This was the first time I had been to a Japanese Restaurant and man, did it leave a good taste in my mouth. I was lucky enough to go to Kinji Japanese Restaurant outside of the hours (around lunchtime) and i got a tasty, fulling おべんと (lunchbox). It contained a few dumplings, a few pieces of chicken, japanese style, a... More

The food was absolutely delicious!! The service provided by our waitress was amazing!! She was so helpful, so patient and had suggestions for those that were becoming overwhelmed with the mouth watering choices on the menu....and always with a smile on her face! Well done Kinji! It's no wonder you are so popular and so busy!!

Nice to see a traditional restaurant passionate about their origin. Menu variety was confusing with three different menus given to us. Once we decided on our choices we were not disappointed. flavour and presentation great. Make sure you plan to go here and book in advance even for early week dining.

Modern, but authentic style Japanese food, with heaps of specialty dishes to try! Once you've eaten there, you'll understand why it's always busy (book ahead!).

I used to love this restaurant & we booked for my birthday a spot. What made this restaurant stand out in Christchurch was the taste of the food which was very close to a restaurant in Japan. This uniqueness is gone, completely! Also the quality of food, presentation "super", taste "average or even less". We got Sushi and a warning... More

Great little restaurant with a lovely selection of food. We shared two teppans, sashimi, the venison tataki (it was insanely good), the fried chicken (also ridiculously good) and tempura vegies. Reasonably priced and so delicious!

Awesome Japanese at a good price can be hard to find but look no further. This was Devine. Having moved away from city centre after the Quake, this restaurant has maintained its standard in food. Worth the drive wherever you are staying in Chch.
