If you want very fresh sushi or sashimi come to SHU! – I am partial to raw fish and this place is consistently good. The tuna is always nice and red with no fibers. The albacore is heavenly with a perfect ponzu sauce. The yellow tail is like the yummiest butter in your mouth. The quality is just there for all the raw fish, whatever you order. I would recommend coming here if you are a sushi lover or if you are in the mood to be adventurous and feel like trying something new at a place where you know it will be good.
For non-sushi people there is a variety of other dishes, unexpected salads (like mozzarella and crab), as well as hot meat and seafood dishes.
Most expensive sushi ever – Even when I said I was in a hurry, my food came last. The chicken teriyaki and beef teriyaki were highly priced and came with about 10 pieces of meat on a plate with 2 slices of cuke and 2 slices of carrot! The sushi pieces were tiny with the highest price of yellowtail I've ever encountered!
If you want the only sushi place on top of the mountain, then go ahead and pay these ridiculous prices, otherwise go somewhere else. Even the California rolls were tiny. I didn't even want to give it one gold star but in order to publish this, I had to "give it a rating."
Wonderful Sushi – Whenever my husband and I don't feel like driving into town, this is our go to sushi place. Yes, there are better sushi restaurants in L.A., but any restaurant where the food is really good and you can just hop on your car be seated in less than 10 minutes, is absolutely as good as it gets.
Special Sushi House – Special find in a tucked away corner of Bel-Air. Great service - smiling wait staff and there when you need them. Top notch sushi - fresh and unique choices on the menu along with the standards that I have to have like spicy tuna roll cut. Everything we ordered was delicious! Excellent sake choices. Can go early with the kids, they are very welcoming. I was really impressed by this awesome restaurant in my own backyard!
Classic sushi marries Asian-Latin fusion in an exclusive Bel-Air setting that draws stars and a posh neighborhood crowd. – In Short
Contemporary yet traditional, this elegant space combines stone, wood and Japanese art motifs. Dramatic lighting illuminates the local gentry and celebs like Heather Locklear and Teri Hatcher. The small sushi bar was created from hand-chiseled and torched granite, with a large slab of walnut cut from a single tree. Giacomino Drago (Piccolo Paradiso) has crafted a fusionistic vision, melding traditional sushi with Mediterranean cuisines with items such as salmon-wrapped papaya with caviar, and lobster dynamite.
