About Shiro of Japan - Carle Place

For over 42 years Shiro of Japan has the reputation for providing patrons with an exceptional and authentic Japanese dining experience at affordable prices.

Shiro of Japan was founded on the tradition of “true” Japanese hibachi steak house, a concept that introduced America to the cooking art form known as teppanyaki. In Japanese, teppan means an “iron plate” or a “steel sheet,” and yaki, “stir-fried food” or “stir-frying.” The teppanyaki and hibachi styles, come together to create a mouth-watering form of cuisine that continues to increase in popularity in the New York region and across the nation.

Note, when making an online reservation please specify Hibachi, our Sushi Bar Dining Room or Japanese Garden. We also have Tatami Rooms and a large Tatami Room perfect for parties or meetings.

Been going there for over 25 years. Always loved and trusted their food to be amazing. Although the service was top notch as usual, this last time the food wasnt as great. Soup felt watered down and the steak was fatty (never was ever before). Did they change ownership/chefs?

Very crowded and we got a rookie cook who was already burning the rice. I ordered lamb needless to say way overcooked. Unless you know the best chef there, I would avoid ordering any real food.

I've been coming here for 37 years and always had a great time ,Prices have gone up quite a bit But the real problem is the bar bill they charge too much for their alcoholic drinks .

We stopped in for lunch on Tuesday after shopping at the mall. We were in the mood for sushi so I checked open table for sushi restaurants in the area. Based on the reviews, we chose this restaurant and requested a table in the sushi bar. We had a hard time finding items on the sushi menu that appealed to us. We eat sushi very frequently. This menu was very limited and most of their specialty roles were made with “jake” (imitation crab and mayo salad). We ordered a tuna roll and salmon sushi. We also ordered hibachi noodles as an appetizer. The fish seemed fresh and the noodles were tasty, but greasy. For us, it wasn’t worth the price.

Japanese Hibachi style restaurant. Good food along with good decor. Try it if you have never been. You surely would not disappoint. Great food spot in Garden City/Westbury if you are in the area for shopping.

As usual, this was a fun dinner. Chef really did a nice job engaging the table. My only complaint was the filet was overdone. I ordered medium rare and meat was medium to well.

Food and service was not good. I had to walk to the front counter to pay. Chef was sloppy and rushing when cooking the food. No one asked if we wanted refills on our drinks. I don't go to Shiro's often, but I do look forward to going when I get a chance. This visit was a big let down.

I had 9:00pm reservation but was not seated until 9:40. The hostess seem that he was very overwhelmed and did not know how to seat groups at the tables. The waiter was very inexperienced and could not handle his tables properly. Sorry, usually my wife and I don't have these issues at Shiro.

I had lunch box chicken tempora and California roll, miso soup, salad
Service was excellent. everything was great, except the chicken was quite dry.
The soup was the best Miso soup I have ever had. the California
roll was average (but the wasabi mustard was toned down to missing the bite I expect.
If the chicken wasn't so dry, I would have rated much higher.

I've been going there for over 20 years, so we love it.. but this most recent visit the food was not up to normal high quality. Could have been the chef we got ?? Fried rice which is usually AWESOME was bland... the filet mignon wasnt nearly as good as it usually it. I'm assuming this is a one time not great experience. Will absolutely go back and hope its as good as it usually is.

A large family group was there finishing up but apparently couldn't do math or control their children. Management did nothing to get them to quiet down. Tables were dirty with large visible bits of food stuck in the track between the griddle top and the table. Took almost 10 minutes to be acknowledged when I was standing at the hostess podium. Food was ok but not great for the price seems like they charge $5 more per plate than other hibachi restaurants and at 4.50 extra per fried rice I thought was excessive.

Food was excellent, Hibachi Chef was awesome, waitress seemed worn out and not loving her job, we were very rushed, every component of the dinner was brought right away, one after the other, was a birthday celebration and the birthday person was presented with a metal bucket filled with silk flowers and a taper candle to blow out after we all sang happy birthday, the birthday bucket has to go, really, we paid for 5 people, I think they could put a candle in a pudding, ice cream or a cupcake instead.
