For my partners birthday, I decided Japanese cuisine would be a great choice, given we are both keen on fresh seafood. We had both fresh and tempura bluff oysters to start, followed by the sushi and sashimi platter for two which consisted of fresh salmon,...More

You need to book. While we we were there several people were turned away. Service is fast. Good feel. Local not city centre so not hard to park along the street. The rare beef salad was nice!

Kinji is an eating experience. The decor and atmosphere are simple and evocative of an authentic japanese restaurant. The food is exactly as it should be; clean, delicious flavours, fresh ingredients, beautifully presented and served with friendly efficiency

My wife and I were lucky enough to stumble across Kinji restaurant recently. On entering, the lively and cheerful atmosphere transported us straight to Japan. It was a Monday night and the place was absolutely heaving with (mostly) Japanese customers. Groups of ladies sat demurely...More
