Given that ordering these premium meats a la carte can get really pricey, you’ll probably be able to get more bang for your buck at these buffets with prices starting from S$38.90++ (especially if you’re a big meat lover, like me).
Ready for a feast? Here are 8 wagyu buffets in Singapore to check out the next time those premium cravings arise.
1. Suki-ya Kin
Most would be familiar with the name Suki-Ya, known for its pocket-friendly shabu-shabu and sukiyaki buffets (starting from S$22.90). What some might not know, however, is that nestled among the rows of restaurants at Vivocity is the lesser-known Suki-Ya Kin — the only outlet that offers higher-grade options.
With six soup bases to choose from, you can enjoy premium Australian wagyu alongside the standard selection of meats you’d expect from other outlets. While there is only one cut for lunch and two different cuts for dinner, this is a great option for those who’d like to feast on wagyu for a more affordable rate.
The lunch buffet starts at S$38.90++ per pax while dinner costs S$48.90++ (with a surcharge of S$3++ from Fridays to Sundays, eve of PH and PH). Do note that there is a dine-in time limit of 80 minutes.
2. Wagyu More
Hailing from Hong Kong, Wagyu More offers another shabu-shabu buffet option you can consider if that’s how you prefer your beef. The restaurant boasts a variety of 10 soup bases like collagen chicken, mala and more (you’ll need to top up S$3++ for some).
From S$49.80++, you can enjoy unlimited Australian wagyu beef alongside offerings from their standard buffet items including seafood dishes like fish and prawns. If you’re feeling a little more bougie, you can also opt for the unlimited Japanese A5 wagyu beef buffet that starts from S$148.80++ (which also includes the standard buffet menu). For both options, the dine-in time limit is set at 90 minutes.
3. Rocku Yakiniku
An alternative for those craving grilled meats, Rocku Yakiniku (also in Bugis) is a casual yakiniku joint that offers one of the most affordable all-you-can-eat wagyu buffets.
For a dine-in time of 100 minutes, lunch is priced S$49.90++ while dinner is slightly pricier at S$59.90++ (and a surcharge of S$3++ from Fridays to Sundays, eve of PH and PH). Given the insanely low price point for a wagyu beef buffet, the caveat is that you’ll get free-flow of two different Australian wagyu cuts and only one order per table of the more premium Japanese meats. It is still a pretty good deal overall!
4. Yakiniku Ohji
Westies, this one’s for you! Located at 321 Clementi, Yakiniku Ohji serves free-flow A4 wagyu along with a smorgasbord of other side dishes such as salmon sashimi and takoyaki.
Choose from six different cuts of A4 wagyu beef like sirloin, kalbi (short-rib), and more at buffet prices starting from S$54.80++. Feasting on unlimited slices of marbled meats at this price point for 90 minutes is definitely a steal. However, do also note that there is an additional S$2.50 charcoal charge per person.
If authenticity is your top priority, check out any one of Gyu-Kaku’s ten outlets across Singapore. Originating from Japan, the restaurant chain is known for its quality wagyu buffets, so you know you’re really getting your money’s worth.
Order the Australian wagyu buffet at S$69.80++, which offers four different cuts like karubi and brisket for you to try, along with various other meats and side dishes. Alternatively, you can top up S$20 for the famed Japanese wagyu beef with five other choices like steak, tomosankaku, and chuck cuts. Both buffets have a dine-in time limit of 90 minutes, so be sure to eat to your heart’s content while you can!
6. Syohachi Yakiniku
For those who want to try a little bit of everything, A5 wagyu speciality restaurant Syohachi Yakiniku is the place for you.
Unlike most other buffets, different well-marbled cuts of wagyu are served in curated platters (instead of individual a la carte portions) best enjoyed in a larger group.
With the longest dine-in time limit of two hours, you’ll definitely have more than enough time to savour the different menu offerings. Those who order the buffet from 5-7pm on weekdays can enjoy the early bird pricing of S$70++. Otherwise, the usual dinner prices start at S$80++ (with a surcharge of S$8++ on Fridays to Saturdays and eve of PH).
7. Japanese Yakiniku Heijoen
If you’re looking for more options for A5 wagyu beef, Heijoen at 100am offers just that. Their wagyu is directly imported from Japan, so this is yet another authentic buffet experience you can consider.
From 6pm onwards, go for their premium buffet option at S$90++ and feast on an array of meat items (both wagyu and standard meats), seafood and other sides for 90 minutes. You can also look forward to other menu offerings such as black pork, prawns, and even less common dishes like intestine and stomach!
8. Hitoyoshi Yakiniku
Tucked away in The Rail Mall, Hitoyoshi Yakiniku’s A5 Miyazaki wagyu buffet offers six different A5 cuts — think VIP karubi, garlic butter steak and premium steak. Apart from the wagyu beef, you’ll also get to feast on US black angus beef and iberico pork.
Both lunch and dinner buffets are priced at S$98.80++ per pax, with a dine-in time limited to 90 minutes. It might be the priciest on this list, but given the quality of the meat, you’re definitely in for a special treat!
With no shortage of options, which of these wagyu buffets will you be heading down to next?
