 •  Feb 17, 2017


[Updated: 25 May 2021] Halal sushi in Singapore can be difficult to find - many of us have faced that familiar struggle of travelling all the way from the West to the East just to get our fix of halal nigiri or sushi rolls. 😅 If you're craving some sashimi or sushi though, you won't have to look any further than this guide to tell you where to order takeaway or delivery from! We've listed 7 places where you can get the best halal sushi in Singapore - this is the ultimate guide for all you sushi fans out there! Note: Hararu Izakaya, Shin Tokyo, and Santaro by Gion have been removed from this list as they have permanently closed or are no longer halal-certified.
1. Isuramuya Restaurant & Marketplace
West-siders no longer have to travel all the way to Tampines or Bedok to get their fix of halal sushi. Isuramuya opened in 2016 at JCube in Jurong East and uses only ingredients flown fresh from Japan! With such a wide menu, here's where you can savour the true taste of Japanese cuisine. I mean, look at that salmon! 😍 If you're looking to treat yourself, make sure to have a bite of their  otoro (fatty tuna belly) - it'll melt in your mouth! Their menu also includes temaki (hand rolls), sashimi, noodles, and rice bowls so you can sit back and enjoy a Japanese feast. If you're inspired by the sushi served and want to try making your own, you can hop over to the marketplace located on its premises. Isuramuya is the first Japanese restaurant in Singapore with an on-premise marketplace selling both fresh fish and halal-certified soba noodles, seaweed toppings and more! 😮 From savoury dishes to sweet desserts, you can find everything you need to recreate your trip to Tokyo. Good news is that they are delivering and also serving takeaway during this period! Halal status: Halal-certified Price: From S$2.20 (Sushi) and S$7 (Sashimi) Opening hours: Open daily; 11.30AM-9:30PM Address: 2 Jurong East Central 1, JCube #04-19, Singapore 609731 Website | Facebook | Instagram
2. Hei Sushi
Must-try dishes at Hei Sushi include the Aburi sushi and the Shake Tobimayo - seared salmon topped with tobimayo sauce (flying fish roe sauce & mayonnaise). The salmon was seared to the right degree and the sauce complemented the dish perfectly. Yummy! You can't miss Hei Sushi’s speciality makimono either. With artistic creations such as the Spider Maki (soft shell crab and lettuce wrapped in Oba (perilla) leaf) and Sunshine Maki (breaded prawn sushi layered with mango), you’ll definitely be back for more! Their delivery and takeaway menu is offering promotions such as a 4 Teishoku deal, a Meal For Two which includes 2 Chawanmushi and 2 coke, and a sushi platter deal with 2 free sides!

3. Maki-San
'Maki'-your-own-sushi right here at Maki-San! 😛 This is my personal go-to sushi place considering how fussy I am about my food, so much so that I want it personalized right down to every detail. 😂 A huge plus point is that the sushi here is affordable and there are so many ingredients to choose from to suit every appetite! They even have over 25 ingredients including more plant-based and meat-free options (like Impossible Meat) for even more variety.  Start by choosing which wrap you'd like your maki in - traditional nori (seaweed), crepe (egg wrap) or healthy soy wrap. You can also choose brown rice instead of Japanese white rice, if you prefer the healthier option. Then, take your pick of ingredients, sprinkles and sauces to complete your maki! I really was not kidding when I said your maki is personalized right down to the very detail. 😌 P.S. If you'd like to take your maki a notch higher, opt to fry your sushi at a small additional price! But you can only opt for this if you chose the traditional nori wrap. Halal status: Maki-San outlets are Halal-certified by MUIS Price: From S$7.90 (Little San) and S$9.90 (Mega San) Outlet details: Click here for their outlets across Singapore Delivery via: Online, GrabFood, foodpanda, Deliveroo Website | Facebook | Instagram
4. The Ramen Stall
Offering authentic Japanese food altered to suit the local palate, The Ramen Stall is a halal Japanese restaurant tucked away in North Bridge Road. The restaurant's name is enough to give away it's speciality dish but that's not all it's known for! There's also an amazing range of sushi for you to choose from at this restaurant to complement your steaming-hot bowls of noodles. 😄  Apart from commonly found sushi such as the California Roll, indulge yourselves in torched salmon sushi, fresh salmon sashimi, torched beef sushi, and more! 😋 Eat to your heart's content here, as they are offering free islandwide delivery with a minimum spend of $50!

This is one of the only halal sushi stores in Singapore which does not actually have a physical store.
