“A new Gem in Boracay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Every time we go and visit, we are blown away by the food, served as an Art!
The freshness and finesse of each piece of sushi, sashimi and other dish is amazing.
Chef Andy is truly is great one!
A place to indulge in, with your loved one or close friends. A different experience on the Island! Japanese food brought to another level.

“Loved it!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Interesting concept of a set sushi menu. Gorgeous presented sushi pieces, very fresh, beautifully made and tasty variety. Had some difficulty understanding the menu, and it being a set menu limits options for a vegan.

“Korean-style Omakase”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

This place is excellent value for money. 1100 PHP for Korean-style Omakase including sushi and sashimi. Reasonable prices for sake (400 PHP for a 300ml bottle). Food quality was a little mixed, with some courses excellent and international standard, others fairly average. The sushi consists of local fish only which necessarily restricts the option: I've certainly never had Parrot-fish belly sushi before, but it was actually quite decent. I'd recommend a visit to this place whilst in Boracay.

“Excellent addition to Boracay ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

The place is clean and seems to have good hygiene procedures. Sushi and sashimi were fresh and tasty. The set B contained also other items, that were well prepared. One let down: I usually like miso soup, but this one was lacking flavor.

Service was very good and efficient. I think they could add a bit of an entertainment factor when you are sitting at the bar. At a town like Boracay with its many tourists you should try not to be too serious...

I will come back to see if they earn my 5th star.

“Wonderful food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

I would describe this restaurant as a rose among thorns. Tucked down a local street off the main road in Boracay, Sushi Shi-Ro is a must when visiting the island.

We ordered the largest of the 3 set menus and were thoroughly impressed with fresh sashimi art prepared right before our eyes. Each was piece different and unique.

Everything we ate was delicious, the highlight being a gift of parrot fish that the owner and head sushi chef so kindly assisted in pulling the edible meat from the bones for us.

All the wait staff and assistant chefs were wonderfully kind and explained every dish that was served and how to eat it.

Thank you Sushi Shi-Ro for a wonderful evening.
