The product is so fresh and we'll prepared but the pricing spoils the experience somewhat. Will return next trip though. Excellent.

You should know what you are getting yourself into before you go otherwise you might be a little overwhelmed. We ordered the Omakase at Singapore $330 each. For two hours... More

Great performance! He had a junior chef beside him doing the more basic tasks. It was nice to see the master teaching him and... 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
