Most speak of love, but only one man bestowed the most enchanting of odes to his wife.

It all started in 1997 in Singapore, when having fine Japanese cuisine and fresh sushi meant spending top dollars. He noticed that his wife, an avid fan of Japanese food, was always dining consciously at such restaurants for fear of incurring an exorbitant bill.

And so the ode began. Motivated to make his wife’s sushi dining experience unique, fulfilling and carefree, he founded Sakae Sushi, a trendy restaurant haven where she, along with every Japanese food enthusiast, could enjoy the freshest, inexpensive Japanese savouries without a worry about cost. Like his love for his wife, nothing about Sakae Sushi is ordinary. From the sushi conveyor belt, its consistently-delicious delectables on the colourful plates, attractive presentation and portions, Sakae Sushi appeals to the budget-conscious, the fresh-food follower, and the stylish sushi connoisseur. Even today’s iGeneration find it hard to resist as every Sakae Sushi is fitted with emergent technologies like our Interactive Menu.

Today, Sakae Sushi has grown into a global chain of more than 200 outlets internationally, serving over 200 varieties of delectables of sushi, sashimi and many others. Its value for money prices, ever-evolving menu, endearing staff and ambiance ensure that this fairytale dining experience will never be short of fans’ accolades.
Our Philosophy

A Commitment to People

At Sakae, we recognize that People are our most critical assets. We value the contributions of our employees, and work tirelessly to ensure that our company grows hand in hand with the professional development and personal lives of our employees.

A Commitment to Community

Sakae is committed to the betterment of the communities in which we live and work. Other than corporate charity events and contributions, we encourage active volunteerism amongst our employees by offering time off to fulfill these commitments.

A Commitment to Quality

We serve only what we eat. Sakae is committed to the continuous pursuit of food quality excellence, made possible only through careful food sourcing, stringent food safety standards and our Chefs’ meticulous skills. In line with that, our food is sent for laboratory checks regularly and we practise farm-to-table approach to ensure food safety and quality.  


Located at 28 Tai Seng Street, our Headquarters - Sakae Building houses our Central Kitchen, culinary training facility, automated self-retrieval system for freezers storage of frozen food, sake and many other amenities.

To better support and facilitate our global operations, our central kitchen and catering arm, Nouvelle Events as well as our delivery call-centre has been fully integrated. As part of our strong commitment to safeguard our environment, we are constantly exploring various Go Green facilities that will enhance our operations at our Sakae Building. By building on past years’ initiatives and efforts, we are continually looking at enhanced ways to improve our Go Green initiatives. 

Our Central Kitchen is outfitted with state-of-the-art high technology equipment and appliances which produce less ambient heat and very low carbon emissions, while ensuring lower energy consumption levels. Our previously installed solar panel project, with 1400 solar panels for a 270 kilowatt-peak solar energy system, has been optimised and fully integrated. On an average day with low cloud cover, the solar panels are able to generate and retain 20% to 30% of our building’s energy consumption, which is in the long run a very substantial figure.

Lighting used in our Sakae Building was installed with motion-sensor devices to help cut down electricity usage, and we have also adopted the use of LED lighting in the stores for power saving and environment friendly purposes.

On top of that, we have a rainwater irrigation system installed at the water fountain feature in front of our Sakae Building for landscaping purposes. Our Go Green efforts will not stop here, and we will continue to explore and reinforce various ways to contribute to the sustainability of our community and environment.

Sakae building is also a mixed development offering eateries and other amenities. Besides offering delectable halal Japanese cuisine at our Hei Sushi restaurant located at ground floor of our building, to busy office workers, we offer affordable dining at a food court located within our building. 

We also offer dedicated spaces for Corporate bookings, Birthday parties, Sushi making workshops and Sakae Testing sessions. Interested parties may email us at or call us 6438 6629 for more information.
