Excellent, but doesnt compare to that in tokyo

having been to both shinji a few times and their parent branch in Tokyo, kanasaka. I have to say that for a fine-dining sushi establishment, this is one of the very best in Singapore. but cannot compare to that in japan. Prices are a little on the steep side, and I always tell my boyfriend that... read more

Had a lovely meal at Shinji by Kanesaka. My sister had pre-booked the Omakase Shin menu - their premium Omakase menu beforehand and so we did not have to make any choices for our dinner. The pacing of the meal was excellent as we had a little private room to ourselves. We were served a variety of appetisers including the... More

Its my second time to try Omakaze in shinji. Its surely one of my favourite restaurant when i visit singapore. Shinji has the most japanese chef that i've seen in singapore. Their sashimi is very fresh, just like Tsukiji market in tokyo. Must book as they are fully packed.

Need to make a reservation to come here. We were ordered 2 types of omakase. Both were so good. Sashimi were so fresh and sake was really good. Chef and staff so friendly

3rd omakase experience. Came with high expectation because of good reviews I've heard. The sushi and ingredients were certainly very fresh, but freshness is the basic expectation of any Japanese cuisine in my opinion. In terms of artistic presentation, it was mediocre. Taste wise, every dish was good but did not bring me to heaven. Still, Hide remains top on... More

Shinji has some of the best sushi, if not the best sushi I have ever had. The ishi knows what they are doing and concentrate on the task at hand with great precision. It is pricey but my goodness it's worth it!!!!

I have had the opportunity to try many fine sushi establishment so my review is base on peer to peer comparison. I had high expectations for Shinji but my friend and I were underwhelmed, the fish was fresh although my mackerel had a very strong smell which was distracting. Second, the cut of the fish was wrong. You should be... More

Having read numerous reviews I was worried by expectations would be too high and would be left disappointed after dining. I was so wrong! Even with the highest of expectations Shinji managed to surpass them. A great meal, friendly and knowledgeable service staff (ask them anything and I bet they will know) and beautiful environment. I will be back !
