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 Ratings and Reviews
The food is great. Let me say that first. However, it is extremely expensive in my opinion. A party of 6, one of whom didn't order an entree , and only 1 of whom had a beer, cost $182. I think it's the best Japanese food on the Eastside of Cleveland, but be prepared to spend.
Shuhei is consistently the best sushi in the Cleveland area. They also have an extensive Japanese menu with classic and modern dishes. Restaurant is always busy so using open table really helps getting a reservation. Not a cheap night out but great food well worth it.
Though located in the back of a nondescript office building on Chagrin Boulevard Shuhei is not to be missed if you enjoy sushi. Though the ambiance is nothing to write about the food and service are excellent. From the first few minutes when the waitstaff brings you a warmed washcloth to clean your hands to the friendly smile upon your departure, Shuhei is definitely worth the drive.
Food was quite tasty. Place was packed and our servers seemed to be confused as to who had our table...took quite a while to have our orders taken, then longer to actually be served. Bizarrely, mid-meal, another server came by and asked the name of the dish my friend was eating....since when do wait-staff not know the names of standard offerings? Despite the bizarre dining this time, I would go back, but know that you can't get in and get out as quickly as you might like.
After checking Open Table for nearby open reservations within the hour, we chose Shuhei. When we arrived we were told there was a wait and ended up waiting 20 minutes past the time of our reservation. There were a number of folks waiting who also had reservations, so it appeared they were more interested in bringing in customers to wait rather than offering accurate reservation times. When we were finally seated we quickly placed an order for fried dumplings and our waitress kept promising to come back and take the rest of our order. After several attempts, we finally ordered three rolls. The dumplings came steamed, not fried. We ate them and they were fine, if not what we ordered. Despite repeated promises that our food was almost ready, the waitress brought the three rolls ordered by the table next to us that had been seated well after we were. She was all apologies, but we let her know we were getting frustrated. She explained (1) that the other table's rolls were much simpler and (2) they had a lot of take-out orders they had to get done. Neither explanation was a good reason to make us wait over 50 minutes to get 3 rolls. After she finally brought our rolls a manager or owner stopped by and again blamed the fact that the three rolls were complicated (poor excuse) and said only 2 of his 4 sushi chefs had shown up (slightly more understandable excuse). He said they would provide us a dessert for our troubles. We thanked him. The rolls ok, but not as good as Pacific East or Wasabi. The dessert was a mediocre chocolate espresso cake, but a nice gesture. After more waiting we finally got our bill, paid it and left. As we were backing out of our parking space the waitress came flying out to the car to tell us she had given us the wrong bill and that she was going to have to pay the difference. The evening had finally reached full comic levels. We paid her the difference with tip in cash. She then said she hoped we would come back. We won't.
