Even with the current ban on dining out, enjoying restaurant-standard food at home is still just a delivery away. If you’ve been apprehensive about ordering in, no thanks to sky-high delivery rates, we’ve curated a list of Japanese food delivery places with delivery fees of $10 and less, so that you will be able to feast on your favourite Japanese food with less of a pinch.
1. Salmon Samurai

Hip, healthy, and customisable, Salmon Samurai offers salmon in more ways than one. Whether you’re after Mala Mentai Maki ($11.90), which features seared salmon in a maki roll, slathered with mala mentai sauce, Salmon Poke bowl (from $10.90), or a Salmon Sashimi bowl (from $10.90), the bases are all covered here. Every bowl is fully customisable, allowing you to choose from yuzu ume rice, buckwheat soba, udon, or their house special Chilled Citrus Ramen, and your salmon of choice. You’re also given the option to make it a salad bowl, if you’re on a no-carb roll.
Islandwide delivery is available at $9 here, although it’s free when you spend above $50.
2. SENS Sushi & Grill

SENS Sushi & Grill is a lesser-known gem, housed in Basement One of the Raffles Medical building in Holland Village. Get both sashimi and tempura in the Sashimi Tempura Set ($34.27), or a Salmon Soft Shell Crab Set ($26.22), both of which are great if you can’t decide which you’re craving. On the side, the Ikura Chawanmushi ($9.20) makes for a zhnged-up version of the Japanese steamed eggs, topped generously with the roe.
There’s a minimum order of $60 for delivery, which is charged at a flat rate of $5. What’s more, add on the 3-kind ($33.24) or 5-kind Sashimi Moriawase ($52.67) at 50% off when you check out your delivery order with more than $60. Otherwise, enter the code ‘SENS20‘ for 20% off all takeaway orders.
3. PIPES By Hattendo

If you once queued up for their cream buns, you’ll recognise PIPES By Hattendo, their new-ish cafe concept, which serves a wide range of Japanese food delivery other than just the cream buns. A signature on the menu here is the Friends With Benefits Grain Bowl ($21.90), which is topped with char-grilled A4 wagyu, foie gras, onsen egg, shimeji mushrooms, and pickled cucumber. Another item that’s well worth it is Angels Only ($14)─their version of mentaiko pasta, garnished with sakura ebi, and ikura.
You can also get comforting Japanese home-style dishes, prepared with no preservatives. The items on this menu have been curated by a Japanese-certified nutritionist, and come with nutritional information to guide your ordering. If you’re interested, they include a Tori Tsukune Low-Carb Set ($15). Otherwise, you can simply go with dishes such as Tonjiri ($8), a pork and vegetable soup, or Toriniku Tomato Nikomi ($10), a tomato-based chicken stew.
Use the code ‘STAYHOME20‘ at checkout to get 20% off your order at PIPES By Hattendo, valid from now till 31 May 2021. Delivery is chargeable at $10, with a minimum order of $50, but free with $100 spent.

We loved Flipper’s pancakes when they first launched in Ngee Ann City last year, and were besotted with their limited edition strawberry pancakes when Awayuki strawberries came into season. This month, their seasonal fruit item is the Andes melon, and you’ll be able to enjoy it at home during this P2HA season with their newly launched delivery service.
Besides Kiseki Pancake Andes Melon ($24.80), there’s a new Kiseki Pancake Hazelnut Chocolate ($21.80), along with the usual Kiseki Pancake Plain ($16.80), and the selection of savoury pancakes ($22.80).

12. Reiwa Soba
Reiwa Soba is run by a Japanese couple, who make their own soba from scratch in their hawker stall.

The Mango Salad Soba ($11.50) sees the homemade noodles dressed with green mango salad, while Reiwa Pork Soba ($13.50) comes topped with Spanish white pork, with a house-made chilli oil dipping sauce that’s made with a base of chicken and fish broth.

13. nozomi by YOSHI
Image credit: @fatbandits
nozomi by YOSHI is a product of last year’s COVID-19 Circuit Breaker, when its parent restaurant, YOSHI, was forced to adapt their kaiseki menu to a takeaway- and delivery-friendly menu. It eventually gave rise to two casual Japanese restaurants at Millennia Walk, and Forum The Shopping Mall.
They’re now back to running deliveries, featuring a range of grub that varies from comforting Sakura Tai Donabe ($38), to an indulgent Black Truffle Sakura Ebi and Ikura Claypot Rice ($58), both of which feed two generously.
They serve red vinegar sushi rice here, and you can enjoy it in the Salmon Trio And Ikura Don ($24) or a Hotate, Amaebi, Zuwaigani Don ($32), that’s got scallops, sweet shrimp, and snow crab.
Delivery fees, which start from below $10, vary according to delivery location. Delivery is free with orders above $100.
Only the best, wild-caught toro saba from the North Pacific Coast of Japan is served at SABAR, a combination of the words saba, and bar. Saba lovers need look here, because the entire menu celebrates this mackerel. The Grilled Saba Sushi ($30) features grilled fish and rice, sandwiching a slice of ginger within, while Matsumae Toro Saba Sushi ($30) showcases Edomae-style sushi, where the fish is marinated and cured with kombu. If you prefer the whole fish, you can get it with the Grilled Super Mega Toro-Saba ($58), which is said to have no fishy taste, and will spoil you for all other saba.
Delivery is charged at $8 with a minimum order of $38, or free with orders above $78. SABAR does not deliver on public holidays, and eve of public holidays.
15. Sandaime Bunji
Image credit: @sandaime_bunji
You’ll definitely have walked past Sandaime Bunji at Millennia Walk, which used to be packed with Japanese businessmen after work hours. Those days are a thing of the past, for now, and Sandaime Bunji has taken their offerings online. They specialise in serving oden, and beef tongue, although their roast beef bowls have made quite a name for themselves too.
Try their speciality with the 3 Kind Gyutan Mix Bento ($32.90). Here, aged beef tongue is prepared three ways: miso, ginger, and shio, with some dashimaki tamago, salad, and rice. If it’s the beef bowls you’re after, it comes in two sizes: Au Wagyu Roast Beef Don in S Size ($13.90), and L Size ($22.50). The former has 100g of roast beef, while the latter has 200g.
There’s a minimum order of $50 for delivery, which costs $10. Currently, they’re running a promotion where you’ll get $3 off the delivery rate when you spend $48, which makes delivery just $7.

For a change from the regular BBQ wings from the hawker centres, get the Tebasaki Platter (from $18.20).

We reviewed Hideki, a Japanese cai png stall, when they first started out at Yishun Park Hawker Centre. They’ve now expanded to the CBD, with an operation running out of the Shenton Food Hall. We liked their fully customisable bowls, which you start building with a base ($1), followed by a protein (from $3), sauce, and side (from $1). Choose from sushi rice, soba, or salad; chicken, pork, unagi, beef, or salmon; teriyaki, truffle mayo, or nacho cheese sauces, and a whole range of sides.
For the indecisive, there are also preset options such as the Aburi Pork Belly Don ($7), and Triple Threat ($14), featuring aburi salmon, chicken, and pork belly.

Once upon a long time ago, Man Man Unagi attracted queues that stretched more than 50 people long. Those days are over, because Man Man is now available for islandwide delivery!
Look forward to their speciality Hitsumabushi (from $34), which allows you to enjoy their fresh unagi three ways: alone, with condiments, and third with the broth. But if you’re not after all those frills, you can go for the Kabayaki Bento ($31.30), which has a large serving of unagi, with tamago, spinach, pickles, and rice. If you’re even more basic than that, the Unagi Don ($32.90) is unagi, rice, and pickles.
Delivery is fixed at $8, although there is a minimum order of $80 to hit.
19. Sun With Moon
Sun With Moon is known for their kamaneshi, or kettle rice, sets, that arrive at your table in an iron pot. You can now enjoy them at home, minus the pot, between 12pm and 2:30pm every day.

All the kamaneshi lunch sets come with assorted tempura on the side, and miso soup.
For a limited time, Sun With Moon will also have a Miyazaki wagyu special, where the prized beef features in the Miyazaki Wagyu Karubi Yaki & Kimchi Don ($27.80), and Miyazaki Wagyu Karubi Nigiri Sushi ($8.80). This menu will run till 7 June 2021.

RAPPU’s handrolls blew us away when we first sampled them last year. Instead of serving up a $36 handroll course, RAPPU has pivoted to present the rolls as chirashi boxes, with nori sheets on the side for you to DIY the handrolls at home, should you choose. The Rappu 6 ($43) is their less premium option, comprising hotate, kanpachi, salmon, toro, crab, and engawa.
