There sushi is amazing, the best in Albany area. Best Spicy Tuna and Philly Roll ever. Also the nigiri comes is large pieces. HIRO's is the only place I want hibachi. Just there sauces alone make me not want hibachi any where else.

I've eaten here hundreds of times, because Chin, the owner and her husband John, are truly warm, welcoming and good chefs. Chin is the sushi chef and the food is 100% reliable and delicious. It simply doesn't cost any more than places that I don't...More
