Great Sushi! Vibrant Place!

Good sushi, great selection! The place is typically extremely crowded. Make sure you have a reservation. Service is ok.

Hiro Sakao is one of my favourites restaurants in Erlangen. They have a really good shushi, made on time. Young people are working on this restaurant and they are very nice. Good quality. It is expensive if you consider other alternatives and you need reserve table. When restaurant is full takes timw to receive your order but the give you... More

Greetings, This place is an excellent place to get really good Japanese food and sushi. The only trouble is that it's usually crowded and noisy. Don't expect to get seated during normal meal times without a reservation. Staff seem to be nice enough. I consider it somewhat on the expensive side but you get really good food for the price....

California-grade sushi! Unfortunately, I have not yet been to Japan, but have had a lot of sushi in California and Germany (Munich and Duesseldorf), and this place beats most others for quality, freshness, service and taste. Went for a business meal with important customer, had a great meal. They offer a very good and broad choice of dishes so even... More

If you are in Erlangen and looking for sushi this is the place to be. They offer the best sushi in town mixed with some other traditional Japanese dishes if someone doesn't like sushi who is joining.

My first time here at Hiro Sakao!! My colleagues insisted on going but we needed to book a table for 8 persons, as it was last minute we had a 2 hour slot, that was plenty of time. Extremely busy but the staff were very capable of dealing with it. Most important, the food was delicious, great variety, fresh and... More

Love it. Frequent it at least once a month. Fresh and tasty. Tuna melts in your mouth. Hirosakao's special sushi are always nice to try. Highly recommended and take all my visitors here.

I have visited this restaurant many times and each time I say it will be my last. This time I really mean it. The place was as as usual very crowded and completely overbooked with everyone waiting by the door. It seems they are only interested in packing as many people inside to make as much money as possible. And... More
