SHU - Sushi House Unico - Bel Air
The service was not great. We went there after not being there in a very long time. We always go to Nobu or Katsuya. A crab leg roll took 35 minutes to come to our table. Everyone around us was getting their food when we had ordered the crab roll prior to them. Another roll came incorrectly. They were cool about taking a dish off the check that was not great at all. It was a salad that was over dressed and not very crisp. The hearts of palm salad. It just was not something we liked. Unfortunately I think possibly complaining about the salad might have been what made the service bad toward us since this was not our regular spot. That is a shame since we were spending $200. On dinner for 2 adults and a 12 year old without drinks. I think they would have made more of an effort. Because clearly we don’t mind spending money on a regular night out just grabbing some sushi and we live 5 min away. In any event for us its worth the drive to Nobu, Matsuhisa or Katsuya for great sushi, Japanese specials and Rolls. We would rather give our money to them. But that is just our opinion.
Service was awful and the food was mediocre. Too hot inside as well. Will not come back.
Food was good , but service is pretty slow and I had to ask a busboy to get our waitress so we can at least place basic orders.
Shu remains a superb dining experience. I have eaten there several times over a period of years and it never disappoints. Friendly, attentive and relaxed staff while still taking very good care of you. The black cod I had the other night was perfectly cooked.
Let’s just say my fiancé and I don’t go anywhere else for sushi. We are here once a week.
Really great creative sushi. Michelin Star type place but reasonably priced for the quality.
It is my #1 fav place to order amazing sushi.
I really love this place. My local go-to for some of the best sushi, etc in LA. Omakase is always spot on, and there are always some wonderful specials. I'm comfortable dropping in solo for a quick bite after work, or bringing a group of any size for a special dining experience.
We eat a lot of sushi and often. Last night’s meal was the absolute best sushi we have ever had start to finish. Every piece was absolutely delicious.
Our favorite family restaurant!
Great food. Great service. Great meeting! Yummy sushi. Nice presentation. Worth the drive up the hill to meet a buddy.
SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE. FOOD WAS GOOD. THEY NEED TO HIRE MORE WAITERS.
Shu is our go to restaurant in LA for any occasion. Love it!
Consistently good with fantastic Waite staff. A neighborhood gem.
Excellent food and service. Totally unmatched.
Our home for Thursday nights! The food is always excellent and fresh.
Our first time at the restaurant. The food and service were outstanding. Would highly recommend.
Our favorite la sushi restaurant. We go weekly with the teens as a family dinner. Everyone loves it. We also do special occasions here with extended family -birthdays, Mother’s Day, etc
We go to Shu frequently but last night's sushi was over-the-top fantastic! The best sushi bar ever!!!
Was great but really warm in there we were sweating throughout dinner
Rude waiter, never got our shishito peppers but were charged for them. Horrible service.
This is our favorite sushi place of all time. We travel a lot and have sushi wherever we go and while there are good spots, none of them compare to the quality and consistency of SHU! The staff is super accommodating to our every need. Highly recommended!!
Delicious food and our server was delightful. Food arrived a little slowly but it appeared that much of the restaurant was seated about the same time as we did. Nevertheless, the experience was wonderful a per usual!
Don't miss the special friend oysters with Yuzu, truffle and black sea salt. We ordered them twice.
All the menu items blend flavors so delicately. A real gourmet experience.
Expensive but great quality and staff
As usual SHU was great, always a little pricey, but the sushi is the best. If you have a 7PM reservation, you get your table at 7, I love that.
This is my favorite restaurant. The food is delicious and the service is friendly and helpful.
Great food and service.
Fresh delicious sushi
Perfect food and service.
Always a very fresh presentation with friendly servers. Gets crowded early in the day and reservations are a must but worth the effort. The freshest fish in town.
Consistently excellent food and customer service like nowhere else....love this place
Super noisy. Like hurts your ears noisy. Forget about talking across the table unless you’re used to shouting.
Fish is super fresh and delicious!
nice place, if a little pricey for what you get. i suppose that has to do with the fact that it's in Bel-Air, so the only option for sushi in that particular neck of the woods. service was attentive, food was good but not mind-blowing.
Shu is by far my favorite go to restaurants, always superb and the Waite staff is like family.
Service was very slow. My wife was done eating when my entree arrived. Tables that were seated after we ordered where served ahead of us.
Something was off this evening because our prior visit was perfect in every way.
Wonderful sushi restaurant. Food, service top notch. Manager Noriku is great!
Superb and the best wait staff imaginable, especially Chidori
I have been to so many sushi places all over the world I have to say I enjoyed this place to the max and it definitely made its mark. The food was AMAZING! Can't wait to go there again !
