Fresh and tasty with a hip feel to the place, this is always busy. Go on Tuesday and collect double diner points towards a free meal.

Shimizu has an extensive menu, I particularly like the spicy edamame and the custom rolls. Nice sashimi salad and bento boxes as well. The staff is always welcoming and helpful and we are never disappointed - no matter what we order.
