Pretty disappointed that we couldn't sit by the sushi train in spite of there being tables around - the waiter clearly doesn't believe in first come first serve. It took over 20 mins to get our edamame beans and over 45 minutes to get simple sushi plates. While the food was good, the wait time and being told where to... More

Had Ichiban Boshi for lunch at Suntec for a business lunch. Ordered Ten Don, Wagyu Steak and plenty of sushi. Food was fresh and tasty. Service was a little slow. Price is reasonable. Definitely coming back for more.

This brand name is popular because of the affordable prices and variety offered. The sushi and sashimi are just average compared to sushi tei's. The bento and combo sets are what is unique and value for money. Though sometimes the food may not be well done and taste consistently.

I've been here a few times for lunch and have always been satisfied with the quality of the food. Their sushi is particularly tasty.

service was great as usual, although asking for the bill took a little longer than usual. Food was yummy and affordable. They could have more drinks and dessert choices in the menu though....

This place has amazing friendly service and the price you pay is certainly value for money for the quality of shashimi you are getting.

At the Marina Bay Link site, there is a great selection and particularly clever offering of a special from 3:30-5:30pm for S$5.90 which provides delicious miso soup, chawamushi egg custard, pickles and then either tempura tendon, Kara-age, pork or beef selection. It got us hooked. (Trip Advisor -- Please add the Marina Bay Link site!)

We ate at Changi business park, tho it was near closing time patrons are made comfortable to enjoy their order. Bento sets with the complete works are oiichi fresh and reasonably priced. You can also order from the sushi belt of different prices. Ocha are refillable.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
