Shiro i Shiro


Stylish and well designed restaurant with Asian-European fusion and celebrity factor. Priced accordingly. Located in the The Lux 11 Hotel (but you will not feel as if this is a hotel-restaurant).

Catherine Hickley writes an excellent review on Bloomberg's, summarising with 3/4 stars ("First-class of its kind"). She mentions, among others, the stylish design, the amazing sushi (and other fusion dishes), the celebrity factor (Judd Law, Mick Jagger and Sharone Stone, among others), and the good - but Berlin-slow - service. Read it and drawl.

Another review refers mostly to the design, in an article titled cool restaurants around the globe
