This has been our go-to sushi restaurant in Vancouver for years. The sushi is fresh, incredibly delicious and reasonably priced. Last night everything we ordered was perfect, from the tuna, eel and salmon to the yam tempura and aburi battera barbecue mackerel. The California roll with real crab was superb. We kept ordering until it was impossible to considert another... More

This local joint has been around for 20 or so years. Japanese owned which is a rarity nowadays. The sushi and sashimi are fresh and the futomaki roll is made the proper way. Service is quick and efficient. They are open for lunch and dinner but close between 230 and 530. Worth a visit and affordable. Lunch specials are a... More

Came for dinner with a friend and was happily surprised by Shiro's quality. We ordered a seaweed salad, gyoza, yam tempura, salmon sashimi and a california roll - all delicious! Will definitely return.

Cute, small restaurant with fantastic food. Check the hours before you go because they do close between lunch and dinner! Fresh sushi, warm sushi rice, real home-made wasabi. Mouth-watering, delicious, yummy goodness. Their house salad with ginger dressing - one of the best ginger dressings we've ever had! Not a sushi/seafood lover? Try the Chicken Karaage - deliciously-flavored and perfectly... More

We went to Shiro on a Monday lunchtime, and it was full, so I could tell it was popular. I'd been recommended to visit by three friends, or I might not have gone in - it doesn't look like much from the outside. But when you go in, you're made to feel welcome immediately, and offered a seat at a... More

We make a point of visiting Shiro Japanese Restaurant each time we visit Vancouver, and the meals never disappoint. The food is fast, the fish fresh, the sushi rice is warm, the wasabi is home made, and the tempura is amazing and just right, having been fried in fresh oil. Overall, wonderful. The sushi chefs and the waiting staff are... More

We went to Shiro for dinner while on vacation in Vancouver based on a recommendation from a relative. We had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated on a weeknight (around 8 PM), so we could tell this place was fairly popular. We ordered some sushi and some dishes, including teriyaki beef and a fried chicken dish (sorry I... More

Having try this Shiro today with my family. It was lunch section. The restaurant was half full. Waiters were busy and not attentive within this small store. Anyway after waiting for eight minutes, it was our turn to order lunch set and sushi combos. The food came in ten minutes. Sushi was okay and average thickness. Side special were tasteless... More

House made Wasabi! Not the pre-made paste you usually find at a sushi restaurant. Service is fantastic and everything on the menu is worth trying at least once. Get there before 6:30pm or else you will be standing in line.
