A word from Shuhei
Japanese cuisine is easily one of the healthiest on Earth, with its concentration on fresh fish, seafood, meats, vegetables and rice. The zesty sauces and delicate flavors of fresh foods compliment each other beautifully, and the methods of presentation turn even simple meals into ornate, eye-pleasing events. The Japanese love of beauty and simplicity turns slices of fish into miniature artworks, turning the platter into paint palettes for the artistry of the chef. Here, at Shuhei, traditional ways of creating dishes and preparing foods are far from lost. Authentic, high-quality and extensive Japanese fare is the highlight of the restaurant complete with affordable prices, relaxing atmosphere, kimono-clad waitresses who go the extra mile to make you smile and "the best sushi this side of Tokyo" according to ZAGAT Survey 2008!

Diner Reviews
  • "This was not our first time at Shuhei but every visit is notable. Our dinner was prepared to perfection and served wonderfully. Our waitress, Chi, was wonderful and made us feel like a friend. I highly recommend Shuhei for wonderful food (their sushi is the absolute best) and perfect service."

  • "Shuhei has been around for many years, always with the same very high quality food standards and great ambient. Really a must if you like sushi and sashimi!"

  • "I have been dining at Shuhei for years and can say that Hiroshi still has the same commitment to excellence in food taste, quality of service and experience. So many restaurants over time lose that commitment. Not Hiroshi or Shuhei. Even though the menu hasn't changed much over the years, everything is still impeccably done. You know what you are going to get when you dine at Shuhei, first class quality food, whether it is sushi or the unbelievably good fried oysters, or a grilled meat or fish, or even just damn good miso soup. Everything is done with an attention to detail. the food is of the highest quality. A great all-around Japanese restaurant."

  • "Our party of 4 had a great time at Shuhei. The other couple had been there before, but this was our first time, and it did not disappoint. Our server was attentive and fun. The food was fantastic. Among the 4 of us, we had appetizers (Gyoza), a seafood entrée (Scampi Bean), Sushi Okamase, and assorted sushi. All was delicious. We also enjoyed sake and wine. The noise level was pretty low, except probably from us. We will definitely return."

  • "Best sushi but really a fabulous kitchen best kitchen period for those non sushi diners too. Everything is made to perfection and though I am a huge sushi lover I often get tempted by scamppi bean dish, lamb chop, best tempura and his apps. Ribs!!! Beef negamki or dumplings or frog legs. This is one of best kitchens in city bar none. "

  • "Restaurant is tucked away behind an office building on Chagrin Blvd. but has been discovered by many... even with a reservation we waited 10-15 minutes in the very small, packed & cold waiting area. Restaurant doesn't have the best ambiance but makes up for it with the food. Salmon nigiri was so fresh and delicious! Other rolls were just as good. Good wine by the glass options. We will definitely be back!"

  • "We made reservations for Valentines day. We were seated and waited quite a while for our dinner, which is somewhat understandable for such a busy night and for food that is made to order. Right when we couldn't take it anymore and were about to get upset, our waitress came out with our amazing sushi. Wow!! It was well worth the wait and will definitely be back again and again. Miami heat and firecracker are the rolls that I ordered and I was thoroughly impressed. Definitely recommend!!"

  • "It was V Day, so make the necessary commentary. We had a 5:30 res, which is when they open. We ended up getting seated in the "Club Room", which from my perspective is fancy terminology for "not the main dining area". Three ladies covered the room as a team. As the room filled, service took a turn for the worse. My tea was cold, or not refilled, and to my dismay, the food order was not 100% correct. We decided to chalk it up to Holiday non-preparedness and finished dinner and left. I was disappointed only becuase I know what kind of high level these folks can operate and it was just not there this time around. The place was full as to be expected on V Day, I hope the main dining room patrons got a taste of the high life. Till next time.."

  • "Shuhei has been a constant and consistant winner for those who like Japanese cuisine. Do not expect a trendy here today and gone tomorrow type of dining spot but a fixture for fine Japanese dining for many years. That being said they have refreshed the interior and serve excellent quality sushi, lovely ramen and a menu that offers many choices keeps us coming back often."

  • "I chose this sushi restaurant because of the rating. What a disappointment. First of all the sushi is below average and the menu does not read well. The restaurant decor is tired. Even though many people are standing around, the service is very poor. The ambiance is very boring. No music, no greeting or exchange with servers or sushi chefs. To top it off, the prices are high. WIll not go back."

  • "This was our second visit to Shuhei. It was better the second time and we loved the first time we went. Was a busy friday night and the staff was friendly and accomodating. Our server explained everything in detail and she was very nice. It is nice to go to a restaurant where everything is not a la carte. Food was well priced and not overcooked ( I had tempura chicken and my wife had the fish on skewers(can't spell the Japanese name for it) and daughter had the salmon. Cooked just right and all had a good time. We had a sake flight for drinks and all had a good time."
