I definitely recommend this restaurant. You may a first think it is a little pricey. Wait until course after course after course of high quality food is presented. My favourite restaurant in the Netherlands.

Shiro is THE place we go to celebrate anything. It's run by a lovely Japanese lady and the food is amazing! It's what I imagine real Japanese to be. It's not an "all you can eat" sushi place that the Dutch love to eat at, it's a real dining experience. Get the sukiyaki!

I wanted Japanese but not one of those all-you-can-eat that one can find everywhere, and Shiro was a good choice. I'm pretty sure it's the best Japanese in Den Bosch! Excellent service (though a bit slow if you ask me, we were there for three hours), very good food, it's definitely worth the price. We had one of the preset... More

Shiro is run by a Japanese family and it shows. The food is not the type of fake Japanese kind one gets everywhere these days, but it is classical Japanese cooking. Everything was very tasty and prices are fair. I also experienced a high degree of friendlyness and helpfulness on my visit when I experiences some organizational problems. I felt... More

I am not an expert on Japanese cooking - the last experience was in the middle of South Island, New Zealand and the unhygienic antics of the chef rather put me off. This was quite different - it was an enjoyable experience - our vegetarian colleague was delighted with what was on offer and my scallop main dish - eight... More

We come here now since 5 years, and once or twice a year, for special occasions. Everytime we enjoy it as much as the first time. Perfect intimate ambiance, very friendly hostess. But most important , the quality of food is Michelin star level. Prepare for a evening of long dining, but with perfect food and wines. Not cheap, but... More

Shiro gives you a real Japanese restaurant experience. We tried the Japanese - as written in Japanese - menu which has more fish / less meat than than the English menu. I had a concern that the servings would be small however in the end we all had more than enough.

Excellent Japanese food, a little secret in Den Bosch, hidden on a first floor in a small little street. The food was very well prepared, tasty and balanced. We were highly surprised about this quality restaurant.

The menu card may look a bit limited for the set menus, but once the choice is made ( tempura or sashimi menu is my recommendation) , what an enchanting succession of subtle tastes, plates of all sizes, colours and shapes! The hostesses -dressed in kimonos - rush through the dining rooms to serve their customers the best possible way... More
