Great news for sushi maniacs!! Famous for their great tasting sushi and also unique presentation with mini wooden stairs, Sushi Hiro from PIK has officially opened a new outlet in Kelapa Gading area. The modern Japanese sushi restaurant’s second outlet is situated in Kelapa Gading Boulevard Raya street located next to Chandra Karya Kelapa Gading.
Out of many new establishments in Pantai Indah Kapuk area, Sushi Hiro is one of a few places that is doing sooooo well constantly since the opening up until now, well we are not surprised though since the sushi here tastes amazing. The restaurant is always packed with customers with long queue, so the opening of second outlet in Kelapa Gading area is certainly a great move.
As I was told, all of the menu at Sushi Hiro PIK and Kelapa Gading are the same. Compared to our visit during the soft opening phase, Sushi Hiro now has a very wide range of menu, we can see lots of new and interesting menu addition to the restaurant. As comparison, you can check our previous review of Sushi Hiro PIK.
The decoration of Sushi Hiro Kelapa Gading is simply as nice as PIK outlet, with wooden furniture and pretty paper craft at the ceiling. Please note that the Japanese restaurant only opens during lunch and dinner time! So make sure you check the opening hours before going.
For the sushi, you can find wide variety of sushi like Maki, Chirashi, Gunkan, Temaki, Sushi Roll, Sashimi, Nigiri, besides that, there are other dishes that are also nice to try such as donburi, tempura, udon, ramen, soba, agemono, skewer, etc. If you fancy Omakase, you can get it here for IDR 1,500k.
Hiro Salmon Sushi IDR 90k
A sushi set menu that salmon lover cannot miss for sure, it consists of Salmon, Aburi Salmon, Aburi Salmon Cheese, and Aburi Salmon Mentai. The salmon was fresh and delicious, love the fact that the salmon cut is generous and thick, and the composition between salmon and sushi rice is just right.
Hiro Aburi Sushi IDR 100k
Complete set of aburi sushi with 6 different ingredients, Aburi Beef, Aburi Salmon, Aburi Salmon Belly, Aburi Hotate, Aburi Ika, and Aburi Tamago. This set menu is perfect for people who prefer to enjoy sushi with cooked ingredient rather than raw ingredient. The torch-grill or aburi process cooks the ingredients and gives it a nice grilled aroma.
Hiro Ultimate Sashimi IDR 300k
It’s all about the fresh ingredients, nice quality of sashimi set consists of Otoro, Uni, Kinmedai, Tai, Kanpachi, Aka Ebi, and Tamago. Love the freshness and sweetness from all ingredients, dayum!

Beef Dynamite IDR 105k (1pcs) // Gunkan Ikura Otoro Ebi

Two words, sweet and fresh, the uni was sooo smooth, rich and buttery, while otoro was incredibly fresh with nice firm texture.
Aka Ebi Spicy IDR 88k (1pcs)
Fresh prawn topped with tobiko, meat floss, spicy minced salmon, and creamy sauce. The taste was very interesting and different, in a good way, spicy and creamy altogether.
Aburi Beef Special IDR 70k (2pcs)
A wonderful harmony between aburi beef, egg yolk and spring onion with melt-in-the-mouth sensation.
Aburi Kagoshima Foie Gras Ikura IDR 95k (1pcs)
A MUST ORDER! Sushi rice topped with huge thinly sliced beef aburi, grilled foie gras, spring onion, and ikura. Both beef and foie gras were sooo soft and tender with melt-in-the-mouth texture, it was seasoned nicely with savory sauce with subtle hint of sweet taste, we didn’t need to add soy sauce anymore. My oh my, soooo good, the taste of this sushi still lingers on my lips!
Aburi Engawa Onsen Roll IDR 55k (1pcs)
One of a kind unique sushi roll that you simply cannot miss having when visiting Sushi Hiro, Engawa or Halibut fish, sushi rice, and ikura topped with onsen egg.
Kagoshima Roll IDR 150k (8pcs)
One of the signature roll sushi at Sushi Hiro consists of kyuri, tamago, crabstick, aburi beef, garlic flake and glazed with sweet savory sauce. It was a good one, fresh, aromatic and full of flavor! Love the burnt aroma from the aburi beef.
Hiro Chirashi IDR 270k
Mr. Jajan’s bowl of happiness. The chirasi don consists of generous toppings, Otoro, Uni, Salmon, Kanpachi, Aka Ebi, Kinmedai, ikura, Maguro and Tamago, all of the ingredients were fresh and shiny, rice was also fluffy and nicely seasoned. Super festive, super satisfying!
Nori Seaweed, Beef, Uni, Shiso and Spring Onion
Another new creation by the chef off from the menu, crunchy nori seaweed topped with tender grilled beef, buttery uni, shiso and spring onion. The combination was very unique and eccentric but in a fun way.
Gyu Garlic Fried Rice IDR 120k
Fried rice topped with nicely tender grilled beef, creamy onsen egg and garlic flakes. The rice was savory and garlicky, and the addition of egg and beef just brought the rice into another level, tasty! To make it more festive, you also can order some add on like, Onsen Egg IDR 15k, Tobiko IDR 20k, Foie Gras IDR 60k and Uni IDR 90k
Beef Charcoal with Raw Egg IDR 150k
Grilled beef over charcoal served with raw egg yolk. Love the DIY grill concept with mini charcoal grill so we can adjust the meat level of doneness based on our preference. The beef was tender with peppery taste and the best way to enjoy it is to dip the freshly grilled beef into creamy egg yolk.
New Sushi Tower
Look at the new unique looking design of sushi tower! Sooo basically, other than the sushi items on the menu book, if you have certain combination that you want, you can order special request to the chef for example shrimp nigiri sushi with uni, etc.
Hokkaido Milk Pudding IDR 25k
For sweet ending, AnakJajan had Hokaido Milk Pudding, the pudding was delightful with soft jiggling smooth texture with rich Hokkaido milk taste and the sauce was just spot on with nice caramel after taste.
Overall, once again, AnakJajan had a sushigazm in Sushi Hiro, great variety, nice creations, amazing quality and taste as well. For us personally Sushi Hiro is one of great places for sushi in town, with the great menu selection, you can adjust your order based on your preference of taste and budget as well. Let’s Jajan!
