Japanese in the Marlboro MA area??

Shiro's in Berlin - does anyone know if this place is still open? If it is, has anyone been there lately. I remember it as having really slow service but the food was very good.

Any other suggestion for Japanese in the Area?

  1. If that is the place on Rte. 62 right next to 495, yes it's still open. I haven't been, but they always seem to have a fair number of cars in the parking lot.

      Last time I went there - which is within the past year - the place was closed up and appeared vacant.

        I have to apologize. I went searching on line and actually found a review from Feb 2008. I guess they are open. Always looked closed. I stand corrected.

          If it's the place that is in a house converted to a restaurant right next to the Exxon and the 495 - Rte. 62 exit, there were cars in the parking lot last week when I went by.

      2. I quite enjoy Yama Zakura just off route 20 in Northboro. Small place, but tasty sushi.

          Agree about Yama Zakura.....i think a little pricier than i remember Shiro being though.

        2. I really like Mikaku and find it a step above Yama Zakura, a step above Zipango and a short step away fro Baba,

            Baba is without a doubt the finest sushi in this part of the state. Having never been to Mikaku, what, in your opinion, makes it a cut above the aforementioned places?

          2. We always go to Fugakyu Cafe in Sudbury.
