If you’re on a tight budget and have a big group of friends that can’t decide what to eat, try dragging them to this wallet-friendly restaurant. The food served here is not your fancy Italian fare, but if you are looking to fill your stomach fast, the sheer choice of dishes make this casual eatery a winner.

At the Liang Court branch, I ordered the oven-grilled escargots ($5.90), a decent appetiser if you want to try the usually atas dish minus the dent in your wallet. But if you yearn for something more satisfying, my personal go-tos are the baked rice dishes. From Bacon Mushroom Risotto ($5.90) to Chicken Gratin ($4.90), these carbo-loaded classics are comfort food at its simplest.

The dishes taste pretty mediocre on average, but at such low prices, it’s easy to keep my inner Michelin Star critic quiet. Add to that the free-flow drink bar (Pepsi, lemon tea, tea, coffee and so on) and I’m sorry to say that I’ve turned over to the dark side and might revisit one of Saizeriya’s many outlets again.

I used to live in Tokyo a few years back, and in the station closest to my place was a Sayzeria. The food is whatever - totally commercial - but they had really cheap wine. So I used to order something, anything - probably pizza - and just sit there and drink lots of wine. This is the best way to enjoy Sayzeria. Since I'm back at the States, no cheap places to drink, so I started carrying a hip flask...

If you're looking to add a restaurant that serves cheap and good food onto your list of go-to dining places, then Saizeriya is the place for you. It offers good quality food at really affordable prices, making it a hit among students and working class adults alike.

At Saizeriya, you get what you pay for. Yes, this isn't fine dining. However, for anything between as low as $3.90 to about $13.00, you can get a range of foods from salads to pizzas, pastas and baked rice. Portions are relatively filling, and they taste pretty good especially considering the price. And for about $2.50, you can get free flow drinks as well. They also have a range of desserts, from vanilla ice cream for as low as $1.90 to tiramisu and panna cotta for no more than $5.00.

If you're looking for good food at great prices, and would like something different from your usual hawker fare, then definitely give Saizeriya a try.

Cheap But Doesn't Taste Good
Overall Score 
 
1.5

Saizeriya is very popular with students, but it’s definitely not for the quality of their food. Their meals are indeed very cheap, but the food that my friends and I ordered were not satisfactory.

The pasta was not cooked well, and the carbonara sauce too diluted. The spaghetti bolognese that my friend ordered also suffered from the same problems. The only upside about Saizeriya is the free flow of drinks, so my friends and I stayed there for a long time just chilling and drinking.

Saizeriya has become one of my go-to restaurants for affordable fusion food with my friends. With more than 10 outlets located around Singapore, you can easily find one near you. Saizeriya is known for their ridiculously affordable prices, with pasta dishes ranging from $3.90 to $6.90. Did I mention that the portions are fairly big too?

My favorite dish at Saizeriya has to be the escargots. For only $5.90, you get 6 escargots baked in butter and garlic, not something you can find in restaurants for such a low price. My second favorite dish would be their pastas because of its simple yet tasty flavours.

The food arrives at your table relatively quickly and the waiters respond well to our calls. Overall, although the management seemed to have changed ever since it first opened, I always find myself returning for its value-for-money lunch/dinner fix.

The Orientation Group Restaurant
Overall Score 
 
4.0

Marked by its spacious interior and free-flow drinks, Saizeriya is a popular dining option for orientation groups, CCAs and classes on their first day together.

I usually see Saizeriya as JustAcia with better food, my go-to dish being the Salmon Doria ($5.90). However, the food here isn’t too good either. The Salmon Doria is basically white rice drowning in white sauce - far too creamy for a regular person’s taste buds. They do serve a generous number of smoked salmon pieces though, which are tasty, albeit a little too salty. But considering the extremely cheap prices of the food here, you are getting your money’s worth.

Saizeriya probably isn’t the place to go for a regular meal on a regular day, but do visit if you’re looking for the perfect place to play shoot shag marry with your latest group of friends!

If you're broke but still want to dine out with your buddies, yet wanting to dine in an air-controlled environment that is not fast-food, Saizariya is the place to be. Selling a great range of food from western cuisines, from pastas to pizzas to even escargot, at an amazingly affordable price.

Though the service was super average to bad at times, it was overall comedic the way the staff behaved sometimes. The waiting time for the food was about 10 - 20 minutes. But the waiting time was obsolete since we were just busy catching up with my friends. I got the mushroom pasta and the salmon pizza. Overall, the portions were reasonable and the pizza were not bad at all.

Overall, while the food isn't mind-blowing, I would gladly go back there for the affordability.

Saizeriya used to be a budget-friendly restaurant which serves decent food. Their concept of refillable drinks have earned the praises of many, as well as Western cuisine with little monetary heft.

However, the quality of food has gone down with time. Food delivery up to the table can take as long as 15 minutes, to say the least. The Saizeriya outlet at Bukit Timah Plaza is often shorthanded, and leave customers unattended to. This is bad service for a restaurant of a respectable former glory. What's worse now is that the food has deteriorated in quality. For example, the signature Carbonara pasta is now too creamy. Too much cream makes the eater sick of eating it after a feel mouthfuls. The well-known escargots too, have lost its charm because of lack of garlic, which helps to enhance the fragrance of the dish.

Because of the noticeable drops in quality now, think twice about going to Saizeriya to get your lunch or dinner fix.

Saizeriya has got to be one of my affordable food locations I would go to when I am on a budget. This restaurant is great for friends, groups, families and couples. Sometimes, it gets a little too noisy when large groups done there, especially the branch at The Cathay.

Food is served fast after ordering and drinks are self-service. Plain water is free, but other drinks you need to pay $2.80 for refillable options. My usual dish options will always be the creamy bacon carbonara which is also one of their best seller and chef recommendations there. My friends will choose the vongole clams pasta in spicy seafood sauce. The clams are super tasty and fresh and there are no shell or sand bits inside. We will also order the 8pcs wings set which is honey base marinated. I love the wings, it is so good, especially when it just came out grilled! The slight crispiness of the skin makes you want for more.

The menu has a lot of variety, except desserts which only has a few options to choose from. But try their lava moist cake. They have pizzas, steaks, chicken and sausage combo set which are served on a teppan style plate. Prices are good, cheap and reasonable. Most of the dishes are priced at $5.90, so many students loved to dine there. For this price, you get to fill your stomach full, and you know it is all worth it!

Would definitely go back again!
