    I was not impressed. Service was gruff, the decor was Spartan and the food was incredibly overpriced. The quality of the food, however, was good.

      You know what, Sott, I think they must handed you a different menu.

      I was at Shin last week and I was impressed by the quality and freshness of the fish. The Rainbow roll (which is usually my measure of how expensive a sushi place is) was for $9. That's around average or even slightly below. Ordered a toro sashimi for $12, tasty but not really worth it.

      Decor is basic and service was ok.

      Their selection of specialty rolls is limited, tried a futomaki that didn't score too high with us.

      Still, I liked the quality of the ingredients and the price beats amura.

      Totally loved it. They use REAL crab in all of their rolls and dishes!

        Excellent. Worth a trip.
