“Choose from the daily specials on the wall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Su Shin is a great little place. The food is genuine, unadulterated Tokyo Shibuya-style neighborhood preparation. There are typically a dozen or so daily specials on the wall, you order by number if your Japanese is rusty, and they are invariably delicious. They have sushi too, but the best things are usually cooked specials. There are usually a couple of en papillote options, which are delightful, delectable and not to be missed. One frequent option is a melange of three mushrooms types with scallops, which is worth the trip all by itself.

“My favorite sushi dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is no frills, top quality sushi at very reasonable prices. Don't expect to see the hand of an interior decorator at this place, just great Japanese food and a VERY loud "hello" as you enter. Make sure to check out the specials on the East wall.

“Authentic Japanese food, friendly and casual atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Great sushi, always perfectly fresh and beautifully prepared. Delicious cooked dishes, too, with lots of variety. Seems like Japanese businessmen stay in the hotel across the street just to be near Su Shin Isakaya.
