We moved into a new place for a few months just across the street from Shiki about a month ago and have noted every time we walk by at lunch or dinner it is filled. We finally went for Mom's Day with 6 of us and it was terrific.

Not that large but tastefully done. Superb service from the beginning to the end. And the food was delicious. We had four orders of superb sashimi, at least a half dozen different rolls, a delightful crispy prawns in a teriyaki sauce with a hint of wasabi, and a couple of tempura/teriyaki combinations. All of the food was very fresh, perfectly prepared, and very tasty.

It's hard to rate any restaurant 5 stars as it takes a major sustained effort of out of this world food and service to do it. This place comes about as close as you can get without the next step up.

A very pleasant surprise and we are already planning our next trip.

This is one of the best sushi, sashimi places in the area around Foster City and San Mateo. I loved the sashimi and my wife love her sushi. The pork pot stickers are also very good. The offer beer and wine.

My wife and I ate dinner for happy hour last night and it was ok. We used to go here a lot and have not been in maybe 9 months, but last night one of the rolls we got was not very fresh and smelled a bit fishy, but the other items we got were good. I don't think we will be back soon due to the recent change in the sushi quality.

Our family wanted to go out for Japanese and we decided to try Shiki again. We have had "okay" experiences in the past. We had a large party of people which they accommodated us. After ordering they started to bring out the food as it was finished being made which was great.

In regards to dishes, we enjoyed the variety of sushi rolls they had including some interesting specials they had. They were all delicious and tasted so fresh. In addition, the vegetable ramen soup was really a hearty meal with a great tasting broth.

We eat here often if we want sushi. Sushi here is great. They have special hours for reduced cost. Quantity is good, food is excellent, and great service. I also enjoy their udon. Kids love the katsu
