Hiro Sushi House

Had dinner plans with Phoebs and since we both can never turn down sushi, we went to Hiro Sushi House on the east side of Yonge Street (two units south of the Teashop 168). Luckily, this place offers free parking behind the restaurant, so I didn't have to do any crazy parallel parking on Yonge St with my van.

We ordered the Smoked Salmon Roll, Spicy Salmon Crunch Roll, and Parkview Roll (Salmon sashimi & shrimp tempura). And on top of all of that we ordered the Empress Sashimi dish (18 pieces of assorted sashimi), but we changed it all to salmon sashimi. Can you tell we really like salmon sashimi? I thought it would be too much food, but it turned out it was a perfect amount. We were stuffed afterwards.

The entire experience was really, really good. The sushi rolls were packed tightly, the sushi rice was sticky but not mushy, there was no random ingredients in the rolls that threw off the texture. It also came looking beautiful, which is always a good way to kick off your appetite. The salmon sashimi tasted fresh and they gave thick slices. I am so hungry right now thinking about it. The whole thing only cost us $40, so $20/person (and that covered tax and tip)

Simple & clean interior with wall decos I didn't even notice until now

Empress sushi plate, changed to all salmon ($14.99)


the Parkview Roll - Salmon, shrimp tempura, cucumber, avocado ($5.50)

Smoked Salmon Roll - Smoked salmon, artificial crab meat, cucumber, avocado ($5.00)

Spicy Salmon Crunch Roll ($5.95)

Verdict: I'd come here again and I would recommend it. The rolls are decently priced and for the quality that you get, it's very reasonable. It's also bigger than Sushi Bong down the street, so if you have a group of more than 3 people, you'd be more comfortable here.
