Sushi
Nestled in the canyons of Bel Air, SHU is a dining experience like no other - a fusion of Japanese, Italian and Latin flavors and influences. The menu features traditional dishes as well as signature offerings, inspired by Giacomino Drago’s love of blending Japanese, Italian and Latin cuisines. SHU’s environment is well-suited to singles, couples and families. The bar seats up to ten people and there is a special booth that seats six people. Private dinning room is available to accommodate up to 12 guests. Signature dishes included halibut carpaccio with sun-dried tomato, Kobe Beef sashimi and albacore sashimi with shaved truffles.

We have been coming Shu for years, ever since the Drago Group took over.
I can honestly say it has to be among the 4 or 5 best in all of LA.
Reservations are a must!

It's certainly not cheap, but it is well worth it. Specials and sashimi plates are the way to go. Uber fresh seafood of the highest quality, paired with spot on, unique flavor profiles makes this restaurants one of the best in the city. I love this place!

I ordered several dishes and each were outstanding. Service was very good... efficient. I tend to prefer more space around me when eating however the food and service is worth the slightly cramped space.

The service is amateurish and neglectful. It’s like the wait staff’s first day - every day! I eat here once a month for its fantastic food. And the service never gets any better!

It is good and it is consistent. The fish is fresh and their preparations are delicious and artistic... Its not inexpensive but it is one of the better upscale sushi spots in town. The only minor negative is that it is a small space, so it is a bit loud and tables are close to eachother...

I took a dear friend to Shu for his birthday. A side by side banquette table awaited us. The staff couldn’t have been nicer. Our waitress was Shedara (sp) who is always a doll. Service was perfectly attentive.

The food as usual was fantastic. We especially enjoyed the soft shell crab, tempura oysters and artichoke hearts of palm salad.

I have been to this restaurant many times when it was much busier but, although the restaurant was less than half full, the service was impossible. We had to request water 3 times, the server took over 25 minute to come take our order, he was no where to be seen when we needed to have him fix the bill which had 2 items that we did not order.
Overall, a very frustrating meal.
