I went there by myself and ordered sashimi, gyoza, spring rolls. I enjoyed the sashimi and spring rolls the most. Miso soup was way to salty for my taste. The server did offer to dilute it with hot water. The restaurant is a former row house and gets lots of local residents. My server and the sushi chefs are engaging... More

Some friends and I visited here in April 2016. We had a groupon coupon and they honored it with no issues. We ordered the pork belly which was excellent! We also ordered calamari, which was also awesome! The warm saki was very tasty! Would definitely try this restaurant again!

I love this place! I'm always there and I'm always ordering for delivery. The sushi is great and the drinks are even better. If you have a chance, check this place out.

Went to Shiso last night for the first time. Pad Thai and Moo Goo Gai Pan for me and my partner, along with a Canton Roll. Terrific! Great service from Mike and overall staff friendliness. The happy hour from 4 - 7 Monday thru Thursday is a real deal as well, but would go anytime and will definitely do so.... More

Visited on a Thursday night during happy hour. They have deep discounts for happy hour on drinks and certain menu items. Tried a few different foods and all were really nice. Kamikaze sushi roll was nice, fresh with a good bit of spicy kick to it. Shrimp tempura roll was also very good, it's wonderful that it retains the tempura... More

I was extremely disappointed with the customer service and management. I bought a groupon for Shiso Tavern that cost me $15 for $30 dollars worth of food and drink. Upon arrival, the hostess made us aware that we could not use the groupon towards Happy Hour items. We then asked her if we could use it on non-happy hour items... More

Some friends and I were out in Canton and really craving pad thai, I had been to Shiso Tavern on the Canton square before and I know they have excellent sushi as well as other Asian delicacies (such as pad thai) so I suggested we head over there. We started our meal with an order of the Vegetable Spring Rolls.... More

If you need sushi and you live in Canton this place is definitely solid. Got 3 rolls and the "tuna nachos", all of which were really good! Especially loved the "nachos"! Quality of fish was great, everything was fresh, will definitely be back!

Sushi rolls are good but the standard fare. The atmosphere is great, with a young kinda vibe to it. The service was friendly, but extremely slow. There was only one person to take care of the bar and all the seated guests, as well as those waiting at the door. Pricing is average for sushi of this type. Worth a... More

Just a block from our B& B, this Asian bistro is top notch. We enjoyed wonderful sushi and more tasty delights.
