This place was actually gross and I'm really sad we ever went there. It was really late and they were the only place open on a Sunday night. We walked in to find the filthiest fish tank and should have turned around immediately. The service was so strange. I asked for a tall beer... three times... and she brought me... More

We've been to this restaurant a couple times now,and we're impressed every time. The sushi is always fresh, imaginative and delicious and the service and comfort are top notch. Can't recommend this place enough. Fire Tiger Roll was a favorite of ours as is the Sweet Heart Roll and the a la carte sushi. Yumm!

No other Chinese cuisine in the area compares. Food is always fresh, hot, and delicious! I always get the General Tso's chicken with crab rangoons, and it never disappoints.

Try the Maine Lobster rolll! Wasabi with peppered tuna so awesome! Relaxing atmosphere. Excellent! Reservations beat especially during tourist season! Easy to find.

With their private rooms, Shinbashi does a great job handling large groups and keeping them separate from the rest of the always busy main dining room. Everyone in our group (most visiting for the first time) had a wonderful time and enjoyed their food.

Recommend to us by a local businessman, this place was so good we went two nights in a row. The food was amazing, the portions were huge (take home for lunch huge), The service was timely and friendly. We were a large group and enjoyed the private rooms. All around a new favourite.

The rice always tastes old, even when it's fresh. Maybe the frozen vegetables they use in it give it a funk? Yuck to me.
