Recently opened Shiro in new neighboring space to Lane Crawford would naturally set a pretty high expectation for any foodie venturing to try the eatery. We are happy to report that Shiro delivered wonderfully on most of our foodie expectations & stands out as a quality option for those looking for a higher quality japanese lunch set catering to the upper echelon Admiralty crowd

Ambience & spacing of tables were well apportioned & didn't obstruct walking even through the restaurant was packed & fully buzzing during our lunch time visit. The 165rmb Sashimi lunch set was decadently delicious & worth ordering again as generous portions & notable presentation were great compliments to the wide VARIETY of sashimi selection offered. Buttery thick scallops, fresh shrimp & rarer fish were welcomed highlight & a step above the standard tuna, salmon, yellowtail platters often found elsewhere

The pricier 208rmb deluxe sushi lunch set is perfect for the hungry male banker but could probably feed two girls appetitite - we higher recommend this set for the hungry luncher
Our third foodie ordered the tempura set (168rmb) & this was also generously portioned but probably the most generic of our three sets.

Variety of sushi pieces was one to remember & the efforts to make the usual lunch set interesting was highly appreciated by all. Pieces like the roast duck roll definately will definately be remembered the first the first time luncher to Shiro.

All in all, SHiro is a great lunch option for the admiralty dwellers, workers & shoppers alike. We would however, highly recommened saving their number on your phone as lunchtime reservations are a must. There seems to be more demand than supply of seats available - regardless of early or late lunch time goers
