Have been to Shiranui since they open for business. Just read the reviews and agree with the majority that this is a real jewel. The chef - Hiro - is passionate about food and the freshness and quality is top class. His wife - Suzi - is a top host and really makes you feel like a guest. The staff... More

Have dined here twice over the past few months. This place is definitely for special occasions - it is premium Japanese and the price reflects that. Lunch is a little more reasonably priced than dinner due to lunch set menus. You also need a booking; good luck trying to walk in as they have a small capacity and are always... More

I eat there about 3-4 times a year and I'm not local. Packed w Japanese and Chinese. Lunch is v reasonably priced set menu and dinner is expensive but just like wiredfrog's review - ask for the counter seats so you can get special treatment. I wish they'd get bigger premises as I hate "sessions". A high staff:customer ration so... More

This place is elegant, service is excellent! We were seated at the sushi bar and it was quite a show - thoroughly enjoyed our date night. Sushi was fresh and excellent! We will be back for me. Oh, the service is excellent!

The food is tasty, but portions are small, desserts are microscopic. The restaurant is pretty expensive - a bill for two persons for a modest dinner (sashimi for 2 and dessert with a tea) can be over 100 dollars. And in addition, after dinner I had problem with my stomach.

For those of you that grew up with Seinfeld series, you may remember two iconic episodes. First one is where the Seinfeld gang wanted to sneak into a Chinese restaurant and couldn't get in and they tried to find various ways to get a table and the other episode is about the "Soup Nazi" where the chef is extremely particular...

Ate here recently and could not fault the food. Lunch time with two sittings and time is strictly adhered to! That's OK because the food is magnificent. We have eaten in Japan so know the food. This was just superb. Magnificent flavours. Small restaurant but very busy. Real Japanese chef which makes the difference and staff very efficient. If you... More

Love the sushi - highly recommend the sushi counter. The ten course plus sushi selection at the counter is brilliant. Takes you on a sushi journey.

This is HQ japanese food. Nice atmosphere, great food, nothing standard. Maybe I am not an expert but there I tasted some flavors for the first time in my life. Small place with great food.
