    If a trip to Japan is inconvenient, hop over to Las Vegas and Shibuya. In many ways, this MGM legacy Japanese restaurant surpasses any native Japanese counterparts. If there were a signature dish (and you enjoy beef and foie gras), we strongly recommend the healthy portion of wagu short ribs (boneless, of course) topped with lovingly seared foie gras. Enjoy! For many, service sometimes counts as much as the stunning quality of the food. Shibuya excels on both counts.

    Watching these masters on their dais is a warmup to a great Japanese meal. The food was superbly presented and delicious. What would give this a five star rating, in my wife's mind, is to return a good udon soup/dish to the menu, where it once resided. For me, the hamachi nigiri sushi (aburi/seared-style) should be quickly grilled on a hibachi vice the often-used flame spray----but to be clear---this was a great meal.

    As our review name implies, we love sushi & Shibuya is one of the very best we have found. We make sure we visit every time we are in Las Vegas. The Shibuya Roll is our favorite. We order 3 or 4 rolls to share between 2 of us & that seems to be just the right amount for dinner. Service is fantastic.

    We went in excepting great food with good service, that was not the case. The Staff was not nice at all and bad. The waiter took 15 min to come to our table. He didn't not recommend anything and was not even giving us attention. The other waiter just dropped the food on the table roudly and walked away without saying what foos was it. Also, we ordered tea and he slammed the tea on the table and started pouring tea. Not worth the hype nor your money. There is better places in Vegas. Food was okey but the service just killed the dinner experice for us.

    The decor is something you would expect in a Casino Restaurant. Although the menu items are limited in selection, the food is exceptional! I can appreciate a smaller style menu with items that taste and are prepared excellently. Very impressive presentation and the service is excellent. I can only guess because it was in the middle of the week, the kitchen closed early and we were unable to keep ordering more selections of the sushi. Moderately priced for excellent quality of food.

    They're known for hibachi and that's why we made the reservation. We were seated near three hibachi tables (all empty) and asked to be moved w/no success. We ordered off the regular menu two entrees and were literally done w/dinner and on our way in 20 minutes--do they make their meals "for ants". Would maybe go back if they allowed us to do the hibachi thing like they advertise

    There were 4 of us for dinner. We were seated right away even though our party was not complete. Server was knowledgable regarding menu. The hamachi and ahi sashimi were so delicious and fresh. The yellowtail collar was yummy as well. We also enjoyed the grilled beef tenderloin, tempura shrimp and stir fried vegetables. Our son selected 2 very good sakes to complement our meal. Everything was wonderful. All of us would definitely go back.

    Shibuya was a wonderful food experience for a group of foodies who visited several other notable Vegas restaurants on our trip. We went with a chef's tasting group menu and our server was outstanding in guiding us through things. We gave a price point and they provided the table with selections, cooked and raw, that were all fantastic. The Hamachi Sashimi was an outstanding bite of food, and the wagyu tenderloin was wonderful, too. A very nice selection of sake in all price ranges as well.

    Excellent service, laid back, stylish atmosphere and quality food. Matt our waiter knew exactly how to manage our experience and we followed his recommendations. The standout of the meal was the fatty tuna belly sushi. The Cod was also outstanding. One suggestion - As beautiful as the decor is I think it is more enjoyable to sit in the front of the room, near the sushi bar or against the window - More lively atmosphere and 'action' than sitting in the rear of the room, which can be a little quiet.

    The restaurant specializes in cold and hot plates. If you are looking for sushi or tepanyaki, it is very good but very expensive compared to your home town location. The sake list is extensive. Tell the server what kind of wine you like and they will help you find the right sake. The tasting menu is a great way to find your favorite items. I have tried most of the cold plate and hot plates over the years and all are excellent.

    This is my fourth or fifth time here and it is always good. I tend to have them prepare a selection of "chef's choices" for my party, as I am afraid I may overlook items I would not select based on their descriptions. This has worked out really great. We had an interesting variety of foods and we loved every single one of them. Highly recommend.

    Shibuya Rocks! Food is outstanding. Extensive sake list from moderate to OMG. This is our go to place in Vegas. In fact will make a weekend trip just to go to Shibuya. The WAGYU SHORT RIB WITH FOIE GRAS is a MUST. The ribs are chopstick tender & can be "cut" with just chopsticks. And the foie gras is perfect everytime. Also on special last weekend was "Foie Gras Sushi", seared foie gras on a bed of crispy rice. Did that one twice. Also had Toro belly, & WAGYU AND FOIE GRAS GYOZA, both outstanding. Sushi bar & teppanyaki tables available, but we have always sat at the regular tables. As for "scenic view" the view of the promenade...well let's just say it's Vegas. Overall, can not recommend Shibuya enough!

    My boyfriend took me here for my birthday. It was no more expensive than any other sushi place I've been to. Plenty of food, including sashimi I know I haven't eaten before (I always forget what fish is which by the time I've gotten to it on the plate, LOL). We split the sashimi plate and the sushi plate. One outstanding item was the sake sampler. They really know their stuff! Although it's located on the main casino drag, the decor (painted wooden pieces from floor to ceiling) makes you feel like it's a separate restaurant. I have no complaints at all.

    I nice find if you're in the mood for sushi and staying at the MGM. A great Sake selection that's obviously overpriced, but you're at the MGM! Menu is very complete with just about anything you might be in the mood for, even a seaweed tasting that my daughter insisted we try. Don't be fooled by the "only one more 7:15 reservation" available line. At 7:15 there were a dozen empty tables. Figure on about $75.00 a person including some Sake.
