Zagat rated! Excellent Sushi! Nice decor good service... only downside it is the music they play is loud! If loud is your thing..not a problem . However, despite the noise issue it is worth visiting for lunch or dinner

While a little pricey, Shakou offers up some of the best tasting sushi/shashima that I've had the pleasure of experiencing. Are there as good for cheaper? Yes, but the ambiance in the place makes up for the higher prices. A wonderful raw fish experience.
