This was our 2nd visit. The sushi was awesome, again. I find some of their sushi combos unique. The Green Turtle: spicy & crunchy w the slightly sweet mango sauce was very good. The habachi steak & shrimp was very good, the chicken only ok. The soup & tempura is similar to other places. The tea is sold by the... More

Good to very good sushi and tempura. Their salad dressing is to die for! There's not much room in this restaurant so I don't recommend for large groups. Little kids aren't going to be interested in it and are too noisy for this environment.

I came here with my daughter for my birthday luncheon. The salad was so good. I never had a salad from a sushi restaurant tasting this good before. And we had split two different sushi rolls ....both very good. Our waitress was the same waitress we have every time we go - she's very courteous and kind. I would definitely... More

I liked the presentation of the food and the staff was friendly. The food was good, but not excellent. The selection of saki (spelling?) was good and the prices for drinks were fine. The price of food was a little high, but not completey outrageous.. I just wish the portions had been a bit bigger for what we paid. My... More

The food is consistently good, but the attitude of the hostess and the outrageous prices have kept us and several of our friends from returning. Shu's Sushi is a much better choice!

Met a girlfriend here for lunch because the location was conveniently half way between our homes. And it did not disappoint either of us. We ordered the pork dumplings appetizer, and 5 different sushi rolls. They were all wonderfully tasty, with the Alien's Feet being the favorite. Nice atmosphere.....our waitress gave us great service, and made us feel very comfortable... More

Had friends in from Oakland, CA & stumbled upon this restaurant when looking for someplace to eat in Oswego. Yelp gave it good reviews, so we stopped in. The presentation of the food is incredible, which matches the deliciousness of the dishes. Very extensive menu makes it hard to decide, but easy to please all palates. You won't be disappointed.

You must try their dragon, Godzilla and the tango dragon rolls! The tempura is so light and crispy. The restaurant is a bit small but worth the wait.

New to the area, and too tired to explore, I ordered a hibachi style dinner to be delivered. The food was delicious, hot and delivered within their promised time frame.
