“A lovely meal”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We have been numerous times to shinjuku restaurant and have enjoyed every one. The food is good and the selection is great. The restaurant has been very quiet during the nights we went which made for a relaxing dinner

“Just the ticket”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

This met family approval for lunch, something on the menu for all ages. 10 and 12 year old were quickly onto the pancakes and the 6 year old the dumplings. the adults chose the Fish and Salmon boxes - a great way to sample across the menu, of note was the crumbed fish and the salad in a perfect light vinegar dressing that we must find out more about. The staff charming and handled children well.

“Genuine Japanese in Hamilton”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Shinjuku offers a original and delicious variety of the Japanese cuisine. We were surprised to see dishes that Japanese restaurants in big cities do not offer.

It is highly recommended to go there.

“We go here often as the food is so good”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Shinjuku never fails to impress us. Lovely food and relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff also help to make an enjoyable evening. Our only suggestion would be to let people finish their starters before bringing out the main course as our table for 4 people became very cluttered with dishes. We do however appreciate that we could bring our own wine though. We have been to Shinjuku several times over the last couple of years and will continue to return as we love the cuisine. Our Japanese student also loved the food and said it was as good as some restaurants in Tokyo which I think is a great recommendation.
