I have enjoy my lunch with my wife at this Japanese fine dining restaurant, the staff are attentive, friendly and warmed. Their sushi and sashimi are fresh and their bento are above par. Go for it..!!
Third or fourth visit today and walked away feeling cheated. Always enjoyed the the freshness of the sashimi of this restaurant. I have tried the lunch set meals on previous visits and enjoyed them thoroughly. Was short on time today so we decided to just order a 2 medium chiraishizushi and sashimi for 2.
Prices are fixed for chiraishizushi so that was fine, Sashimi platter for 2 which included 2 prawns, 2 slices of tuna belly, 2 slices of tuna cheeks, 2 slices of geoduck, 2 slices of scallops and 4 slices of fish and the bill for the sashimi- $150. That works out to $10.70 per slice of sashimi.
I was wondering why the chef took the bill from the waitress and wrote some things on it, which never happened before.
Want to ke-toke also not like mah. Do not recommend unless you want to walk away an idiot.
one of the best japanese restaurants in town with the whole package of wonderful ambience and great food.

Shiraishi is one of those places that towkays and bankers with fat expense accounts love to dine at. The restaurant consistently serve up the most exquisite flavours by rotating its menu regularly and focusing on the seasonal's best.
Try to get a table at the counter because you usually get entertained by the chefs. Plus, you invariably get a lesson on Japanese dining from the chefs. Apparently, all of the pretty flowers and greens on your plate are meant to be eaten and not placed on the plate just for decorative purposes. You just need to know how to eat those seemingly inedible stuff.
We got the Sushi Kaiseki Set ($170) which has 8 courses that features the best of what Autumn has to offer.
1) Amuse Bouche of the day was a dollop of chilled smooth potato mash with carrots and cucumber, very creamy and refreshing, a great start to a fantastically memorable meal
2) Appetizers. My favourite was the chilled Sesame Tofu block in the middle, floating in a puddle of shoyu and with a dab of freshly grated wasabi for a piquant heat
3) Pickled fried fish was also served chilled as part of the trio of appetizers, this was savoury but nicely refreshing. The fish was so soft that it could be eaten whole, bones and all
3) Steamed Baby Yam and Gingko on a stick, also part of the starters. The gingko nuts were so soft they practically melted in the mouth, their mild nuttiness enhanced simply with a sprinkling of salt. The yam, meant to be picked up with the fingers and squeezed out from the leafy shell, was creamy, smooth and delicate. Such simple uncomplicated flavours
4) Sashimi was, as expected, exquisite and unbelievably fresh. Thickly sliced, these were generous pieces of fish
5) The Steamed Dish consisted shimeiji mushrooms, luxurious freshly shredded hairy crab, baby lady's fingers set atop a chunk of radish and then steamed to fragrant perfection. Yuzu zest provided a citrusy zing to the savoury dish
6) Grilled Dish of soy-glazed seabream fillet, with shitake mushroom. Soy glaze imparted just enough flavour to the mild flaky fish.
7) Sushi - soft perfectly formed rectangular rice, a dollop of freshly grated wasabi and a sliver of incredibly fresh sashimi made for a recipe of wonderfully clean flavours
8) Clam Soup, despite its deceptively clear appearance, was amazingly rich in depth and unami flavour
