One of the best sushi restaurants in the country and the best in the Atlanta area!
I'm a bit of a sushi fanatic and I work for a travel agency and have been all over the country. I make it a point to sample as many of the sushi restaraunts as I can wherever I am. And one of the absolute gems is Shiro / Great Wall.
I have to be honest when I heard they offered both Chinese and Japanese cuisine I was cautious at first. Possibly the only other time that has been done well in the Atlanta area was many years ago when the Golden Buddah on Roswell Rd. first opened and was under the original management. And under head sushi chef Sato. But that location has not been the same for many years now.
But despite my caution, I found Shiro / Great Wall to be a fantastic choice for both sushi, and Chinese cuisine.
The fish is always extremely fresh, the atmosphere is actually quite nice.The restaurant has very high ceilings and they have an interesting waterwall behind the sushi chefs. When you walk in its hard to believe this restaurant is hidden there in this strip mall.
The sushi is fantastic, the sushi chefs are impeccable particularly the gentleman with the pony tail. I genuinely wish I could remember his name. They have the most fantastic spicy tuna roll imaginable and while I loved the catapillar roll and red dragon roll, you really cannot go wrong with any of the rolls or nigiri in this wonderful restaurant.
Finally, while I am not a huge fan of Chinese food the General Tso's Chicken and the Orange Chicken here are first rate as are their egg rolls.
I know if you try Shiro / Great Wall you will become a fan too.
