About

Japanese cuisine is easily one of the healthiest on Earth, with its concentration on fresh fish, seafood, meats, vegetables and rice. The zesty sauces and delicate flavors of fresh foods compliment each other beautifully, and the methods of presentation turn even simple meals into ornate, eye-pleasing events. The Japanese love of beauty and simplicity turns slices of fish into miniature artworks, turning the platter into paint palettes for the artistry of the chef. Here, at Shuhei, traditional ways of creating dishes and preparing foods are far from lost. Authentic, high-quality and extensive Japanese fare is the highlight of the restaurant complete with affordable prices, relaxing atmosphere, kimono-clad waitresses who go the extra mile to make you smile and "the best sushi this side of Tokyo" according to ZAGAT Survey 2008!

We generally like this restaurant very much for sushi or Asian soup/noodle dishes. This time we had duck and a shrimp/ scallop skewer dishes from the menu. Neither were particularly good. Stick with sushi, hot pots, ramen or other soup/noodle dosages and you will have a very good meal. Deviate and you might be disappointed, as we were.

We always enjoy Shuhei. It is one of our favorite restaurants. the prices are a bit on the high side and the drinks are very high priced compared to comparable restaurants. However, the combination of great food and great service keep us going back, but we would probably go more often if the drinks were less expensive.

Just a fabulous meal and amazing service by Chi. I also love how the owner is always there and always making sure the experience is memorable. For those that think this is a fabulous sushi restaurant, they are correct but the non sushi menu here is gourmet and food quality is beyond exceptional. This is a consistent, truly excellent restaurant! Can't wait to go back!

Shuhei is an upscale Japanese restaurant with a nice atmosphere and efficient service. My disappointment is that the food is only average. The sushi was good but not better than a lot of other less expensive places. A couple of items from the kitchen menu were not well described by the menu and not particularly well prepared. By all means go to Shuhei for a special occasion where the ambiance is as important as the food. But save your money if you are a foodie.

This was our first time to Shuhei. The fact that it was packed and very loud on a Sat. night told me that it must be good. I expected a warmer reception since we had reservations...not a smile to be had by the hostess or gentleman who seated us. The experience started with hot towels. Our waitress had to be new...after taking our appetizer order she also took the menus; we had to ask for them back to order dinner. During the meal, she identified a sauce she was putting down and then no sooner took it away. We had to wait until she returned to check on us to ask for it back. The sushi rolls are very small- smaller than the grocery store version. They were good but pricey for the size and the 6-count. They also took a long time to arrive. Our dinners - tempura chicken and sirloin steak . Each dinner came with miso soup and salad, both good. The entree's were a bit disappointing. The chicken tempura was completely unseasoned; literally chicken strips in a light crunch batter- very bland. With seasoning, it would have shined. The dipping sauce was watered down, nondescript teriyaki-like sauce; it added no flavor. The tempura battered vegetables were one broccoli, one slice of sweet potato, one zucchini and one banana...a rude awakening for me because super sweet, mushy banana is not palate pleaser. The steak dinner was odd; a small bowl of white rice, a pile of bean sprouts. a few veggies (unseasoned) and a steak that was unnaturally soft; almost like it had been marinated to break down the fibers and tenderize and then grilled fried (?). It is likely cut and used in other beef dinners on the menu. We also had to ask for a knife/fork; were they expecting us to cut and eat it with chopsticks? I would not recommend this dish. The desserts were few and not Japanese. Overall, this restaurant did not feel like a Japanese experience. Nothing was bad but overall, it was forgettable.

Over the many years this has become my consistent lunch place to meet with friends or business associates. For that matter, it's a great place for dinner too and whenever my daughter comes into town this is the restaurant she wants to go to. I don't blame her. One of Cleveland's stalwart gems.

A very disappointing meal at Shuhei. Fresh Salmon sushi was like a miniature order of sushi. About 1/3 the usual size at Shuhei. Teriyaki chicken was overcooked and dried out and tasteless. Have no idea what to order if I go back.

We’re never disappointed when we eat at Shuhei. We know what we’ll get each time and the restaurant is consistently good. The sushi is excellent and there’s a wide variety available. But the other items on the menu are just standard dishes you’d expect to find at most Japanese restaurants. All the food is very well prepared but there is nothing exceptional. Service is very good.
