Shin's never let's me down. Three TV's for the sports lover, a beer bar and excellent service. I'm never dissapointed and always leave with a smile (even without having drunk some sake). The crew has always been professional, respectful and attentive. Great place for a...More

Friendly service, good food, amazingly affordable, all in a great college town. We had a Dragon roll very fresh and delicious and Udon soup. Really good.

This was the only reasonably priced sushi place open in town when we arrived at 2:30pm. We had three rolls: the SLO, Albacore delight, and BSCR. So good all of them and friendly service!

This place was packed when I was here. A co-worker and I were seated at the bar. The wait staff was super busy so it took some time for a waiter to take our order. The sushi was pretty good and worth the wait.

I love sushi and I love this place. Great atmosphere, especially if it's someone's birthday. Food is delicious for the price. Only drawback is how long it can take sometimes, but it's sushi and so that's expected

Everyone seems to rave about the sushi. But we were eating a late dinner and we were craving noodle soup so we ended up here after wandering around. We had udon, which was limited in selection but was fine for us. The place is just...More
