“Fresh sushi, a Miami institution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

I have been visiting Shibui since the 1980's. It was very hard during that decade to find decent Sushi in Miami, the availability of good sushi or any kind of sushi restaurants, for that matter, was very limited. Miami was behind cities like Houston or New York on this score. We dine in or order take out at Shibui at least twice per month. They have been able to maintain quality over all these years. We have heard that ownership has changed several times, but they have maintained the quality of their fish and seafood, something primordial in a Sushi restaurant. I hope they continue this excellence in the future.

“Fantastic Fresh Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Shibui has been around for many years. It's a staple in the Miami sushi scene.
Decor: Nothing special but has regular table seating down stairs, traditional (floor) seating upstairs and also sushi bar seating. Reservations are highly recommended.
Food: Fantastic and always fresh. Extensive rolls menu with many original creations! I've never had anything there that I didn't like. Really a wonderful place to have dinner.
Some of the best sushi I've had in Miami!!!

“Our favorite sushi in Miami”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

We've sampled dozens of sushi restaurants in Miami, but no one comes close to Shibui.

The service is exceptional, the sushi is always fresh, and the homemade soy sauce is delicious. Also, you can order affordable carafes of decent red wine ($9 for half liter, slightly more for the full liter).

Try the Bagel Roll and the Mexican Roll...they are truly fantastic.

After your meal, try some frozen yogurt at Top That Yogurt (right next door).
