I planned a brunch outing for my Mother in Laws birthday and it was a nightmare. First off, I made reservations 2-3 weeks prior and explained that I wanted a seat by the window for a special occasion. When we arrived, they sat us at one of the puny tables by the front door - my husband was not having... More

Who would ever think a restaurant that serves both Japanese and Chinese food could be so good? This is a hard restaurant to describe, but it's more than serviceable and the sushi as well as the Chinese dishes are excellent quality

I love their lettuce wraps, sushi and broiled fish. Beautiful space looking at the New York skyline, outdoor dining, weather permitting. Active bar scene in the front of the restaurant with tv for sports.

the service is nice, at least mostly. the lady who seem to be the owner though is pushy and not particularly kind. good food, well presented and in good portions. very good green thai, sushi and a warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice that deserves a little self-indulgence. it's not cheap but good food and good quality have their price,...

Went here for happy hour and stayed longer then planned. Bar service was top notch and even entertaining (full of humor bar tender). Great app's and the beef cube entree was fantastic as well. Definitely coming back to this spot next visit.

My daughter and I love to get to a sushi restaurant every time we travel. We landed in LIC, NY for a 3-day turnaround and found Shi within walking distance (albeit a 20-30 minute walk) from our hotel. What a wonderful find. We were seated immediately (a July Wednesday night after the 4th at around 5:45PM). Ordered drinks and a... More
