Sushi
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!

Shuhei is the best for sushi! They have a wide range of Japanese cuisine to select from, and everything I've tried has been great.

Shuhei is always a great meal but what makes it even more amazing is the staff. In particular, Michelle is outstanding and really does so much to make my daughters feel special each and every time we go there for dinner. We could always get takeout as the food is consistently awesome but instead always dine in because of her and the other servers.

After taking an Uber from Brooklyn Heights to Shuhei for a 9:45 reservation, we were told they were closed and doing maintenance and could not be served. We then had to wait outside in the cold for another Uber. Shuhei never contacted me to cancel my reservation.

We go to Shuhei regularly when we are in the mood for sushi and sashimi, as we think theirs is the best in NE Ohio. Their tempura is also the best we have ever tasted; so light and delicate. Their servers are normally quiet and very reserved, but this time our server was more outgoing and she was delightful. So she made it an even better experience than normal.

Our latest visit to this iconic Japanese restaurant, which is now 24 years old, was a bit disappointing. Two of us ordered the Sushi omakase platter, and frankly, I have to assume a trainee assembled the offerings. The egg sushi (tamago) fell apart, as did another of the nigiri sushi, plus a couple of the rolls were unraveling as they were eaten.

Aside from that, the poke appetizer was astounding, and the tempura was as good as usual.

food was excellent and the sushi chefs know us and what we like. However, water was spilled over one of our plates and the service was not helpful. Water was not brought, neither were the hot towels until we had already started eating Asked for ice in water and was told the ice was on the floor due to the spill. Really!!!!
