Craving sushi with some originality?

Nice place for sushi with some unexpected twists. The fatty tuna is some of the best I've ever had. We tend to prefer to sit at the sushi bar and have had great service every time we've been here. Eva is one of the best!

Very few Japanese restaurants compare with Shiro. The unusual setting in a beautiful old house lets you know you are if for a treat. Beyond the setting the service is impeccable and very helpful in making your outing a memorable affair. Sit back and enjoy the finest Japanese meals you will ever experience. Start with a superbly prepared sushi followed... More

If you ever went to Shiro when it first opened it was a beautiful beautiful restaurant. All the charm is probably still there but hidden now. Everything needs to be polished cleaned or painted. I just had an appetizer and left

One of my favorite restaurants for a special occasion. I always have to get the salmon on the beach roll, it is outstanding! Honestly I don't think I've ever been disappointed with a sushi roll here. My husband is not a sushi fan and has enjoyed a variety of fish entrees here as well, most recently the sea bass which... More

Good service...our server was attentive and did a good job. The restaurant is in a old home....which could certainly use a fresh coat of paint. I can see why the wood floors don't get refinished....but the walls and baseboards really need painted. For the food the sushi was at best average. In some cases the sushi fish did not taste...

What a cool place. It looks like a mansion and is in an unexpected location off the beaten bath. Beautiful home converted into a restaurant. There were 4 of us and everyone marveled how scrumptious their meals were. It was the best fliet mignon shrimp tempura sushi roll ever tasted. The chef is obviously a pro...the flavors were complex and... More

We went here, unfamiliar with it, passing through town on a road trip. We had our two small kids with us. Big mistake. It was a late Sunday evening and it was moderately busy. Service was awful: long waits for drinks (water), to take order, and food, forgot several things, didn't clear table of dirty items. They brought out our... More

The very best sushi ever. Everything is made to order with many unique combinations. My favorite is the fatty roll-a little seafood,vegetable and rice with cream cheese on top then flamed with a terrific sauce on top. The bento boxes are always available as lunch specials for about $10.00 with the combination ever changing. The restaurant is located in an... More

We were expecting a great sushi place after reading all of the reviews. We were disappointed. My husband ordered the sushi platter and the fish wasn't fresh at all. I ordered the bento box, and it was okay... Nothing that I would go back for. My niece ordered rolls. The spicy tuna was mediocre, with not much flavor. The spicy... More

Shiros has some of the best and sometimes most innovative sushi around. The roll with prime rib and toasted garlic didn't sound like it would be good. It was great. Love Shiros.
