Another great time!
Shi is one of my fave restaurants! The view of the city alone is worth coming here! My husband brought me here for mothers day we brought our 3 month old and it was great! We came here alot before we had the baby and were happy that Shi was able to accomodate. They only have booster seats (really cute ones) so we had to keep our baby in his infant carseat on a chair which was fine. We had the bacon wrapped shrimp, crab ragoons and lychee calamari all were delicious! The medusa roll was great if u like spicy! The pineapple fried rice is the best I have ever tried anywhere else!

Early supper with our of town guest
This place is great for getting a Manhattan ambience without leaving Queens. We were there very early on a Sunday night and it was raining so we couldn't enjoy the great East River view. The food fresh and well prepared but the presentation lacked creativity. The plates seemed to be too big for the tables, but aside from tht we enjoyed our meal overall.

This is the second time my husband and I ate at SHI. We enjoyed it just as much as we did the first time. This time we brought our friends with us and they were very impressed with the food, ambience and the service. We would all definitely go back again.

Hidden Gem in Long Island City
I usually go to the city for a special occasion dinner outing, but this time I wanted to stay local considering my husband gets out of work late in Queens. It was a little confusing to get to but I got there and it was worth it! Great ambiance, good food and great crowd. The bacon wrapped shrimp was a disappointment but the spicy basil chicken and the the steak cubes were divine! The drinks were also delicious- especially the Red Shi! After dinner we took a little stroll out back to the riverfront and got to see the bustling FDR and beautiful views of the Empire State building. I would definitely come back here again!

It was a stormy Friday night but it didn't stop us from celebrating my Husband's 50th Birthday. We were a group of 17 people. We would thought the food would take forever but the service was fast. The Food and presentation was Great. The price was Moderate. The place is not that Big so I would suggest making reservations. The Music choices after 9 pm was good too. We decided to move to the Bar after dinner to enjoy a little more of the place. We will defnitely be back !!!!

Easy to do vegetarian here
The sake infused fish with Bok choi was wonderful and clean. The string bean dish was really lovely , the lettuce wraps too. This time the lettuce was a little too wilted rather than crisp inner leaves.

Last Saturday night I went to SHI for the first time and loved it. Yet I was running late for my dinner reservations they worked with me and made it a pleasurable experience for my quest and I. I love Thai, Japanese, Pan-Asian food, the scenery was magnificent, perfect view of the the Empire State building and the water. The music was great and lively, there was also an outdoor seating/dinning available for smaller parties of four. I had a great time and will be visiting again, definitely a hot spot in Long Island City.

Happy Birthday Mom!!
I celebrated my mom's 70th birthday and her favorite food is Thai. My boyfriend has never tried Thai food so it was a first time experience for him. From opening the front door to our seating, the host was so friendly. We were lucky to have a great waitress named Mama. She was great, and suggested many items on the menu that we would like. She described what was in our order (eg. veggies, hot, spicy, type of noodles) so that made it even better cause we knew what we were eating,
I would recommend this place to everyone. The view of Manhattan is stunning. Honestly you feel like your some where else!!

NYC in LIC
Celebrating my birthday was a pleasure at SHI. With many food choices.....all delicious, it was a great experience. Bacon
Wrapped shrimp, cold sesame noodles, fried wontons were shared by our group. Shrimp and mango chicken was delicious.
Realizing that my family was celebrating my birthday our waiter took back my dessert and found a candle to light. The skyline view
Is amazing as well. Stay in Queens for a perfect night out.

Right on the water, a view of the empire state building and midtown Manhattan ftom every table, always full and energenic, with an amazing staff! Food is always delicious with generous portions and most important, never late. I love the atmosphere and consistentcey of Shi more then anything, I have been going here for 5 years and each time I always have a great expiernce! I always recommend it to my friends for any occasion, from a first date, out to dinner before hitting a night out or even birthday parties, its always a great time at Shi lic

great time at shi
other than my waitress being to busy at times, the over all experience was excellent.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great until the check
Went to celebrate two birthdays. Appetizers (dumplings, calamari, shrimp wrapped in bacon) and main courses (pork chops, basil shrimp) were terrific. Sushi was very fresh. View is fantastic. However, there was a mistake on the bill that the waiter refused to correct. Should have gone to the manager. Great night ends on sour note.

Amazing as usual
I have been here many time but the first was with my cousin from Belgium 2 1/2 yrs ago. He came to visit again and the first thing he said was he wanted to come back here for dinner. Food and wine and service was great. We had a minor snafu with the pkg situation but that was taken care of by management. I <3 SHI!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a good time
SHI has a beautiful view and all the food was amazing. We were a large group and we shared all the plates and appetizers . The price was reasonable . After dinner we stayed at bar area until 2 am and had many drinks and were shocked to see the prices and how cheap it was . We had a good time and the music was good not so great but it was still fun .

Good Food, Great View, Date Night!
Really nice place for a date. Food was good, Bar Staff was friendly, nice lounge bar scene gets a fun crowd. Seating outside is very nice right by the water. Walk along the back after dinner for a great view of the city.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Shi was great, and it was reasonably priced. However, the service was less then desirable. It was busy and my server was hard to track down.

Birthday Dinner 8/20/13
I was looking for a nice place to celebrate my significant other's birthday, and it was definitely a success. Everyone who attended the birthday dinner, 7 people in total, really enjoyed the food and the service. We sat outside in the yard seating area, where you could get a glimpse of the beautiful city view. It was an overall memorable experience and would definitely recommend to others. It seems more like a first-date/ Anniversary type of place, but definitely good for a nice dinner as well. Not too expensive and definitely affordable.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I celebrated my birthday here. The food was excellent the staff was so attentive. But the view made my night.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious and Convenient
After moving all weekend into Long Island City, Shi was the perfect restaurant to celebrate! The restaurant was at the bottom of our new apartment complex-very convenient. In addition, the sushi was impeccable, especially the Gantry and Eel/Avacado rolls. We will definitely go back in the future!!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was well-portioned and great. The service was quick, friendly, and engaging, so they never missed a beat when it came to the needs of the customers. The location right near the bridge is what this restaurant thrives on, because it's just simply beautiful. Definitely a great place to go for a romantic date with your significant other.

Been here many times and never disappoints..Food, atmosphere all top notch..Mama is the best!

Culinary Gem + Spectacular View
Viewing the NYC skyline is the perfect setting for this LIC gem. The seafood and meats are always the freshest, perfectly cooked and seasoned. And the creative cocktails are absolutely delicous. I always receive excellent service here. On my last visit (9/2), had exceptional service. I have dined here many times and will continue to.

9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall, everything was great. The food was delicious, our waiter was very kind & funny, and very fairly priced. The downfall was the receptionist when you check in to be seated who complained that we didn't reserve for 9 people only 6
He gave kind of an additude but then seated us. But this place is great for birthdays & that sort
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in the mood for Thai
We were in the mood for Thai food. We could have gone to a local take out but for the prices of a plate at SHI and the ambiance, it is worth going over there! I love this place. The staff is wonderful. When we arrived, I asked for Mama to be our waitress cause she left us with the best impression the last time. We were seated very quickly and here came Mama happy as ever remembering our last visit! I would recommend SHI to anyone with no hestiation!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The decor and location were lovely particularly with the sunset view. The service was friendly. The price and portions were satisfactory and the dishes we chose were attractively presented. Most of the food was unique and delicious . I would recommend trying it.

Great food, service needs improveme
The food was great there, the only thing I didn't like is, every Asian place I've been to, if I asked a slight modification, the place has been able to accommodate it. This place did not (I don't feel like going into details). Water took forever to fill up and once I ordered my drinks, I waited a good 10-15 minutes before the drinks came and the waitress to order the food. The staff barely spoke English which I hate at any venue. I think it was just an off-night, I've been there a few times and I've had similar experiences but this just seemed like an off night for them which isn't an excuse though. I'd still go back. The front lady is HOT!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was amazing as always!! Everyone from our group of 11 was beyond satisfied. It is known that this is the best sushi in town! Frank, our server, was amazing as always!! Highly recommend SHI. You will be impressed!!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have eaten at Shi many times. The food is consistent and the service is quick. Sometimes, however, they are very aggressive about taking your order. The vibe is great but it gets very loud.

Went hear on a Friday night...wow! I had requested a seat near the window and upon arrival the host brought us to a nice table overlooking the manhattan skyline. Menu has a lot of choices, and the services is excellent! Price is very decent for the neighborhood, overall amazing! Definitely coming back.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always great food !
Our experience at Shi's was even better than our many other visits in the past. We had a reservation but got caught in traffic. We called to say we'd be late and when we arrived over an hour late the maitre'd was so accommodating and honored the reservation. The food & service was excellent, as always. This is our very favorite restaurant in Long Island City and we dine here every time we visit from Boston.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good, food was great and service was fantastic. Would definitely go back !
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved the atmosphere, food, and the cool mixture of people. Would return with my lovely lady!

Amazing place. The setting and the food was just spectacular. I would definitely recommend this place to others. Beautiful atmosphere!!! :)
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
The ambience is absolutely breathtaking. Such a romantic restaurant especially with the window view of manhattan as you dine.
The service was superb, as well. Patient and kind waiters attended to our needs.
The only unpleasing experience was from the food. I ordered 2 specialty rolls and chilean sea bass. The sea bass was amazing. Very tender piece of sea that melts in your mouth. But the sushi we ordered were very unsatisfactory. The portion was so small and the taste had nothing special or particular about it. It seriously was on par with the supermarket take home spicy tuna or eel roll. Other than that the overall experience was great.
