    You really cannot beat their happy hour. They opened at 5pm on Thursday so when we got there it wasn't too crowded. By six the place was pretty much full. Great sushi and appetizer options on the HH menu. Drink options were okay, and their tap water was pretty awful but I ordered pellegrino. Bill was only $70 for five rolls, two apps, and 6 drinks so that's a win. We did notice food service getting some what slower as they got more crowded but was a minor inconvenience. Bathrooms are small and can probably benefit from a deep cleaning.

    We just happened upon this restaurant. Honestly, by accident. We were having dinner before a performance of My Fair Lady. This was the Perfect "accident". We ordered a sushi appetizer, some sushi rolls, and a bottle of wine. Everything we had was excellent. The service was great! I will definitely come back again. Forgive the photo of the app, we dug in before taking the picture. It was phenomenal (probably the best thing we ordered)!

    Was really excited to go to Shakai for the first time as a sushi lover but was so disappointed at the service. After paying $100 for the meal I was so frustrated about the entire experience. It wasn’t super busy but once we ordered we waited 20 min for appetizers - they were cold. The server said she was also bringing back sauces but didn’t, so we ate cold calamari with no sauce. Then every dish she brought to the table she sat in front of the wrong person. It was like she was just sitting things on our table with no regard. Then our food took over 30 min - it was 2 sushi rolls! There was no apology. The server got the soups wrong after our long wait and my daughter’s bowl of rice took forever….it was just rice. My friend ordered two shrimp appetizers and one was $5 more and the server said nothing about the up charge. It was simply one of the worst “service” experiences I’ve ever had and I eat out a lot. I felt like they literally had no focus on the dining experience. The food was 4 out of 10 but prob would have been better if the service had been better. Definitely not recommending this place to friends.

    This was a badass Sushi Lounge. Their happy hour is amazing and they have a great full menu as well. I cam here with some friends and we did everything in our power to try and eat everything on the happy hour menu. We almost succeeded. It was the first time in a long time I had to tap out on my sushi devouring challenge. I was amazed on their vegetarian sushi roll options. There was the basic cucumber and avocado vegetarian roll options, but also some really really unique ones. I thoroughly enjoyed the ginger salad vegetarian roll, the tempura sweet potato roll, the vegetarian California roll without krab, and the daikon radish vegetarian roll. Each one was beautifully simple and delicious. They had amazing classic sushi and Sashimi selection as well. One could easily be overwhelmed by their large sushi menu, but I greatly enjoyed their thought process and complex combinations. Their Hawaiian sushi roll was a neat change, as well as their Mexican roll. They also had hot appetizers on their happy hour menu including teriyaki mushrooms, potato croquettes (which were really good), edamame, gyoza (steamed or fried), and vegetable tempura. Anyone can eat here an be happy. Doesn't matter if you are vegan, vegetarian, carnivore, or omnivore. They have a great Sake selection. They also offer sake Cocktails on the happy hour menu, as well as hot or cold Classic sakes. I was able to enjoy a hot Sake at the beginning and a cold sake towards the end of my meal. I highly recommend this sushi joint!!! I would happily come back here. Only major criticism I have is Parking is always a pain in the neck. Food is amazing, and drinks are good. It's a beautiful and clean restaurant. Make sure to stop by!

    We ordered the sumo steak with "fried potatoes". What we recieved was a steak and French fries. My suggestion is to indicate what you are actually serving, in no way is fried potatoes supposed to be French fries. On top of that the fries were cold. I am not sure who's idea it was to make tempura asparagus, but it was a big disappointment. We also ordered the Teriyaki chicken, which was decent. But the temperature of the food was cold. Not sure if the food is already made and sitting there 🤔. It seems like everyone raves about the happy hour. I think you need to do better on your food game. I would put a hard pass on this restaurant.
