This is a hidden gem and it shouldn't be hidden. The food is fresh, delicious and well presented. I work in the Boca Ray Plaza and there is none better. The staff is welcoming and go out of their way to make this small, attractive...restaurant a success. My favorite dish is their Poke Nachos. Better than any nachos, because they are crispy sheets of wonton noodles topped with fresh fish, avocado, other goodies and the sauce is addicting. The menu offers much more and anything I have ever had, has been fresh and made to order. The prices are very reasonable.More

We always enjoy eating at or taking out from Shiitake Asian Bistro, where you get very good service and great food. I love their Soft Shell Crab & Garlic Peppers, fried and battered soft shell crab, crispy garlic with chopped jalapeños and scallions. Nice portion...and always very good. I also had the Sashimi Appetizer, 9 pieces of chef choice., fresh and very good. My wife ordered the avocado & cucumber roll and sweet potato Tempura roll, both were very good. One of the better Asian restaurants in the area.More

Shitake aims to please, as evidenced by the indoor diners and the take-out orders. The staff is pleasant and efficient and the food is consistently good. I was disappointed to find that they no longer had the lobster soup which my wife and I loved....My wife had the shrimp mango curry and I had the Bocaray Roll. We both enjoyed our choice. Shitake is well worth trying or returning to, as was our case,More

In the middle of the Covid lockdown, we did a takeout order and were very impressed. In my review I stated that I could not wait to actually dine in the restaurant. Last night (Wednesday) we had our opportunity. Unfortunately, it did not go well....We arrived at 5:15 pm. A party of four arrived just ahead of us. In the restaurant there were two parties, neither of them had any food on their tables yet. The server seated us and that was the last time she came to our table. We waited patiently for over ten minutes and then decided to find another place to eat. There was only one server working the room, and in the 10+ minutes we waited, no food was delivered to any table. As we left the restaurant we saw the server taking the order from the party that arrived just before us. I really wanted to like this restaurant but I guess it was not to be. My rating does not reflect the quality of the food, or the prices. Just that we could not get served.More

Servers promptly greeted & seated us upon arrival. She patiently obtained our drink & appetizer orders. We ordered & enjoyed refreshing Thai ice tea, soft shell crab, spicy tuna on crispy rice, mussels, crispy pork belly, hot & crazy noodles with grilled chicken, cucumber roll&...volcano roll. Everything was promptly cooked & served fresh. Cold sushi was served cold. Hot food orders were served hot. Unfortunately we didn’t leave room for dessert. We will return again or order meals for take out.More

My wife chose this restaurant halfway between our house and the home of the couple we went here with, but otherwise there is little to recommend this average Asian eatery--really more Japanese than anything else. I ate two plates of shrimp and pork gyozas. We...all enjoyed what we ate, but overall I don't think the quality or quantity of the meals were good enough to draw us back. Free parking in front.More

Consistently very good food and service. Also very friendly staff. My wife loves the Kanisu ,imitation crab avocado, and masago wrapped in thin cucumber and served with seasoning vinegar. Also the California Roll, imitation crab, avocado, and tobiko, inside out with brown rice. I love...the Soft Shell Crab Garlic Peppers, deep fried batter soft shell crab, crispy garlic, jalapenos, and scallions, great. I also tried the Crispy Pork Belly Kapow, sautéed crispy pork belly, red peppers, string beans, and jalapenos in a spicy garlic basil sauce. Very good except the pork belly was a little fatty. Definitely worth a try.More

Food tasted great but... I am Type 1 Diabetic w/an insulin pump and a CGM. I had to use 4 times the usual amount of insulin I usually do!!! Just a warning. Unfortunately, I won't be eating there again.

Once again, our order from Shitake was quite good. We started with the delicious spicy lobster soup. I had my standby--Seafood Madness---full of seafood and flavor. My wife somewhat liked the mango curried shrimp, but wasn't able to pinpoint what she didn't like.t. She did...say she would not order it again. It doesn't seem to have the same taste as other restaurants' versions. Overall, we did enjoy our dinner.More
