I spoke with our waitress before I ordered to make sure it was clear I didn’t eat anything from an animal. She understood and cautioned me against some of the vegetable dishes because they had bonito flakes in the batter or sauce. (That fried tofu,...More

After many years of going to shige, I'm still impressed at how he manages to find the selection of fresh fish. You'll see fish here not found anywhere, and he changes and updates the selection daily. If you're into real sushi this is the only...More

Shige is old school, all about fish. You want the real taste of Japan then you need to try his place a few times. You might notice a lot of Japanese customers for good reason. I lived in Japan for 9 years and I remember...More

Visited this small sushi restaurant. The menu is very extensive. I might be used to sushi that has a lot more flavors but, if you looking for a good place to eat in Carmichael I would recommend it.

Freshest fish in Carmichael. Shige has been a sushi chef for several decades and taught many of Sacramento's chefs.

I'm just not used to chicken teriyaki served cold with sauce on top. The fish is good, nothing special, but the service is super slow. It's a tiny place, there's no reason to be this slow.

For years, we enjoyed Shige's sushi on Howe Ave., then I moved my office, then he moved & we lost touch. Good friends told us where he moved ad we've been going regularly the past year+. He gets most of his fish from Japan and...More

Real Sushi, not a sushi roll house. The owner works the sushi bar himself. He has never given me anything that was not absolutely delicious.
