Very good Sushi in a quaint little place...

Okay so not a lot of atmosphere, but I consider this one of my favorite Rochester haunts for Sushi. The staff was a bit inattentive, but polite and courteous. I love the baby octopus appetizer, a favorite for me. I usually get my standards (Shrimp Tempura Roll, Spicy Tuna Rolls, etc. - things you... read more

Based on the Tripadvisor review as well as Yelp, I went to this place. Me: LOVE Sushi, (I eat sushi every week) and apparently I've been to many Sushi places around the nation as well as Korea/ Japan. FOOD: Sashimi platter was actually a very good value. Fish were pretty fresh. Although there wasn't too many variety, it was cheaper... More

I've gone to Shiki for (about 10) years and it has always been my favorite traditional sushi restaurant in Rochester. It's small and if you try to go at dinner time on the weekends without a reservation, you'll have to wait. We try to go early or make a reservation. The service is usually good, sometimes slow when they get... More

When we are in Rochester, we make it a point to eat at Shiki. It is not a fancy place. I would probably normally give Shiki a 4 or 4.5 overall. But, I would rate this restaurant an "excellent" on croquettes, ramen, tempura (though we didn't eat the tempura at this visit, it was awesome in the past), and service... More

We visited this restaurant yesterday and left very unhapy. We were the only party waiting for a table when another party came in and were seated almost immediately. We asked the hostess why and she said the owner knew the other party and told her to seat them first...we'll never go back and would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.... More

It really tears me apart that I want to give a 4 to 4.5 star review and I'll explain why in a bit. First arriving it's a very small restaurant with about 8-10 tables. Probably not located in the most promising part of the neighborhood as well. Parking can be tricky because you have two options. You either park on... More

Very good sushi in the Rochester Area. We were a group of 11 and sat in their upstairs private area. Service was not so great, but the food was really good. Next time I would not come with a larger group. Their salad dressing was great and the sushi was very well prepared. Would definitely come back when I am... More

I grew up with very picky Japanese parents who would complain if the rice wasn't right consistency. I feel confident that my parents would love this place. The surroundings are very unassuming, and the place is small, but the service was pleasant. The menu had a lot of good choices, and then when we got our food (very quickly!), it... More

Shiki has the very best Japanese food in Rochester. Their sushi always tastes fresh, other items on the menu offer possibilities not found elsewhere in town, The atmosphere is simple, even spartan, but once the food arrives, you won't care about the surrroundings.
