Agai and again best sushi and sashimi

I have been eating here almost 10 years. It only got better. I remember their original place at spring garden. It has the same quality and delicious taste.

Sushi Shige has the best sushi in town - it's fresh, incredibly delicious and masterfully crafted. I've never had a bad meal here. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is reasonably priced. Whenever anyone asks me for a restaurant recommendation in Halifax I tell them to go to Sushi Shige.

Very good sushi close to waterfront, but selection is limited. The scallop sashimi was excellent. But do not have Hamachi the night we went which was a big let down, but the Toro made up for it.

The restaurant has an atmosphere of family run business, it is a simple place but has real Japanese foods. Sashimi and nigiri are all very fresh as how they should be, and there are many different choice which is really good. Service is good also. We love our dinner here!

If you are a fan of sushi pizza go to an ayce place. But, if you love authentic sushi come here. Shige San gave us good suggestions on when to come for the best selection of fresh sushi. Wish we could go more often as there is no place like this in Ottawa. 2 guests from Ottawa.

This reviews echoes others that have been written- it is not an overdone restaurant (simple in decor, clean, good servers), offers simple and traditional rolls that are wonderfully made. A nice atmosphere, friendly, delicious and well priced.

Just a good traditional a la carte sushi restaurant without fancy decor or overly complicated "westernized" rolls. No bizarre concoctions here, just the basics done very well. Service is friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
