This tiny restaurant keeps diners happy with an extensive selection of fresh Japanese cuisine, available from an a la carte buffet menu. The sashimi is a big draw and there are plenty of standards such as tempura and yakitori to keep the gastric juices flowing.

Worth your money for excellent quality

Ignore the other reviews about slow service.

Apparently Singaporeans don't appreciate waiting for good food. They don't seem to understand well that at Ikoi, you get your money's worth of quality of food. They take a while to prepare it so that it reaches your table HOT and FRESHLY COOKED. 

I cannot emphasize enough about how i always bring friends here to eat, especially if they want good sashimi for a worthy price. Everything here is so good. The food is amazing, and the staff are all very polite (even the new trainees)! They will do their best to explain certain things to you if you don't know what it is when you're ordering. 

Either way, I always enjoy myself here and I eat to my fullest. It's all about knowing how to work around ala-carte bufets (not just sit there and complain about slow service). After all, if you don't know how to wait for good things in life, don't wait.

A good place to go if you can eat lots of sashimi, otherwise its not worth the money.

The other food was mostly too salty, tempura was nothing remarkable and the soba and udon noodles were overcooked. 

Also didn't like the fact that drinks and dessert were chargeable. Isn't the cost of an "ala carte buffet" supposed to include all items on the menu?

I love the food served. The waiting time is quite long for the second round of food. But the sashimi is fresh and good. Love the tempura too! 
Overall is good. No complaints except for the waiting.
We also have to make reservation in advance.
