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

I visited this restaurant today and was disappointed. They were fairly busy when we arrived a little after 12 noon and we had a long wait before the server came over to take our order and then waited awhile for the appetizer. The soup I ordered was forgotten but when reminded she brought it right away. The main course of... More

Visited Shiki last night and was very happy with my experience. I ordered wine, which was good. I ordered three rolls to eat. Salmon, Tuna, and Philly Roll. All three were very fresh. The restaurant is small, so make sure you plan accordingly. The service was fast and I think the turnover is high, so the wait would be short.... More

Best in Rochester, hands down. Take right from my 80 year old Japanese mom. We've eaten in many sushi restaurants and she insists Shiki is hands down best in town.

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
