Japanese
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.

This place is amazing , we go there a lot to eat and the service is always very good and the chefs are very entertaining. The only issue we had and it wasn’t really a big deal is that it was a little bit hot inside but other than that it’s a great place and we will continues to eat here

Visited for a Birthday dinner, had an excellent time. Staff was helpful and accommodated for guest. Would have given a perfect score however there were a few hiccups. Waiter was unnattentive, chef lost his joy de vivre mid meal, and things were chaotic near the end. Other than that this was an excellent meal. Highly recommend, the ambiance is fun and playful. The maitre d did an excellent job at fixing the hiccups that occurred. All in all, the experience was worth it. Highly recommend.

Always a good meal. Never disappointed. Every time we eat here we go to the sushi side and not the hibachi. We never have to wait and service is excellent.

We had to wait an extra half hour from the reservation time. The chef left half of our chicken raw and the steak very chewy. Overall ok

Been going here for years. Good place to bring a date or the family. My daughter loves it here so can’t complain. Parking is great at atlas park so can’t beat that. Pretty standard Hibachi place however but better than most places in NYC from my experience

Can get super crowded but the food is good and it is a fun spot to get dinner. If you don't fill a table, you will be dining with people you don't know, just to be aware. Definitely a cool place to take kids, they will get a kick out of watching their food be prepared.

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.

The restaurant service and food was great. The only thing that was annoying that I had a reservation at 8:15 PM but wasn’t seated until around 9:15 PM - 9:30 PM. Besides that, everything went well.

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.

It was an unforgettable experience. I Ioved it from the beginning until the end: the performance of the chef’s skills was simply outstanding; and the food was fresh and well prepared. It was like a “Broadway show” of fine cuisine.
Thanks, Shiro.

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.
