One of the top 5 dining experiences I have had. A Michelin star should tell you what you need to know and this restaurant is as good as the the top Omakase restaurants in Ginza. Chef Ishizawa presents and endless flow of fresh Japanese delicacies over about a 2 hour period. I am not a huge sea urchin (Uni) fan... More

I'll start off by saying that at 250 ++ (around $300) per pax, this was probably one of the most expensive lunch i've ever had in my life (without alcohol). Made a reservation for 2 person for a weekday lunch, and was promptly seated at the table by a Japanese lady. Service was really good and there was a personal... More

Located at the Raffles hotel, we went there not knowing what to expect, once we got there and saw a small restaurant we knew the experience was gonna be epic. If you come to Shinji you know you will get the best sushi in town.. 100% fresh!

My husband and I were celebrating a special occasion and decided on Shinji @ Raffles Hotel for lunch at the sushi counter on a Saturday in September and were not disappointed. We have previously dined at several Michelin star restaurants in Japan, and were keen to try Shinji. We ordered the 12 piece sushi course. My husband and I thoroughly... More

Last year I went to Hashida sushi, and this year to Shinji. I think both restaurants are equally good. At Shinji my husband and I ordered the Hana set and the Omakase special for lunch. Total bill was about $380+. Sushi is very good, though the pieces seem to be smaller than what I had in Tokyo. I remember that... More

I strongly feel that I have to voice this out to warn potential patrons/customers. As much as I love and adore Shinji based on my 2 previous visits, what I encountered today is just unacceptable. As I had a heavy breakfast, I decided to opt for the 9-piece Hana lunch set menu. The head chef then went on to ask... More

Dinner for 4 with Japanese guests in a private room. Set menu. Great variety, every course fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. Even the cold sake was outstanding. Excellent service throughout. My guests and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Very expensive, but worth it.

With the recent Michelin star introduction in Singapore, this is the 1st restaurant with a Michelin star that i visited. I went to another Michelin star restaurant the next day and by comparison, food is so much fresher and delicious, ambiance is quiet yet cosy, and the attentiveness of the chef and waitresses were a class up. There are 3... More
