I'd go with sashimi because the fish is nice and fresh, but the sushi rice is not quite right (my guess is that they're not using the right vinegar), so if you're a stickler for accurate sushi, you'll notice it. Otherwise, I can't see how you'd be disappointed here. The restaurant tends to be busy (filled with Germans who don't... More

I have eaten here a few times and the food is fresh, looks good when placed in front of you and most importantly tastes great. The only downside is due to it being so busy there can be a bit of a wait to get your meal. This happens both at lunch and dinner times. It's a small price to... More

If you are prepared to wait a while for your table and thereafter sit very close to other patrons such that you might as well have 1 conversation and share a meal then this is a good place for Sushi if not one of the best of Erlangen.

Food and Prices are exellent, but sometimes it is very loud and if you reserve a table you very often will only get a reservation for 1 hour and than you are asked to leave due to "too much business"

The sushi at Hiro Sakao is amazingly good and very delicious. Everything we ordered was yummy and the quality is really amazing. Also all the homemade drinks are just so delicious. We can really recommend this restaurant.

Hiro Sakao is one of my favourites restaurants in Erlangen. They have a really good shushi, made on time. Young people are working on this restaurant and they are very nice. Good quality. It is expensive if you consider other alternatives and you need reserve table. When restaurant is full takes timw to receive your order but the give you... More

Greetings, This place is an excellent place to get really good Japanese food and sushi. The only trouble is that it's usually crowded and noisy. Don't expect to get seated during normal meal times without a reservation. Staff seem to be nice enough. I consider it somewhat on the expensive side but you get really good food for the price....

California-grade sushi! Unfortunately, I have not yet been to Japan, but have had a lot of sushi in California and Germany (Munich and Duesseldorf), and this place beats most others for quality, freshness, service and taste. Went for a business meal with important customer, had a great meal. They offer a very good and broad choice of dishes so even... More

If you are in Erlangen and looking for sushi this is the place to be. They offer the best sushi in town mixed with some other traditional Japanese dishes if someone doesn't like sushi who is joining.
