We had the 'middle' sized menu, lots of different mouthfuls of all sorts of things! The guy doing the slicing spoke pretty good English and explained it all as we went along. Puddings delicious as well. There was a lot to eat so make sure you are hungry when you go!

A friend bought me to Shinji for dinner. what i liked about the restaurant is that we were seated around the counter right in front of Chef Oshino! He whipped up his culinary skills, slicing all the fresh produce pretty skillfully. very patiently explaining to us what the dishes were when served to us. Loved the servings as there were... More

Love the freshness and variety in the menu. Chose the S$300 course. Lovely food display. Reservation required as it is a small restaurant.

On a recent trip to Singapore, I booked for lunch to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday, as he loves Japanese. I was hoping that the restaurant would live up to the hype that I had read on this and other websites. I had emailed for the booking about 2 weeks out and had to confirm the morning of our booking,... More

In Singapore, this is the best I've tried so far. The sushi is really fresh and you can taste the difference in quality here. I enjoyed every single dish. But that's not all, there are little things I observed here that I think really makes this place stand out. For example, I am left-handed but I did not tell anyone... More

If quality top grade food is your priority, SHINJI is a MUST GO. I have called in on a Monday to book for lunch for Tues, however i was told that the restaurant was fully booked for lunch. Only to be surprised on Tuesday morning that seats were made available! Every single dish had the "wow effect"! Ingredients were fresh... More

Being served by Keiichi-san has been a true honour for my husband and I. we were looking for the best sushi dinner in Singapore and we found it here. No need to say further: service, ingredients, settings and food were excellent. Definitely we will come again and again.

Shinji is easily the best sushi restaurant in Singapore. I travel to Singapore on a monthly basis and I have become a regular customer there, you cannot get fresher sushi that the ones in Shinji. It is not cheap, but definitely worth every dollar of it.

This was our third visit to Shinji (but first time to EOI branch). Kikuchi San was the sushi master who served us all this while. He was such talented chef. He prepared the food according to our needs, especially for my children. He knew that my children like kani maki (crab hand rolls), he especially prepared the real crab meat... More
