    Would recommend to all. I enjoyed it a lot. The waiter was awesome and as you enter the restaurant you are greeted by the Japanese owner with a big smile and makes you feel so welcomed. I loved the whole experience.

    I've been coming to Shiro's since my kids were young. They still ask to come monthly. It's a fun place...however, you always feel rushed. I'm not talking about Fri or Sat night. You can be a 5pm table on a Tue and it's the same. SLOW DOWN.

    Shiro is known for their hibachi, but for me, it is their sushi that keeps me coming back. In addition to their sushi, I really love their soba salad. It has a really good combination and tastes great. Furthermore, they are very accommodating and will make any roll with cucumber wrapping instead of rice for those who prefer this or need their sushi without rice. I will definitely be back again and again.

    Moving forward ... My only recommendation is asking the chef/cook to immediately remove the food (shrimp/chicken) from the flame to avoid it drying out and beig hard. I'll come back again. Thank you Sophie for all your assistance.

  • Not a true Hibachi experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 5/18/2014
    I've previously dined at Shiro's and chose it for a special occasion dinner with friends and family who have never been to a hibachi restaurant. The food quality was good but the chef was not a good showman. My nieces and guests did not get to enjoy the true experience of hibachi and showmanship of a true hibachi chef. He literally cooked our food with no knife skills or demonstrations to make it a fun and memorable experience. I am also disappointed that the children were not offered the package of sweets as they usually do at the end of the meal. With so many other reputable Japanese hibachi restaurants to chose from, I will not choose Shiro's.

  • Sharing charge for kids
    Foodie
    Dined on 5/16/2014
    We have been going to Shiros for almost 30 years, since we were kids. Our 4 and 6 year old like the scallops which is not offered on kids menu. We always get them an adult meal to share, which actually more money that two kids meal. This time they told us they would have to charge us a $6 sharing fear. If it was two adults that would make sense but for small Children that is an unfair charge especially since we were paying more than two children meals. In the end we told them we were ordering fried rice only for 4 year old and this way we didn't get charged. When we asked to speak with manager waiter refused to accommodate us. We have been at Shiros so many times and have never encounter this issue. We will probably not go back for awhile.

    We had a 9pm reservation which we waited 45mins for even though the place was empty. We said we didn't care about sitting at a hibachi table, we would sit anywhere, and they refused. They said we just be patient. While we were eating our salad and soup the server literally took our food away while we were eating. She waited for me to pick up a piece of lettuce and then took my bowl away. It was my birthday, they sang happy birthday to the wrong person in our group. And! They burned me!! The server put our receipts on silver trays that she (I didn't know at the time) left on a HOT hibachi table. Then she pretended to not understand what she did and why I was in so much pain. Horrible service. Food wasn't even good.

    The food was very good. We sat at the hibachi and our Mexican cook did a good job with everything he put on the flat top with a couple neat tricks. My party was a bit puzzled about why the couple at the end of the table has to wait for our entire order before the chef would begin cooking. We had no clue how long they had to wait. My brother and I shared a small bottle of great imported sake and my roll was delicious and appropriately portioned. I wish the staff greeted us with the same cordiality and vigor as the truly authentic Japanese restaurants in New york. I specifically requested this formality when I made the reservation so my mom would feel upbeat. With that being said, we probably over-tipped.

    Runaway
    Dined on 3/30/2014
    I grew up visiting Shiro of Japan and chose it for a family get together. I am sad to say that the dining experience has gone down over the years. Maybe there are different owners?The salad dressing was a weak imitation of their past and what I have come to expect with very little ginger. The sauces for the main course are watered down and very weak not even coating the food. The vegetables we bland with the traditional sesame seeds no longer being added. The serving of shrimp appetizer was 3 very small shrimp. The chef seemed like an amateur with no flair. The tradition shrimp tail flip missing and the chicken over cooked and dry. Over all the experience was very over priced and will choose a different Hibachi restaurant in the future. .

    I went in thinking this place is going to suck, generic food, sitting with strangers, cramped like sardines. It was the total opposite of what i imagined it would be. I ordered the steak sirloin it was very tender and flavorful i've been to the expensive steak houses and this one was that good. The fried rice tasted great as well. Next time i go i'm going to try the sushi rolls one of the couples across from me ordered and i was so tempted to call the waiter over and order one for myself. we weren't cramped at all the tables hold 7 or 8 people and there's plenty of room.

Well when our couple who was running late came they saw there was no room for them and walked out. PS it was my daughter and husband. Now we have a family issue......
