Went here for happy hour and stayed longer then planned. Bar service was top notch and even entertaining (full of humor bar tender). Great app's and the beef cube entree was fantastic as well. Definitely coming back to this spot next visit.

My daughter and I love to get to a sushi restaurant every time we travel. We landed in LIC, NY for a 3-day turnaround and found Shi within walking distance (albeit a 20-30 minute walk) from our hotel. What a wonderful find.

Loved everything about this place! Good food, service, and atmosphere. Had a lovely table with a great view of mid town and the ESB. Fabulous choice especially when entertaining guests from out of town.

I live in LIC, Shi is always a great option for lunch or dinner, the food comes out quick and is always delicious. Additionally, they have a takeout section and they deliver in the local area. Sushi there is also delicious.

Amazing food with fantastic service, breathtaking views of Manhattan and a chic, relaxing ambience. SHI really is a wonderful overall experience. You can enjoy a great dinner and hang out at the upscale but comfortable bar afterward. I recommend trying one of their Lychee martinis. They are delicious! It's a great place to go to when you're not in the... More
