Food is 5 star but......

Prior to eating here, we stopped in and asked if it was BYOB. We did not see a bar and the owner said yes it is BYOB but there is a corking fee. We stopped next door and purchased a $12 bottle of sake. After returning and taking our seat we saw a drink menu complete with many varieties of... read more

We go to Shi Ki at least once a week. This is not only very welcoming but also very delicious. You have to try the crunchy rolls!!!

Absolutely amazing sushi!!! The taste, texture, presentation, customer service, ambiance...everything was perfect!! Spur of the moment decision turned a frustrating evening into a wonderful experience of superb dining!!! Sushi Chef is excellent with artistic flair! Serving sizes ample for cost. Thrilled and will return when next in town!

We had dinner here because it was just a few blocks from our hotel and we love sushi. We had four rolls and an appetizer of edamame and everything was wonderful. The rolls were very well made with fresh, high-quality ingredients. The food was delicious and we would highly recommend it!

This small, unassuming sushi spot is tucked away in a strip mall off east bay and is in good company. Ted's Butcher Block, east Bay Deli, and Saffron Bakery are all within a stone's throw. A true mom and pop opperation puts out the best miso soup in charleston and some solid sushi. Iso maki roll, enough said. typical sushi... More

Discovered this neighborhood gem last year and have looked forward to returning since then. The quality of the food remains top notch, the service is personal without being terribly formal and I doubt one could go wrong ordering anything on their menu. The place was filled with locals, all of whom were greeted quite graciously by the owner/hostess and, just... More

I had not been at Shi Ki for at least two years. I had forgotten how good the sushi is. Was in last week with a friend who previously worked at OKU. He was amazed at the quality of the sushi. The salmon is A+. Shi Ki is in a shopping center and is next to Rite Aid. It's overlooked... More

I was in the East Bay shopping center today and noticed Shi Ki was open for lunch. I had a very pleasant and delicious meal at the sushi bar. It is small with both tables and a nice sushi bar. The hostess and sushi chef were helpful in steering me towards two very fresh rolls. One with yellowtail and the... More
