Very overpriced and quality was disappointing. The quality of the £48 sashimi platter was not really worth it. It was obvious that they used frozen fish and some of them had a slight smell to it. The food on the conveyor belt was too overpriced too- 4 small california rolls for £4.80! However, the atmosphere was nice and quiet.

Had a lovely meal yet again! We were looked after very well by the staff and the food was very good. The only down side was that some of the dishes took a long time to arrive (and had to be chased up). Overall, a very good meal out with my family.

We went on a Wednesday night. It was extremely quiet. The sushi train didn't look that great. I guess due to the lack of people there wasn't much on offer. It may be more of a lunch place. I wouldn't recommend this place on a week night.

I’ve been coming to sushi Hiroba for quite a while (first time 2011 - we celebrated our anniversary there). In the last year they downsized menu and unfortunately stopped serving my favourite eel sushi in the set menu. Yes, it wasn’t that popular - fair enough. But the presentation of the dishes doesn’t look as nice as it used to. Before they used to service sets in the fancy dragon shape. Also, no attention paid for small details: menu was slippery, glasses weren’t polished, the wasabi had been sitting for a while before being served and was dry, water jug needed polishing as well. I do hope management will pay attention and work towards keeping quality at the highest levels

The place has a sushi train that seems like the sushi just goes around for days with out being changed over. You would probably get better sushi from a grocery store. Everything was dry and not worth while. They had limited selection of choice going around and nothing being added. They then want to charge a 12.5% service free. There was a tone of staff just standing around, the manager seemed to berate them ever chance he could get. We had two empty water glasses just sitting there almost the entire time and only a few other tables. I am sad I used open table to book this before I looked at the place.

It used to be one of the best in London for their sushi set rolls. However since November 2018 when they changed their menu, not only they removed the roll sets but also the quality went down and the prices high. It was so bad that we couldn't finish our food. We gave our feedback the manager. To be honest Tesco's sushi tasts better and is fresher.

Lovely Sushi. We had a bottle of wine to go with the food and at one point we’re given free seared tuna to have with the wine which was a nice touch.

The Menu has changed and is different to what is on the website. Some of our favorite dishes no longer exist. I think we will opt for Sushi Samba in the future as they have more variety, better atmosphere and are the same price. The food is nice but its such a shame the menu has changed.

Love this Holborn sushi restaurant! It is rather unassuming, yet it provides fresh, tasty and quality sushi dishes. The service is curteous and prompt.
The only criticism would be that some cooked mains taste too salty.

I love Sushi Hiroba. Been eating here for over 10 years and it’s still my “go to” Japanese. Menu has changed recently and not yet convinced for the better. Not quite as good value as it used to be but still relatively affordable compared to other places.

A nice little restaurant to check out just outside of Holborn tube station.
The only thing that let's it down is that the restaurant does not provide enough detail with it's food menu. If you are not familiar with the names of the dishes, you will be further bewildered by what the dish may include.

Another thing is that the menu on the website is out of date. There was a Chicken Udon Noodle dish that I was really looking forward to, however was informed that they no longer serve this dish. I was disappointed. I ordered the Beef Bibimbap instead, it was okay, but nothing to write home about. It could do with a lot more beef actually.

The waiting staff were very polite and friendly and the food was very well prepared and served expediently.

I did not fancy Sushi... I don't have the stomach for it.

Great restaurant with really good food. The staff could be more attentive though. We werent seated with a drinks menus, and it became a bit of a job to get hold of someone to order more food and get the bill. Considering theres a service charge on the meal, i'd expect better service.

The food was generally very good, but both our cooked main dishes were a bit too salty... All the items on the conveyor belt, instead, were fresh and tasty, with an excellent balance of ingredients and flavours!
The only two criticisms are that the portions in this place verge on the small side (including the dessert) for the price, and that the menu is not varied enough.
The front of the house and the table service were professional, courteous and friendly!
All in all, a very good place to enjoy Japanese food.

First time back since the menu has changed: food is still really good, but it seems to have become much more expensive. And no bento boxes anymore! So, will definitely go back but maybe not as frequently as before

Liked the decor although not the big old heating unit on ceiling. Looked like it needed a clean
Food was nice but chicken teriyaki was served in massive pieces where it should have been a fillet that is sliced and a little on the dry side.
Attentive staff
Over all 6/10

The sushi was incredible and the chef behind the conveyor belt was very welcoming! He gave us free potato salad which was AMAZING and was very happy to recommend dishes. He also showed us how the Japanese eat Sushi the correct way. I would 100% go back.

Overpriced sushi and bad service. Clueless staff not paying attention. Lunch for 2 was inadequate and cost over 70 pounds with no alcohol. Only redeeming feature is the hiroba roll. Go somewhere else for better Japanese food.

We had a lovely time at Sushi Hiroba. We selected the restaurant for the conveyor belt sushi, as my kids love it, and we enjoyed a good quality sushi in a friendly environment. It's certainly a place where we will come back for a family occasion or a casual friend gathering.

Nice food but we had to wait SO long for everything. The waiter was really friendly, but the front of house staff just left him to sort everything out on his own so naturally he couldn’t serve the whole restaurant on time! Small plates very small compared to other Japanese but mains are good value. More team work needed.

Kept getting the food wrong. Ordered the roll and instead got a large set plate. Told the waiter that I didn't order that. He took it away and left me waiting for 10 minutes before I got his attention and he said that his manager is trying to decide what to do. Then the manager brought the original plate and told me that we can have that at the price of the roll we ordered. Had to take away the balance and gave it away to a homeless as the food is not worth me using up my calories for the day.
The waiter was nice but there are only two waiters serving a restaurant with 75 seatings.
Will not go there again if even it was free.
