    Waka Japanese RestaurantPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Located inside Bayview Hotel, this Japanese eatery provides Japanese buffet with a wide variety and assortment of sushi, raw seafood and more. The great variation of choices is every Japanese food-lover's absolute heaven. Heck, the constant restocking and free-flow supply of fresh sashimi is practically a 'Heaven of Sashimi'. If seafood's your thing, then make sure you check out the delish, grilled scallops!

    Aim for the raw oysters. They get sold out pretty fast.

    Sushi ZentoNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    As noodle lovers, you'd be surprised at the menu selections here. Despite the 'sushi' term placement in its name, Sushi Zento is actually a better fit for crafty handmade udon, ramen and savory pork belly and broths. The Kyu N Kim Ramen is a superb delight created with a mash-up of two different soups in one same bowl.
    Tips

    You can opt to sit indoors and watch the chef personally slicing sashimi on the sushi counter.

    Things to expect

    Noodle heaven.

    Best with

    Some noodles should have some sides! Try the Sashimi To Shake Teriyaki Set, suitable for 2 pax.
