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.

Love the sushi and the service. Love the quality of the sushi. The sauce on the most simple dish (albacore sashimi) was amazing!!!

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.

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.

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.

I really love this place. My local go-to for some of the best sushi, etc in LA. Omakase is always spot on, and there are always some wonderful specials. I'm comfortable dropping in solo for a quick bite after work, or bringing a group of any size for a special dining experience.
