Sushi
Nestled in the canyons of Bel Air, SHU is a dining experience like no other - a fusion of Japanese, Italian and Latin flavors and influences. The menu features traditional dishes as well as signature offerings, inspired by Giacomino Drago’s love of blending Japanese, Italian and Latin cuisines. SHU’s environment is well-suited to singles, couples and families. The bar seats up to ten people and there is a special booth that seats six people. Private dinning room is available to accommodate up to 12 guests. Signature dishes included halibut carpaccio with sun-dried tomato, Kobe Beef sashimi and albacore sashimi with shaved truffles.

    Want quiet? Come early. We've been enjoying SHU for years now. Our latest approach is to try to try something new each time. As we love everything we've had, it becomes quite easy simply to repeat (spicy tuna, SHU roll, Soft Shell Crab, eel sushi, all our usual favorites). Every time we branch out to something new, we're really happy. Oh, that black cod! Oh, that crispy risotto - tasted like a yummy potato pancake! The food is so fresh, so tasty, so beautifully presented, and the fish is such high quality. No mayonnaise dump ever takes place here. They have wonderful, flavorful sauces that don't hide the freshness of the fish. The servers are very nice and responsive, too.

    We had a seven O’clock reservation. We weren’t seated until 730 they couldn’t give us a table we had to sit at the bar it took another 20 minutes to be waited on then it took another 20 minutes to get our first course. Overbooked and very underwhelming and extremely expensive

    Very good sushi I had been to nobu the day before and there is absolutely no difference in the quality of the two, but pricing is so much better and the rolls also taste better Serving and cocktails were spot on, the ambience could have been better, as it looks a bit dated compared to the picture on the website Highly recommended overall

    As usual, SHU continues to be the best sushi restaurant in Los Angeles. The food is always A+, and the service is always great. It's a pricey restaurant, but well worth it, as the food is the best. Packed always, but if you have a reservation you will always get it
