Reviews for Shimizu Cuisine

So far, hit and miss. I had their Oyako (Chicken) Donburi last week and it was superb (5 stars), but today I had their Katsu Donburi and it was underwhelming (missing the nice fry on the pork). In both cases they were generous with the meat. My wife enjoyed the grilled squid & the natto maki ... but hated the futo maki (although this is because she's a traditionalist and doesn't like avocado in her nigiri).

I used to love this place. The quality of fish you get for the price point is still really great, and my 3-star rating is not based on the food quality, but on the portions. Like several restaurants I've gone to during this year, they've skimped on their portion size significantly. I ordered a speciality roll and a handroll and both were very small. I was pretty shocked by the handroll, especially. I understand times are tough, but I really wish places wouldn't cut corners full review

Fabulous, fresh sushi and sashimi. Some of the best I have had, both dining at the restaurant, as well as taking out to eat at home. Our Mother's Day feast was terrific, and they even had someone in the parking lot for pickup orders, so we did not even have to get out of the car. Great job, Shimizu!
