Always a very fresh presentation with friendly servers. Gets crowded early in the day and reservations are a must but worth the effort. The freshest fish in town.

Super noisy. Like hurts your ears noisy. Forget about talking across the table unless you’re used to shouting.

Fish is super fresh and delicious!

nice place, if a little pricey for what you get. i suppose that has to do with the fact that it's in Bel-Air, so the only option for sushi in that particular neck of the woods. service was attentive, food was good but not mind-blowing.

Service was very slow. My wife was done eating when my entree arrived. Tables that were seated after we ordered where served ahead of us.

Something was off this evening because our prior visit was perfect in every way.

Consistently well done and creative options, this time some very nice pieces of Maguro sashimi and Blue fin. A couple of rolls that were really good and a nice dry cold sake made it a great evening.

We spend our time in Los Angeles, Maui, and Palm Springs and we have to say that SHU is the best sushi we have ever had! We always look forward to going there when in town. The fish is so amazing. Whether you like straight sushi, fancy rolls, or other dishes they are all top quality and very creative. Just writing this review makes me want to go back!

Consistently delicious food. We ordered the premium omakase, which they did say they keep bringing food until we say stop. I guess I should not have assumed it was all you can eat for the stated menu price so I was surprised when the bill for $373 came for 2 people. The premium omakase came with some items I generally don't enjoy like jelly fish and octopus, so maybe I should have gone with the non premium order. I would also give a slight preference to the sushi courses over the cooked courses.

It is one of the rare sushi restaurants that is open on Sundays. It is a little out of the way, but well worth the drive.

I love this hilltop and hidden Japanese restaurant for its excellent food. And I eat there along, with friends, and for business. With its large menu the ordering can be creative and new each time. I've never had an ordinary meal there. Something about it is always special and it can't just be me!

SHU is always a solid choice for very good sushi and other Japanese dishes. Our recent visit they had some outstanding Toro sushi! Can get a bit noisy inside, and no outdoor or patio option. Other than that, SHU works for us since it's also very close to where we live.

SHU is one of the best kept secrets in the Beverly Glen Center. I almost do not want to write this review to tip off others to our local best sushi haven! Everything about SHU is fantastic. Great presentation and service, and most importantly quality food and ambiance.
