Shiro's sushi is always made from fresh fish, and tastes great! I also love their nameko miso soup!


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 n...

Best in Seattle 6/1/2009

I'd say this place has the best sushi in Seattle. It's expensive though, but very good. Great service, and very delish dishes. more

great and interesting sushi! 7/25/2006

Shiros sushi is located in belltown, the sushi was on average with other sushi restaurants i been to, but thats because you get two different kinds of service to choose from, if you sit at the bar you get hand made and made to order sushi by the owner, and his sushi is always better if you sit at the table you get the sushi from his partnes which to me is just average but the owner makes special order sushi for any diet you have. Also the pricing is different sitting at the bar vs. sitting at a table its cheaper sitting at a table. But if you want average sushi and you plan to sit at the table you can go else where for cheaper but for good sushi sit at the bar and eat here. The service was excellent, location is great the only gripe again is parking because its located in downtown. The good times to go are the evenings. if you go there ask for the dancing prawns its very interesting and make sure you sit at the bar. more

The Bar is Worth the Wait 5/24/2006

Shiro's should be on everyone's sushi restaurant hit list. It has history, ambience, and a feeling of authenticity that you just can't get at Blue C. From my experience sitting at the bar is ideal so you can see how sushi is made especially if you are new to sushi like i was. Talking with the chefs and learning about where they came from is very interesting and unique. A friend recommended I should request the bar and then tell the chefs what my budget is and what my tastes are. Get there early after they open to skip the wait. From there the chefs begin to wow you with their artful creations often those that aren't on the menu. They also encourage you to try new things and it was the there I tried eel for the first time. There also isn't a feeling of being rushed while seated at the bar because you're there for the experience too. Give yourself enough time to drink a Kirin, enjoy your sushi and then get some tea afterwards. Don't be afraid to talk to the chefs and ask questions. Partly I think that's why they are up there because they love interacting with people. When we were there we actually caught a glimpse of Shiro himself as he talked to what appeared to be a regular at the bar. This is great for a date out of the norm and would be an excellent place to take out of town guests for a true Seattle experience. more

Excellent Nigiri and nice ambience 10/20/2005

This is definitely one of my favorite Sushi spots in town. They center around the cuts of fish rather than rolls and due to that, have some amazing tasting nigiri. I also like Shiro's if I am looking for a smaller, intimate dinner with a date or just a couple friends. It's quiet, the wait staff is very nice and they have a good selection of side dishes and Japanese beverages. There are many Sushi restaraunts in Seattle, but you don't want to miss this one. more

I don't think so. 9/12/2005

I find the fish to be fine, but not impressive. In my book, it's certainly not worth the circus one has to endure, surrounded by Shiro's gushing supplicants. Would be at least a little better if servers showed any interest in assisting customers who aren't avowed Shiro-lovers, but who knows: maybe there *are* enough of these to keep this place going. more

Sushi with a smile 8/26/2005

What can I say about Shiro's! This place is great. Fresh fish. All the yummy traditional sushi you can handle. Blue-fin tuna prepared with a blow torch and a little magic that has this fish tasting like Kobe beef. And man was the place crowded. But it is worth the wait. Try to sit at the sushi bar so you can watch the action go down. I saw a chef peel a cuke with a huge knife. Such a formidable looking apparatus for such a delicate process. IT'll mesmerize you! Wherever I travel, a great sushi bar is an essential find. And all I can really say about Shiro's is this Seattle, I've found it. more

Great Sushi 8/16/2005

Shiro's is one of the few places in Seattle that has good Shushi that can be compared to eating in Japan. I do know this as I lived in japan for 7 years and my wife is native japanese. Typically you need to go to Vancouver to get decent Sushi, but Shiro's is pretty good. Also, this is where Ichiro goes on occasion - He sits in the back room, but does not close the curtin so you can peek in and wave. The chefs are Japanese as are the waitresses. This is not a Korean owned and run Japanese place. more

Best sushi in Seattle, hands down 8/19/2004

If you want real sushi, you gotta go to Shiro's. I Love Sushi and Toyoda are both good, but Shiro's takes the cake. It's not overly trendy or kitschy like those "modern-interpretive-sushi-bistros" you will find elsewhere in the city--its authentic "real deal" sushi. To find out what that means, go to Shiro's, ask to sit at the bar and eat whatever is given to you... its all very fresh and good! Its the best in Seattle, the price is worth every penny! more
