Tendon Ginza Itsuki
This is still one of our favourite spots to get our tendon fix. Priced from S$12.90, there is a decent portion of an assortment of tempura, chawanmushi and miso soup. The space is not that big, and you could also epect a long queue at almost any time of the day. The only downside is that you will leave the restaurant with the smell of grease. [Read more here…]

Ikoi Japanese Restaurant
Mention value for money Japanese buffet and Ikoi is one of the first to cross my mind. Located in Hotel Miramar, this popular and cosy Japanese restaurant has been around for many years where you need to reserve well in advance. Priced at S$39++ for its dinner buffet, there is a decent variety of sashimi, sushi, handrolls, grilled dishes, fried dishes and noodles.
