Excellent find since this
Excellent find since this was our first visit. The food, service, atmosphere was very good. Shinto has specials too which we like. The sushi bar was very good, and the bar has a full selection wines, beers, & spirits.

Food very good, service variable
We've been to Shinto several times now. The food is always very good with ample portion sizes. The dining experience however drifts when they are significantly busy. Our table was seated in an order where the chef was delayed with other tables (understandable), but when he got to us he found that our waiter had not prepared the grill so he could start immediately causing another delay while the grill heated up.

Everything was good. The sushi
Everything was good. The sushi was great. The only complaint
was that the waiter clearly was rushing us so they
Could close. They were closing at 9pm which is fine but they
Should have refused to book a late RSVP.

Had a great time at Shinto's
Had a great time at Shinto's our server Melissa is the best along with Chris the chef who has his own flair for cooking and doing tricks on the grill. This is the best value for your money in Naperville on a Tuesday night!!

Shinto - a good value
I believe you get a good value for your money at Shinto. This time we had a party of 6 celebrating 3 birthdays. For a Sunday early evening, this place was a bit empty to start off with and we felt a little isolated, but the crowd eventually picked up with lively chatter. Our waitress was very attentive and our chef Chris was right on the money being professional and re-cleaning the grill before starting which was appreciated given that there's always fried rice bits or something else flying around from other animated chefs. Our meals were cooked perfectly given that our steaks ranged from medium to well and the shrimps seared to perfection. Three complimentary birthday cookie / ice creams capped the evening well.

Always great food
Some of the best sushi and hibatchi around. You won't be dissapointed.

We had a great Mothers Day celebration at Shinto on Sunday!

Thank you for the great meal and wonderful service. Service was perfect and food was wonderful. Well worth the money.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Three of us shred the platter for 2 and it was more than enough. Nice variety and choices. Menu can be a little overwhelming, so going a few times should solve that. LOL Looking forward to the next time.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have eaten here several times and usually a great time. This occassion it took about an hour after we were seated for the hibachi chef to come to our table. I am not sure if they were under staffed at the time but made for a very long meal. The food was excellent and the chef put on a good show with the cooking once he arrived at our table.

Shinto is a fun place to take
Shinto is a fun place to take our kids for hibachi! They love the entertainment, and the food is great! We also like to come with a group of adults for a night out. Highly recommend Shinto.

Great Place to eat
I've gone to Shinto multiple times, service is always good. While the prices are a little high it is well worth it. At the Hibachi you get a nice show while they cook your food in front of you!!! It is kid friendly as well, my 2 year old son loves going there.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Shinto has been a favorite of ours for quite some time. The rolls are creative and tasty and our servers are always so knowledgeable. They are busy and it's always energetic in here and the bar adds a little bit of flare to an otherwise hidden strip mall sushi house. Love it!

Hibachi style or served dinners
We've been to Shinto's several times for Hibachi which is always fun because the pace of the meal keeps you eating constantly. This time, we sat on the other side which is the regular tables with servers and you can order sushi and Teriyaki off the menu. This experience was just as enjoyable and maybe a bit quieter especially when there's just the 2 of us. In any case, good food and great sushi choices made our experience enjoyable. The sushi rolls were coming out of the kitchen freshly made and full of flavor. On days when there's specials like 1/2 price appetizers the kitchen it rock'n and even though there may be a little wait - the chefs are in full swing and it's always fun to see just how much sushi other tables are consuming!
6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place
We go to Shinto a couple times a month. The food quality is always high and the hibachi chefs are all legit. Great scallops and the steak upgrade to chateaubriand is well worth the $10 charge.

No More Domo!
My girlfriend and I love Hibachi and Sushi. We were avid Domo 77 fans. However, the hefty price tag wasn't to be desired. We came across a coupon in the mail, and decided to try Shinto. Best decision ever. We were seated right away. Prices were very reasonable, and the food was delicious! So many great deals (coupons, text promotions, Hibachi Tuesday).

Hidden Gem on Rte 59
The food and service was excellent. Ask for Kevin to be your server.

Hibachi does not disappoint
Shinto's did a great job of accomodating our group at the Hibachi table as well as a quiet table later in the evening for drinks. Food was tasty as always with most of us ordering the steak and shrimp and one member of our party ordering the scallops which were jumbo and succulent. Drinks are a bit pricey but service was spot on and friendly. Overall, it was a very good experience and we'd all go back.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I find the food and the service very consistent, which is a very strong determining factor as whether I will return or not.
The sushi is always fresh and the flavor combinations unique, I love being able to decipher between the rolls that are ordered.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Sushi was amazing as usual. This time I was especially impressed with the service because the
waitress kindly allowed my mom to sit at the table before I arrived. I was an hour late due to Metra train delays and during that
time the waitress ensured my mom was comfortable and enjoyed her martini to start. Once I finally arrived she served me immediately
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food. Very congenial
Excellent food. Very congenial and pleasant waiter and chef. All in all, a lot of fun.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always great food
I frequent Shinto and it is the best hibachi spot by far. The seafood is always excellent and the prices are fair compared to other hibachi places around. The chefs seem to always have new tricks and are always friendly. I love this place, iv been here at least 15 times.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great find in Naperville!
My partner and I enjoyed ourselves last Friday and will definitely be back. Great service from both our waitress as well as our chef.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great, entertaining evening
The food is great, the cooks are very personable and entertaining, but know that you won't be able to have a lot of conversation as there is a lot of noise when they're busy. We've only done the hibachi side because we love the fresh cooked food, but the tables are very long and it's difficult to hear the people at the other end of the table. Remember, the fried rice is extra though they don't tell you that when they ask if you want it with your hibachi meal.

Good place to meet
Enjoyed meeting with friends over good food served a little too slow and at time the drink glasses were empty

Sushi and our Server
Both Sushi and our server Kim were fantastic! We are avid sushi eaters and, on this day Shinto was great! The service provided by Kim was excellent. We will definitely return, and look forward to another great experience!

Girls night out destination
We dined here for our monthly girls night out plus we were celebrating two birthdays. The service was great, the food was delicious and the birthday desserts were amazing
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The hibatchi tables are a lot of fun for the family and the kids really enjoy the show. The food is very good. The fried rice is excellent.
8/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
We went for my daughter's and husband's birthdays We went early on Tuesday and had the discounted hibachi and 1/2 price sushi. Everything was excellent.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Brought my tween and teens there and had a great time at the hibachi table. Food is great, show is great. Cons are that it's a little loud in there and you want to try to sit with your back to the window. The sun hits it at dinner time and can be annoying.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was amazing as always. Service was awesome. Very nice and prompt with our drinks and food. I would definitely go again. and I would recommend this place to anyone.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
A yummy experience
We did the Hibachi dinner, they also are known for their sushi. When I go to these places I usually come home hungry. The portions are small and sometimes not very flavorful. At Shinto you had more than enough, the menu has a lot of selections and prices are fare. I wish I knew the chefs name because he was wonderful, very personable and friendly.
It proves how good a restaurant is when it is packed in the middle of the week. This is definitely a must try!
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is our second visit and overall it did not disappoint. We were early and seated straight away. The waiter came over and took our drink orders we were waiting for 2 more and said would be there shortly. He came back with our drinks asked did we know how long it still wasn't our reservation time. Realize he has to co-ordinate things with the chef. Another party of 2 joined our table. The waiter came over once again asked how long our party would be. I felt a little annoyed over this and felt he could have handled himself a little better. The rest of the dinner lived up to expectations the chef was excellent interacted with everyone without imposing himself. The food was prepared and cooked beautifully would definitely dine here again.

Best sushi in the western suburbs
The sushi is great, the atmosphere is great but bat service is inconsistent. It takes forever to get a drink and if you order a specialty cocktail they never look or taste the say way twice.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was fantastic, the talented chef made the evening fun, definitely meant to bring your friends and family!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been here several times. Everything I have ever had is great. Hibachi is really good too!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best habachi style! Meat was awesome!!! Chef, Chris was amazing!
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sushi date night.
Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful. Food was came out in a timely manner. We will return
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I come here all the time with my family and friends to have sushi. Best prices with great quality! Monday half price happy hour is the best! We always get the lil delicious, jekyll and hyde, mexican roll, black widow, spider, fire and ice, and some gyoza or shumai as an appetizer.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I had never been here before. It was her birthday and she wanted sushi. I am not a sushi person, but I do like the hibachi. It was a great combo and the food was outstanding. I would definately recommend this to anyone.

Despite reservations made us wait
Booked through Open Table the day before just because we had 7 people in our group, more than half of which were out of state and very hungry. One person in our party was lost and instead of offering us a table, drink, or appetizer told us to wait until the lost person got there.we thought that was somewhat rude considering such a big party was a big ticket for them and they couldn't be more hospitable. After 30 minutes of standing in a virtually empty restaurant at noon, our lost person showed up and we were seated. Chris our Hibachi chef was great, cooked well and had a great sense of humor. Ben, our waiter was attentive but distracted almost as if they were short staffed. The food was cooked well, the deep fried sushi was a special twist
