The freshest of fish, very good service, and the occasional special keep this restaurant lively. I could go everyday, and not just for sushi. Their cooked dishes are generous in size and service is attentive. Of course, the sushi is fantastic.

Shunka was AWESOME. It's a small cozy place with great attention to the customer. I went on the earlier side of dinner, so it was practically a 1:1 ratio between the staff and customers. Each roll was handmade upon order with great attention to detail....More
