About Suki-Ya - Marina Square
Joining the kaleidoscopic throng of restaurants at the Marina Square shopping complex, Suki-Ya offers something that most other Japanese hot pot restaurants in Singapore are simply too afraid to: an all-you-can-eat shabu shabu and sukiyaki dining experience. With so many Suki-Ya restaurants scattered about the city, there’s no problem with handling the demand. However, with fantastic deals luring diners in from Raffles Boulevard and the Marina Bay area, plus a regular menu packed with delicious brothy goodness, it’s always advisable to book a table in advance.

Suki-Ya is a Japanese shabu shabu and sukiyaki restaurant with a heart of gold. There are many outlets around Singapore, but the Marina Square restaurant is reliably packed to the rafters with gaggles of diners tucking into the all-you-can-eat hot pot on offer. Foot traffic from Raffles Boulevard ratchets up a good few notches when the time comes to claim one of Suki-Ya’s incredibly good value meal deals. The all-you-can-eat Suki-Ya buffet is the most popular, but so is the after-school shabu shabu buffet – a big hit with students local to Marina Bay.
It gets better if you head to Suki-Ya’s Marina Square location with a group of four or more friends or the whole family from 6pm onwards. Japanese shabu shabu and sukiyaki is best enjoyed when dining gets social, so gather the clan and find Suki-Ya’s Marina Bay local outlet to enjoy a massive 25% off your bill. Once settled in, choose your weapons. Singapore’s Suki-Ya restaurants have an enviable list of sauces, soup bases, meat selections, and a healthy salad bar to pick through.
the soup and the food taste good. however, some of dishes does not replace faster. also it should hire more staff to serve the customer.
Nice dining experience. Excellent service. Been a regular for this outlet. The staffs here are friendly and very prompt with request. Will be back again!
The location of the restaurant is good and food was good too. It is value for money and my friends and I enjoyed ourselves very much. Ambience was average but the service made up for it.
Pleasant environment. The restaurant is a good place for friends to gather for steamboat. I will definitely recommend friends to visit this great place again.
Was first greeted by the friendly manager when I first entered. My friends and I were amused by the sense of humor of the bespectacled waiter who made our gathering more memorable and enjoyable. A comfy atmosphere for friends and families to spend time together. The variety of choice of soup base and ingredients catered well to the differing tastes and preferences of my groups of friends. Would highly recommend this place.
When we arrived, the restaurant staff could not find our reservation. They were also busy preparing tables for a group of over 60 tourists. Eventually, they found a table for us and we scurried to get food before the huge group arrived. The whole dining experience was not fabulous as you can imagine, but I must say that one of the staff, Troy, tried his best to ensure we got our food and drinks refilled quickly. I will likely not return though as I learnt that this restaurant frequently host tourist groups for dinner.
With the current 1-for-1 promotions for OCBC cardholders (Mon – Fri, 11.30am – 4.00pm. Valid at all outlets except Plaza Singapura. Ends 29 Feb 2016) this was a very good deal. While the range of ingredients is not fantastic, it is sufficient. The soup were tasty and both the beef and pork were good. Worth a visit if you have an OCBC card.
The service was ok because even though i made a reservation, the restaurant in charge couldnt find it. They were able to seat us immediately as the restaurant was rather empty. i have tried sukiya at bugis+ many years back but the variety of veg and other selection seem to have reduced. Same for drinks selection. Soup base was decent but not fantastic. Given the price point, i think i can accept this quality of food and service.
We have 9 adults, 1 infant & 1 kid. After we seated, told them about the seating, one of the staff told us, by right they don't accept online booking on Friday, Saturday, eve and public holiday. So why in the first place accept our online booking and gave us 8 seater. It was so uncomfortable to seat in such manner. Please kindly do something on the systems, don't make other people fall in such state.
The food was very fresh, however the choices of meat are limited to just one type of chicken pork and beef. Service was good and efficient in getting what you want. There was no queue when I was there at 1 pm, however best to make a reservation just in case. Would definitely come back again!
The readiness of the staff to accede to any request was impeccable. They were fast, responsive and served with a smile. The current Iberia pork and Wagyu beef promotion is definitely a steal! However, was slightly disappointed with the range of drinks offered. The lychee drink tasted like water.
good service, always helping us clear our empty trays efficiently, food was good too. overall, enjoyed our time there, although it would be nice to have an even wider selection of food. but the cheese tofu was really good :)
Larger than normal portions of meats served here! As with the other outlets, poor choice of fruits available; though the $1++ ice cream "buffet" add-on is quite tempting lol. Not so crowded weekdays afternoons, so good place to gather a few friends and enjoy a nice meal :)
For us it was a fast food restaurant. No atmosphere at all. The quantity of the food was more than enough. We missed the sesame sauce. Quality of the meat was general and it was still a little bit frozen (wet). We wanted to order a bottle of saké as mentioned on the card but there was nothing in stock. When we finished and asked for the check we saw they had Waguy beef as well, nobody told us.
The soup bases are tasty - our favourite is the Sukiyaki broth - sweet and tasty! The staff were attentive and friendly. What we like is also the free flow of ice cream after the meal which helped to cool us down after our hot steam boat!
Quite a pleasant experience. The waiter was kind enough to allow us to change the soup base as we didn't quite like the soy milk one. However, the soup took too long to boil, we waited 20 mins approximately. And this took up almost half of the buffet time. Luckily they didn't chase us out.
Good service. As we came after the lunch rush hour, the staff did not chase us away after the 60mins limit. Varieties of food were not too bad and the soup base were yummy. I brought a foreign friend with as this was the first time she had steamboat and she thoroughly enjoyed it!
Our booking was recorded as per our order. We didn't need to wait for long time to enter the restaurant. When we visited the restaurant and said our booking through quandoo, they identified it quickly
The service staff were very attentative and quick in their response. Food was great! Especially the beef and cheesy meatball! I had a great lunch and will definitely recommend the restaurant to my friends!
Good food and customer service. I enjoyed the meat and variety of vegetables. Only thing is the sauce bowls are left empty unless we inform the staff of it. Also they don't have the sesame sauce, instead they have a spicy peanut sauce which is just not my cup of tea.
Food and environment is great at Suki-Ya! I really enjoy the food at suki-ya! The service was great, all the staff there are very nice and helpful EXCEPT for the cashier. We enquired about the bill and the cashier gave us a rude reply and a bad attitude. Overall, although i still love the food at suki-ya, i will never go back to marina's outlet ever again..
Decent and nice value for money food. Meat and veg and soup bases were simple and satisfying. Small ice cream cups as dessert to round off the meal Helpful and quick responding staff despite it being a relatively busy night.
The manager at the restaurant was great! He gave us a 20% discount upon finding out that it was a birthday celebration. Replenishment of the ingredients were slower initially but gradually picked up :) Overall, great experience at Suki-ya!
The booking was easy to manage. The food was good and value for money. The restaurant manager was not too sure about my booking and the discount I intended to use but made up for it with good service!
The food itself was good. The staff however was not paying attention to customers. People had to wait 5 minutes for someone to come to handle their payment. We also got not the meat that we ordered. Especially the lady that was at the desk looked angry all the time. She also ignored all phone calls that she got while we were in the restaurant.
Had lots of beef. Pretty fresh food and love the Kimchi and Sukiyaki soup. The sukiyaki soup can get a little salty after a while, but the Kimchi was the best.
The beef and the pork was quite good but can't say the same for the chicken. Though the selection is a little limited, it is excellent value for money with the OCBC Credit card 1-for-1 promotion.
The service staff was really helpful in getting us a bigger table (there were 8 of us!) and was speedy in bringing us our food orders. Thank you for making our dinner experience enjoyable :)
Variety of food ingredients are limited and quantity of golden mushroom run out around 8pm at Marina Sq. Think that's too early to run out supply for dinner time. However the service staff were good, have to compliment their efficient and polite service.
Nice place for gathering. Food is okay. There was supposed to be a time limit of 100 minutes, but place was not crowded, so the service staff didn't chase us away. Would go again.
Worth the money. Especially for NSF. Can improve on the choices of food and timing allocated for eating as 80 mins is abit too short. Preferably 90 mins
Very good selection of vegetables. Beef and pork were all lean cut. The Tonkotsu soup base was well stocked. My friend loved the shabu shabu here and she's definitely coming back for more.
Staff was friendly especially the lady manager. She even recommended us to take the Creative Privilege Card which we did cos we do frequently eat there. We enjoyed the dinner at Suki-ya restaurant.
Liked the food. But was not too happy with the time restriction on the buffet. The restaurant was not very crowded. So there was no queue to get food and the wait to be served when food was ordered was short.
good staff, fresh pork, chicken not as tasty, nice green tea, but no ice provided, ice desserts but only fruits which is not nice. aircon is cold.
Happy with food and service, extremely satisfied with my experience. Will definitely go back again, and will recommend to my family and friends! Thank you very much
Booking was fuss-free. The restaurant was quite crowded and was under-staffed. But food quality is always good and once you get the attention of a service staff, you will be served promptly.
It has been a pleasant dining experience, though the restaurant is a bit short handed with attending staff especially the cashier is away and a long queue was formed with paying customers.
The food here was okay, the broths were not as flavourful as they could be, but the meats and the vegetables were good. The floor staff in general were nice, but the lady at the till was not exactly friendly.
smiley and warm staffs, had a good experience with my friends. foods are nice, price quite competitive, only my friend really liked that tofu with cheeese inside and tried to get more but no more refill in the tray
Everything was alright. Nothing to scream about. Price was reasonable. The 4 of us ate stacks after stacks of sliced beef and pork. I think they just need to help us remove the empty plates faster. That's about all.
Visited on a Monday night. Severely understaffed, only 2 staff available during the dinner period. The two did not smile even once throughout. Soup ladles were not even provided (isn't this a basic item for hot pots?) at each table. Food variety was average. Overall, would not consider returning to this restaurant.
People were friendly and approachable but need more people to work during peak hours. There's only one person working yesterday, so it took me awhile to get someone to help me top up the soup or attend to me.
Great variety of food, efficient staff, regular topup of soup, well spaced between tables. The only downside is that the staff is constantly busy and not able to fulfill all requests
yes I am satisfied of your service in your restaurant so by next birthday of my friends again we also held in your restaurant thank you so much see you soon
Quality of food generally good. Ambience is good. Me n my partner like it alot. Seems they are a bit understaffed but still they did their best to meet everyone's needs
Has a good time. Staff allowed us to have a seat ahead of our reservation time. Food were also delivered promptly to our table even though the restaurant was packed.
The marina square restaurant was understaffed, the staff were unpleasant and unfriendly, and the buffet items were not refilled regularly (in fact some items were not refilled at all). My party of 4 had to wait for 20 odd minutes even though we'd already made reservations, there was simply no staff manning the counter, and all the staff that we'd approached walked past and ignored us. The branch at plaza singapura is so much better.
Reservation is easy and quick Will definitely use these app Food is OK, service is fine too Will recommend others to try for this price
Need to be cheerful and more friendly for the foreign staff. service without smiles and without greetings. however there was one local auntie perhaps kitchen staff that was very friendly
