Shiro's is quite possibly the best place for sushi outside of Japan. He trained with Jiro (of "Jiro Dreams of Sushi") for over six years. Join the line outside by 4:45 to ensure your spot at the sushi bar. Eat whatever is handed to you. This is a meal of a lifetime.

We went to Shiro's for dinner and we loved it. We'll definitely go back! We sat at the sushi counter et let the chef choose for us. It was fabulous, the fish was fresh, the sushi were simple but the simplicity is what made the flavours shine. The chef started with classic sushi (salmon, tuna, etc) and as the evening went by made us taste more special ones. Even my husband who is not the adventurous type when it comes to food tried everything and loved almost all of it!
If you're in Seattle, try Shiro's, you won't regret it!!

Read all the glowing reviews...but we're some what underwhelmed... Small portions and did not feel for the money the overall experience was nearly worth it. Yes the Sushi is high quality but at a Per Piece Price of 2.75 and up and small cut rolls of 10 or more..we will try somewhere else on our next Sushi in Seattle!

What a joy it is to visit Shiro's when we travel to Seattle. This beautiful, simple sushi restaurant continues to be packed, with a happy buzz, and when old Shiro is working the counter there is almost a glow about the place. A great evening and, of course, fantastic food. Everything is made so lovingly. Ask what's special and freshest that night. Try some unusual things. We love just about everything here, but a few standouts are the broiled black cod, smelt nigiri (local small fish), and spinach goma-ae. An easy walk into Belltown from most of the downtown Seattle hotels.

We enjoyed sushi at Shiro's in our trip to Seattle. We had early dinner with a nice white wine and fresh tasty sushi. The restaurant was packed and we saw many waiting for a table. It was great choice it's the best sushi restaurant in Seattle
