“Featuring this hidden gem at Far East Plaza! Located at a random corner of the dodgy shopping mall, the restaurant serves generous serving of delicious chirashi don ($26). The fish slices are so thick, at least twice the thickness of the typical sashimi. And they taste so fresh! The chirashi don had a great variety of fishes and scallops, and it leaves you feeling so satisfied. Kudos to the Chef!”

Customers of Sun With Moon are very satisfied with the overall menu concepts, variation of foods, and the relaxed ambience. Chris Wong shared his thoughts on Google Reviews:
“A delightful place to have dinner. The quality is definitely higher than most of the Japanese chain restaurants but certainly worth the price. Had their highly recommended rice bowl. It was delicious with some of the charred rice at the bottom and side of the metal bowl. The unagi and hotate was well seasoned and flavourful. The marinated grill squid was tender and not too dry like in many other places. A BIG TIP – if your bill adds up to above SGD200, you should definitely join as a member costing $20. The 10% off as a member is immediately applied and if it’s your birthday month, you get 20% discount. You will get a SGD20 return voucher and also points are already accumulated for redemption later on.”

“Our family came by here on our weekly family dinner out and were not disappointed at all. The food is top notch and the service is great too! The owner was very honest and sincere about his menu, steering us from a certain menu item when he felt that the current ingredient used in it did not meet his standards. Had the gyu Don and it was perfectly executed. All in all, a great experience and would recommend it to others.”

A reviewer from Google Reviews wrote:
“Beautifully prepared dish and fresh ingredients served in a classic Japanese countertop dining.the rice dishes are flavourful with the right mix of rice and sashimi. Though the place can be quite squeezy, the food and service pretty much makes up for it. There’s salad and miso served before the dish – a welcomed plus. The place is very packed during lunch but not so much for dinner.”

“This is a truly special sushi place in Singapore. 4 Japanese sushi chefs working at the same time in 1 sushi counter. Food was amazing and the presentation truly a feast for the eyes not to mention the palate! Price is what you would expect for such quality. Other places tend to be over rated and expensive but I think for me this one is worth it. Will definitely come back!”

They are known for their premium sushi and grand presentation. The aesthetics of both the food and setting here will let you experience a memorable food venture.

- Authentic seafood dishes
- Open kitchen view
Satisfied customers praised Hashida for their skilled and friendly staff, who have impressed them with knowledge and good conversations. Jia Yi Tong gave this feedback on Google Reviews:
“Easily my favourite place for quality sushi in Singapore. Hashida serves edo-mae style sushi, and the chefs are thoroughly innovative. Each piece is served with a different texture and flavour, sometimes fresh, sometimes aged, sometimes grilled with charcoal to have a beautiful smokiness, sometimes topped with shiso leaf or yuzu skin for some extra freshness. It’s a true delight. The new space at Mohammed Sultan Road might be a tad bit inconvenient, and not access friendly, but if you can it’s worth a visit. Lunch sets are great value.”
With that, we conclude our list of the best sushi restaurants in Singapore at the moment. All of these spots offer fresh, expertly made sushi that’s sure to satisfy your cravings, so don’t hesitate to try them when you start hankering for some maki or even some oshizushi.
