Teppei Omakase Singapore's entrance

Teppei Omakase Singapore review

Teppei Omakase is one of the most popular Omakase establishments in Singapore and for good reason! It is a cosy 22-seater located at the heart of our CBD (Central Business District) area.

At 129 SGD per person, it is one of the more affordable Omakases in town. Moreover, its popular theatrics makes this unique dining experience one not to be missed. Snagging a seat at this restaurant is incredibly difficult and requires very fast fingers.

Ever since our first visit in 2018, this has quickly become one of my family’s favourite Japanese restaurants in Singapore. This time around, we’re back again to celebrate my father’s birthday.

The menu

Teppei has no fixed menu for its Omakase and it changes every season. For the latest offerings, be sure to check out its hidden webpage or Facebook page.

Final thoughts

If you’ve been counting, we’ve had a crazy 19 dishes in a short span of 3 hours. Every dish is so unique and varied that it breaks the boundaries of traditional Japanese cuisine. We can clearly see the thought and creativity that went into every dish.

On top of the taste of the food, we enjoyed the theatrics put up by the staff of the restaurant. They were very passionate about making sure we are entertained.

We’d recommend Teppei Omakase if you’re looking for something more unique and different from traditional Omakase. If you’re looking for something more traditional, then we’ll recommend Miraku over Teppei as we felt the food were fresher and of higher quality.
