Sashimi was one of the freshest I've had in the world. The sushi master chef was a wonder to watch as he yielded his knifing skills, prepared the sushi rice and added just the right amount of wasabi. A tad expensive but you definitely get what you pay for.

THis was my first experience at a Japanese restaurant of this quality. Course after course of outstanding Sushi; Downing sake shots with the chef; incredible knife artistry by the chef; fish that melts in your mouth. I cannot say enough about this restaurant. It was unforgettable.

Went to shinji last week and the food was just out of this world. The sashimi and uni were really fresh and service was impeccable. Price is of course higher than most Japanese restaurants but at least we are paying for really high quality stuff.

Wonderful place that you wont be disappointed if you love eating sushi and sashimi. Please note that the food is more traditional sushi so it is not the same as what you eat in a normal Japanese restaurant. It is not cheap, but if you appreciate quality food then this is one place you should go. They have 2 branches... More

Be prepared for exorbitant prices for some of the best sushi in Singapore, but definitely worth the high price for this unique sushi experience.

We were seated at the sushi bar, only 8 seats in total with two chefs. Everything is made fresh in front of you, really enjoyed the experience. Kind of "you make it and we eat it!" The Urchin is real fresh, very tasty indeed, the chef made something with the Urchin, I will call it Urchin "fried rice", but not... More

Was too excited when I got Shinji's reservation, been hearing really good reviews about this restaurant. I learned it the hard way. Shinji is a rip off. For $250, without tax (almost $300 with service charge and tax) we got the lowest quality of fish, maybe it was not my lucky day?? Or they thought "Indonesians will pay anyways, they... More

Having eaten in many Japanese restaurants in several countries (all outside of Japan) I have to say this is the best. Not only is the quality of the sashimi and sushi next level but it's a real dining expereince. Professional sushi chefs expertly prepare each course in front of you and serve it immediately. Every detail is perfect from the... More

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.
