    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

    The Sushi was very, very good. A tall Sake $25.00, seriously?? My wife and I $400 before tip. Nothing is worth a $400 Sushi dinner, nothing.

    Food and service are outstanding! The only caveat is that the tables are really close together, and there are still these plastic dividers, making everything feel more cramped lol. I will still be back!

    This was our first trip to SHU Sushi and I have to say it was phenomenal! Everything we had was amazing...especially the chilean sea bass cut roll and the halibut sashimi with shaved truffles!! There are so many things on the menu we didn't get to that we can't wait to try on future visits. Really great service too and we were quite surprised at how quickly things came to the table even though the place was super busy and every table was filled.

    It's a very basic sushi restaurant. The food is okay. It's not the best and it's not the worst. I don't understand what all the hype is about. It's sad to see so many reviews and so high for something so simple and basic. There's truffle on everything here lol. It's a small place The staff is nice and the place is clean overall. The location is also very cute in bel air in a hidden gem shopping center. I would try it again maybe. Maybe not lol The sashimi was the best thing on the menu. The beer was Luke warm and I ordered two to give them a second chance. They failed at both. Truffle pasta is over hyped I wouldn't order again. I think it's a great date spot, but I have definitely been to Way better sushi spot I'll rate this please a 2.5 out of 3

    Best sushi experience I’ve ever had. Seating was a bit compact but by the end of the meal that wasn’t even a thought in my mind. The food was amazing🤌🏼 the soft shell crab appetizer was a higher quality compared to anything I’ve had in that sector. And the mixed ceviche was incredibly refreshing. The service was second to none, our server gave recommendations and walked us through the best way to have each item, and table service (water, plates, etc) was polite and attentive. Cannot wait to go back.

    Love SHU! We’ve been going to SHU for as long as I can remember. They’ve always managed to stay consistent. Food is always fresh! The restaurant itself is small and with the new dividers for COVID safety, it makes it even smaller. Tables are very close to each other. However, that won’t stop us from going back to enjoy some amazing sushi!

    Server was great, food was usual as anywhere else. Reviews said outdoor sitting, but there were none. Tables were very close to each other. Restaurant phone number was either showing busy or wrong number, so we weren’t able to confirm the sitting arrangement.

    I was really disappointed with the entire experience. The service was sub par, food took forever. Never once refilled our water. The food was not good quality, crispy rice was extremely dry, toro was plain, miso soup was plain, yellowtail jalapeño was ok, truffle pasta was good but $85 for one bowl. Much better choices available in LA. I wouldn’t go back.

    Hostess was so rude. Never looked up and asked for our vax card. Can’t be friendly and welcome? 1.5 hours later kicked us out and said times ups. Needs the table. Also it’s a small restaurant and the screens between each table are annoying especially when they fall on us.
