During our trip to Seattle and on Thanksgiving week, my son insisted to visit Shiro's due to high reviews from TripAdvisor. Due to the popularity of the restaurant, he had reserved a table for our family.
The place is rather small but we were properly sit, thanks to the reservation. After looking at the menu and prices, I am a bit concern because the price is expensive: $4 - $5 per piece. I was hoping that it is better be good. My wife did not like Japanese food much so only ordered: Geoduck butter and soft shell crab. My son and his girl-friend had ordered only only his standard list: fat tuna, fat salmon, etc. but also everything on the Fishes from Japan special.
The fish portion are small comparing to similar priced restaurants in San Francisco: however, the sushi rice is quite good. The rice is the focus of the sushi, not the fish according to some Sushi chefs. If that is the case, then the sushi here is quite good. The best part is that they have fishes directly from Japan and they are quite tasty. I don't think you can go wrong in this category: you either like or don't like. And all of us liked these fishes. In many sushi restaurants, you don't normally see a long list of fishes from Japan beside the standard tuna, smelts, salmon, etc.
It was a good dinner with fishes that we don't normally get in regular sushi restaurants. Oh, btw the Geoduck Butter is quite good: it kind of melted in your mouth (sort of.) The bill of over $300 will hurt me for a few days.
