This was our second visit to kinji which lived up to our first visit. Food is absolutely delicious, all four of us said it is possibly the best food we have ever eaten. Service is friendly and professional.Looking forward to going back!

My bf and I tried Kinji on 11Dec night. To my surprised the fresh oysters were really big, creamy and delicious and went perfectly well with japanese sauce. However, the sushi was not as brilliant as I thought.

Modest exterior but inside is the most reliable Japanese restaurant in Christchurch. Fast, efficient service, interesting menu and a good wine list. Try the Saki flight. Favourite venue for our family.
