You can always find something on the menu you have not tried. Sushi always great. My favorite is the Tuna Napoleon Trio on the appetizer. you get a huge amount of 3 types of tuna for very little money. Chef's choices of the day also great way to surprise yourself. Great service, nice place. Unique and rustic a bit, very... More

I discovered Shiro by surfing the Internet. I was very pleasantly surprised by the excellent atmosphere and the quality of the food. The sushi was absolutely superb and the service was excellent!! The prices are very reasonable and the restaurant is inside what appears to be an old residential mansion. Huge white pillars in front and gorgeous entryway! What a... More

Shiro is always delicious and the menu will please any sushi or sashimi lover. The service is excellent and the food is beautifully presented. It is in a charming old home that makes lunch or dinner a pleasant experience.

The best rolls and sashimi around. This place is off the beaten path in Novi but worth finding. The servers are very knowledgeable and helpful. Have only had the sushi but I am sure the entrees are great also. Can't wait to go again. They do take out also!!

Shiro is a go to for a romantic night out or just a good meal. Everything we've had is excellent. It's an old home and has several dining areas. Lovely decorating. Although, it could use some tlc outside. We also like it because they take reservations. And no matter how crowded it doesn't get too loud. You can still have... More

This was our second visit to Shiro, the first being just one year ago, to celebrate our daughter's birthday. As was the case last time, we sat at a table in the sushi prep area. There is also a bar in front of the prep area where you may prefer to be seated. This occasion started off with a bottle... More

I had crab rolls, tuna spring rolls with the guac was so good, the ginger salad was good, not so fond of their sunomon, cukes were too thick for my liking. Restaurant is in an old mansion, interior doesn't quite fit for a Japanese themed restaurant, but whatever. Think they should have a kid friendly section, especially the loud ones... More

We have been to Shiro on several occasions and always found it acceptable but not an experience that has you wanting to return ASAP. The sushi and most entrees are good, I would suggest to try the fatty roll sushi and the sea bass dinner. Service could be better we were at our table for about 25 minutes before being... More

Interesting atmosphere, however the sushi was average at best. Decent service although they left the empty beverage glasses on the table despite bringing a new drink/glass of wine.

I read some the reviews and had a different experience. The food and the rolls were excellent. The take out sushi rolls were excellent as well. Shiro's is a pricey, but I think the food is worth it.
