Looking for a place to eat and staying just a couple of blocks away we found this Japanese spot and gave it a try. We found the sushi to be fresh and well prepared,the seafood yosenabe,a soup,was steaming hot and satisfying! We were served hot tea with our meal and the service was on point! Definitely would recommend Hiro for... More

Visited this place for lunch. Each of us ordered a bento box with 2 items and a dragon roll to share. I ordered Saba shioyaki and salmon teriyaki. Food was not bad but service was very slow. When we asked for the bill, we were slammed with 18% service charge for a party of 6. No where on the menu... More

Good selection of sushis. Great quality to reasonable price. Efficient staff. Low key decor. Malfunctioning and dirty ladies' room.

Hiro is great. We have eaten there, and also ordered take out, and the quality has been good every time. Their sushi is wonderful, and I am a huge fan of their combinations (bento box) meals.

It was our last night in the bay area, we were staying in San Bruno to be close to the airport for an early flight out. We were looking for a spot for dinner, hubby said to try a taco truck, and I should have taken his advice, but no, after reading TA reviews we decided to try this place.... More

I arrived in San Fran on the first flight out of DC. Spent the day playing golf and had to pick up two others at SFO later that night. So, I wanted to find a restaurant that was close to the airport. Using trip advisor, I found this spot. The reviews here are accurate. I asked the waiter what was... More

Never a bad meal- lots of variety for all tastes, great atmosphere, friendly staff , lots of local eat here which is a great indicator of the quality of food. We travel out of San Franciscon airport a lot and stay at a local hotel the night before and always eat here. Never disappointed.

Excellent menu that covers almost every taste. Things for the traditional and rolls to cover the American taste. Many sake to choose from to include Soju, yum ! I had Ankimo and a variety of nigiri. The service was fast and very friendly.

On an unexpected layover, we didn't want to venture far from the hotel but wanted sushi. This place was worth the extra stop. It was fresh, delicious - possibly the best sushi I've had in years - and the sushi chef (who may have also been the owner) was extremely knowledgeable. Special rolls were delicious and the nigiri was excellent... More
