First off our waitress was great. Good recommnendations and attentive. We have eaten a lot of middle eastern food, in North America and the middle east. I believe there are better places in Vancouver. It started off with a disappointing Fattoush. Although the salad was tasty it was not a fattoush, no mint, no sumac. We stuck to the mezze which were average. All dishes came out at the same time which made me feel like they were sitting under a warmer ready to go, puleeze, Falafel should be freshly made, even in the falafel stands of Israel they are made freshly. The fried cauliflower was good but whoopey not special. The lamb kibbeh was good but not special, they tasted like lamb burgers. Anyway I may be sounding harsh but for all the good reviews I have read I was expecting more. I will try lunch and a couple of their desserts but was not wowed.

$28 lunch special, 1 appie and a main and "complimentary " dessert, why do they patronize us with the complimentary crap? Anyway, booked my table on opentable, there was no problem we were escorted to our table and our waiter was very attentive. We asked for the burger to be rare but they would not do it, each person we asked gave a different answer why they would not so it became a running joke. The truffle and fontina cheese pizza was rich without being rich flavours that melted together kindly on a crispy thin crust. The short ribs were moist, but my companions were dry, weird we traded to test. The jalepeno bread crumbs that came with the ribs were crunchy hot, what a great combo.
The others ordered halibut, chicken and salads and everyone felt their meal was well above par. The service was thoughtful, the beer and wine list solid. Would we go again? Yes, soon? no, it is a treat place, I was playing staycation and enjoyed eating well in town.

My wife and my tween kid and I went for a meal around 1pm, service was good. My son wanted to try the buffalo mozzarela on the pizza. We ordered the margarita and a fungi pizza, a lovely salad and plate of olives.
The key to a good pizza, is crust, sauce, cheese and toppings, the sauce tasted like tomatoes and the cheese was subtle but flavourful. If you do not like thin crust, just stay home. The crust was solid enough to support the toppings, edge crispy enough to hear the crunch and the innards chewy. The funghi was lovely with the right amount of cheese and shrooms. Cheers to the chef.
The salad was a new creation using fresh local veggies, the olives for $5 were worth it, good to share and a good selection. The salad at $10 seemed pricy, the pizzas at around $15 were good value.
I rate at solid as we were there after the lunch rush and only once.

We have been going for 18 years, we have tried others just to mix it up but few meet the standards and quality that Shiro has managed. Best BC roll, try the chicken isobeage (spelling not sure) best kitchen item. If you want fat salmon, go for the salmon belly. Udon broth is not a mix but freshly made for each bowl. Ask what is special ( not what is on the board but what fish is nicest of the day).

Shiro has survived the Cambie disaster thanks to his many dedicated customers.

My son and I have been going off and on since it opened, always impressed with the simplicity of the place, both food and service. On our last visit something changed, the food was greasy, the service lacking (the waitress was nice just inexperienced), my son's meal came at least 8 minutes before mine. I was also surprised on a Saturday night by the lack of people. I mentioned to my son that I think it is under new management and it does not have the same goodness that use to be there. In the end when I went to pay they would not take my credit card I had to go to the bank for cash, when I returned they told me they took debit card, oh well the walk was good. I asked why they stopped taking credit card and they said new management. I said, I thought so.
What was strange was as I was paying a another waiter came in carrying what looked like take out from another restaurant- not a good sign.

Unless they clean up their act and get back to the what it was in the past we will not be back.
