The food is excellent and the portions are big. Very good value! I’ve had their sushi rolls, a few of their Asian entrees, sangria, tasty dumplings and dessert too. All good. When the menu indicates “spicy” it is indeed! This is one of our favorites👍👍

Always a great meal at Shi! It was a quiet night on a Tuesday, probably a busy vibe on the weekends. Beautiful views of the city, and great service.

We just moved to the area and decided to try out SHI. It was okay-not in a bad way!
The scene was pretty cool- very “loung-y” which we liked. The service was very good! The only reason I say “okay” is because it wasn’t the best sushi we’ve had. We will probably be back, and maybe try something different.

The appetizers were nice but we soon realized that the sushi (which we had ordered as entrees) were better as appetizers. The food otherwise was good and the ambience was nice. The only major drawback was our Thai server, Ben. Ben was very impatient with us and constantly glared at us whenever we requested an item from the menu. She was curt and did not check on us throughout our meal. Ben’s service was in sharp contrast with her colleagues who were more professional and attentive. If you visit Shi, be sure to let the restaurant know that you would prefer not to be served by Ben.

Food is great. The A/C needs to be set lower. This is the second time recently it was too warm and had to ask for the A/C to be turned on.
The sun shines very brightly on some seats that can’t be blocked by shades.
Service was excellent as always.

The place was amazing. The food was good, the drinks were good, and the atmosphere is welcoming. The only suggestion I have is, I would trim down the hedges at the back patio so you could see the city skyline.

I love going to Shi with my family. We have gone at least 5 times since we discovered it and it is definitely our go to restaurant. The staff and service is amazing. The wait time for food is very short and quick. And best of all the food is AMAZING at even more amazing prices. Would recommend this to everyone. Also on the piers so perfect spot for a walk with skyline views

We had a great dining experience at SHI. We were out with our friends that were in from Seattle. It’s as a greT place to have drink, dine and catch up. We’ll definitely be back again.

I have NEVER had a bad experience with food or service here. I surprised my mom with dinner at her favorite spot and she was so happy. It was also an early Father’s Day dinner for my dad. She uses a wheelchair and our waitress was not only great with menu suggestions but very sensitive to my mom’s needs by not bringing attention to her needs. Thank you!

We sat at a 2top in the garden. Severs dirty dish buckets were too close and noisy.They should be placed in the rear of the yard away from customers. Will need to walk a little extra yes or don't place a 2 top near loud and dirty plates etc. employees really don't care the amount of noise they make.

It was a Thursday late lunch with mom after I had a meeting in Queens. The place was very noisy but it’s understandable since it was graduation day after all. Food was good so was service.

Been to this restaurant many manyyyyy times. Never disappoints! I actually got a new dish this time. Went for the Vietnamese noodles with shrimp. It was excellent! Their steamed pork dumplings are the best I’ve ever had! My husband and I get an order each when we go and there are 6 to an order. The price is right, the drinks are great and food is delicious!

Um not at all what you might think it will be. We had a reservation for 6 on a Saturday night. The 2of us got there a couple minutes earlier while the other ones where on their way. The hostess told us she cannot sit us unless all of us are there. Then she went to ask the manager and came back and sat us... then she told us we have to leave in 2 hrs? Like WTF, we just got in and they already want to see us out?! Not good at all.
Needless to say the place is filthy and the customers that go there are the best “white trash”. Gross. Very deceiving place. Never going back.

Oh and the “views” they advertise... they suck!!! The window are so dirty, try to see anything through them.

I celebrated my 30th birthday here for a large group (30 people) and the night went without flaw! The manager, Chen, was super friendly and accommodating! She made sure that there were no issues with my reservation and that seating was comfortable. Everyone loved the food, drinks, and ambiance. Also, prices were extremely fair! Thank you for a wonderful night!

When the waitress serving the appetizers, her sleeves was on my soup multiple times, I called her attention and she said sorry and left. I was expecting she will say “ oh sorry about that, let me replace your soup.” I gave 4 star for service because I left my pocket book hanging at my chair and the waiter returned it to me. That was a kind thing to do. Thank you again.

Annoyed by the waitress that look miserable working there, ask me why I only left 10% Gratuity, while i was going to the bathroom, She was surpise we ask for 5 meals on a table for 3, We actually wanted to try eveyrthing.... This place was really good, its was empty on a sunday at 5:00 pm, Furniture looks old, Food was ok, the Sushi was nothing out of this world, tasted like refrigerated Sushi.... Alot of new restaurants in Long Island city, I think Shi had their moment....

I have been two SHI many times over the years. Always would say that they had a great menu, everything I’ve ever had was top notch, drinks were always good, atmosphere was always beautiful, and that they never rushed you out the door.

This time, I was rushed through the meal, the drinks were horrible, the server was rude, the server was not accommodating, the manager was rude, the food wasn’t as expected, the reservation time was conflicting to what was agreed upon.

Overall didn’t feel welcome and probably won’t come back. It’s a shame because I did look forward to attending this restaurant. Guess another will take its place.
