Hiro Sushi Restaurant
Master chef Hiro Yoshida is a hero in the world of Toronto sushi, and this restaurant is a direct reflection of his skills. Hiro combines modern technique, traditional ways, and a touch of North American preferences to give his customers a culinary experience they won't forget. Patrons who know Hiro choose to dine omakase style, leaving the timing and menu selection in the hands of the maestro. They are offered chunks of Fresh Salmon, Seared Tuna, Vinegar Mackerel and soft-shelled Crab seasoned with Ginger, Onion and spicy red Hiroshima seed.
First of all, you have to understand why you go to this restaurant in the first place? Most would say 'to have an authentic Japanese Sushi experience'... Then you're in the right place! Japanese Sushi experience is the equivalent of ZEN. You need to forget about time, forget about service, forget about food. And then take in whatever you get. Let your mind go of pre-conceptions. Even if they tell me to go eat on the floor, I would appreciate having a space. If you desire fast food and standard service, go to McDonald (or in this case, cheap Sushi restaurant)...
Delayed service and completely incompetent waitress . I think she does not speak english at all!
Our Miso soup was delivered to the next table.
First order of rolls took forever and came before above mentioned Miso soup.
second order of rolls (we were hungry and rolls were REALLLLY SMALL) never came so we decided to cancel.
Second oredr of rolls came after we cancel and waitress was forcing us to pay for them even though we were totally upset and waiting for check !
it took more than 5 mins to get the check after we cancel and waitress even said that we had to take it!!!
I was told the service is bad, so better to sit at the sushi bar and get the food directly from Hiro. Hiro, however, was paying all the attention to his regulars, and the paltry items in our menu were coming at longer and longer intervals. The fish was good, but not out of this world. In the end we walked out hungry. Don't go there. If you want good Japanese food in that area, try Nami - cheaper, and a better experience.
Best and most authentic sushi in Toronto. We go there for special occasion and always sit at the bar and order omakase. Hiro has so many kinds of fish you'd never get the same sushi twice at a meal. Although it is definitely not cheap and I am not rich we always save up money to go there.
If you are looking for great deals -- chunky salmon and tuna badly cut -- and don't really care about the quality, go to other Korean-operated sushi restaurants. Hiro is for those who know sushi. Sushi is supposed to be small enough so you can finish in one bite.
The Omakase style menu is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If you at one Asian restaurant in Toronto, it should be here... price notwithstanding, of course. Just trust Chef Hiro, and eat what comes to your plate. It will be delicious, no doubt.
What a ripoff! I can't understand why this place gets ANY good reviews. To order a lunch special for $20 and receive 2oz of sashimi doesn't cut it.
You shouldn't waste your time here.
Bring some lunch with you so you won't go hungry. The market is right around the corner.
Stay FAR AWAY!
Ordered a lunch sashimi special. Got few tiny pieces after waiting forever. I don't know if I've ever felt this ripped off in my life before. Sushi there seemed ok, but sashimi was the most ridiculous I've ever seen. It's unfortunate some people are after quick buck. Perhaps they got few dollars from me, but I'll never go there again and will tell people to stay away from Hiro Sushi for the rest of my life.
The food was innovative, technical perfect and very, very tasty. I am glad that we were on someone's expense account -- but it would have been worth paying for! I have not been to Japan but have had sushi in Vancouver and San Francisco. Hiro is comparable to the best in those cities.
