SHU - Sushi House Unico - Bel Air
Every Sunday dinner
It is good and it is consistent. The fish is fresh and their preparations are delicious and artistic... Its not inexpensive but it is one of the better upscale sushi spots in town. The only minor negative is that it is a small space, so it is a bit loud and tables are close to eachother...
I took a dear friend to Shu for his birthday. A side by side banquette table awaited us. The staff couldn’t have been nicer. Our waitress was Shedara (sp) who is always a doll. Service was perfectly attentive.
The food as usual was fantastic. We especially enjoyed the soft shell crab, tempura oysters and artichoke hearts of palm salad.
Always have a great meal here.
I have been to this restaurant many times when it was much busier but, although the restaurant was less than half full, the service was impossible. We had to request water 3 times, the server took over 25 minute to come take our order, he was no where to be seen when we needed to have him fix the bill which had 2 items that we did not order.
Overall, a very frustrating meal.
The best sushi place in LA. Sea Bass hand roll is Amazing!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Great spot nestled in a strip mall above the mansions of Hollywood. Convivial atmosphere and always really lovely food.
Best sushi in LA and best service. Love going here and always leave satisfied.
Especially when they stick the mayo covered rolls in an oven with no good over it
As always, the food was wonderful. Very fresh sushi. Tonight, however, the service was slow. The waiter appeared confused and overwhelmed.
For having a reservation a week in advance, we got the last table by the door. Not great. The restaurant was extremely loud. Food good though.
Love this place, anytime, any way. Great food and lovely people and service
Shu is the best Asian restaurant anywhere! The unique way they blend flavors and the incredibly fresh ingredients they use makes for a variety of delicious choices on their menu. It is always a treat to eat at Shu!!
Poor service- They need more staff. Slow to take order, deliver food, check, etc.
This sushi restaurant always pleases. The quality of the fish is high, and the preparations are excellent. It’s a fine neighborhood restaurant with elevated cuisine.
Food and service was wonderful. Tables are all too close to other tables and diners.
When the table next to us was engaged in a loud argument, the staff quickly rescued us to a quiet table.
Love the sushi and the service. Love the quality of the sushi. The sauce on the most simple dish (albacore sashimi) was amazing!!!
Fabulous food, service and ambiance!
Our waitress was not on top of things !
I arrived a bit late due to mad traffic and the quagmire at valet. Parking is nearly impossible at the peak dining times if you don’t valet, and the valet had at least 6 cars waiting when I arrived. But the food is amazing. They got one special order wrong, but I’m used to that being a picky eater - have to stress certain subs as it’s easy for them to revert to a norm. This is one of my go to spots in the area.
We went because of the reviews and the (convenient) location, but extremely overpriced & the food was very disappointing. ps Although there is a big free parking lot it's shared by 4 restaurants & other stores so plan to go very early or very late or be prepared to circle or wait for a space.
Excellent service and great food. Always a good crowd. Unique dishes.
The crunch roll is the best crunch roll I’ve ever had. It’s my number 1 go to dish!
I love shu. The sushi is the best. It is also outrageously expensive but worth it. It’s fresh,delicious and unique
The waitress never smiled and low energy for New Years Eve.
Always LOVE this place. AmazIng sushi and the staff is superb.
Try it, you’ll love it!!!!
The sushi is grade A & the dishes are divine!
This place has excellent seafood with uniquely plated dishes. With such a variety of seasonal and non-seasonal fare it is hard to not eat something raw.
Amazing and incredibly delicious
Great vegan options. The avocado roll is one of the most fresh and good I ever had.
We come here a lot. The food is always good. Tonight, the service was really off. Slow. Items not brought to us, but they were on our bill. Server corrected the bill, but really didn't seem to care.
Nice place with decent amount of options. Toro sashimi was exceptionally good. Parking can be tricky on a busy night.
The service was not great. We went there after not being there in a very long time. We always go to Nobu or Katsuya. A crab leg roll took 35 minutes to come to our table. Everyone around us was getting their food when we had ordered the crab roll prior to them. Another roll came incorrectly. They were cool about taking a dish off the check that was not great at all. It was a salad that was over dressed and not very crisp. The hearts of palm salad. It just was not something we liked. Unfortunately I think possibly complaining about the salad might have been what made the service bad toward us since this was not our regular spot. That is a shame since we were spending $200. On dinner for 2 adults and a 12 year old without drinks. I think they would have made more of an effort. Because clearly we don’t mind spending money on a regular night out just grabbing some sushi and we live 5 min away. In any event for us its worth the drive to Nobu, Matsuhisa or Katsuya for great sushi, Japanese specials and Rolls. We would rather give our money to them. But that is just our opinion.
Service was awful and the food was mediocre. Too hot inside as well. Will not come back.
Food was good , but service is pretty slow and I had to ask a busboy to get our waitress so we can at least place basic orders.
Shu remains a superb dining experience. I have eaten there several times over a period of years and it never disappoints. Friendly, attentive and relaxed staff while still taking very good care of you. The black cod I had the other night was perfectly cooked.
Let’s just say my fiancé and I don’t go anywhere else for sushi. We are here once a week.
Really great creative sushi. Michelin Star type place but reasonably priced for the quality.
It is my #1 fav place to order amazing sushi.
