If you like sushi, definitely a place to go while in Erlangen. The food is great, service is nice, one doesn't have to wait for too long for the food to be done. It tends to be full in the evenings so making a reservation is recommended. The price is a bit on the higher end, but well worth it.

I just love Hiro Sakao, it's my favorite restaurant in Erlangen because it's the only one where I've found really tasty and good quality sushi in the region. The fish that is served tastes very good and the sushi rolls are very well done. The warm entries are delicious and the soups are big, which is important. The hostess is... More

The Sushi was really delicious, if you order tea, you get free refills and you can even watch them prepare your food, so it is definitely fresh. On top of that they have rice ice cream which was interesting, but delicious as well.. so 5* for the food, 3,5* for prices, 4* for the interiour. The biggest "negative" point was,... More

I am not into sushi, so I tried several other options in this restaurant, i.e. unusal combination of irish steak with japaneese sauce. Or noodles with shavings from a smoked fish. While the dishes were good, I cannot say they were excelent. Needless to say, all my friends said the sushi was great. BTW - a reservation is a must... More

Definitely not the cheapest restaurant on the block, Hiro Sakao is worth every penny. The staff is friendly, the place almost always crowded and yet you'll find 'your' spot there to enjoy a vast variety of specialities both, cold and warm. Always presented in a beautiful way, the small dishes have the perfect size to try quite a few and... More

The service isn't too polite and sometimes seems to think: we are booked, so why bother. The food has always been delicious. It is always a good idea to book a table beforehand.

Really nice food but the service is unfortunately quite slow at lunch time. Let's hope it get better!

Sushi and other food are very good. Sushi is very close to real Japanise sushi. Unfortunately I experienced more than once that waitresses are not polite and service is longer than 30 min.
