Clearly this is how Japanese food is supposed to taste

Accustomed to sushi off a conveyor belt this experience was an eye-opening feast. One which makes me wonder about the difference in quality of produce used at chain restaurants and premium locations like Shinji. It was a treat for me and one that will certainly stay on my all time favourites list... read more

This was one of the best sushi experiences and the best in Singapore. The lunch sushi sets are value for money.

Our dinner was a great experience, sitting at the sushi bar (of the St. Regis) and being served directly and non-stop by the head chef who was friendly and fun. We went for the omakase and did not regret it as all items served were top-quality, and very tasteful. Serving staff was excellent, quick, but not intrusive, while the overall... More

As I’ve heard and read so much about Shinji before coming to Singapore and it’s been on my must-try places to eat for some time, I seized the opportunity to dine here on a recent business trip, and I must say, the experience was absolutely sublime and exquisite. It is simply the best sushi restaurant outside Japan. When I walked... More

Booked by email for noon, when I got there they could not find the booking. I was alone so they managed to find a seat at the Sushi Counter. You must book, as seats are limited, and I think it just turns around once for lunch. Read about this place in Trip Advisor. Staff was Japanese. Always within a few... More

Around 2am, I stared vomiting and this repeatedly went on throughout the night (vomited at least 5 times throughout the night and at least 7 in total including the next day) Reached... More

An absolutely fantastic dining experience. Seats about fourteen (so make sure you book), all around it's main sushi counter where you have your own chef preparing your lunch/dinner in front of you. The decor is classic and simple and feels like Japan. We were here for lunch and opted for "Tsuki" (12 pieces of sushi) and were blown away. I... More
