About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.

We told the waiter about my husband food allergy which is Mushrooms. There was still mushroom for the hibachi. When we told the cook that we told the waiter about the food allergy, the cook got upset. He got an attitude.

We were celebrating my father-in-law's 94th birthday. We had a great time and so did he! And we took advantage of their special birthday offer of a $25 gift certificate and free birthday dessert. We would recommend this restaurant for a birthday celebration any time! When we were leaving, the manager even followed us outside just to wish him a happy birthday one more time.

They sure give you lots of food! I took home half my meal and finished it the next day. Great.
Only thing I did not like was the onion consume. I guess I am used to the good French style with cheese on top. Shrimp were great and I always like their lettuce salad with ginger dressing.

The drinks I think were the best part. The food itself could use some work but it’s not the worst I’ve had. It just doesn’t compare to some other great hibachi spots and the price makes you think it should.

Having been to several Japanese restaurants Shiro was a disappointment because of the smell of the restaurant. I would never recommend this restaurant.

Service was great Food was tasty. Although my allergies were considered I still got sick afterwards. It’s unfortunate that the mushrooms touch everything and I guess I might never be able to enjoy hibachi again.

Overall great atmosphere. I only wish that my chef was as enthusiastic as the chefs next to us. They really put on a show. I was hoping my kids would have liked our show but the chefs demeanor was a little off. As if he really didn’t want to make a great show of his own.

Shiro was underwhelming when it comes to ambiance, you get to your hibachi table and the grill was less then spotless, had food sauce and food debri everywhere, luckily the chef cleans the grill before he started cooking or I would've left. The service was ok but nothing spectacular, the biggest disappointment was the food, not horrible but nothing I would write home about, definitely would not go back, it was a blah experience overall.

I was so disappointed with the food. First time I ever had this experience with Shiro and I’ve been going to Shiro for over 15 years on Long Island. The noodles tasted bad, I think because of the sauce or how the grill was cleaned but they were terrible.

How do you mess up noodles?? Or veggies?!

The chicken was over cooked. So basically tough hibachi pieces of rubber.

Our waiter was not attentive at all. The person helping pack our food had their hands all over the inside of the foil containers.

Just not a good experience and I severely doubt I’ll be coming back there again.

We had a great time. The Chef was great, funny and it was very tasty. The only thing that I would say is that they did not provide one person with fried rice (the waitress misheard) and two specials came with wine which we found out too late that we were supposed to get. The downsides to going out on a holiday. But the food was delish!

The ambiance was amazing the staff was great the noise level was moderate but the food was the most disturbing I've ever had not to mention the amount of money in which i had to pay for the food it was unacceptable. The chef was boring and the food taste burnt the wait staff and the ambiance made my experience bearable.
