This was very expensive and the most tasteless food I think I have every had and I was in the Navy. Don't go you will regret it, I usually don't get on and review things but the owner pretty much doesnt care about his customers.

The food, service and ambiance were all excellent. Staff seems very oriented to creating a pleasurable customer experience. Print coupon before dining to create significant savings. Meal was delicious, and a very good value. Kids will especially enjoy the preparation and presentation.

Bad environment, smells oils, everything looks like dirty. The guioza was burned and oiled. Unfortunately would never come back, had an awful time!

My husband, mother-in-law, and I brought our now 13 year old for her birthday. We love Shi Chi and have been coming here for special occasions for years. This time we noticed that the crowd was very small for a Saturday - especially since it was Sweetest Day - and there were very few chefs working. We had an Entertainment... More

Let me start by saying this used to be our favorite Japanese Hibachi restaurant in the greater Columbus area for 15 years, coming fairly often with family and friends. I know in general that hibachi restaurants are cliches with onion volcanoes, etc, but this establishment kept the show to a minimum and focused on well prepared food at somewhat reasonable... More

Having been a loyal customer for many years, I have been surprised and disappointed in the declining level of service received at what was once a great place to visit for a business lunch. The dwindling crowd tells the story. Must hire better servers / cooks and hold them accountable for delivering the highest level of service, anything less than... More

Recently dined with a small group midweek, and everyone seemed to enjoy their food. Service was good, but not great. The waitress admitted to being new, but seemed well trained. The chef was good, but nothing extraordinary. Most of us had the kobe beef, which was the best entree option of those we tried. All of the other courses were... More

This little restaurant is tucked in beside trader Joe's on sawmill. The dining room was clean and we were promptly seated. The service was on point. I think the food was just as good as local favorite house of Japan. My chicken and shrimp were cooked well and my wife's steak was perfect. My only complaint would be they have... More

We typically eat at one of the other Japanese steakhouses, but decided to give this one a try as we had an Entertainment coupon. We had to wait a few minutes to get seated, but not too long. Once we were seated, though, it took awhile for a server to come take our orders. When someone did finally come along,... More
