Review: I went to Shojin the other night for the first time. I currently live in NYC and there is no restaurant there that competes with Shojin!! The service was impeccable - the waitstaff was incredibly attentive and kind, and made sure we were okay during each course without being overbearing. They were even so polite and patient with a couple at the table net to us who were very rude and obnoxious. The food is fantastic as well - I partook in the special Christmas menu which was being offered that evening. Each course - and there were 7!!! - was so unique and so delicious, I finished all 7 courses without a problem!! The presentation was beautiful and it was obvious that the chefs take great care to plate each course! The combination of the delectable and unique food, the attentive and polite waitstaff, and the eyecatching presentation all make Shojin an incredible restaurant that I will frequent on all my future trips to LA!
