Sakura International Buffet Restaurant:
A Great-value Buffet!
If you like good-value buffets,
you'll like Sakura International Buffet Restaurant!
My good friend, Kevin, highly recommended the Sakura International Buffet Restaurant to me. So on a Friday evening, we visited the branch at Yio Chu Kang Stadium. We enjoyed one of the best buffets I've encountered in Singapore. And we weren't alone - the restaurant was packed to overflowing!
Sakura, in my opinion, has succeeded on a very simple formula: provide great value for money. This is how they do it:
1. use ingredients that are fresh and of good quality,
2. provide a great variety of dishes, and
3. offer the whole thing as a buffet at an unbeatable price.
If you are looking for a 'cheap and good buffet in Singapore', Sakura International Buffet Restaurant is as good as it can get. Their prices are hard to beat - even the most expensive meal over the weekend is under S$30 per pax, with all taxes included.

If you have a huge appetite, Sakura is your food paradise. But if, like me, you have a limited stomach, you'll need to prioritise. Here's my list of must-try dishes:
- Grilled selections:
barbecued baby squid, salmon, rib-eye steak, lamp chops.
- Baked oysters and mussels

- Sushi and sashimi

- Shark's fin soup
- Dessert: black sasame mochi (Japanese pastry)
Note also that Sakura's beverages are all free-flow: soft drinks, coffee, tea and ice cream. Their spread of desserts is limited but you'll find their Japanese pastries hard to resist. Yes, it's kimochi!
Is there a downside to Sakura International Buffet Restaurant? Well, compared to the more sophisticated hotel restaurants, Sakura is quite noisy. But heck, you can't win them all!
