Wonderful place that you wont be disappointed if you love eating sushi and sashimi. Please note that the food is more traditional sushi so it is not the same as what you eat in a normal Japanese restaurant. It is not cheap, but if you appreciate quality food then this is one place you should go. They have 2 branches... More

Be prepared for exorbitant prices for some of the best sushi in Singapore, but definitely worth the high price for this unique sushi experience.

We were seated at the sushi bar, only 8 seats in total with two chefs. Everything is made fresh in front of you, really enjoyed the experience. Kind of "you make it and we eat it!" The Urchin is real fresh, very tasty indeed, the chef made something with the Urchin, I will call it Urchin "fried rice", but not... More

Was too excited when I got Shinji's reservation, been hearing really good reviews about this restaurant. I learned it the hard way. Shinji is a rip off. For $250, without tax (almost $300 with service charge and tax) we got the lowest quality of fish, maybe it was not my lucky day?? Or they thought "Indonesians will pay anyways, they... More

Having eaten in many Japanese restaurants in several countries (all outside of Japan) I have to say this is the best. Not only is the quality of the sashimi and sushi next level but it's a real dining expereince. Professional sushi chefs expertly prepare each course in front of you and serve it immediately. Every detail is perfect from the... More

Loved Shinji. Came here with the BF during our stay in Singapore and was pleasantly surprised that the price for our experience paid off. We both had the $350 omakase that had variations of dishes and sushi. I eat sushi about 2-3 times a week and am kind of a snob. Most new places I try rarely live up to... More

If you're after a dining experience that is worthy of that in Japan itself then you should try Shinji. Service was excellent and the sashimi as fresh as you could get without being in Japan. The prices were fair given the high quality produce that they prepared for us.

I firmly believe that this is quite possibly the best Japanese restuarant outside of japan. I always come back for more. I ordered the omakase set, the lighter one for my birthday. It started with some appetizers like uni and squid and then it got better. The sushi is very fresh but perfectly marinated and done with the touch of... More

This probably is the best meal I have had. I have never been to Japan so if Sushi is better there then I hope I go soon. My client took me here and I have to say when I looked at the prices I blushed so try and find someone to take you there. The food is fresh and sculptured... More
