good sushi but overpriced a bit

i would say it might be a good sushi restaurant overall. But i doubt it can be really claimed as best sushi outside Japan. I would expect better food given it's ranked top 50 asian restaurant among just a few Singapore restaurants. nice place with good privacy and intimate. The Japanese chef is... read more

The level of quality here is too dream for in Europe. Our chef was explicit and professional. Service and food was perfect. The only minus is the high price. The "big" omakase is expensive, but with a menu including 4 kinds of Uni, you will expect this. Sake was absolutely great. Best sushi experience outside and maybe inside of Jspan.

Went with a group of 6. The bill came up to $2400 including a bottle of sake. The food is at its' freshest and finest. Is authentic jap food with no fusion. They do it the traditional way. Do request for room sitting, u have better privacy then the main hall.

I have visited shinji at Raffles hotel 3 times within the past 10 months, they never fail to deliver a high standard of finely crafted sushi. Ever since my first time at Shinji, it opened my mind on how good sushi can be. Ever since then, i've abandoned all the other seafood rice masquarading as 'sushi'. End of the day,... More

I tried and loved the sister restaurant in Macau and decided to give the one in Singapore a try. I wasn't disappointed! You can choose from three different sets and I went for the biggest one. Totally delicious but way more than I could eat. The four varieties of sea urchin was amazing! The sashimi and sushi were fresh and... More

Don't think it's worth to spend this much money on sushi. The food was good, don't get me wrong, but it was just way overpriced. There are plenty of other options for great sushi in Singapore to spend your money on/

As a Sushi Lover, I tried to squeeze my time from all the meeting just to try this restaurant. Cost for dinner is quite high, 300 SGD ++ for Omakase course. But I have to say that I was satisfied. Wabasi here is extreme strong but yet give you a very good experience.

I love the sushi there. The service staff and sushi chef are friendly. They can speak good English so don't worry if you don't speak Japanese. They carry good range of sakes. You can ask for sushi bar counter when you make reservation. Most of the time it is full so please make reservation in advance especially weekend is very... More

We went there for our wedding anniversary lunch. And boy, we were not disappointed. We had the Omakase and we were very impressed by everything that was served by the chef. Food was so simple and delicious and we enjoyed watching the chef in action. Definitely worth the price and it's a really nice place for special occasions.
