Tons of great options on the menu, not just sushi (but the sushi is great)! Great drink options too! Definitely go for the black rice - so yummy!

Met some friends for lunch on a Friday. Place was packed and between the bad acoustics, overly loud music and people's chatter it was very hard to carry on a conversation.

Having said that, the food and drinks were very good as was the service. We all sampled the firecracker shrimp, calamari, crab cakes, spring rolls and stuffed jalapanos. All were very good, I do take a bit of exception to the serving size on the crab cakes, only two and they were about silver dollar sized. Wine and sparkling wine both good.

Menu is extensive with plenty of variety if traditional sushi is not really your thing.

While I would go back, the noise factor took away from the experience. The overly loud music is certainly something the restaurant could control.

Took a date to Shakou and had a wonderful experience. Menu is broad, appealing to all palates, yet targeted for a great sushi experience.

Our appetizer came decorated with a heart realizing we were on a date - wonderful touch!

Our server was attentive, friendly, and very helpful.

Beautifully decorated - vibrant! Did not get a change to sit on the rooftop due to weather.
