Helmed by Chef Hirai, the 4-year old sushi restaurant is located at the hip Robertson Quay.

With a trendy bar which closes at 3am, seven days a week, TEN Sushi is an ideal venue to unwind and relish fresh sushi and signature creations.
The Omasake Sushi comprising of 12-piece roll sushi is my favourite item on the menu. Priced at S$49++, you can look forward to fresh Maguro (tuna), Otoro (tuna belly), Uni (sea urchin), Kanpachi (amberjack), Mizu Tako (octopus), Aji (Japanese horse mackerel) and more. 12-piece and 24-piece Sushi Boxes (12-piece box at S$49++, 24-piece box at S$98++) are also available upon request.
Another signature dish which I love is the A4 Wagyu Aburi Sushi (S$18++ for 2 pieces and S$44++ for 5 pieces) consisting of Japanese high quality seared A4 wagyu sushi with teriyaki sauce and topped with spring onion. It has a succulent texture and a melt-in-your-mouth consistency.
At a good Sushi joint, one can always expect fresh sashimi. TEN Sushi & Bar's TEN Assorted Sashimi Deluxe priced at S$58 offers a plethora of of Sashimi including Maguro (tuna), Hamachi (amberjack), Otoro (tuna belly), Hotate (scallop), Uni (sea urchin) and more. The Hotate won my heart with its sweet taste and firm texture while the Uni impressed me with its smooth, creamy and briny flavours.
The Japanese Sakoshi Bay Oysters (S$28++ for 6 pieces, S$49++ for 12 pieces) topped with ikura and ebiko are not to be missed by oyster aficionados. Fresh, plump and luscious, they melt readily in one's mouth.
The Aburi Salmon Avocado Roll (S$20 for 8 pieces) is a beautifully assembled creation with fresh avocado, aburi salmon slices topped with mayo, tobiko and onion and drizzled with teriyaki sauce. The wondrous combination of different textures and flavours is intriguing to the senses and gratifying to the palate.
The Unagi Eel Roll (S$18 for 4 pieces and S$32 for 8 pieces) is equally alluring with its light, delicate texture and sweet taste, further enhanced by the chef artfully brushing teriyaki sauce on the roll.
