Why had I stayed away for years?

Friends re-introduced me to lunch at Hiro which is admittedly pricier than your average non-Japanese sushi barn, but you get tons better sushi. I have not been for dinner in many years and still have not gone again, but been twice for lunch in as many weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. "One... read more

The food at Hiro Sushi is very good with nice presentation, but the service is extremely slow and if you don't want to spend several hours having dinner then this isn't the place to go.

Arrived at 2.15 and left just after four. Thar's a lunchtime recommendation in itself! We had never lunched at Hiro before bur we were not disappointed. The creativity and flavors of the dinner menu are more than adequately represented at lunch. This is top quality Japanese food, a million miles from the "As-Much-As You-Can-Eat" varieties all over Toronto. Everything was... More

Honestly this may be the worst sushi place I've ever been to. Not that the sushi wasn't fresh. The service was slow. The sashimi was embarrassingly small I mean tiny pieces. The sushi was tiny and was average at best, but the price was not cheap. This place is just bad. I love sushi so much I'm heading to Origins... More

Love this little unassuming place. The menu says to let them know if you don't like wasabi and I wasn't sure why until the sushi arrived. The wasabi is mixed into the sushi but is addictive once you've tried it. Not a great ambiance and a little pricey but great fresh sushi.

hi ... as a treat, we took the kids to t.o. for some post-xmas shopping & dinner out. my wife raves about this place & she is right! it is the the freshest i have ever tasted. Try the SALMON TRIO. I read some negative reviews concerning pricing & longs waits. It was $350.00 for 4 people, but we left... More

My boyfriend and I are big sushi fans, but this was truly awful. We had to flag down a waitress after waiting 20min to have our order taken. When we finally started eating our dinner, we were appalled to find an inedible amount of wasabi mixed into our "spicy tuna roll" - we can both take spice, but we couldn't... More

Omakaze sushi at the counter is amazing and worth the experience. Otherwise, go someplace else, because dealing with the staff will not contribute to your experience.

My husband took me to this restaurant, knowing Sushi is one of my favorite food. (We lived in Japan for 6 months and we do go back to Japan every 3-4 years, therefore we know what good Sushi restaurants are alike.) Everything was fine, except I noticed the fish slices were extremely thin. Even though I admit the fish was... More

As others have said, this small, hole-in-the-wall restaurant is a place you might walk past. Inside, it is not elaborate or fancy (though I did love the single burning candle in the entrance area). You go to Hiro Sushi for the sushi and it is really good. Sit at the bar and order omakazi sushi. Hiro serves whatever is fresh... More
