Place was beautiful, view was beautiful, food was decently priced. My take is that the restaurant Needs fresh appetizers, seemed to me to be frozen.

They could have done better for the birthday song my husband took me for my birthday and when the waiter brought out the cake it was lack luster he was very monotone it ruined the whole point of the cake surprise

This place is amazing, from the drinks to the food. We went for my sister's birthday and they did an amazing job by creating a happy occasion for her. She was happy and so were we. 😁

I have been to SHI several times and it never disappoints. The food, drinks and service are top of the line. Also, incredibly affordable! A great place to take a picky eater as there are so many food options to choose from. Will be there again as this has become a go-to of mine whenever I visit the LIC area.

My boyfriend and I showed up 10 minutes before our 9:30 PM reservation. I went up to the hostess stand where after 3 tries I finally was able to give the hostess my name over the loud music int he lobby. She kindly told us that our table would not be ready until 9:30 PM which was absolutely fine and understandable. She told us to sit on a couch in the lobby while we waited. 9:30 PM came and went, then 9:35, the. 9:40. The hostess came up to us to apologize for the inconvenience and asked us if we would like something to drink while we waited. We politely accepted and she handed us a menu and said “you can just go up to the bar and order and pay there.” I was certainly not expecting a free drink but it seemed like that was being offered to us. We decided to not go to the bar and continued to wait. By 9:50 my boyfriend asked the hostess when we would be seated. She continued to say our table was not ready so we asked for a specific time. She immediately became flustered and said she would seat us immediately. She finally walked us to the back of the restaurant where we counted 6 open tables. She sat the 2 of us at a 4 top. I sat down first and was fine. My boyfriend proceeded to sit down and stood back up to show his pants soaking wet and covered in rice. The bus gentleman quickly ran over to apologize and cleaned the chair. At that point we have had it. We went back up to the hostess stand to explain why we were leaving. In an angry tone the hostess said the chair was wet because it was just cleaned to which we asked “do you clean your chairs with rice?” The manager was also at the stand and did not say a word to us. I watched as she marked our table from occupied to open and simply walked away. I usually am very understanding when restaurants are busy over booked but this was just insulting and disgraceful. On top of all of this the returner did not check for proof of vaccination and was very crowded given the current CDC guidelines.

Great service and food. The view from the window seating area wasn’t as previously described - no real water view. The music inside was annoying and impossible to have a good conversation. We moved to an outside table which was nice. Would definitely return.

We specifically requested a window table for a special occasion when we made the reservation. When we arrived we were told the window tables were being saved for reservations...which we had. Our server was very lovely and helpful. The food was not as good as it was the last time we were there, the quality left a bit to be desired. The fried cauliflower was overdone and mostly bread. There were several large groups that were incredibly loud and there were young girls in the bathroom who had clearly been overserved, they were blackout drunk. I wanted to bring my sister here because I had a great experience last time I came to Shi, but she was disappointed and I was too. 👎🏼
