Reviewed 23 May 2018

Made a deliberate visit to the restaurant after reading reviews about it.
There is a long queue at dinner time - we waited for about 40 mins.
We ordered both the fried and sashimi versions of the Toyama white shrimp.
There is nothing to rave about the tempura but we loved the fresh delicate flavour of the sashimi white shrimps. When you rder the sashimi set, you will still get to try the fried shrimps served as a small side dish.

Shiroebiya, specializing in rice bowls with fried Toyama white shrimp was another popular spot. The white shrimps were so tiny, the shrimp taste was barely recognizable. The 1300 - 1700 yen price was bit much for what tasted like a fast food quality meal.

When I visited this restaurant long line have already been made, but worth waiting!
We really enjoyed fresh white shrimp, in sashimi bowl and tempura, and I recommend to have sashimi bowl and small tempura.

This place is famous for Shiroebi-a small white shrimp which is a local delicacy. This isn't a place to relax & chat. You buy a ticket from a machine, take a seat, give the ticket to a staff, eat & leave. Don't take me wrong, the staff were not pushy but people were waiting in a queue. The price for Shiroebi with rice/soup is ¥2500、not cheap. But they hand-peel the shells, very labour intensive. You might be lacky to see them at work through a glass window.

If u like shrimp, walk no further right after you enter the main door it is the 1st shop on the right. I tried the udon next door on the 2nd day and wished I had eaten the same food here again. The shrimp is so fresh yes you can see it from the window too. Can be pricy but hey there's a lot of effort to make it look pretty and fresh. Fresh supply of tea and other water. Hearty meal.. satisfaction guaranteed!
