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.

As the title suggests, the Hiro Sakao provides excellent dishes paired with great service. It is not the very Best Sushi I have ever had, but best in the Region. Hiro Sakao is a pretty busy place, you may wish to reserve a table to be on the safe side.

Went with a few friends and the food Ok and service was good. The starters freshly made and tasty. Main course was OK but not great. Price was fine. Will go again which is always a good sign

OK, it was busy. But the young guy serving us would have had far less work to do had he spent a few more seconds waiting and listening to his customers! He was impatient, rude, ignorant and unattentive. Until they get some decent customer focussed staff I will not return here! Which is a pity because the food and prices... More

This restaurant has great sushi! Fish, vegetables and rice are fresh. It tastes great. The prices go from 4€ up to aprox 12 € for sushi rolls. They offer also menu dishes. Friends and relatives order them, but I still prefer sushi. The atmosphere is very nice, with a some Asian deco. Usually very crowed, better to make a reservation... More
