  • panndora88 reviewBeautiful, delicious food served in a warm atmosphere. Completely changed my mind about eating sashimi!

  • bevmcgee reviewThis restaurant no longer open for lunch. This is perhaps the best Japanese food on the West Coast, and surely in the Northwest. Shiro is a genius with only the FRESHeEST fish available.

    44444 by bevmcgee

  • huirijaDefinitely try the sea urchin.

    55555 by huirija

  • Lauren P.We had a great meal but it was COMPLETELY overshadowed by the fact that they tried to charge us for things we never got. My husband was embarrassed & didn't want to correct them a second time.

    22222 by Lauren P.

  • Rebecca CChef's omakase is awesome

    55555 by Rebecca C

  • Lucille F.OMG! The fish is amazing! Best sashimi I've had outside Japan. The Omakase menu is pricey but worth every penny.

    55555 by Lucille F.

  • Anna C.The deluxe sashimi platter was good for 2

    33333 by Anna C.

  • Brian S.Maybe the best sushi of all time. I don't say that lightly. Amazing selection. The omakase menu marches you through up 45 different exquisite types. Sit at the bar to get the run down on each piece

    55555 by Brian S.

  • Elinor S.SUSHI! Soo good no words to describe.

    55555 by Elinor S.

  • Mark SYou can't go wrong with ordering Omakase, amazing

    55555 by Mark S

  • Kristin JThe only way to do Shiro's: Omakase at the bar. Go early, get on the list, leave your phone number and head to a bar nearby while you enjoy aperitifs while you wait.

    55555 by Kristin J

  • Joseph S.Go to the sushi bar, it's a better experience than the tables.

    33333 by Joseph S.

  • EmilyThere are arguably better omakase experiences in the US but this one has always stood out in my mind.

    55555 by Emily

  • Denise KThe quality of the fish/food is outstanding. You need to book in advance. The service is quick and polite. It's really tasty, if you love sushi it's a must go.But I still prefer Kashiba.

    55555 by Denise K

  • Suzanne P.Really a nice treat. Treat yourself to the kinmedai and buri nigiri. (Golden snapper and adult yellowtail).

    55555 by Suzanne P.

  • David DPremium Omakase

    55555 by David D

  • Patrick BuggyBest sushi I've had in my entire life! Ordered the chef's selection of sushi, and it came with an excellent miso soup to start. Loved trying such a range of different types of sushi.

    55555 by Patrick Buggy

  • Varun COmakase at the Sushi bar is the way to go!

    55555 by Varun C

  • Fernando DThe $75 tasting menu was superb. It was definitely the best sushi I've had in Seattle.

    55555 by Fernando D

  • Rainbeau AWonderful sushi. The omakase isn't too spendy.

    55555 by Rainbeau A

  • Kai C.It's good but it's not great. Go to Sushi Kashiba instead.

    55555 by Kai C.

  • Maggie PWe went the eat until you're full route and were very pleased! The fatty tuna and prawns were especially great, but we enjoyed everything.

    55555 by Maggie P

  • crystal l.really enjoyed the omakase and the service was great too

    55555 by crystal l.

  • Jacquie R.The quality of the fish is outstanding. I've been twice now, and if I go back for a third it'll be for the omakase. Otherwise it's a bit pricey for rolls and nigiri.

    55555 by Jacquie R.

  • JYGet a seat at sushi bar and talk to chefs. It's fun. Had sashimi plate, chawanmushi, and flan creme Brulee. All great

    55555 by JY

  • Melon L.One of the most amazing sushi restaurants I've ever been to! Omakase is a must.

    55555 by Melon L.

  • Katja jBook the table way ahead and be on time. Don't order sashimi if you are not experienced with raw fish. Service and food are excellent!

    33333 by Katja j

  • Falcon Darkstar ASome of the best sushi in Seattle.

    55555 by Falcon Darkstar A

  • Morgan LThe sushi here is really fresh. Particularly outstanding were the scallops, salmon, sweet shrimp, and tuna.

    55555 by Morgan L

  • Carl Lu CThe omakase is worth the money! The blue fine tuna belly just melts in your mouth. Fantastic.

    55555 by Carl Lu C

  • Guizheng SGood nigiri. Get seafood tempura. Namban-zuke is extremely good for appetizer

    55555 by Guizheng S

  • Deborah A.I wish I could eat here every day. Amazing sushi. They paint each slice with soy sauce at the table so you won't drown the fish in a swamp of wasabi and soy. Go here.

    55555 by Deborah A.

  • Chong Han ChuaWait for the bar and get omakase. It's worth it.

    55555 by Chong Han Chua

  • Christine L.Leave it to the experts and get the premium omakse.

    55555 by Christine L.

  • Mouni ReddyMaybe I don't like authentic sushi that much. It was OK, not really worth the price for me.

    33333 by Mouni Reddy

  • Arthur MGreat dinner, it's expensive but worthy

    55555 by Arthur M

  • Karsten McVayOrder everything

    55555 by Karsten McVay

    55555 by Amanda S.

  • Rochelle AHonestly, everything is good.

    55555 by Rochelle A

    55555 by Sherry L.

  • Ricardo H.Excellent sushi place; worths every dollar spent. Get there early, line starts before 5:30pm. Ordered anything from today's special.

    55555 by Ricardo H.

  • Allison Y.Omakase. Always!!

    55555 by Allison Y.

  • Andreas CIt's not bad and the price is reasonable but I don't get the hype. Quality of the fish is good but the rice is a) too cold b) too much vinegar and c) too much

    33333 by Andreas C

  • Jacob G.Sit at the counter and order the chef's omakase.

    55555 by Jacob G.

  • Bobbi S.Small place. Good food. Nice price. Recommend reservations.

    55555 by Bobbi S.

  • Peter W.The omakase is an experience. Shiro deconstructs each fish with several cuts of differing fattiness.

    55555 by Peter W.

  • Fiona ChenOmakase period.😋

    55555 by Fiona Chen

  • Annie WangIf you sit at the sushi bar for omakase,the restaurant will charge you by pieces instead of a set price. We ended up paying 30% more (~$150/person)

    22222 by Annie Wang

  • Carl F.Omakase. That is all.

    55555 by Carl F.

  • Nima TalebiThe sushi is amazing. Expensive, but worth it.

    55555 by Nima Talebi

  • Mingfei Y.Grab the counter seat for Omakase. Usually less people on Monday.

    55555 by Mingfei Y.

  • Vincent L.Come for the omakase. That is all.

    55555 by Vincent L.

  • IsameowOmakase! Best quality sushi I had. If you want the first seating when they open at 5:30, get in line at around 4:45.

    55555 by Isameow

  • keri d.Go with the omakase. Also try their stir fry geoduck and sea urchin nigiri

    55555 by keri d.

  • Mingfei Y.Omakase by the courter is great. Chef is friendly.

    55555 by Mingfei Y.

  • J C.After tasting the sushi here, sushi everywhere else taste really nasty. Sushi literally melts in your mouth...

    33333 by J C.

  • Alejandro JShiro's roll has the perfect amount and balance of ginger and mackerel within them 🍣🌾

    55555 by Alejandro J

  • Brian J.Shiro's is legitimate traditional sushi. Keep it simple, sit at the sushi bar and order Omakase.

    55555 by Brian J.

  • Michael D.What can't I say. Best sushi experience in the United States. Omakase is technically a sushi tasting menu here. A must for sushi fans.

    55555 by Michael D.

  • Omer Z.The 5-piece "tuna festival" is pricy but really great if you're not too hungry.

    55555 by Omer Z.

  • Casey H.The Shiro Hand Wrap Roll is one of the best pieces of sushi I've had.

    55555 by Casey H.

  • Mark WongThe sushi was AMAZING! However, I was sad to hear shiro has retired. Still would highly recommend the restaurant.

    55555 by Mark Wong

  • ginny h.$65 Shiro'a omakase comes with generic pieces of fish. Nothing special about this place. The restaurant itself is boring and rundown. I'll be sticking to my 15 East in NYC. Thanks

  • Men's Health MagChef Shiro Kashiba trained under the legendary Jiro Ono in Tokyo so it's no wonder Kashiba's Belltown stalwart offers the best raw fish experience in Seattle.

    55555 by Men's Health Mag

  • Katherine M.My friend Akshay says, "Some of the best sushi I've ever had. Get the omakase and the egg dessert."

    55555 by Katherine M.

    55555 by Eric V.

  • Brett M.This is the freshest, finest sushi I've ever had. The prices are great for what you're getting here. Make reservations a week or so in advance if you want to eat at normal mealtime hours.

    55555 by Spencer S.

  • Iain D.Omakase is the best.

    55555 by Iain D.

  • Alaa S.Omakase is the way to go. Sit at the bar and let them fill you with happiness. Don't expect any Americanized crap. And if you're lucky, yes, Shiro San might be the one serving you at the bar himself!

    55555 by Alaa S.

  • Martin R.Sushimi Sampler (13 Piece)

    55555 by Martin R.
