Authentic Japanese Cuisine Arrives on Long Island

Shiro of Japan introduced hibachi-style cooking to Long Island when we opened our first location in Carle Place in 1972. Our specialty is an authentic Japanese cooking art form, known as teppanyaki (“teppan” meaning iron plate or steel sheet and “yaki” meaning stir-frying). Our unique style of traditional Japanese cuisine and live chefs is one of the New York metropolitan area’s most sought-after culinary experiences.
