The Hiro Sushi Rip-off!

Cutiepettutie | Apr 9, 2009 09:12 PM

So my boyfriend wanted to try a new sushi place, this being Hiro Sushi (King and Jarvis, Toronto, ON), as he thinks that we need to try out different places. I personally prefer Kokyo Sushi at Yonge and Alexander (north of College) especially the top 3 rolls in the special rolls section of the menu. In any case, he told me that he saw on various websites that this is the best sushi place in Toronto. So we went. We really weren't sure as to what to order and the waitress recommended that we try the $35 chef special. We thought that this could be split between 2 people, but apparently the price tag was for one person as we discovered on the bill. Thats not even the bad part. The plate arrived. It was OK but absolutely nothing special. The rice already had wasabi and as I am not a fan of things being too spicy, I can't say that I enjoyed it at all. It did clear up my sinuses however. The food was otherwise ok at best, but don't go there if you want actual flavour that comprises of more things than wasabi. I personally would not return. It is not worth the price. Places such as this remind me that trying new things is sometimes not worth it!!! Don't go there, try Kokyo Sushi instead!!! Hiro Sushi is really stingy on the fish, very thin slices, complete rip-off!!!! For less than half of what you pay at Hiro Sushi, you will be much more than pleased!!!! I think Johnny Roll at Kokyo Sushi is like $12, and had more& better tasting fish than the whole $70 plate combined!!!

One thing that was ok is the white wine mousse with strawberries. While that is good, it is not worth the overall $100 price tag!
