Super excellent Omakase dining experience: all the food were extremely fresh and prepared perfectly. Compliments to head Chef Masaa who did my Omakase, he was wonderful and so was the amazing food!
was our first time there, we ordered lunch omakase + botan set with an extra order of wagyu steak - if you have the budget, i strongly recommend the wagyu steak - it's life changing. Chefs (Itamae) are all japanese and very friendly. while the food may not be super instagram-worthy (sushi are served individually and not in a platter - which forces you to be in the present and enjoy the process) the quality and dining experience is awesome. will definitely be back again.
That was awesome! I enjoyed a genuine Japanese Sushi cuisine. I can recommend all kind of people. Mr. Suzuki is a professional Sushi shef from Japan.
Great ambience and quality of food and produce Subite techniques and excellent service I would readily recommend to any of my other friends Good selection of sakes and paired wines
Food is refined. The price of the Set lunch at $120-80 is reasonable given the quality. The only minuses are the slow service. The Chef has to serve the other guest while you wait for your turn to be served then 3rd or 5th course. Over 1.45hr lunch easily. Chef asked if we wanted more; and we assumed it was out of good will, when he prepared additionally 2 more sushi. Turned out the extra two sushi costs $70 (for $65 you could have eaten the Chirashidon). What a bummer. They should have communicated that to us. Our bill for two came out to be about S$400. Exceeded our Budget n
Ishi is one of the newest but also one of the best sushiyas in Singapore! They have affordable lunch sets and also value for money sushi courses. Seafood is of top quality and the Chefs are very friendly and attentive. Loved the fresh fish and varied seasoning used for the sushi! The sake ice cream at the end was a nice surprise too!
Perfect dining experience! Quality food with memorable experience. Chef and service staff were very engaging, friendly and professional. Chef takes care of us really well with humour as well as informative about the food he presented. Please choose omakase to enjoy full experience at Ishi. Will definitely come back
Excellent food and service! It's a cozy set up with just 12 seats. They pay attention to every detail and the chefs are also really friendly, making conversation with the diners and taking the effort to explain each dish when it's served.
Great experience. Quality sushi, attentive service. We had the omakase set. Our chef was attentive (waited for us while we were chatting, to provide info about the course we had). I will go back again when I feel like indulging.
A gem! Excellent ambience and some of the best sushi in town. Omakase only but with a few price points that make it more affordable ( or more digestible for those who prefer less). Add-ons like tempura and waygu steak we had were however disappointing.
Captivating omakase dining experience in an intimate setting. Ishi has an open kitchen with the most cheerful chef team who are excited to educate and share their passion with you over the counter.
Food is top notch at a reasonable pricing. Had the lunch omakase and it was well paced and had soke surprises. Service is good as well. My sake glass is never empty.
Food was awesome and very fresh, alongside refreshing presentation. Sake ice-cream was a pleasant surprise. Service was also extremely attentive. Really liked the counter seats which run along the open kitchen.
Staff knowledge of sake is good .food is prepare in front of you after you place the ordered that’s important especially sashimi and sushi price wise is not super expensive compared to similar outfits
Excellent services and great food (both raw and cooked) Classy without being stuffy. Might not be cheap but value for money. Great ambience sitting at the sushi bar.
A wonderful experience if you are looking for a quiet and personal experience watching the chef whipping out awesome Japanese food. The food is fresh and tasty.
Very good sushi priced reasonably. An deal place for a business lunch or dinner. Great ambience and location. Impeccable and discrete service. Easy parking. Highly recommended
