Todai Singapore open its doors on 18th February 2011 at #B2-01 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.


It is located right at the end of The Shoppes (nearer to the Marina Bay Financial Center). It occupies quite a huge space at The Shoppes, it’s floor area is about 1,300m2. It has more than 400 seats including 4 private rooms. The restaurants houses more than 100 employees with about 50 of them being chefs.

Todai is a US-Korean international seafood and sushi buffet restaurant and it was first opened in Santa Monica in 1985. Their international cuisines includes, Chinese, Japanese, Korea, Singaporea, Western, Italian, Brazilian Churrasco and Vietnamese.

Todai Singapore

I think Todai is similar to Pariss Buffet Restaurant, lots of variety but in terms of quality of food, Todai is so much better. That is because currently most of the chefs are from Korea.

Todai Restaurant Layout

There are about 20 zones as seen in the picture above, out of which are 8 main sections, Salads & Cold Cuts, Sushi Sashimi, Noddles, Italian Pizza & Pasta, Meat & Seafood, Brazilian Churassco, Desserts.



2 of the more popular sections are the seafood and churassco. You can only take 2 oysters from the seafood section at a time, but you can take as many times as you want. The grilled pineapple and sirloin steak from the churassco is awesome!

They also have a fish cutting ceremony once every week (during one of the weekday) where they brought in the freshly flown fish and slice it up on the spot for sashimi.

If you are looking for a private company dinner, they also have 4 private rooms for you with no additional surcharge but of course subject to availability.

Last but not least, the reason why Todai hold a blogger event because they want us to help spread the word to emphasis that the food they bring in are not from Japan and does not contain any radioactive materials.

I have no idea why people in Singapore are so concern about food from Japan containing radioactive materials. My family is in the food business and I can say that Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) is very anal (in a good way) when it comes to food safety. So have some faith with the food in Singapore!

My personal opinion of Todai is food is good, lots of variety, ingredients are fresh and food are freshly prepared (they do not use MSG). Large sitting area which is good for both personal and corporate events and most importantly prices are reasonable.
