We absolutely loved this darling Japanese restaurant. It's in the back of a strip mall, but has tons of atmosphere inside, and wonderful food & service. We tried a wide variety of menu items (sushi, veggies, steak), and they were all excellent. Don't miss the flank steak that you cook yourself on a sizzling hot rock!!!

This is the best sushi restaurant in Oxford. They also have great drinks to chose from. The outdoor dining is nice when the weather permits. Give it a try.

We visited Jinsay after we were at the movies. It is open late, full bar, and great menu. Order the tempura green beans or edamame for starters, then if you are hungry buda bowl with seafood. Good wine list also. They have outdoor seating also. Great service. One of our favorites

Weird location but great sushi and cold dishes. Unique combinations. Food delivery was a little slow but the server kept checking on us and updating the time.

We had five people in our party and visited on February 13...big Valentines night. We met at 7:30 and finally got seated after 9:00...but it was a big night for Valentines. The bar atmosphere is nice and cozy and bartenders were friendly and worked hard. I recommend the house pinot noir if you like red wine. Mai Thai was good... More

While this place is great for any occasion, it is especially a great date night place. Everything from drinks to food we have had there has been delicious. You can get kobe beef and they bring out a steaming hot rock for you to cook it on, which makes for a fun experience. They also have a great porch to... More

Jinsei is a sleek sushi restaurant with an excellent menu and very good service. My only complaint is the noise level [amped-up music], maybe more attractive to a younger crowd. Just about every kind of sushi and sashimi are served plus some appetizer portions - like wontons. Prices run the gamut from very reasonable to high.

Thank Walt A
