With a name meaning ‘the day of meat’, Nikunohi is a Mecca for meat lovers, offering a hefty selection of premium meats prepared by chef Kensuke Sakai, famous for his appearance as the youngest ever contestant on Iron Chef. Singapore has no shortage of great Japanese restaurants, but this joint on Temasek Boulevard dishes up some of the finest yakiniku that the city-state has to offer. Make a reservation at Nikunohi and experience the hype for yourself.
Nikunohi takes the Japanese tradition of yakiniku and gives it a contemporary update, a modern ethos reinforced by its sleek wooden furniture and stylish setting. At this restaurant close to Singapore’s City Hall you’ll find an array of premium meats that can be grilled at your own table for a fun and interactive dining experience. With over twenty different types of meat to choose from, Singapore’s carnivorous crowd flock to Temasek Boulevard for a meaty feast.
Share some small tapas dishes like the Wagyu sashimi, cabbage with salted kelp, beef sinew stew and Korean seaweed, or feast on the Kiwami Ultimate Plate with six different cuts of meat including grilled sukiyaki, chuck eye, rib eye, chateaubriand, thick-sliced skirt and beef tongue.

Nice beef n set meal is adequate. Good value for money Service can be improved though Would recommend to people. Will visit again soon if got chance
Wonderful food and service. Our third time back and we enjoyed the both the cooked dishes as well as the BBQ meats. The chicken thigh is a favourite of our, well seasoned and juicy and affordable priced at $7 per portion which is good enough for 2 pax. We had the vegetable soup and porridge which was very hearty (I think they use beef broth) and comforting on a rainy evening! Service is excellent - attentive and helpful. The lady recognized us from our previous visit, which was very nice (and rare in Singapore).
Service by staff was excellent. Food was very yummy. Place felt a bit warm when we first walked in though. But no complaints overall. :)
It was a great experience! the meat was impeccable and the service was ever so observant and helpful. My family and i had a wonderful time there. Thank you!
Had a birthday celebration at Nikunohi. They have a family set promotion good for 2 adults and 1 kid, we had a party of 9 and ordered 3 sets plus a wagyu beef set. The meat quality is great, service is good too.
Celebrated my wife's birthday last night. Had the special beef, iberico pork, lava cake dessert and wine. Food was excellent, beef was well marbled and tasty. Pork was great as well. It was a quiet night so we got good attention from the waiter all night long. Only gripe is that they have limited bottles of house wine and they actually ran out of wine that we sampled. Other than that this place is really worth a try if you like good quality beef. Dessert was pretty good too.
Wonderful selection of waygu beef! Prices are reasonable and service is good too. Nikunohi is fast becoming one of our favourite restaurants, where we can get quality wagyu beef at reasonable prices.
Started off badly. Restaurant didn't receive my booking for 9 and the place was half full. We actually wanted to change to another restaurant. Luckily two side-by-side tables finished early and they were cleared for us. The assistant manager took the effort to pay extra attention to us which saved the night. The manager himself was quite useless. The food was good and the average spend was $50 per person. Overall after the bad start the experience was good.
Seems to have lost a little of its special experience since my last visit in May. Perhaps got to do with its manager who is away hence leaving behind a drop in service standards. Foods are still as fresh but the environment is not as lively. They have since introduced a 90 mins buffet at $45++. This is rather worth it if u r a meat lover and especially if in big groups
Staff was very friendly and food was superb! There were only 4 of us, but we were given a big table. Which was handy as there were lots of space needed for the different dishes. The Wagyu beef simply melted in our mouth. Excellent dinner.
