This place is amazing for brunch. The chicken and waffles is out of this world and pair it with a bottomless mimosa, you cannot ask for better!

Three friends joined me here for a pre-birthday celebration. We'd read mixed reviews, so went in with open minds. We went on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was not crowded at all. Some of the reviews complained of slow service. Our awesome server, Jamie, was actually the hostess, waitress, and bartender. Had it been more crowded and staffed similarly, I can understand how things could get backed up. We saw only one other employee (don't recall his name) who helped run food and refill waters. The young man was also very kind and accommodating. The food was excellent. We tried: dim sum, roasted cauliflower, ramen bowl, braised beef and braised short rib. The Sunday brunch menu looked amazing. Too bad for us, those items were not available. We are all interested in going back to give it a try.

We loved the ambiance inside of Hiro Asian Kitchen. The beef short ribs and risotto were delicious and so was the ramen. I am very pleased with the service.

My co-workers and I came for brunch while in town for work. I made a reservation several days in advance b/c we had a group of 9. Other than us, there were only two to three other small tables the whole time we were there. Despite that, service was spotty. I think there was only one server working. It took a long time to get out order taken and we were never asked if we wanted a second round of drinks. The waitress is as kind enough to give us all separate checks.

In terms of food, we ordered every appetizer except the pickled vegetables. All we're good. The favorites were the chicken wings and tater toys. Those who got the chicken and waffle thought it was very good. The breakfast ramin was reported as being very bland. I had the matcha waffle which was good.

Overall, the experience wasn't bad, but wasn't anything that would bring me back.

Great food with an abundance of tasty Asian dishes. Best I've had since I visited Asia and lived in the Philippines.

My wife and I had our five year anniversary. We wanted to try something different. This restaurant had great reviews. Marvin was our waiter, he was very personable. We also got green tea cheese cake complementary for our special day. Highly recommend the wings for a starter.

This was, hands down, one of the worst experiences that I've ever had at a restaurant. We went for a special event called "downtown restaurant week" where they had a preset 3-course menu. We sat down at 7:10 and didn't receive our appetizers until 8:45. On top of that, we only got two (of the five) appetizers that we ordered and were left in an awkward place because the remaining three didn't come out for 20 minutes. Our entree's finally came out at 9:20 and I'll admit that the food was fantastic but even that couldn't save the poor service of this restaurant. We were finally able to leave at 10:00 (3 hours later!!). 1 out of 10 would recommend this place to a friend.

Hiro's for a weekend brunch. The menu is focused and tantalizing. Their lobster Rangoon are amazing. Everything was delicious, service was excellent. Looking forward to returning soon!

It took nearly 40 minutes to get our drinks served. Water glasses were also not filled until checks were given. The restaurant was not overly busy so it was surprising that service was so slow. The table next to us left as they waited 15 minutes without any servers to take their drink or food orders. The food was good and priced Ok.

Disappointing experience. Menu was very limited. Their Happy Hour that was advertised from 3-6 pm is only offered if you are seated at the bar. Our table was steps away from the bar, in the same general area but they would not honor the happy hour prices and there was only one other table in the entire restaurant at the time. They should have definitely extended the pricing to us. Especially since it was our first time.

So so so incredibly good! There was a little wait cause they only had one server but that did not hinder my experience in the least bit. We started off with the tater tots and chix wings for apps. I need to go rediscover my favorite wings in STL because these wings possibly are the best wings in STL. So good! Nice crispy crunch, juicy and tender on the inside, garnished with crisp green onions, and the Asian sauce is the perfect blend of asian flavors. Ugh just so good. I ordered the chix thigh and pumpkin pie waffle. A little twist on a brunch standard of chix n' waffles and it again was perfect! I also ordered the standard bottomless mimosa for my drink but other at my table received the kimchi bloody mary and the lychee blossom cocktail which I highly suggest! Kimchi brought a great breakfast flavor with a great Asian infused spice and the Lychee start of vermouth-y and dry then ends very sweet, just a very pleasant drink. I cannot wait to go back to try their non-brunch menu. I highly suggest it!!
