“Authentic Japanese”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

Great high-class dining. More than a sushi place. Great pork katsu, wonderful spicy shrimp, fine noodle dishes. beautiful desserts. and THEN there's the sushi. Only "true" Japanese in town.

“The real thing, best sushi in Lakeland”
Reviewed 10 July 2011

I've been to Shingetsu five or six times now. The owner is Japanese but has lived in the US most of her life. When I visit Lakeland it's on the top of my list for east Asian food If you're looking for cheap sushi, this isn't the place for you. This is high quality stuff---your body is going to love you for it.

One thing I love about Shingetsu is that they get most things right. The salads, soups, appetizers, sashimi, sushi, most of it is done very well. Last visit I started with miso soup, which was OK, probably not their best soup. But it got better: gyoza pork dumplings (delicious!), sashimi with yummy tuna and salmon, followed by red dragon roll (spicy and crunchy, sooooo good). I keep saying I'm going to order new things every time, but I love the gyoza and sashimi so much it's taking awhile to get through the menu.

If you're used to sushi from one of those nasty Chinese buffet places, just once go to this place and treat yourself to the real thing.

“My Favorite Sushi”
Reviewed 26 April 2009

Shingetsu is like a little gem in Lakeland. Relaxed atmosphere with a woman sushi chef/owner. Her name is Kay and is quite a hoot. The dinner i had was great and it's always nice to watch your sushi being made. Had a great evening out.
