Shibui Japanese Restaurant has some of the best Sushi rolls in South Florida. There make original rolls that you can eat anywhere else. Everyone else knows how good Shibui is, so reservations are recommended! It's always busy, but so worth the wait. The food is delicious, from the appetizers to the desserts. They also have options for people who don't like to eat sushi or raw fish.

I just adore eating sushi and this is one of my favorite places to go for a bit of those wonderful freshly rolled delicacies...there is no question in my mind that everything we've had is fresh as could be. To name all the items we have when we go there are would take forever so I?ll just mention a few....Eel rolls, Salmon rolls, California rolls, Volcanoes, Dynamite rolls, Sashimi, various fresh raw fish rolls of every variety, the names escape me now, but suffice to say the variety is always amazing and the presentation very appealing?There was also different flavors of Wasabi and low sodium soy sauce for those who have to watch their salt intake. The service is always friendly and fast..Oh and the Miso soup is just perfect!
Thumbs up!

PROS: Great fresh tasting exotic Japanese specialties
CONS: None

We eat there often. Each time is a little less satisfying. I guess that's why most of the accolades and awards hanging on the walls are from the last millennium. It's like the old Tarus in the Grove. Good food, good company, feels like it hasn't been cleaned since it was built. Reservations suggested but not necessarily honored. Our reservation for 5 two nights ago was written incorrectly by the manager. According to him we were 15 minutes late and unseatable even though the restaurant was completely empty. We offered to leave and never come back. He showed us the door. So from now on we'll spend our money where its appreciated. And we suggest you should do the same.

Pros: Food is generally good

Cons: Management treats customers like the dining room's dirt

I love Shibui. I suggest everyone try the spicy crab sushi. The appetizers are excellent, the cooked food is very good.
The servers are attentive, and many have been there for years and years.
I have never had to send anything back in all my visits to Shibui, and there is always something different to try because the menu is quite extensive.
The place is a little small, though it is very warm.
This Japanese restaurant is among the best in Miami, and they have won awards recently as you can see in the waiting area in the front of the restaurant.

I recently had the chance to have some sushi at a local Japanese restaurant in the Kendall area of Miami and was pleasantly surprised. The interior design is wonderful. Wooden decor and staircases like you would imagine a quant home in Japan might look like, while customers sitting upstairs on a cushion-like seat enjoy their dinner. Food was great the only drawback I would say is how small this place is. You can imagine my surprise when I arrived and found out it's recommended you make reservations. Other than that it was a decent place to have some great sushi and drinks.

Cons: Somewhat small and gets filled quickly

my first (and last) time I went here was quite the experience.
it was about 3 years ago since I have been to this place, and how funny that things had not changed since.
when we got there the parking was very packed, the person I came with drove a range rover so lets just say she was lucky she didn't crash into anyone.

I forget if we had reservations, but i do remember waiting. At first I was enamored with the look of the restaurant; very traditional japanese dojo like setting. we were on the second floor which was pretty cool ..if you like sitting on the floor but w/e.

the waitress we had was the b*tch from hell. she not only ignored us half of the night, she hardly gave refills and our green tea was cold by the time it reached out table. I did NOT like the sushi. granted it was my first time trying sushi, it had a very repugnant taste and its pretty pricey compared to better sushi places (akashi for one)

oh lest you not forget that if you don't tip full percent for thier AWFUL service you may get hunted down, like i did. I felt she did a very bad job as a waiter and she had the audacity to call me out for tipping her low. I should have not even bothered to even tip her in the first place.

don't waste your money. just cause its pretty doesn't mean its good.

Cons: parking, service, food, waiters, EVERYTHING

I can't believe no one has mentioned the Macerena roll! Love this place. I was born and raised in Miami and have been going to Shibui for over 15 years!!! Nothing compares.

After our family recommended it, my wife and I went on 4/19/08. We immediately noticed the poor hygiene in the kitchen through a screen back door as we were struggling to find parking. We entered and I approached the host. I asked him if we could get a table. His response was that I had to wait over 2 hours! I asked him if there was anything that could be done. He told me no. Shocked I asked again and again he said no. He did not even try to accomodate us at a bar or anything. At that point I decided to leave and that is when I noticed a hand written sign taped to the door that said ""Hold Your Breath"". I did not get it until I stepped outside and there was an overwhelming feces-like stench. Obviously it was someone trying to be funny, but the stench was there. Thai Cafe in Miami Lakes or even Benihana is a much better choice for sushi.

I live around the area and have been there a lot but the last 2 times the sushi was bad (tuna). The roll fell apart and the tuna had a fishey smell. I would not tell my friends about this place. I think it is over rated and over price. If you want bad sushi go there.

We moved to Miami from New York a couple of years ago and we are sushi lovers, after going to countless sushis restaurants from South Beach to Aventura we were so happy to have found Shibui. The sushi has always been fantastic and I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a table if I made a reservation. Everyone that I have recommended Shibui to have thanked me.

We went to Shibui last night, expecting the food to be delicious since it had been highly recommended. We had reservations for 8:15pm and had to wait almost 40 min for a table, finally when they sat us down we had till wait till almost 10pm to order our drinks. Finally after waiting for almost an hr and a half they bring us our food. I have gone to eat sushi all around Miami and the sushi rolls here were completely miniscule and the fish was not fresh, it had a fishy scent. The avocado on the dragon roll that was ordered was underripe and brown from sitting out for too long. Everything was overpriced and the quality of the food was below average, the only thing that was worth it was the japanese soda. Dont make the same mistake we did, dont go to Shibui.

The sushi is good, address is wrong (it is on 102), parking is not enough and the second floor it's romantic.

I've been coming to this restuarant for almost 9 years. I love sushi and I have tried so many sushi restaurants. I do have favorites...but Shibui will almost be dear to my heart! It was the first sushi restaurant I tried and honestly the best! Their tuna tataki is the best! Their dragon rolls and spider rolls are exceptional! And just about anything you try from the menu will leave a smile on your face and leave you feeling muy caliente (very hot)! And since I love green iced tea thanks to someone who first introduced me to this place....their green iced tea is unique and tasty!

My husband and me have been coming to Shibui for 5 years now and we have to say that we have had the best sushi experience each and everytime. Their rolls are amazing. We have tried Beef Yukke and Dragon rolls at other restaurants but they don't compare to Shibui's. They have also added new innovative rolls such as the Spicy Tuna Sandwich and Mexican roll.. Awesome!! The restaurant is cozy, the upstairs dining is a must and their service is great. If Sushi is what you want you need to go to Shibui!!

I have been to many sushi places and this one being around the corner from my home, I thought would be great because it has been there for a very long time. I didn't find anything special about there food. I would rather go to Benihana for sushi before I'd go back. And for all you can eat sushi, Taisho is Definitely worth a try..

shibui is THE place for sushi and other japanese fare. from the minute you walk in the door, you are greeted by staff who are unfailingly pleasant, attentive and accommodating. as for the food, the louisiana rolls alone will keep me going back forever. you can have your choice of atmosphere all in one restaurant...downstairs is perfect for large groups with or without kids, the floor seating upstairs is perfect for an intimate date or double-date, and the sushi bar is a perfect place to take the kids or sit by yourself. there's even a t.v. and did i say that the food is great? it is. neither i nor anyone i've ever gone with has been disappointed in anything we've ever ordered and i've been a lot! it's a little pricey, but well worth it if you don't mind paying a little more for quality.

I've been dining at Shibui's for about 3 years now. Of course a friend recommended the restaurant since I would have never found it. I've tried sushi from Miami to Ft. Lauderdale and I always come back to Shibui's, my favorite is the Caliente roll, and tuna tataki, with a good saporro and let's not forget the fried cheesecake. Caliente rolls can be imitated but once you try Shibui's you will never go anywhere else. It is well worth the drive.
