“My Favorite Restaurant in South Pasadena”
Reviewed August 26, 2008

I don't usually rave about restaurants, but Shiro deserves every bit of praise it gets. The food is fresh, the flavors delicious and the presentation just lovely. The wait staff is wonderful. This is my favorite restaurant in the entire San Gabriel Valley. Every friend I've introduced to this restaurant has thanked me, not just for the great food but also for a wonderful experience.

The Chinese ravioli is always a favorite. I enjoy the various appetizers. There are always special additions to the menu that are excellent. Shiro has a reputation for preparing fish very, very well and that reputation is well deserved. My daughter loves the fried catfish. The cooks are also skilled in cooking and saucing meat: I love the filet mignon, which is full of flavor. When lamb chops are on the menu, they are superb.

I dine out often and recommend this restaurant highly.
