We sat at the bar with chef preparing the meal in front of us. They onoy have 3 set price menues and not a la carte. We chose the middle menu ($300 per person) and were not disappointed. We decided to go to town on the budget and ordered a bottle of Champagne to drink with our meal. This was... More

We were there to celebrate our 25 th wedding anniversary. In a small room with 8 seats, chef Ishizawa showed his talents in 2 hours. Everything in the restaurant except water was brought from Japan. Every bit we tasted was so fresh and tasty. Sea urchin from Hokkaido was spectacular, I had not tasted such a good sea urchin even... More

Went for dinner with a group of 5 at the Shinji, Raffles hotel. We took the smaller rooms which can occupy up to 8 pax. Ideal for group and also cosy. Food was great and fresh sashimi. We took omekashi set dinner and cost a lot with 2 bottles of sake. It was recently crowned with 1 star Michelin and... More

Absolute fantastic sushi, prepared and beautifully presented by knowledgeable, dedicated experts. Not cheap - but the quality justifies the price.

Located on the second level of the Raffles Hotel, Shinji sushi offered me an amazing authentic Japanese gourmet experience. I was there with my fiancee for a casual lunch. We ordered Hana (flower) set-lunch. The 9 pieces meal was definitely enough to fill your stomach. The chef prepared the freshest ingredients in front of us and he’d proportioned the size... More

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
