My favorite sushi bar in the city resides in a comfortable almost elegant room in the heart of Belltown. It's best to let Shiro or the chef on duty guide you through what's best from the case that day but do not miss the unagi, black cod, Shiro roll or trying one of their delectable hand rolls.
Incredible sushi. I've had some of the best sushi meals in Seattle at Shiro's. The trick is to sit at the sushi bar - let Shiro recommend the fish as you go along, you'll get the best cuts and freshest fish that way. The experience at the sushi bar is noticeably different from sitting in the restaurant. Decor is reminiscent of a strip mall... not the best place for a nice evening out or a date, but let Shiro guide you at the bar and you'll likely leave very happy!
This wasn't our first visit to Shiro's. We had good experiences there in the past. We ordered the same thing every time. This time they added ingredients to our sushi that had NEVER been there before. Not expecting the sushi to be different, we ate a couple pieces before noticing there were eel and fish eggs added deeply within our shrimp tempura rolls.
The waitress argued with us that it is always prepared this way. Not true. We check each time we go somewhere new, what ingredients are in the dishes we eat.
They offered us no compensation. They did not offer to bring us something we could eat, though after eating the sushi they gave us, neither of us could have ate. With most of the sushi untouched, we were still presented the full bill.
We will not return.
Best place on our visit. 4 restaurants in 4 nights. The sushi here is top quality. I agree that taking advice is the good way to go. If we return in the near future we would consider giving it another go if we are in the sushi mood. The highlight of our trip.
The Master. Put your hands in the Master. Do not ask for wasabi. It's like asking for catsup at Canlis. He knows how much to put on. Sit, ask, eat, enjoy. The place is charming, the food beyond compare. Always accept the advice to try something that is fresh. Best sushi anywhere!
Magnificent!. my husband and i happened upon this delightful sushi joint when we tired of waiting for a table at wasabi bistro. what a wonderful surprise. the sushi was fantastic, the service was attentive without being overbearing, and the decor was pleasant. i'd recommend the shiro crab wrap. it was divine.
GREAT SUSHI. All that I can say is sit at the bar and let the sushi chefs order for you. No need even looking at the menu. Best sushi I've ever had
WOW!. We were so WOW'ed by ths food and service here! They do not overpower the sushi with too much rice and too big of pieces. The rolls have a great balance of ingredients so that you can taste each one in each bite. It was the best sushi we have had.
amazing!. the sushi here is the best seattle has to offer, and the service is amazing. thay always remember you and know your favorites!
Average. I've heard so much about Shiro's but never visited until last week. The yellow tail was amazing, so was the uni even though the cuts were pretty thin. However, the service was not very good, considering how many servers they have for such a small place. When we first walked in, the place was nearly empty yet the hostess let us stand around akwardly for a few minutes before even saying hello. It was expensive. Dinner for the two of us was $115 and we only split one bottle of beer.... I wouldn't really recommend SHiro's over any of the other sushi houses in Seattle. Insider tip - we came out of there with the smell of tempura clinging to our clothes.
Prices way high... Prices have become much more expensive recently. Dropped $70 on din for 2 with no appetizer and no alcohol! A year ago we paid about $40 for the same meal at Shiro's! The single-nigiri servings are now at 2-piece nigiri prices. Result is shocking- I won't be back, especially with many great sushi places in Seattle.
