I found Shinbasi to be divine. I had been there a couple times for lunch but never for dinner. Dinner is completely uncrowded, and it's a great noise level for conversation. This is a beautiful facility, with very high ceilings and a wall of glass....More

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

This was a random selection based on a quick search and good reviews. It's not as 5 star as it looks in the pictures and lacks a bit of ambience but great service and great sushi and didn't break the bank. Will definitely go back.

We went on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. The food was excellent and the service was quick...but not too quick. We had the tuna, salmon, veggie futomaki, tempura and edamame. I am not a huge fish eater...the tuna was excellent. I was very happy...More

This restaurant is close to my office and I come here for lunch from time to time before it gets crowded. I always order the Chirashi which has been consistently good. The service has been quite impeccable too.

Lovely atmosphere, nice outdoor seating if desired. Pleasant staff. Good Pricing - but the food was only ok. Sushi tasted a little "fishy".
