Love the service the food is really good. Miso soup its awesome, sashimi's are fresh and very taste. Sushi rolls are really good and enough for two per roll. Place gets busy pretty fast particularly at lunch. We had a table for 6 and it was hard to get more people in. Place is small so you better plan to... More

Just found it while in the neighborhood. This is a quick lunch with Chirashi. Most sushi places just throws their odds and ends into the bowl, but this one place nicely sliced fish over rice. Fish slices are common varieties but they are fresh. It is also not very crowded (this is a residential neighborhood).

Ate there yesterday with 4 friends. We all enjoyed our meals. I had seared salmon combo with salmon and tuna sashimi. Delicious! Hot saki was the perfect accompaniment. Good service.

OK sushi but they used to be much better. There are better choices downtown but this place is rarely packed.

Liked the taste and presentation of the food. The decor is nice and easy and bar area is an added attraction. Sushi rolls tasted great and quantities were good.

We've been going to Shiki ever since it opened years back. It is our fall back/go to sushi spot. They have multiple locations now, but the original is still the best.

Since discovering this restaurant 2 weeks ago we've been 3 times! The sushi here is amazing, and very reasonably priced. (A California roll is $5.00, and it was seriously the best California roll that we've had) They have both specialty rolls as well as more traditional sushi. Would definitely recommend.

This is our "go to" sushi spot. Whether it is just my wife and I, or family and friends. This is the place to go.

If you like Uni and Unagi, here is a top flight Japanese sushi restaurant. Not the least expensive, but worth it!
