This chirashi set costs $40. I find it rather expensive as the sashimi slices are rather thin although they do taste fresh (and cold). Some of the sashimi types include scallop, salmon, swordfish, and tuna. The sashimi had very little sweetness in it but I like how the fish roes aren't salty and went well with the rice. The salad dressing is a little salty while the miso soup tastes just right - not overly salty. There are also seaweed and tofu in the miso soup. At this price, there's many other

Foie Gras & Scallop Sushi - $22

The eyes brightened up on sight of the generous portion of foie gras and meaty scallop. The tiny rice roll can barely 'support' the weight lor. Thumb up for this!

Kinki Okonomiyaki - $26

The first two dishes were good but not filling. We browsed through the menu, looking for something that can be filling and still affordable, and ended up with okonmiyaki.

Overall, we really enjoyed the food, with creative item such as the Foie Gras & Scallop Sushi. However, the pricing was kinda steep (we spent close to $100 for 3 items), even the hot ocha cost $4 per pax.

Guess I will probably save the place for treats on special days. Not to forget if you are seated near to the windows, you will get a good view of the Singapore River as well. =)

We were greeted with a charming service staff which presented the spicy mayo salmon served in mini lemon flavored cones to us. Brownie points to the wonderfully creative presentation and double that for the creamy consistent texture of these canapes.

The baked vine cherry tomato tartlets were picturesque, shiny with a glaze of balsamic sauce. Nesting the entire tartlet into your mouth will result in exhilaration when the juicy cherry tomatoes burst. An interesting swirl of sweet and savoury in a single pop. Had to take a picture but I wanted to throw this into my mouth already! First world dilemmas, eh?

The sous vide marinated scallops lined with thick unagi sauce was wrapped in fresh ohba leaves, formed a delightful little combination which was flavourful and indulging with the fat scallops. This looked the least appetizing, but ended up being the hot favourite of the night.

I was hunting around for places to eat around the Fullerton Bay area and came across this very interesting Japanese restaurant called Kinki (what a cute name, don't you think?). Kinki sits just on the edge of the Kallang River, directly overlooking the majestic Marina Bay Sands hotel. The view from the restaurant is excellent on a clear day and I'm sure the night view will be even more stunning! It was rather packed for a weekday lunch, and we were told that it was full house when we got there.

It was rather packed for a weekday lunch, and we were told that it was full house when we got there. However, the service staff were kind enough to make a table for us when we mentioned that we were just looking for a quick bite. But be sure to make a reservation beforehand to avoid disappointment.

Their menu is rather impressive - not the usual Japanese food you would find at other restaurants. From Blue Fin Tuna, Sowrdfish, to even more exotic dishes including Foie Gras & Scallop Sushi or Sea Urchin. Prices can be quite steep, so be prepared to splurge on good food! >.<"

I ordered the Negi Toro Don ($28) which consists of chopped Ootoro and Scallions on rice. Ootoro is taken from the most tender part of the Tuna belly and is packed with loads of Omega-3 goodness - I could eat this all week and not get bored of the freshness of the tuna.

The scallions also add a refreshing kick to the dish. It's a very simple dish that is all about the natural goodness of the tuna and well-flavoured sushi rice. You don't need any fancy sauces - it's just all-natural goodness that makes this dish extremely good!

My Negi Toro Don also came with a Red Bean Mochi on the side. While it's not exactly the softest mochi I've tasted, it had a pretty good chewy texture to it. Plus, I'm always picky when it comes to my desserts - they shouldn't be too overly sweet and this mochi was just right. The red bean paste inside was sweet enough to compliment the mochi skin dusted with matcha powder.

Having traveled all the way to there for lunch, it would be a shame if we didn't get to try their other food items. So we decided to order an Unagi & Hokkaido Scallop Maki ($28) to share. This dish didn't impress me too much as I didn't quite like the deep fried Tempura exterior of the maki.

Nestled inside layers of sushi rice is a slice of unagi, scallop, snow crab and avocado - a perfect combination, except for the tempura battered exterior which kinda ruined it for me. But it was still quite an interesting dish to try and I am definitely looking forward to coming back here again for more!

Another interesting thing about Kinki is its design concept - the ceiling is filled with manga art and so is their menu. You will also find feisty wall murals of their mascot (this Japanese Sumo wrestler). I also enjoyed their sushi bar counter where you can watch the chefs skillfully slice up the sashimi for you. Oh, and did I mention that they even have an alfresco rooftop bar area for you to party?

Overall, Kinki serves up super awesome authentic Japanese food in a funky artsy setting, making it a definite must-try for all Japophiles! =D

At a Japanese restaurant, how well they treat their customers can be told from the quality of food they prepare an serve. In the simplest form, it is their sashimi. Hence, I ordered a Chirashi Set ($40) when I visited them for lunch. It is a very fulfilling set as a variety of sashimi were served on Japanese rice which is nicely done. It also comes with a side salad, miso soup, pickles and desserts too - azuki red bean in a green tea mochi ball. Yums!

The selection of seafood in the Chirashi set differs day to day depending on the Chef's freshest catch of the day. Hence, diners can get to enjoy the best seasonal fishes and be wow-ed each time they order this. From prawns, salmon, tuna, herring, fish roe and a slice of tamago, I was able to savour the freshest seafood right with my bowl of rice. It goes perfectly with the freshly grated wasabi which won't leave a choking after taste unlike pre-packed tube ones.

Besides this, I had the Unagi & Hokkaido Scallop Maki ($28) which was sheer delight with a lightly crusted tempura. After sinking the tooth through the light crust, I was greeted with the sweet and delicious snow crab meat with avocado that's between all the goodness. Thankfully, the avocado wasn't overwhelming and I was able to enjoy the sweetness of the various seafood. This is a perfect maki for those who do not like raw fishes and of course, children will enjoy it too!

Although I was there during the busy lunch hour without any reservation, the friendly and thoughtful staff greeted us at the door and quickly cleared up a table to accommodate us. It was definitely a memorable meal at Kinki and I would be returning to the restaurant with a reservation.

While the quality of the food was generally fair, the prices made this place a no-go for future visits, especially since the portions of the ala carte dishes were quite miniscule. My tip is to only order the set meals as they are a lot more value-for-money. Or else, take a business associate there if an expense account is applicable.

We had:

1) Sashimi Platter, consisting Maguro ($24 for 5 pcs), Kajiki ($20 for 5 pcs) and Sake ($18 for 5 pcs) which is essentially tuna, swordfish and salmon respectively. I liked the freshness and natural sweetness of the thickly sliced fish, but thought $62 for the entire platter was shockingly pricey

2) Tofu Steak Set Lunch ($18) - comprising a grilled organic incredibly smooth tofu steak slathered in a fragrant garlic teriyaki sauce, then topped off with sauteed mountain vegetables and served with a side of juicy seasoned momotaro tomatoes

3) Pan-Seared Foie Gras & Scallop Sushi ($88 for 4 pcs) and Wagyu Aburi Sushi ($35 for 2 pcs). I'm not a fan of foie gras per se, but the melt-in-your-mouth goose liver married the fresh scallop perfectly, and the seared beef was also meltingly tender and flavoursome. Ridiculously expensive sushi, but memorably delicious

4) Sashimi Set with Rice ($38) - a favourite with the ladies because of the fresh, plump sashimi

5) Buta Sushi ($18 for 2 pcs) - a delectable topping of slow roasted pork belly was moist, flavoursome and decadently fatty, with a wrapping of seaweed lending dimension to the sushi. Still, it was a bit painful knowing each mouthful of sushi cost 9 whole bucks

The prices at Kinki restaurant are really expensive and I feel it is totally not worth the money. I ordered the green tea ice cream with red beans which costs $8. The service of the staff was good which probably make up for the prices of the food. I like the ambience as it is very cosy, it makes a great place for fine dining in Japanese style. The ice cream tasted average, nothing really special despite the high rocket price.

I went to kinki with a group of friends to celebrate a friend’s birthday. I simply love the sushi at kinki’s. unlike other sushi, the amount of rice on one sushi is quite little and the ingredient is fairly a lot. My favourite is the foie gras with scallop sushi. The foie gras is cooked perfectly. The scallop is fresh and juicy. as a whole, the sushi is very refreshing and delicious.

A restaurant with unfriendly (or should I say rude) and judgmental service. The restaurant is located on the second floor of Customs House and upon arrival, the staff would give a quick 'once over' of you from head to toe and then decide if they should smile or not.

They did but I still do not like the fact that the staff should even carry such a thought. As we made a reservation, my mom and I were directed to our seats by the window, having a great view of the river and Marina Bay Sands. The restaurant has great ambience and a couple of walls are decorated with a splash of graffiti, giving it an overall modern but authentic Japanese restaurant.

I ordered the Teriyaki Chicken and a bowl of white rice. The teriyaki chicken tasted more like dark sauce chicken but it was still tasty. The meat was well marinated and tender but I guess I should have requested to have the skin removed. The white rice grains were soft but retained its natural crunchiness, however it didn't seem to me that it was Japanese rice grains. Instead, it occurred to me that it was Chinese rice grains.

Had a scoop of macha green tea ice-cream for dessert. The ice-cream did not melt quickly and sustained its solid state for a long period of time. The green tea flavor was intense and the ice-cream was heavenly creamy.

Do note that the prices are on the high side though and for its standard, I'd say you could get better food elsewhere for the cost. Ambience is lovely but service definitely has room for improvement- much room.

The teriyaki chicken was tender and the sauce tasted just right. The rice was fragrant as well. Overall, the food was good. But, I wouldn’t say the same applies to the service of staff.

Reservation is a must if you want a nice ambience which overlooks the river view. I made reservations a few days in advance for the windows seats. Sadly we arrived just 5 minutes later, and we were left with the counter seats as the staff gave our window seats to someone else.

The average price per person was around $30+, which I thought it was ok for the ambience and quality of food.

Food and ambience – Good
Service of staff – Needs alot of improvement

Prices are on the high side though. For the same price, I can get a better chirashi at Aoki =)
