    We don't come often since we live in Santa Clarita but since it was my 71st birthday I had to bring my family to the best Sushi I've ever had. Just amazing food and service.

    I've been to this restaurant many times and, unfortunately, the service continues to get worse. Extremely slow and confused. Drinks arriving slow, or not at all - food arriving slow and without explanation. Either need more staffing, or better organization.

    The food is terrific, the welcoming and service not so much. No smile when you walk in the door, and the plates are never paced so that you are still sipping miso soup at a good pace but the tempura is dropped, anyway. Had to request a slow down, which was well-handled, but the server should know how to pace the dishes. No thank you on the way out - felt rushed and at this price point, not a comfy Saturday night.

    When you come to Shu, you must not be in any hurry. It took a very long time to get all of our food. The food itself was very good, it just took time to get delivered to us and it was brought piece meal. Some of us were finished before others received their food.

    SHU Sushi Unico had highs and lows. Truffle pasta shone, but birthday celebration oversight and reservation issues were disappointments. Consider alternatives; small venue gets crowded.

    A gem in the area if you're looking for high quality sushi and sashimi. The chefs know what they're doing. On the pricier side if you care only about standard rolls. But totally worth it if you enjoy special pieces like new Zealand salmon with truffle, fresh Japanese scallops with caviar etc.

    My favorite sushi spot in LA. Tucked in Bel Air. Very safe. Free parking in front and back. I live close by, super convenient! Amazing sushi. Melts in your mouth like butter. Met my friend here last night for her first time (my 350754 time!) at 7pm, and she loved it! The restaurant was not too busy. Honestly I was afraid it would be crowded and noisy last night as it usually is Monday night, but it was perfect. We were not disappointed. Service always outstanding! Servers are very friendly. Relatively quick service. Before we ordered food, the asked for our drink orders. Since it was chilly, and I was feeling a bit under the weather I ordered a hot chamomile tea. My friend ordered an earl grey. And they brought us some salted edamame to start. For food we ordered a few different things: started with risotto appetizers (crispy rice with the spicy tuna on top) - it is always delicious! (Not too spicy!). also ordered popcorn shrimp - (buttery and delicious, especially love the sauce they add on top!), my all time fave yellowtail scallion cut roll (so freaking good!) always recommend (hand roll also great!), and we did not order desert because we both got full, and left very satisfied. Definitely recommend SHU!!

    I love SHU (customer since 2006-2007); however, the new set-up in the dining room is extremely disappointing. While I usually prefer the sushi bar, my friend wanted to sit at a regular table. We got seated at a table which was attached to another one and was only separated by a clear plastic screen. We asked for another one for more privacy but the request wasn’t accommodated even though there was one available. During our dinner, 3 separate parties were next to us. After the first one finished their dinner, another party was seated. They didn’t like the set-up and asked to be seated somewhere else (don’t blame them). Got seated at the sushi bar. Then, another party was seated. Not a pleasant experience at all. When you spend over $300 (not including gratuity or drinks) on a dinner for 2, you should at least get a regular table instead of a tiny communal one and be able to have some privacy and comfort. I hope they make changes to the current set-up.

    Very disappointed in our experience. Service was terrible/slow/disinterested and took an unreasonable amount of time to get an order for food and drinks in after the initial checkin by our server. It was busy but not so busy that they couldn’t stop at our table as they checked on everybody else. Food is solid but wasn’t special. Willing to try again at the sushi bar for a better experience, especially since it’s such a convenient location for us, but this was a miss for initial impression.
