We had three different rolls and all three were wonderful. I would go for the food and expect poor service.

This restaurant was referred to me and we were not disappointed!We arrived shortly after they opened and it was already half full. We ordered tons of sushi, and 1 shrimp hibachi plate. We were all very happy with the meal and service. At one point we noticed there was a wait to be seated....on a Sunday night.

Stopped in for a quick meal. Delicious sushi and fairly priced along with attentive service. Our waters were refilled quickly and we were checked on often. I definitely plan on going back to try some other rolls!

This is one of the best places for sushi in Athens with a unique atmosphere. It tends to be crowded on the weekends, so plan accordingly. Lots of sushi choices as well as other entrees. I've never been disappointed here!

I loved my shrimp tempora rolls but when I asked for a tiny bit of jalepeno pieces i was charged 4 dollars for a few slivers. I haven't been to karaoke but I have friends who love to go there because they do private rooms so it is just you and your friends.

If you enjoy sushi, then this is the place for you. They have a huge menu for sushi lovers. Everything our group tried was delicious. If you don't like sushi, never fear because they have wonderful hibachi style food as well. I had the grilled shims dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great staff too.

I had a great experience recently at Shokitini. I took my daughter and her beau. Loved the miso soup and the sushi was great. Always worried this far inland, but very fresh and delicious. Atmosphere is lively and crowded, but only had to wait 15 minutes on a weekend night. Would definitely try it again.

Decent sushi, service ok- I hate seeing servers on their phone during dinner service- unprofessional. The MOD was rude and salty, her personality and lack of guest service left something to be desired. Manager and servers need to go somewhere other than out front to smoke cigarettes; also they need to wash their hands after said cigarettes-food safety issue.

Very good sushi. Very good server. Nice cocktails. Naturally the place had many students and parents, and was upbeat. The actual atmosphere though, due to wear and tear (maybe too many big parties and too little care by the owners) is a little sad when you really look at it. Specifically the area toward the back of the place on... More

Rented a karaoke room for about 8 people. Took forever to get drinks, mine and my husbands food was cold, they gave me the wrong rice and I have to ask 3 times to get the kind I ordered. At least that was hot when I got it. For the money we spent I was pretty disappointed in the food.
