Shiro's Sushi Restaurant

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.

Kuno in Shizuoka to Nikko. #celebration #shiros
