Fantastic! Well Executed Japanese Restaurant

Had the lunch sushi set 12 pieces (including Sea Urchin, Otoro, anago) over the weekend. We sat infront of the Master Sushi Chef Oshino. Felt like we had front row seats to a culinary art show. Great performance! He had a junior chef beside him doing the more basic tasks. It was nice to see the... read more

I previousy had lunch at Shinji (Raffles Hotel) and it was a good experience. Hence my wife and I were looking forward to our dinner in Shinji. The welcome and initial impression was good and was as expected. After ordering our drinks, we proceeded to wait. And wait. And wait. Eventually I figured out that there was an event going... More

http://missneverfull.com/?p=2369 I have been to a lot Michelin starred sushi places in HK and Japan, and Shinji is the best in Singapore so far! Even better than 3* Sushi Yoshitake in Ginza. Even the cheapest lunch set ($75) includes otoro and uni, anago. Friendly staff, nice ambiance, worth it.

We arrived for dinner at this lovely restaurant. The lovely lady welcomed us warmly and with a smile which is rare in Singapore. The restaurant offers 3 package meals, the cheapest is the 15 sushi piece meal with soup and is $220 per pax. We ordered the sushi meal and immediately the lady's face changed and in front of us...

I had a superlative experience at Shinji for lunch. So many reviews said they were top notch so I was skeptical when I arrived. It was a Monday & I didn't have a reservation. No matter as the seats around the sushi counter were not all filled. Opting for the most luxurious or Omakase lunch (at S$250 a small fortune).... More

When you come to Shinzo you can expect great service and quality of food. I guess it's worth paying for such assurance. Chef never let you down. Our 3rd visit and we always leave happy. Thank you guys.

A unique experience, very fresh & well prepared sushi, excellent service. Booking a table is advisable. For a better price, go for lunch.

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. I learned for example that sushi served with... 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
