Very good entries are black cod and tempura. Nice dessert. Give a try, you will enjoy. I choose this place in the last day of me trip, I dont have a reservation and the restaurant is small. So lucky!

We checked out quite a few of the top rated sushi restaurants on our trip to Seattle and Shiros was the best. Their nigiri was melt in the mouth delicious. Would definitely recommend.

Years ago on a trip to Seattle, a hotel concierge pointed me to Shiro's as the best in Seattle. I tried it then and have gone back every time I've visited Seattle since.

I had high hopes that Shiros was going to be a really great sushi place. I actually found it to be mediocre. The sushi is somewhat overpriced, and I tried several other items on the menu including broiled black cod. It was all very good but not great.

I always to to Shiro's when travelling to Seattle. I took 3 business associates. This is the best sushi that I know of in Seattle. I worked in Japan before and the quality matches good places in Tokyo. I prefer sashimi and it was really fresh. I highly recommend it but you'll need a reservation. Favorites: Sockeye salmon, chu toro,... More

I am no Sushi expert, but I have eaten at one of the stalls outside of the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo so I like to think I have some credibility. Honestly, this place rivals that experience. We elected for the Sushi Omakase which is done in courses. From beginning to end the progression of fish made complete sense to... More

That´s the place to go in Seattle for having delicious Sushi in a very nice, Japan-like atmosphere. Usually I go there with the team and/or friends. Always good service, super fresh fish and sushi.

I had dinner here for the second time and it was better than the first time service-wise. The sushi and sashimi was first rate - prices in line with the quality.
