Even before you order your food, you know that Shiro Sushi is the real deal. When you enter the restaurant, chefs and servers call out “Irasshaimase!” which is the traditional greeting to customers in Japan. Take a seat at the U-shaped sushi bar to see the chefs work their magic with strictly fresh seafoods, or choose a cozy table and share traditional Japanese dishes with friends.
The restaurant has been operating in the same location on Cambie Street since 1989. The friendly service and delicious food at reasonable prices keep the regular customers coming back. The word tends to get out, too. Shiro Sushi has been voted into the best-of lists in the Georgia Straight and Vancouver Magazine, and won the Local Favourite award from Travelocity for “Top Insider Spot.” The menu includes a full selection of sashimi and sushi, as well as tempura, donburi, and noodles. A high turnover ensures the freshest sushi, and the restaurant also offers seasonal specialities with seafood imported from Japan.
Appetizers and sushi are perfect for sharing, or you can choose from a variety of set meals offered at lunch and dinner. The box lunches include miso soup, salad, and a selection of favourites served on a laquerware tray. Dinner combos include teriyaki and tempura, along with miso soup and ice cream – try the green tea flavour for an authentic Japanese dessert. Shiro Sushi is fully licensed and offers Japanese beers, a selection of premium sakes by the bottle, and shochu. And when you leave, you won’t get out the door without a chorus of “Thank you” from the staff.
