Best Japanese Buffets: Unlimited Sashimi & Wagyu Beef To Eat Your Money's Worth
Singaporeans are big fans of all things Japan.
And the best of them all…
And how do you get to have the best of everything?
Well, I’ve always loved Japanese buffets.
Besides having a wide range of sushi, sashimi and handrolls to feast on, it is a cuisine where the price tag of buffets seemed justifiable.
Especially if you’re a sashimi or wagyu beef fan…
Those ala-carte plates of goodness DO NOT come cheap.
When it comes to buffets, the best way to eat your money’s worth is to whack the priciest dishes first.
And what better way than to go for buffets with a free-flow of sashimi or wagyu beef, or even better… both?

How Much To Eat Then Worth It Ah?
Since we’re Seedly and we’re all about making smarter personal finance decisions and maximising our dollar, we might be wondering…
Then I eat how much then considered worth it ah? 🤔
Now, imagine you’re Tim.
Tim loves Japan. And he loves stretching his dollars as well.
Let’s try to estimate the costs of these dishes in a typical restaurant:
|Dish||Typical Ala Carte Price at Restaurants|
|Sashimi (Others: Salmon Belly, Yellowtail etc.)||~$2.50/slice|
|Japanese Wagyu (80g, approx. 5 slices)||~$33.80|
|Australian Wagyu (80g, approx. 5 slices)||~$24.80|
Imagine Tim is at a buffet with both wagyu & sashimi, and he’s there to whack the expensive stuff.
Since the cost per slice of wagyu beef is higher, he might prioritise his beef intake first.
Given the average price of a buffet (with both wagyu & sashimi) is about $80…
|Japanese Wagyu (80g, approx. 5 slices)||2||$67.60|
|Australian Wagyu (80g, approx. 5 slices)||1||$24.80|
|Sashimi (Others: Salmon Belly, Yellowtail etc.)||4||$10|
Given how expensive good quality wagyu beef is, a typical ala carte bill can easily hit $100 with just a few plates of wagyu beef.
So… whack your wagyu beef please.
How about places with just sashimi?
For such buffets, prices average at about $45.
|Sashimi (Others: Salmon Belly, Yellowtail etc.)||15||$37.50|
25 slices of sashimi might make your meal well worth it.
But at the risk of getting mercury poisoning…
We suggest mixing it up with some good handrolls, sushi and cooked dishes to make your money’s worth.
I’ve personally been to Gyu-Kaku and daaaamn, the quality was *chef’s kiss*.
Gyu-Kaku states that they take pride in bringing their customers the authentic ‘yakiniku’ experience, and they are not kidding about it.
Its quality and variety do justify its price tag, and you can spam your favourite wagyu cuts during the 90-minute session as well.
Their prices start at $58.80 for a weekday standard buffet, and the fancy ones can go for either the Australian or Japanese-themed ones.
