How to save money when eating at buffets

Buffets, especially Japanese ones, might be on a slightly pricier side for the average Singaporean. Save more money by not only using the best dining credit cards, but also taking advantage of lunch deals and birthday promotions.

One of the oldest Japanese a la carte buffets in Singapore, Shin Minori is located at UE Square and Katong Square. Their buffet menu features over 160 dishes that include sashimi, sushi of all types, teppanyaki, yakimono, tempura, ramen and more.

With so many food options, this is definitely the place to go if you have picky eaters in your group or can’t quite decide where to bring the family.

Shin Minori is most value-for-money during your birthday month, as you can get a free lunch buffet when you dine on Mondays to Fridays with a minimum of one paying adult.

That’s as good as a 1-for-1 buffet! But if you can’t make time for this promotion, there’s another birthday deal that’s valid during dinner on Mondays to Thursdays at Katong Square — birthday peeps will receive a free bottle of wine and sushi cake with a minimum of two paying adults.
