Frequent diner, the food is always great and consistent.

However, they got rid of their valet parking, and it now takes at least 10-15 minutes to find a spot to park, which is so inconvenient, that this will be a negative for us going as frequently.

We just moved to the neighborhood and wanted to try out "SHINE" The service was spectacular- the hostess who seated us as well as the waiter were fantastic and welcoming. We had a table indoors but the wall opened up to the side walk so it was like being outside/ Great ambience and decor. Very light and airy. I had a great signature roll- spicy tuna/avocado/ cream cheese. It was beautifully presented and tasted great! My husband ordered the "morsels" chicken dish was delicious- perfectly cooked bite sized pieces of tender white meat chicken in a delicious, spicy sauce. The brown rice was cooked perfectly. The hot and sour soup was very good- with a slight lemon grass taste that made it fresh and different. The staff made us feel welcomed and we can't wait to visit again.

Our server went above and beyond!! We brought our 20 month old there and just to accommodate her she brought us more edamame and couldn't have been sweeter. The food was great as always, but they treated us very well.

Lovely atmosphere with comfortable tables widely spaced, and a relaxed, quite ambience. Friendly service really aiming to please. Delicious fresh food in large portions, nicely seasoned. Many vegetarian options for us. We really enjoyed it and plan to go back.

Didn't have sushi so can't comment on that. One of the dishes we ordered was mediocre at best, the other was interesting and tasty. Typical of Asian restaurants, a poor beer and wine selection.

We went here on a Sunday night. The restaurant was pretty quiet. One of my friends ordered sushi and there was a hair in it which kinda put a downer on the rest of the meal. Sushi was ok but have had better elsewhere. Entree portions were big.

Restaurant was CLOSED! They had a burst water pipe. It happens. However they never called. Open Table never contacted me. We had theater tickets and everywhere else we went was booked.
FAIL.

I went here for a date on a Wednesday nigh since my significant other is vegetarian it was one of the best places to go to for vegetarian options. I had the sushi and it was fresh and fantastically tasty. My date enjoyed her meal as well as the wine. The service was very attentive and polite from the greeter, server, to the help. The price is fair since it is a Japanese Restaurant. I would go back to this restaurant multiple times. Thank you for the wonderful first experience!

This place is definitely under-rated. It was an excellent find. The sushi and food was amazing. We really enjoyed the soft-shell crab. We also had two specialty rolls. Great place and I will definitely return!
