I saw some other review from awhile back referring to slow service. I always give the benefit of the doubt and decided to try it out. I am sad to confirm that they were correct. First, the good part is that the staff were all very kind and friendly. Unfortunately it didn't make up for the poor service. It was... More

This is our new favorite sushi place. We've been going for years to place in south elgin by caputo's but recently learned about this place and gave it a try. We're glad we tried as this is miles ahead of anything else in the area. The prices are reasonable and the selection is almost overwhelming. Great decor as well.

My high school aged son went here with a friend recently and they sat for 1.5 hours waiting for their meal. Finally, they paid for their drinks and left. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Wow worst service ever. Never to return. Appetizer one hour after we ordered. Food was cold, server was indifferent.

We visited the east St. Charles location. We had not been to this restaurant since it changed ownership. In the past, it had been one of our favorite places for sushi. However, last night it appeared as though there was only one older man seating people and waiting on all the tables. There was a large group in the front... More

A group of our friends went hiking. After we finished, we stopped by Shima Sushi. I ordered bento box. The food is excellent and very tasty. We heard Mushroom Soup is very good. Some of my friends had it and they like it. In general, we all like the food. It is a very quiet setting and good for friends... More

Service is terrible!!! We've been here for over an hour, and still no luck. The sushi we had was very good, however, the order was messed up. The waitress sadly moves with the speed of a tired government worker. We live near by and could frequent the place, we will not. 90 minutes later...still waiting. Skip it

I enjoy every kind of food here. Especially, shrimp tempura is excellent. Of course every sushi is so tasty !!! You can take out food home, when you can not eat everything.

We have been to every sushi restaurant in the Tri-City area, and then some. At one time or another, each one has let us down either through quality, service or both. We were in desperate need for a new regular sushi spot. Shima's Sushi is that place. Hands down, the best sushi we've had in the area. It is on... More
