“Super place for lunch or dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The service here has always been outstanding. We have been customers since they were located in Richmond. The food is wonderful. The atmosphere is very quiet and relaxing. I often take visiting business guests here because I can always count on their staff to be professional and the food to be very good. My favorite dish is negimayaki. Their tempura is very well prepared. Most of my guests sample their sushi and a very positive in their comments. They appetizer, I prefer age dofu, but have also enjoyed the edamame and gyoza.

“Do not miss this if you are looking for authentic, fresh, excellent Japanese food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

We went here for a mid-week quick dinner and were pleasantly surprised. Other reviews go into more detail, and everything from reviews in 2011 remains accurate. Excellent, friendly staff, fresh, authentic food, and patronized by Japanese people. Service was quick (it was a Wednesday) and the miso soup was the best my husband (who travels frequently) has ever had. We fully intend to visit again.

“Please try the sushi..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

During our annual trip to the Cleveland area, we drove past this place a few times in Summer 2011 on the way to the farmers market in Solon. So this year, we were very hungry but reasonably pleased with just about everything. Our evening meal order included 2 combo tempura bento boxes with chicken and shrimp; Yaki Soba; Aparagus Roll; Kappa Maki; and the Seaweed Salad. It was a tasty and a little expensive way to end a day of visiting family. For a Cleveland restaurant, I give this eatery an eager thumbs up!

“Absolutely the BEST sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Shinano's has the best Sushi in the Cleveland area. My friends and I make the long trip there 5-6 times a year (it's a little out of our way-45 minutes-, but well worth the drive). Their volcano rolls are to die for! The staff is welcoming and attentive. They always make us feel like friends when we come in.
I can't say enough good things about the place!

“Good food, peaceful environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

This place used to be located in Richmond Hts and while service was friendly and attentive, you couldn't help but think the decor could be updated...and then they moved.
The decor is basic and adequate, but more importantly is that in this day and age it is a rarity to find a restaurant that you can actually have a conversation without raising your voice.
Our server was very attentive, and her service was efficient. This place is traditional enough that utensils and sugar for the tea must be requested.
Small sealed pouches with a warmed moist towelette were delivered to the table. The only negative to the visit was the desire to use the wipe on the slightly soiled looking and feeling plastic covered menu.
I succumbed to the less healthy tempura meal. It came with the miso soup and small salad prior. Served hot and along with delicious rice.
As we were leaving after an early dinner, we were thanked by the gentleman at the sushi bar as well as the hostess. Pretty rare, and the kind of behavior that not only wins my heart but makes me want to support the establishment.
There may be a couple other Japanese places drawing the crowds in the area, but this one is the most peaceful. Will look forward to giving the sushi a try or ordering some take out.
