This seems to be a popular restaurant with Hibachi and a extensive sushi menu. It is packed at 8:00pm. Service while friendly is haphazard with one server getting your drinks and a second server to take your order and this would work if the second server checked your table after a 20 minute wait before being flagged down to take...

This place has become a favorite for sushi in lafayette due to the service and the quality of the food. This place has several great rolls with fish combos that are unique in the area. Overall, the food cannot be beat.

This was our third trip to Shinto on one of our many visits to our daughter and son-in-law. Shinto offers hibachi and sushi in a friendly, casual atmosphere. Reasonably priced for top grade dining. Everything is fresh and well presented. If you love a wide variety of unique rolls and sushi---this is the place! Full bar with well made cocktails,... More

Great sushi. We love eating out at great restaurants and this is a good one from the steaming hot towels they give you to wipe your hands (smells amazing too) to the taste and presentation. Some of the best sushi I've ever had. Always a great experience.

LSU Champ rolls are the best! The hibatchi is really good also. Just be very careful when walking on the tile floor with no grip on shoe soles, it's very slippery!

Good sushi a little on the priced side but the restaurant is outdated and feels dirty. The staff is friendly and the place is usually packed. I have eaten here a few times and have also ordered take out.

if you are looking for great service with great sushi, Shinto is the place. The service is always good and works hard to get your order out quickly. i know they have hibachi; however, I have never tried. My family and I like their specialty rolls....especially the Hailey Roll and LSU Champ Roll.....plenty to choose from but these are a... More

They add tip to everyone's bill no matter the number of people. The soup and salad was nasty the rest of food was ok.

Must try: Sunrise/Sunset/LSU/Volcano rolls Filet & Kobe Beef Hibachi are THE BEST!! Depends on what time & day you go, the wait can be horrible. But the food is so worth the wait!! My daughter has selected this restaurant for the past 7 years for her birthday meal. The staff are very friendly & attentive!! Definitely the best Japanese restaurant... More

This is not a fancy restaurant but the wait is short and their hibachi grill is very good, you have the option to take a regular table and get smaller portions and a wider variety and save some money. Consider trying their volcano sushi. Most the dishes I tried were good or very good. By skipping hibachi you can save... More
