About Shiro of Japan - The Shops @ Atlas Park
For over 42 years, and now over 8 years in our Glendale Queens location, 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 or our main dining room.

Shiro of Japan - The Shops @ Atlas Park Ratings and Reviews
Noisy, and filled with children. Food not good at all. Service, not good at all. getting in and out of restaurant difficult. Would never do this place again, and I had a reservation. Said reservation was not acknowledged. Took 20 minutes to get seated. Inexperienced staff had no clue.
Always a pleasure to visit Shiros but on New Year's Eve which was one of the coldest days of the year their heating system was not working at all. Completely off. We were informed of this prior to our visit which we thought would not be a problem but it was a bit unpleasant. They only offered a free round of drinks which wasn't really beneficial to my family being that we didn't drink any alchohol.
We always go to this particular location cause it is a nice friendly atmosphere and the food is great, also the service is good. This time we went on 12/16 to celebrate my daughter’s eight bday cause she loves this place so we decided to have dinner, she was so happy when the staff sung her happy bday it made her feel so special. ❤️😍🎉🎈
The staff make this place. They are so lovely and fun. You've got to love hibachi or you're going to miss out. It's upstairs at the open air mall. Super easy to get in and seated. It's not a high end dining experience, but the food was tasty. Best of all...catching the chef-launched flying rice ball in your mouth 😆
This was our first time eating here and we came to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. The staff was very friendly and the space itself was nice. The food was just okay for us and really not worth the price. It was nothing out of this world... I don’t think we’ll be back honestly.
On behalf of my family and I, I want to thank you all for your great service and accommodations to assure my twins 21st bday was a success. We truly enjoy the environment, food, and drinks... but most importantly the great customer service we received... thank you so much
We were greeted by a friendly young man upon entering the Shiro of Japan Restaurant at The Shops @ Atlas Park in Queens, NY and seated immediately. The staff and chef were all very attentive to the needs of all the people at our hibachi table. The prices were not cheap but the food was good. I felt that an extra charge of $4.95 for "fried rice", a small bowl of white rice with an egg, onions and soy sauce was a bit much.
This was my third time visiting this establishment. The food is pretty good, but when you go to a restaurant like this it's to experience the preparation of the food. The waiter was very pleasant and came around to check on us at perfect intervals. The chef left something be desired. He got annoyed with the waiter about something and rebuked him in front the table and proceeded to be very short with everyone. It was my son's first time, while he enjoyed it, I was disappointed with the chef. Other than that issue everything else was good and I wouldn't let that one chef prevent me from visiting again!
It was extremely over priced for sushi. Their cut is obviously not up to par and the freshness was a bit less then average. The hibachi was ok nothing special over all this place is trying to pass for something that doesnt equate to price. Your better off at Sakura for sushi and fried rice and beef.
A fun place for Japanese hibachi, although it is a little pricey. We enjoyed our meal in spite of few little annoyances. The restaurant is on the noisy side, and some of our silverware was not terribly clean and had to be changed. The service is attentive but certainly not elegant. Also there is no real wine menu so we stuck to beer, which was good.
The experience was excellent . We go there alot and it's always perfect. From walking in the door to leaving. The hosts are wonderful by greeting us immediately, then our server was impeccable as always. She never misses anything from down to the level of water in our cups. She is always very respectful and curtious. There is no other way to explain shiro of Japan but I know whenever we want a perfect lunch or dinner we know exactly where to go and that's shiro of Japan
