Shi offered a great menu with lots of selections. The food was good...but be prepared for lots of small children. The bar area looked like it was 'adults only', but the restaurant had lots of baby carriages--which could be a good thing, if you have small ones!

This is an amazing restaurant with great service and delicious food. The view of the city is totally breathtaking. Great ambiance and the staff are extremely friendly. They are very welcoming; whether is your first time or if you are a regular customer they always make you feel special. Highly recommend Shi Restaurant.

My boyfriend and I went here with another couple. The service was great and the food was delicious. It was very reasonably priced. We had a seat at the window and the views over looking Manhattan was amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant

I came across Shi searching for a spot to eat not too far from me for a business lunch. I didn't know what exactly to expect. This place is amazing! I don't know why it has $$$$ as the price for the food was VERY reasonable. For a group of 4 people it averaged about $40 a pop and we... More

The prices are on point for a good sushi place: $6 - $12 rolls. They're delicious! The atmosphere is nice & romantic. Great views of the Manhattan! Love coming here.

This restaurant has some of the best views in all of NYC. You'll see the entire Midtown skyline. I live in the building the restaurant is located in. We've gone at least once a week for the past five years. The food is consistently good. The staff is very friendly and helpful Ask for Selix, the waiter. He's the best... More

This is a lovely place to take friends to, especially when visiting queens. This little gem in the midst of new construction in Long Island city should definitely be on your list to visit when in Long Island city. Great views of Manhattan, great food, service is somewhat lackluster but not enough to ruin the evening. Will return.

Aug 22; 6:30 PM. We walked into a very quiet place. Minimal staff. Once we order drinks, things come around a bit more. The meal itself was excellent. And behold, people began to show up. The message I'd like to leave you with is the following: Folks if you don't get out and support this very nice neighborhood place, it... More
