A great experience if you are a fan of sashimi/ sushi (including cuttlefish sperm & monk fish liver!). Undeniably fabulous sashimi and sushi; also undeniably expensive. We went on a Monday evening when there were not many diners and the sushi bar was lacking in...More

Fish is super fresh and delicious! The staff is really nice and accesible. They will not give you what you ask them not to and they will substitute your pieces with something else instead of just not giving anything to you like other omakase places....More

The decor here is Tokyo authentic and the fish direct from the Tokyo fish market (literally). As you could expect the Sushi is unbelievable!! However, with a $200, $300 or $500 price per head, it's not a cheap nite out. The only goods news is...More

Had the Omakase and the 9piece set for both of us. Probably the best tuna sashimi i have eaten (i dare say even better than the ones we tried in Osaka at kurumon ichiba market!) Ended with nice birthday surprise from the chefs!

Had an Omakase lunch at Shinji. We were time constrained so we requested the sashimi and sushi. The sashimi and sushi were impeccable. Wonderfully fresh and melted in the mouth. The pickled ginger was also excellent - most unusual texture and flavour. Service was discreet...More
