Jin is a Japanese concept-dining restaurant on Telok Ayer Street on Far East Square in Singapore. Secretly nestled in the AMOY Hotel, a high-end Japanese dining experience in a dark-wood, red table- topped dining room reminiscent of an Eastern-version of something from Blade Runner, only with loads more daylight. Needless to say, we’re big fans over here! Guests at the AMOY Hotel and savvy Singaporeans are getting the word out that Jin is the place to get excellent, fresh Japanese food in town.
Finding really good Japanese food in Singapore isn’t exactly a challenge. In fact, the city is awash with
wonderful places to get great udon noodles and brimming bowls of miso soup. However, what is happening
at Jin is clearly something special. Opened to great fanfare in November 2014, Jin at
AMOY hotel on Far East Square has retained the freshness of the ingredients through its
minimally-invasive preparation techniques and in its cooking.
Jin is serving up beautifully salted plates of seafood to AMOY hotel guests and wowing Singaporeans with dishes like sweet shrimps and scallops, served up with red caviar and a generous helping of wasabi, as well as lobster sashimi and maguro and salmon. Each dish is prepared simply and the flavours are allowed to speak for themselves. Headed by Japanese cuisine superstar Thomas Kok, a man whose CV reads like a who’s-who of every restaurants in Singapore and with more than of 30 years’ experience in the kitchen, a visit to Jin pays very serious dividends for fans of Japanese food in Singapore.
Nice ambience and a helpful waitress who guided us the thick menu. Enjoyable place to have lunch in a secluded yet not difficult to locate.
We had a great meal at Jin Fine Dining. The location is interesting, and my daughter had a great time looking at the hotel model near the lobby. The restaurant service was impeccable, and the food was great. We will definitely try to go back for lunch to try the lunch set menu.
Great food, nice ambience. The chirashi came with seasoned rice, which was flavourful. Food came relatively fast for weekday lunch. Love that they accept reservations for weekday lunches.
