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.

Love the service and food. Especially the truffle pasta (only place I would eat sushi with pasta). Simply perfection.

It was good but the service was a bit disorganized. I’ve eaten there before so, I’ve think the service issue was related to having all the seating outside. They just aren’t used to it yet. But the staff was still quite friendly even though it took a bit linger

Food is always consistently delicious and they are gluten free friendly. Reservation times are accurate and they never leave us waiting for our table. A++ establishment and happy to support them even during these unprecedented times. They take covid safety protocols very seriously and do a great job.

Better than serviceable. I'd give it 3-1/2 stars.
The tempura appetizer was first rate, the spicy tuna was fine, the soft shell crabs were below par (fishy and not delicate).
Beware of Saturday parking. There is a free valet but the parking can be a mess.
Part of a decent set of restaurants halfway between west side and the valley.

The fish is excellent. Items other than sushi are best saved for another spot. You will certainly pay for what you get but you're getting some of the best sushi around.

I’ve had this waiter before and he is just horrible. It’s a young Asian man, and he always forgets everything! Forgets to let us know they are out of certain dishes, forgets to put in to go orders, forgets what we ordered. The food in general is great and I always leave a good review for this restaurant, but this waiter is just terrible!
