Business meeting there with very small party. Got there a few minutes early 1125 and hostess "put off" that I waited inside. Place got busy quick. We got a couple hand rolls, Tuna sashimi and a rainbow roll. The sashimi was awful, the hand rolls were okay. Service was fair at best and probably won't go back. There is little... More

After trying all the Sushi places in Rochester area - finally the great one! Menu is great, stuff you will not find in 'McDonald's Sushi' places that are these days everywhere. I would recommend owners of other 'sushi' places in the area to pay the visit to Shiki and learn what Japanese restaurant should have on menu and how it... More

I recently come back to town, and Shiki was the place it pop-up in my head to go for dinner. It been a year, but the food was still good as usual. My friends, they enjoy it. The only complaining was servers, they should give more attention to customers. They were kind of rude. Asked me to pay more tips... More

I visited this restaurant today and was disappointed. They were fairly busy when we arrived a little after 12 noon and we had a long wait before the server came over to take our order and then waited awhile for the appetizer. The soup I ordered was forgotten but when reminded she brought it right away. The main course of... More

Visited Shiki last night and was very happy with my experience. I ordered wine, which was good. I ordered three rolls to eat. Salmon, Tuna, and Philly Roll. All three were very fresh. The restaurant is small, so make sure you plan accordingly. The service was fast and I think the turnover is high, so the wait would be short.... More

Best in Rochester, hands down. Take right from my 80 year old Japanese mom. We've eaten in many sushi restaurants and she insists Shiki is hands down best in town.

Okay so not a lot of atmosphere, but I consider this one of my favorite Rochester haunts for Sushi. The staff was a bit inattentive, but polite and courteous. I love the baby octopus appetizer, a favorite for me. I usually get my standards (Shrimp Tempura Roll, Spicy Tuna Rolls, etc. - things you should not be able to mess... More

Based on the Tripadvisor review as well as Yelp, I went to this place. Me: LOVE Sushi, (I eat sushi every week) and apparently I've been to many Sushi places around the nation as well as Korea/ Japan. FOOD: Sashimi platter was actually a very good value. Fish were pretty fresh. Although there wasn't too many variety, it was cheaper... More

I've gone to Shiki for (about 10) years and it has always been my favorite traditional sushi restaurant in Rochester. It's small and if you try to go at dinner time on the weekends without a reservation, you'll have to wait. We try to go early or make a reservation. The service is usually good, sometimes slow when they get... More

When we are in Rochester, we make it a point to eat at Shiki. It is not a fancy place. I would probably normally give Shiki a 4 or 4.5 overall. But, I would rate this restaurant an "excellent" on croquettes, ramen, tempura (though we didn't eat the tempura at this visit, it was awesome in the past), and service... More
