Wow this place is fantastic! It is located in a rather non descript set of shops but don't let the suburban location put you off going. This place is hands down the best Japanese in CHC without a doubt. The quality of food, the service,...More

A typical sushi restaurant. We were disappointed because we wanted some food we saw on the gallery on their website but it wasn't available. :( misleading advertising. We had the sushi/sashimi bento and nigiri platter and it was fine. The kinji fried chicken looked good.

Arrived late in Christchurch, needed a place for dinner for 7 (2 adults, 5 kids), and chose Kinji based on TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet. A fantastic decision, even with the “trek” (10 minutes) out to the ‘burbs of Christchurch — wonderful service, well prepared sushi...More
