Kinsahi is a gem of a restaurant that provides quality Japanese cuisine and very pocket friendly. Very nice ambience and especially love the "misty river" that let's you feel you are dining among the clouds. We over ordered a little for 2 pax which we can't help due to the attractive pricing and wolf down a delicious feast.

There are a few Kinsahi restaurants in Johor Bahru and they serve rather expensive but serves average Japanese fare. Last month, we went there for lunch and sashimi (salmon & tuna) which was actually good & fresh. The sukiyaki was mediocre, I could find better ones elsewhere. The grilled squid was a bit too hard, the teriyaki salmon head was... More

Orders are served very fast. But the noodles doesn't taste well. Sometimes it taste bland & I have to resort to soya sauce. Tried on 3 separate occasions & I raise my hand giving up on this eatery forever. Price is okay & I will consider it as fast food so that my expectations could be lowered

Good choice of Japanese food, from sushi, to shashimi to Bento , to shabu shabu. Large portion, nicely served. Beautiful ambience with a made made lake inside. But they charge for Green tea or water.

We never suspect that there will be a pond in the middle of the restaurant. Yes. The food is nice, and the ambiance is great! The staffs are friendly.

Never regret this decision, ignore all the rest and come in here. Although its on the higher end side, your money will be worth it and the tummy will be happy:) In a modern setting, eat the worries away. Try out the huge variety of sushi and be blown away.

Was there at 6.30 pm to beat the dinner crowd. The staff were polite and very busy and were extremely apologetic when they forgot to bring me the chopstick and when they ran out of Macha ice cream. The quality of the food was good and presentation was superb. Like the fact they had a call bell system and (not... More

My wife and I had a very pleasant dinner here. We both had bentos; they were well presented, well cooked and great tasting. The restaurant was reasonably quiet, (the shopping centre itself was very noisy) cool, and well designed and decorated.
