Had dinner while on a business meeting and found the wagyu beef pleasant but a small portion. Felt that being told that the kitchen was closing at 9 pm was disappointing as I could have eaten more. Great view of the antics of the local ladies falling off their high heels outside and mooning from limos was by far the highlight of the evening . Enjoyed the various sakes .

My girlfriend and I stayed across the road at the Harbour Rocks Hotel for a long weekend away and were sent here by the staff. We both love Japanese food and were not disappointed by Shiki. It could e a little hard to see if you didn't know it was there as it is one floor up from the street. Once we got in there was a nice young man who greeted us. Inside is very nice with stepping stones and running water over a pond. We were seated and upon looking at the menu we both chose the wagu hot pot. We had never had it before but we both wanted to try it. They brought over a square pot that they plug in and put in some sauces. They then left us all the food on a plate for us to cook in the pot and dip in an egg and eat. It was one of the best meals ever. We will definitely be back and we know what we'll be ordering.

Shiki was recommended by a friend. We had seen the restaurant several times before however I assumed it was there for the tourists rather than being somewhere we would want to try. I'm so glad we did. This is just the best sashimi and the sushi rolls are to die for...try the spicy tuna and the geisha rolls. We've been back several times and I haven't stopped recommending it. Excellent food and great service.

Great venue overlooking Harrington and Argyle streets in the Rocks. Would recommend paying for a private dining room for an extra special Japanese dining experience.

The portion sizes are good and the food is very fresh. Service was excellent with the waiter explaining the dishes on arrival at the table. The selection of Saki is great and worth trying if you are not familiar with the drink. Even though the restaurant was busy there was no pressure to leave and pay once we had finished our food. Do not expect a cheap meal however.

Would definitely recommend to any sushi lovers out there!
