Adelaide’s Shiki is a favourite among locals and visitors for its traditional and fresh take on Japanese Cuisine served in its inviting restaurant, located on the Upper Lobby of the luxurious five-star InterContinental Adelaide.

For starters, the sashimi selection or the tempura soft shell mud carb are sensational selections. Some of Shiki’s popular dishes include letting us choose for you with our range of set menu selections such as the Kayki which includes lobster tails infused with truffle butter or the Hanabi which includes seared Mt Gambier beef tenderloin steak with fried garlic and green peppercorns.

Shiki's Japanese green tea ice-cream with red bean sauce is the perfect dessert with which to finish your meal.

Overall, we had a wonderful time. There were some mistakes with my order as I wanted to try the meals with the matching soju instead we were given the matching wine! Also, we ordered a different meal to the one which was served. We were not too fussed but in my perspective, this should not have happened especially to a restaurant of this caliber! In addition, I found plastic in my entree which surprised me.

Shiki is one of our favorite restaurants in Adelaide, as we love the friendly service and attention to detail in the cooking, which makes the high quality ingredients shine. Despite Shiki being quite pricey, the consistency of the food and service means my husband and I are frequent customers. Having said this, our recent experience was rather disappointing. The ingredients were still high quality and the service was as fantastic as ever, but the cooking of the food left a bit to be desired. We have become used to the dishes being cooked to perfection, but this time the food was either under cooked or over cooked. We understand that restaurants can have bad days, so we will not let this experience deter us and we will return to Shiki to hopefully make up for this meal. Perhaps the chef being new played a part, and further training using the griddle is required.

As always, the food at Shiki was outstanding, I actually really enjoyed the sashimi this time (I'm not normally a fan of raw fish but found that for some reason this time, I really took to it).
My wife and I haven't been here year for two years, so the place has changed a bit. Our only real criticism was that the chefs weren't as entertaining as they were the last couple of time were were there, where they really showed off their knife skills and they were almost acrobatic with the utensils. This time, it was just routine to them and nothing really out of the ordinary.
That said, it was fantastic food, great service from the staff, great atmosphere and we will definitely be going back.

This is one of a number of times we have visited the Shiki restaurant. We love it! There are a good amount of options to choose from. The food was to die for! We chose the Hanabi banquet - more than enough and a great variety of both seafood and meat. The Wagyu steak was one of the best I have eaten and the tempura prawns were a delight.
The chef cooking in front of us was engaging and fun. We had a group of eight ranging from 17 years old to 51 and everyone had a great time. The waiting staff were prompt and very friendly - we were never out of a drink and the changeover of plates etc. was quick and efficient.
I would highly recommend this restaurant. Thanks for a memorable night!

+ Very good food prepared right in front of you
+ Quiet entertaining to watch the skilled chefs
- Seated very close next to other guests, therefore lack of privacy. Ask for a separate table for important conversations, you'll miss out on the kitchen show though
- Sitting right next to where the food is prepared means your clothes smell of kitchen fumes a little after dinner
- Even though the food was good and plenty I had expected a little more creativity for the $$

Absolutely awful. 1. They couldn't find my reservation. 2. Food is below average. It is no better than an average hibachi restaurant in any suburban town in America. (I am American, so that's my vantage point). 3. The value was awful. $200 for a terrible meal. I read the reviews and they are totally off base.

Great experience, we don’t eat a lot of seafood though, we went with a set menu which didn’t have any seafood but there also wasn’t a lot of tepanyaki style food in the end.

Probably would have been better to choose individual items off the menu.

While the food was outstanding but a little expensive I was disappointed with the service. My guest was served a glass of orange juice with blood on the glass from the waiter’s cut finger. I ordered a Hendricks Gin with a slice of cucumber and Tonic. It came with lime instead of cucumber. A 5 star restaurant should know better than that.

Definitely a place for that special occasion due to the pricing point of the food & wine - a little on the expensive side. Food is very fresh & the flavours are awesome.Service was very good.One of our favourite places to dine for special occasions.Unfortunately the dress code has dropped considerably - a sign of the times I guess!!
