Distinguished as the finest Japanese restaurant in all of Singapore (it is the highest ranked on just about every dining list there is), Shinji is one of those places that is reserved for special occasions, the food here being absolutely sublime, and the bill costing a pretty penny.
At $300 a pop for the cheapest omakase dinner option, Shinji is also renown to be the most expensive Japanese restaurant in Singapore. The multi-course meal is well worth it though, sparkling fresh, immaculately finessed and exquisitely plated.
The restaurant, a pinewood-ed space of tranquility, is split up into several dining rooms, each one kept small so a single chef can helm it, and each room it can be switched up into a private space.
Service was intuitive, attentive, and unobtrusive. The waitresses were stealthy like ninjas, I never really saw them around, but my teacup was always filled to the brim, and barely a second after we whipped out our credit card, they appeared with the bill! We actually looked up to see if there were cameras in the room watching our every move.
Best save this for a special occasion.
brother visiting from the States, so took him and my gf for a nice dinner. Sushi chef rudely made fun of brother's 'asian glow' in front of the entire restaurant.
After paying the bill, my brother asked to try a piece of fish that the chef was preparing that was not a part of our meal. Chef agreed, 'no problem' and we left. but that didnt stop the waitress from chasing us down outside of the restaurant with a second bill for $50 for the one piece of fish.
spent $1200 for dinner for three, and completely ruined the experience w/ rude service and classless nickle-and-diming.
if you don't mind spending michelin three-star money for pretty good sushi and bad service, this works. good for lunch on the corporate card perhaps
This unplanned lunch turned out to be the best Japanese cuisine I had up to date. My friend was in town last Friday and we were supposed to meet at Shibuya but he somehow ended at Shinji instead. So, we had a luxurious lunch session at Shinji by Kanesaka. This is the extension of 2-star Michelin Chef Shinji Kanesaka’s Edo-style sushi restaurant that first set up in Tokyo’s exclusive Ginza district. Lunch sets are range from S$75.00- S$250.00. We ordered Hana Set S$75.00 (9pcs of sushi)

Asari (clam) clear soup was served hot and refreshing. I can taste the sweetness of the clams in the soup broth. Didn’t managed to capture the mini clams as I was rushing for time.
The meal is completed with dessert but I missed it. I couldn’t wait any longer and decided to give up on it and headed back to office. Thus, do take note that if you are planning to dine in, be prepared to have an estimate 2 hours lunch time so that you can enjoy comfortably.
The service staffs here were polite and friendly. They are attentive to customers’ needs to ensure the customers enjoyed the meal throughout the session. Total bill for 2 pax S$176.55 inclusive of 10% service charge and 7% GST.
