Delicious food and excellent service

Excellent Japanese food, a little secret in Den Bosch, hidden on a first floor in a small little street. The food was very well prepared, tasty and balanced. We were highly surprised about this quality restaurant.

The menu card may look a bit limited for the set menus, but once the choice is made ( tempura or sashimi menu is my recommendation) , what an enchanting succession of subtle tastes, plates of all sizes, colours and shapes! The hostesses -dressed in kimonos - rush through the dining rooms to serve their customers the best possible way... More

The atmosphere and the design of the restaurant is certainly ok. Prices are quite high and the menu doesn't change very often. For tourist not a problem because they will leave the city after some days. The restaurant is in the old part of the city, called"ijlenburg"with many restaurants, terrasses and bars.

I've visited Japan several time and lived in Asia for a few years. Finding a good authentic Japanese restaurant in the Netherlands is not so easy. We returned to Shiro in Den Bosh after many years, and just like the first time this restaurant did not disappoint us. The place is small and cosy, it's recommended to book a table... More

They've improved the sukiyaki - one of my all-time favourite dishes. As always, I'm still ordering the monthly set menu, and it's still wonderful and continues to vary and inspire. Beautiful scallops, delicious sashimi, inspiring starters. For a real Japanese treat - this is the place to go.

Located in the back of a picturesque street in the center of Den Bosch, Shiro is a very cozy restaurant which at first glance doesn't look like a restaurant. After going up the stairs you'll find yourself at the entrance of an under-the-rooftop Japanese style restaurant. Always being welcomed in Japanese fashion by the ever friendly and informative hostess. This... More

In Den Bosch, there are many "Japanese" restaurants but there is only one Shiro. In recent years the fad is the All You Can Eat Japanese food and it is as it is... just volume food, nothing special, get filled with rice, sometimes not even sushi rice, a small slice of fish and call it Japanese food. But people like... More
