with a birthday song on her desert.
My friend and I had the $38 lunch set. Value for money lunch set considering the quality ingredients and good chefs. We will definitely visit again.
Great service and food is served fresh and delicious. Overall a great dining experience! Especially liked the grilled lobster, grilled to perfection. Will definitely return! :)
Was there for a birthday treat. Had the Ramen, Sashimi, Lamb, and sushi. Sashimi is very fresh, the lamb is tender and juicy. Would definitely recommend
Lunch set menu was good and tasty. Quiet lunch venue with attentive service staff. Only negative I would say was that the green tea is expensive at 5 bucks per cup.
The food was good! We had the sushi set and grill whole young chicken with truffle rice. However, there were stains on the sofas seats. The staff was chit chatting at the side and was not attentive enough.
was very disappointed with the food and service. we were told, at 6.15pm, after being seated that we could not order anything from the teppan side because they couldnt cope. at 6.15pm! the uniqueness, i thought , of Hide Yamamato was the flexibility and variety available to the diner to order from sushi to grilled to teppan. unfortunately, that wasnt the case. the manager was not any better when we asked why we couldnt as it was still so early. he had no reply and was generally not very service-oriented. we were then told by our waitress that we couldnt order dishes from the New Year Special as it was 31 Dec. However, we realised that the patrons sitting next ordered from the New Year Special Menu and was served. For the price that we paid, there are definitely far better restaurants to go to. Sorely disappointed by this "celebrity" restaurant.
Very good service, pretty pricey (as expected) but well worth every dollar. Will come here again once I have some extra cash on my hands!
Visited on a weekday. The weekday set lunch was reasonably priced. The choices available for set lunch were adequate. Food served was of good quality and the sashimi was fresh.
Excellent food! Wonderful healthy lunch of grilled fish and an assortment of tempura served with delicious quality chawanmushi, rice and miso soup. Thank you! 👍🏻
Nice experience and ambience. Friendly staff. Definitely a place to go. Will come back again when visit Singapore. Highly recommended. Keep up the good work!
awesome food. the ramen was great. chirashi don was good and the sashimi was very fresh. good service as well. highly recommend to any one.
Excellent Food and Service. Well worth every cent. Get the private rooms if you can. The chef was very friendly, helpful and informative. Well done
The restaurant was not overly crowded on a Saturday afternoon which was good. The waiters were attentive yet not intrusive. Most of all, the food was fresh and good.
fabulous experience! pricey but definitely recommending it for anniversaries and celebrations. went with my wife and the service was spectacular. not to mention the food was mind blowing.
For such a reputable restaurant, service was dismal. The waitress didn't even know how to describe the dessert when we asked for a description. Additionally, the waitress spilled some water when our glasses were refilled and she did not even bother to come back with a cloth to wipe the mess up. Food quality was also mediocre, however one can't complain too much as the set lunches were priced competitively.
The attention provided by the waiters/waitresses aren't exactly what you would usually expect from a celebrity chef restaurant. Also, although not a must, it would be a nice gesture from them to serve up some complimentary dessert to commemorate our wedding anniversary. Food was fantastic though.
Great tasting food!! everything that comes out from the BBQ pit tasted extraordinary !! And the desserts got me blown away! Will def be back for more!!
Great food - quality ingredients and great atmosphere; especially at grill area. Comprehensive menu, they even have umeshu and sochu. Excellent service as well from wait staff.
Food was great and meticulously prepared right before you. Attentive and thoughtful service. Good vent system which made it minimally smokey unlike most other teppanyaki experiences.
Food is excellent. Service is average. Ambient is average. It is a bit pricey. It is a restaurant definitely worthwhile to re-visit but prepare to pay.
Food was excellent. Service was very pleasant though the waiter was a little inexperienced. The charcoal grilled pork ribs were wonderful as was the teppan cod.
The food was impeccable as expected. Service had much to improve - staff service was at best basic. Everything needed to be asked for or told, down to top up of drinks.
I still prefer Mikuni, better in price and dishes. The speed of the serving is too overwhelming that you have to choose to eat fast or let the dish cool down. Definitely there won't be second visit. The service is great, though.
Nice food! Good and quick service! Will go again to try other food there. Just a bit too noisy to have any conversation during meal.
Online booking smooth and fast response. Nice foods and comfort place. I will introduce to someone and also will try again if go Singapore later
The waitress are friendly, very helpful and know how to recommend good food. The food is delicious too. The restaurant is simple and yet elegant.
Food and service was excellent. Staff dimmed lights and brought out deserts for birthday celebration. Nice surprise for our dinner.
