Fresh wasabi is the best wasabi.

For dinner I ordered a Takoyaki (deep-fried octopus balls), a plate of Special Assorted Sushi (Shrimp California Roll and a selection of Salmon, Tuna, Surf Clam, Yellow Tail, Squid, Octopus, and Shrimp Nigiri), and the daily special of Tuna Karaage. The Takoyaki came first. This tasted better than... read more

Not sure what the big deal is with Shiro's. Although it's close to the Manor Guest House the service is extremely slow and I've had better Sushi elsewhere. Not sure I'm going to go back. And the staff speaks very little English, so if you are confused by menu items… oh well.

We discovered Shiro about 15 years ago and it remains the best sushi I've ever had. Miss seeing Shiro behind the sushi bar, but it's still the best in town.

I tried Shiro sushi a couple of weeks ago and had a tremendously great meal! I originally found it by checking out a google map of Cambie Street in Vancouver and there it was. A quick check ot Tripadvisor reviews told me I had to try this place, and, OH MY.... previous reviews were spot on! Stopped by again today... More

Never would have known about Shiro but a friend who used to live here recommended it. They are on Cambie Street in a little strip mall. There is limited parking in front. Great atmosphere! Smaller restaurant and the tables are pretty close together, however the sushi was excellent and very fresh. In fact everything was terrific. Will be back!

Our annual trip to Vancouver would not be the same without the trip to Shiro. This year was no exception, and the food did not disappoint. We note that it was even busier than before. The sushi was amazing as ever (e.g. the Shiro roll), the tempura fresh, and the melt-in-your-mouth sashimi was amazing. Highly recommended.

This small sushi restaurant was suggested to us and everyone agreed, even the very fussy and particular sushi eaters in our group, that everything we ordered was excellent and very fresh. Lots of variety. There are also some menu offerings that were excellent for the non sushi eaters in our group. Prices were very reasonable. We came away happy and... More

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
