The food here was so delicious and proportioned nicely (not too much, not too little.) I ate steak and chicken, also some of the sushi. Can't wait to go back to Shokitini again.

Stopped in for a quick meal. Delicious sushi and fairly priced along with attentive service. Our waters were refilled quickly and we were checked on often. I definitely plan on going back to try some other rolls!

This is one of the best places for sushi in Athens with a unique atmosphere. It tends to be crowded on the weekends, so plan accordingly. Lots of sushi choices as well as other entrees. I've never been disappointed here!

I had a great experience recently at Shokitini. I took my daughter and her beau. Loved the miso soup and the sushi was great. Always worried this far inland, but very fresh and delicious. Atmosphere is lively and crowded, but only had to wait 15...More
