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

Had the hana 9 piece lunch set for $75. Every single sushi was an artwork and so skillfully prepared. It was a joy to watch the chef prepare it infront of you. Every piece was a delight. expect a lovely surprise if you go on your birthday!

It is relatively expensive but try it once and you will be longing for more! Definitely worth a visit! I had the Omakase Wa for dinner. Ingredients were really fresh and service was immaculate! Chef was also really humorous and kept us entertained throughout. Make sure you ask for counter seats because it will make the experience so much better!... More

Shinji is a small restaurant where the focus is superb food and excellent service. It is one of the finest sushi restaurants I have visited and whilst the cost is considerable, so is the quality of the food and attention to detail. If you like sushi then it is a must visit ....

Shinji is an impeccable dining experience. The fish is prepared in a traditional fashion and served with a delicate precision. Lovely wooden decor for the interior provided a comfortable setting for the meal. We would definitely recommend the omakase and you will not be disappointed. The highlight was when the chef revealed a box of uni and we watched as... More

Shinji is a cosy and intimate Japanese on the second floor of Raffles Hotel, with a traditional warm, soft wood interior. It has a lovely ambiance and the staff are polite, helpful and impeccably efficient. We ate a ten course menu of gourmet seafood delights. The presentation was flawless and the variety exquisite. There were whole, deep fried hardshell baby... More
