Shiro Japanese Steak & Sefood House Burke Reviews
Jan 26, 2008
Shiro is a popular restaurant in Burke, VA, featuring the teppanyaki style of food preparation first introduced in the USA by Benihana. Diners are seated in groups of eight around a grill (or teppan) where the chef prepares the food in a show of skill. As in similar restaurants,the chef's performance and banter is a signficant part of the dining experience. The chefs at Shiro do put on a good show: flipping utensils in the air, creating the flaming onion volcano, and tossing a shrimp at each diner!
How is the food? Quite good in fact. Featured courses are Hibachi or Teriyaki Chiken or Steak and Hibachi Shrimp, Scallops, or Salmon. Entrees include a Japanese onion soup, a salad, vegetables, and fried or steamed rice. (Fried rice is recommended as the chef will prepare it for you on the grill.) Sushi, Gyoza (dumplings), and Shrimp or Vegetable Tempura, are among the appetizers available.
Shiro also has a separate Sushi Bar where freshly prepared Sushi may be selected. (Sushi Bar meals include miso soup and salad.)
Reservations are recommended as this popular restaurant is often crowded.
