The M Hotel Singapore along Anson Road is more a dining, drinking and entertainment hub plus four-star accommodation than it is a straight ahead hotel, with a bar known for its live music revue and not one but two onsite restaurants, open to the public as well as guests. One of these is Hokkaido Sushi Restaurant, way up on the 9th floor and home to a large, atmospheric dining area with a 14-seater sushi counter and four private rooms available for reservation. The sushi, sashimi, tempura, hand-rolls and many other classics of Japanese cuisine are created from ingredients flown in daily from the kitchen’s trusted suppliers, making this a top-flight sushi restaurant in Tanjong Pagar.
At Hokkaido Sushi Restaurant, the utmost care has been taken to ensure that only the freshest premium ingredients make it to table – and this isn’t an empty boast. This genuinely top-quality Japanese restaurant towers over the competitive Tanjong Pagar dining scene in more ways than one. Yes, it’s on the 9th floor of the M Hotel Singapore down Anson Road; but it’s the fact that Hokkaido Sushi has gone to great lengths to seek out accredited suppliers for everything from the rice to the seasonal fresh fish, beef, sake and drinks that makes the place stand out as a sushi restaurant par excellence.
Both the rice used in the sushi (nanatsuboshi) and the rice that accompanies the restaurant’s traditional Japanese dishes (stickier, sweeter yumepirika) is imported from Hokkaido by Tawayara; the fish and seafood (including the prized otoro tuna belly, plus many Japanese fruit and vegetable produce) is air-freighted not from the famous Tsukiji market in Tokyo but from Sapporo in Hokkaido, offering a different range than is the norm in Singapore’s best sushi restaurants; the beef is from the same supplier – Japan Ohmi Wagyu – of Shiga Wagyu offered to the Edo-era Japanese emperor! Clearly a must for any East Asian food aficionado, this is one Tanjong Pagar Japanese restaurant whose pedigree demands a booking.
Came with my friend, had a good dining experience. Good food and good service. Defo will recommend to my friends and come back again. Worth to visit.
Nice food and atmosphere. Staff was friendly too. But selection of food was quite little considering it's a premium buffet. I will definitely go again!
Cosy place , friendly staff, good choice, nice food, highly recommend
Food was good - sashimi was very fresh, century egg tofu was delicious! Service staff were very attentive and friendly and great value for money during weekday lunch for their ala carte buffet. Overall awesome experience, will definitely return again.
The best part of the buffet for me was the complimentary sashimi platter which included scallop and otoro sashimi. The various grilled fish, salmon and Hamachi sashimi and hand rolls did not disappoint either. Food serving was prompt. I would have preferred to have a hot green tea pot at the table for easier refills.
Sashimi was very fresh. The Pitan Toufu was delicious! Chawanmushi was above average. Book a table by the window as it can get rather claustrophobic inside.
