Yes, the sushi is probably the best, but it also so famous that as soon as you are done with your food they ask you to leave! No kidding! So be prepared!

I absolutely adore this cosy little place and the food Mr Shiro serves. The place started out as a Japanese food market in the '80s, then expanded into a tiny, yet comfortable, sushi bar. The sushi and sashimi are delicious and fresh, I especially love the chirashi and Shiro's awesome chirashi special. It can be a little hectic, and you can always bet there is people queuing at the door, but staff is always friendly, and the food and general atmosphere are definitely worth the wait!

I know this place since 1985, when it was still a small food market. Mr. Shiro - the owner - is the best Sushi Master I've ever met in my life (and I've tried dozens of sushi bars and restaurants so far)!

Many years ago, Shiro decided to transform his Japanese food market into a sushi bar while keeping a small market (at the bar entrance) offering Japanese specialties. Since then, I haven't seen a single day without people just waiting to sit and eat his delicious sushi and sashimi.

It is a small sushi bar: roughly 15 seats, 5 of which are just in front of Shiro working for you. Yet, being a sushi bar, the maximum wait time won't ever be more than 15 minutes! You choose what to eat while waiting so, when you sit at your table, food will arrive in seconds.

You can't get there without trying to taste his CHIRASHI SPECIAL... it is simply OUTSTANDING!!! I was saying "trying to taste" as it is not always available (it usually depends on how many orders have still to be processed, as Shiro's Chirashi Special takes time to be prepared).

If you want to have a more relaxed meal, just cross the road and have a seat at "Shiro": this is a more formal restaurant, yet it offers the same perfect sushi and sashimi you can have at Poporoya.

Maybe the best sushi in Milan! They provide take away or sushi bar style dinner: you olace your order, then you have to wait a table. When a table is free, and your sushi is ready, you can seat down and eat...quickly. It's worth, believe me. If you prefer taking your time go to Shiro, other side of the road. Same owner, more restaurant style. But the sushi is better at Poporoya

The place used to be a real small sushi bar and recently has expanded the area to became a small restaurant.
The chefs are japanese and the food is always fresh. They also have a small corner where they sell japanese food.
The selection, compared to other restaurants, is quite smaller, but the price is reasonable.
