Delicious! Showed me there's far more to sushi than the rainbow rolls I get in Jersey. Sashimi smooth as silk due to being extremely fresh and high quality cuts of fish. And superb cooked food too. We ordered many dishes and every last one was...More

Some look to be wowed but smart dinners look for high quality ingredients not obscured for the sake of novelty. Shinbashi delivers. The service is everything one would want. The menu selection complete. Enjoy and return

They were really kind to us. They served a very good meal. You can sit at the bar and watch how they prepare the sushies. Especially matcha tiramisu was amazing.

This was the ultimate Japanese food! After 35 years of experiencing the Japanese kitchen, this was the best ever! The location and the atmosphere is maybe not the best, but the food is! All newyorkers and tourist try this restaurant!

Went here for lunch with some friends and could barely hear over the resounding noise of the restaurant. The vaulted ceilings only add to this problem. The food was good, but not outstanding, and the sushi was adequate, but expensive. The service left a lot...More

Shinbashi is not a fancy restaurant, and at first glance, their main dining area appears to be very plain. However, we were pleasantly surprised with their sake selection and variety of entrees. From nigiri sushi and specialty rolls, to tempura and soba, to hot pot...More
