Craving sushi with some originality?

Nice place for sushi with some unexpected twists. The fatty tuna is some of the best I've ever had. We tend to prefer to sit at the sushi bar and have had great service every time we've been here. Eva is one of the best!

Went for sushi. The sushi was not the best as far as roll selection. The staff is very friendly and unique atmosphere. If I go back may get sushi instead of rolls or an entree.

The food was good, but not great. Nothing really made me say, "I want to come back here again". The service was good and the facility is interestingly nice. Shiro has the feel that they know what reputation they had and are thinking that this is enough. A few small things would increase the overall experience for customers and more... More

I have frequented Shiro for 15 years. I used to absolutely love it and often recommended it to others. Tonight was a grave dissappointment. I shared a birthday dinner with a large group, which we had reservations for. The staff was terribly unprepared- barely visiting our table, taking lengthy amounts of time to take and deliver orders, and could not... More

I have been going to Shiro for years with my girlfriends. A few months ago, my husband and I went together. It was his first time there. One of his first comments to me was he was surprised I enjoyed dining at Shiro. He then pointed out how dirty it was inside. I had never really looked around. I don't... More

Very few Japanese restaurants compare with Shiro. The unusual setting in a beautiful old house lets you know you are if for a treat. Beyond the setting the service is impeccable and very helpful in making your outing a memorable affair. Sit back and enjoy the finest Japanese meals you will ever experience. Start with a superbly prepared sushi followed... More

If you ever went to Shiro when it first opened it was a beautiful beautiful restaurant. All the charm is probably still there but hidden now. Everything needs to be polished cleaned or painted. I just had an appetizer and left

One of my favorite restaurants for a special occasion. I always have to get the salmon on the beach roll, it is outstanding! Honestly I don't think I've ever been disappointed with a sushi roll here. My husband is not a sushi fan and has enjoyed a variety of fish entrees here as well, most recently the sea bass which... More

Good service...our server was attentive and did a good job. The restaurant is in a old home....which could certainly use a fresh coat of paint. I can see why the wood floors don't get refinished....but the walls and baseboards really need painted. For the food the sushi was at best average. In some cases the sushi fish did not taste...

What a cool place. It looks like a mansion and is in an unexpected location off the beaten bath. Beautiful home converted into a restaurant. There were 4 of us and everyone marveled how scrumptious their meals were. It was the best fliet mignon shrimp tempura sushi roll ever tasted. The chef is obviously a pro...the flavors were complex and... More
