Excellent, authentic Japanese restaurant

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... read 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

Generally when I visit here I get the set menu. I'm never disappointed. Worth the money. The service is quick and the staff is always friendly. No doubt I will eat here again.

Small and nice restaurant with a lot of personal attention. Great food and at the beginning of the evening there are also many Japanese guests. I like the speed of service and the menu's have a lot of variety. Close to perfect; only some courses are a little bit cold when served ( probably coming directly out of the fridge)

We've been going to Shiro ever since it first opened and in our view, it is getting better and better. For a while, their menu was fairly static but in the past year, they have added new dishes and monthly menus to give things a very welcomed twist. As always, the food is prepared beautifully and portion sizes just right.... More

Table for too, in the attic of another restaurant. Small and cosy. The price is not cheap but totally in balance with what you get. The restaurant is run by real japanese staff who were ever so kind to cater to your every wish with their cute accent when they speak dutch ^^ Will certainly come again!
