Part of the new Eat at Seven family at City Hall’s Suntec City Mall, Nigiro Cafe is pushing the limits with their incredible Italian-Japanese fusion cuisine. You might ask yourself, why would anyone mix two cuisines that already taste amazing on their own? Left in the hands of amateurs, such a concept might not work, but at Nigiro Cafe, you’ll find that the flavours of both cuisines are amplified, creating an extraordinary dining experience found nowhere else in Singapore.
Nigiro, or origin spelled backwards, stands proudly among six other Japanese restaurants in Suntec City Mall’s Eat at Seven complex. Offering Japanese-Italian fusion cuisine, Nigiro stuns diners with specialities ranging from hearty pastas to decadent desserts. A comfortable environment with exposed brick and laid-back furnishings make Singapore’s Nigiro ideal for a lunch or dinner with the whole family after a day spent shopping at Suntec.
Found inside of Suntec City Mall on Singapore’s Temasek Boulevard, Nigiro Cafe is a unique restaurant blending two of the world’s finest cuisines: Japanese and Italian. Try mains like the miso-seared swordfish with mushroom soup, calamari, deep-fried potato and creme brulee, the lamb with cranberry sauce and miso cod fish or the incredible grilled dory fish with lemon herb sauce, prawn & broccoli gratin and tomato soup. Nigiro does a mean burger too, so be sure to give one a try. The menu changes often, check in and see what’s on special at this City Hall restaurant. Reserve in advance to secure your spot!

Good food , its my 3rd visit to enjoy the lunch set. Good service by the waiter an Indian guy who can speak Mandarin. Will come back again.
Great Food and Excellent Service, if I had to summarise it in a nutshell. Walking in, one couldn't help but think that this is some Japanese-fusion wannabe Cafe but thankfully the food way-surpassed our initial impression. We had the seafood platter, along other dishes and very much enjoyed them. Prawns and scallops were succulent, crab was sweet, mussels were juicy and the veges were vibrant etc. The mushroom soup was hearty, and the bread was light and inviting. My parents really enjoyed the meal which says a lot considering that they aren't easy people to impress food-wise (which is why I'd rather take them out than cook for them). If I had to be honest, the one chink in their armour is their deserts, which I felt were on the heavy side. For one, the chocolate cake could have been matched with ice cream rather than the thick dollop of custard. But all in all, we had a good time there, and will be back soon.
This is a pretty little place adjacent to an attractive rooftop garden overlooking the Singapore skyline, so the ambiance aspect is covered. The food is of an acceptable standard although i expected more given the executive chef's credentials. It was a bit on the oily side, especially for Japanese cooking. The wait staff were attentive, discreet and most importantly, left us alone most of the time, only appearing when needed. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and no one gave us grief for bringing in cakes from outside, so that's a job well done. They also very accommodatingly allowed us to redeem a stack of free coffee coupons that we picked up at the entrance.
Got to know this cafe thru a promotion that does not make sense to me. The promotion comes in a virtual coupon that gives me a free coffee or premium tea (cost between $5 - $8) when I ordered a pasta, and only valid between 2pm to 5pm. The pasta alone costs around $16. At the same menu, there is pasta lunch set which comes with salad, soup, pasta and coffee, pricing at $15.90. The cafe manager redeemed my coupon, which turned out wasted as I ordered the pasta lunch set instead, which is more value for money than the promotion. The food was tasty, and cafe setting is calm and relaxing. The service staff was very patient. Overall, will go to cafe again.
Went back a second time in a week. Ordered the seafood platter (again) and some pasta this time. The spaghetti (with bacon and lots of greens) was an eye-opening delight with its hints of charred bacon, and firm Al Dente texture. Service was excellent too. Aisha and the chef took prompt action in rectifying our servings when we remarked that the platter was slightly less impressive than our first time. Absolutely take my hat off to them for their customer service.
I had a good experience dining at Nigiro Cafe. I had the Caesar salad with grilled prawns and while it tasted great at first, the sauce and the cheese flavour became a bit overwhelming as time went by. Overall, the food quality was good though.
All three pastas that we had were very tasty but the uni pizza was so-so and took a really long time (more than 40 mins even though waiting time was supposed to be 20). Service was prompt and pleasant and they were really nice to have provided us a free slice of whoopie cake to celebrate our friend's birthday, the cake itself was also too dry and too sweet.
