Shiro's Sushi Restaurant offers premium sushi and Japanese cuisine from a talented team of chefs, located in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood.
In 1994, master sushi chef, Shiro Kashiba, opened his namesake, Shiro’s Sushi Restaurant, in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood. His blending of classical Japanese technique with the Pacific Northwest’s wealth of local seafood and ingredients set the bar that others aspire to. In 2014, after an amazing 20-year run, Chef Kashiba handed over the renowned restaurant to a capable culinary team lead by Chef Jun Takai who carries forth the restaurant legacy and expands the pursuit of artisan sushi craftsmanship by way of advanced training and culinary experiences.

The early season of Ama Ebi is running now in Canada! It’s the optimal time to enjoy the sweetness of Spot Prawns as sushi, while we often fry the heads for a true delicacy. #freshcatch #sushiprofile
Today is National Shrimp Day! Tell us how you prefer to eat shrimp – Sushi? Chawanmushi? Or perhaps as tempura? #NationalShrimpDay
A great way to “ignite” your palate for a night of sushi is with our Shishito Pepper starter - Flash fried, sauteed and splashed with a bit of soy. While most will be flavorful and slightly sweet, the roughly 1 in 10 hot ones will wake you up! #Shishito #sushistarter
Do you know the SIX different types of sushi? Here are four – who can name the other two? 1) Chirashizushi (scattered sushi) 2) Inarizushi (named after the Shinto god Inari) 3) Makizushi (rolled sushi) 4) Narezushi (matured sushi) #SushiTrivia #SushiFacts
We are excited to have #Isaki at Shiro’s! Exclusive to specific rocky shorelines of Japan, the light and delicate meat has a very high fat content, showcased by the layer of fat visible between the skin and the meat. It’s this delicious fat layer, combined with a slight sweetness of the meat that makes Isaki a perfect sushi bite. #sushiprofile
It’s National Salad Month and at Shiro's, that means Seafood Salad and Seaweed Salad, made with wakame! #NationalSaladMonth #Salad #Seaweed

Our summer hours are up and running early! We’re open until 10:30 p.m. nightly. Dine with us later into the night, beginning at 5:30 p.m. #Dinner #everyday #ShirosSushi
Our sushi chefs dream of sushi in their sleep! Their knife skills are of the utmost importance and they take great pride in the whole fish they breakdown, the precision skills on each piece of sushi, and even their cutting of vegetables and more, served alongside our sushi. #NoJobTooSmall #ChefsAtWork #KnifeSkills #ShirosChefs
Firefly Squid gets its name from the blue glow it emits during spawning season. Only three inches in length, it’s available for just one month of the year and we are honored to still be serving the delicacy for another week or two. #FireflySquid #sushi
Happy Earth Day! Our chefs maximize every part of the fish possible, from utilizing the heads and bones for fish stock to capitalizing on the succulent skin and every piece of tender meat available. #earthday #chefsatwork #sushi #nowaste
#SushiFacts: Hatsugatsuo, or bonito, was one of the earliest Edo style sushi fish first enjoyed. They are savored this time of year for their leanness, which showcases the real bonito taste. #bonito #seasonalfish #freshcatch #DidYouKnow
Earlier this week we received blue fin tuna from Japan. Highly prized for its marbling and fat content, this fish has earned the title of “King of sushi.” We are serving it this week!
It’s a beautiful day in #Seattle and we have a new delivery of gorgeous, rich and melt-in-your-mouth Blue Fin Tuna! Our sushi chefs are preparing the colossal fish for you this week! #ChefsatWork #ShirosChefs #freshcatch #Shirossushi
Our state boasts some of the best clams in the world – Manila clams! Known as “asari” in Japan. They say that Washington clams actually originated in Japan: When Washington began farming oysters, some species of Japanese oysters were imported and Japanese Manila Clams happened to be mixed in the shipment. The clams thrived in Washington waters and continue to do so today! #manilaclams #clams #didyouknow #sushihistory
If you’re dining in a large group, you don’t have to miss out on our omakase. While our sushi bar is wonderful for 1-2 people, our dining room offers omakase too, giving larger groups and all sushi-lovers a chance to experience a custom chef’s menu. #ShirosChefs #ChefsatWork #Omakase
Bonito, or Katsuo, is in prime season right now! It’s one of the most versatile fish, tasting delicious whether seared, grilled, stuffed, marinated, broiled or of course as sashimi, or nigiri, with skin on or off. #bonito #katsuo
While we are known for our #sushi, we offer many other a la carte items as well, including our perfectly fried tempura! Delicious as a course during omakase or on its own for vegetarians, expectant mothers or those just wanting to bite into the slight crunch of vegetable or shrimp tempura. #tempura #vegetarian
We offer wonderful, housemade miso soup. Did you know that miso soup is traditionally eaten at the end of the meal, not at the beginning as in many cultures. This is done to aid in digestion following the meal. #SushiFacts #DidYouKnow #Miso
Longer days mean later hours for us! We are thrilled to offer our sushi, sake and more until 10:30 p.m. nightly! #NewHours
