We went here for our grandson's 11th birthday. It seems quite the place to celebrate kid's birthdays. Our chef was quite efficient and put on a good show, even tossing clumps of rice into our mouths. Interestingly, he was Hispanic, not Japanese. We ordered the sirloin steaks which were a nice size and cooked well. The meal was good and... More

This hibachi experience was horrible! The chef was really inexperienced and needed forever to get the food ready. On top of that the rice was burned and he put teriyaki on the chicken, even though we ordered just the regular chicken. All of the waiters were looking around and didn't bring any refill! My friend had to get up to... More

It was my very hibachi restaurant so no previous experience to compare it to so... the staff was nice and professional. The chef seemed experienced. The place in itself is clean and is located at a mall which makes it accessible by bus. Parking is also very cheap, i.e. $3 for up to 3 hours. The food was alright. My... More

Went here for a family dinner, the place was full and that mixed with all of the hibachi grills made the restaurant insanely hot. We were sweating and we weren't the only ones. Everyone looked like they were melting, trying to fan themselves with whatever they could get their hands on. There were no smiling faces...everyone just looked kind of... More

A lot of variety in sushi to choose from. Some were quite special. We ordered some different sushi and fishdishes to try and they all tasted good. Fresh sushi with good and quick service.

We enjoyed a relaxing meal in the front of this Steak & Sushi restaurant. Portions are plentiful, attentive service, and a good bar. Somewhat pricey compared to other local Japanese restaurants, but worth the extra cost. Include $3 for paid parking in the Atlas Mall lot.

The first hibachi spot I'd ever eaten at and the best so far. This is my go to spot...their food is delicious. The chefs are friendly. It is family style dining meaning you are seated with other guests but you won't be paying them any mind as you enjoy your awesome food. I'm pretty much a regular and never tire... More

While it was "Entertaining", that's not why I go to a restaurant. The Hibachi triple I ordered was too salty to the nth degree. The staff was terrific, accommodating and efficient. The steak was tough and salty as was the chicken. The salad dressing was watered down, and not tasty. For a meal that was $80.00 plus it was underwhelming.... More

Shiro of Japan has the reputation for providing patrons with an exceptional and authentic Japanese dining experience at affordable prices. The restaurant has more than a thirty year tradition of setting dining trends and providing exceptional service.

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.
