Went to this restaurant last night and ended up proving my own first impressions of the place wrong. We were supposed to go to another Japanese restaurant at The Rocks, but when it turned out to be closed on a boring Monday evening, we ended up at Shiki Restaurant. We got there at around 6:30pm which is pretty early for after-work dining enthusiast like me. The restaurant looks nice enough but looks scarily expensive being situated at The Rocks, so I was expecting the touristy price to match the decor as well. After checking out the menu, to wit I was right is on the expensive side, we ordered combination sashimi, seaweed salad, beek tataki and teriyaki salmon trout. My verdict on the food: the sashimi selection were all fresh and tasty, seaweed salad was hefty enough for three people though it could have done with more seaweed, beef tataki was a real winner - thinly sliced raw beef with a white soy sauce as dipping sauce, but the main event was the ocean trout teriyaki which was just divine, It came with a bit of salad, steamed lotus, zucchini and mushrooms on a bed of what i thought might be red beans and a good lashing of beautiful rich teriyaki sauce. We washed this all down with green tea ice cream - nothing special but good just the same. All the food came in extra large white plates and bowls, too big in fact.
Perhaps what was good about Shiki is not just the food but the friendly staff and quick service. The staff delivers the food with a smile and they came in quickly. Bottom line, I was happy with the whole experience, if you have a few dollars to spare and would like a little class with your Japanese dining, I would recommend Shiki.
