Reviews for Shiro's


No doubt some of the best sushi you'll find in Seattle. Go on the right night and you'll find Shiro holding court behind the sushi bar. Regulars who put their trust in the hands of Shiro are duly rewarded.


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.


Some of the best sushi this side of Tokyo. Let the chefs recommend their freshest, this is a tough table to get for good reason!

Your mouth will thank you – Although Shiro's sushi is excellent, the outstanding thing here is the service--my waitress was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. The sushi is quite fresh and of excellent quality. And Shiro himself is also pleasant and outgoing, which sushi chefs frequently aren't, in my experience--he called out to me from the sushi bar to make sure I was enjoying everything. My one complaint was that the pieces of sushi are a little large, which is non-traditional for sushi (although in fairness, I think most Americans like it that way, so Shiro is probably bowing to demand). Highly recommended.

They know what they're doing here... – Shiro's sets the standard. You can go to Nishino for more innovative fare but Shiro's is straight up freshness. The service is fine, the sushi bar is fun, and the ambience isn't pretentious. Unlike it's Belltown competitors, Shiro's is a real restaurant.

Great sushi – Shiro's is a regular for me and I dine there whenever it's a small group and quality of fish is important. The only drawbacks are the small dining room which gets crowded - reservations recommended (and a X:XX reservation is EXACTLY X:XX).

I rank Shiro's on par with Nishino and I Love Sushi which are my other two regular sushi joints.
