Amazing food but really slow service
The spicy tuna makimono roll and salmon sashimi were great. The yellowtail was okay.
Food was delicious! We had salmon & konbu onigiri, and unagi sashimi.
Shiki is a small, intimate restaurant with superb food and an excellent sake list. Service is very friendly and helpful though a tad slow at times.
great sushi and great service. two thumbs up!
The food was good - autentic Japanese. The service was perfect. I do not like a basement, but this restaurant was as nice as it could be in a basement. the location is great.
Shiki has wonderful service and excellent fresh vegetables and seafood. Loved my meal.
The lunch Chirashi was good but the amount of fish was minuscule.
Great food and services!
Wow! What a delicious meal. I highly recommend this welcoming, tasteful and peaceful restaurant. Superb.
Very authentic food and service was great. I ordered something I had never tried before and the waiter gave me tips on how to best enjoy it!
Good service, good food, nice atmosphere and decor. I'd love to come again and try some more dishes.
It’s a great place with friendly staff and yummy food. I plan to go again.
The food was delicious, as was the sake. Great-tasting ginger dressing with a generously-sized garden salad, fresh and tasty tuna roll. The tempura was one of the top tempura dishes I've ever had: perfectly fresh and crisp batter on the shrimp and vegetables with a delicious dipping sauce. The vibe was bright, comforting, and happy. Quite crowded and a popular place on a Thursday night. Attentive and polite staff. Only drawback is that it got very loud; hard to hear your dinner partners talk.
delicious food great customer service
Shiki is a hidden gem!
The friend I brought here described the cuisine as "authentic Japanese as possible outside Japan". The service was nice, food really satisfying.
Welcoming staff, pleasant atmosphere to enjoy conversation over lunch. Nice lounge music in the background and attentive service. Sashimi, miso soup, and seaweed salad all delicious. First time trying, and will definitely go back.
Authentic look, feel, and taste. Cozy little restaurant a la Japan.
Absolutely delicious, good mix on traditional Japanese plates, quick service, friendly and welcoming environment
Great food, service and cozy. More authentic vs. Americanized Japanese. I'll be going back!
Excellent food, very friendly servers. Unfortunately the meal (just sushi) took over 30 min to come out. They were very nice, but don’t expect a quick meal!
I had the Ikameshi, which was delicious. Portions are on the small side for dinner, otherwise, a really pleasant and relaxing dining experience.
Food was solid (unagi nigiri and takoyaki were the best), but it was hard to get service's attention throughout the meal.
Thanks, we really enjoyed dinner at Shiki. I love that you serve water without ice. The maki rolls were very fresh and delicious, as was the tofu. We also had the fresh rolls that could have been better with some kind of sauce.
The food was delicious and the service was great!
Despite being a busy evening with a full restaurant, the customer service was great, and the waitress was very friendly. Nice, light and delicious meal.
Portions were small but fine given it's an expensive place. Cashier accidentally didn't take off my $15 from the bill initially so I had to return to the restaurant to get credited, but not a huge deal.
I had never been to Shiki. I have been thinking about sushi and wanting to really like it. I don't always know what to order. The server gave me some great advice, and I had a truly wonderful meal and experience! I love them!
Delicious, authentic Japanese food. Thank you for introducing us!
Shiki was the best Japanese restaurant I've ever been to! The sushi and sake were exceptional.

Great service, great maki!!
Great little underground spot!
Really great place, will return again! One of the FEW that welcomed Nift without problem.
My sister and I enjoyed Shiki very much. They had different Toro options as their special tonight, we ordered two pieces of nigiri each. Since it was cold outside we decided to go with the udon, which hit the spot. The wait staff was very friendly and the food came out in good time. Overall a great experience.
We had a nice meal here. The yellowtail and spice salmon maki were delightful, vegetable tempura also tasty if a little undersized. Good service.
Food quality and service were great!
That was beautiful, delicious.. fantastic experience I will be back!
The place was nice, the soups and sushi great! And the service was good. In general, it was a great experience!
Delicious, beautiful presentation, and good service. Wonderful experience.
Not your usual Japanese place; lots of small plates, fresh fish. Sticky rice wrapped in squid, winter odeng special, nice futomaki rolls. Good stuff!
The appetizers, sushi + dishes were all super delicious + tasted very fresh. Our waiters were also very friendly + helpful with our order. The food was also very reasonably priced. We will be back!
Very good food and friendly service
Solid food for the pricing.
I had the Matsu (Pine) Kaiseki lunch and it was great, all the food was perfectly prepared. There were some old favorites (tempura, sashimi, udon) and some new surprises like the egg custard with seafood and baby octopus.
Very friendly staff and great tempura!
Very kind servers very good food
Great food and service
We really enjoyed the restaurant!
Great small tapas-style Japanese food. Everything we ordered was delicious and it was very reasonably priced! Packed with locals, even on a Sunday night.
It was great!
Happy to have chosen this NIFT as I never knew that this restaurant was there. Very nice ambience, gracious service, very fresh food. Looking forward to going there again.
Shiki is an awesome standard for always fresh, always tasty sushi in Coolidge Corner.
This is cool and i get to learn about new places.
Delicious food! I love that Shiki has dishes I've never seen at other Japanese restaurants. The broiled squid was our favorite. Service was fantastic and we had a wonderful experience.
Quality food and quick service.
Delicious food and excellent service from Fred — thanks so much! 5 stars!
