Shokudo-Hidden Gem in Buena Vista
We have been here several times since it opened about six months ago;the food and service has been consistently very good to excellent. I love the menu for it's variety of innovative Asian cuisine which includes, Japanese ( sushi, noodles. etc), Vietnamese ( Duck a'la orange), Korean (Bibimbap),Hawaiian( Poke). The desserts are also quite good and worth trying.
The patio, the interior and sake bar each have their own ambience with subtle lighting and comfortable seating.

Ambiance & great food
A fusion delight for your taste buds. Knowledgable friendly staff. In the Miami Design District so close to other haunts. Best thing to do is order many items a few at a time for all to enjoy. Explore....get loose on their really good Saki & Passion fruit YUM.

Shokudo successfully offers a variety of Asian foods: dumplings(including curry potato ... a must!), folded "bun" appetizers,
skewers of foods, sushi & crudo, main courses (incl. a variety of noodles). Everything at Shokudo has a made-to-order taste.
Good stock of ethnic wines and beers as well.

We've lived along the "upper
We've lived along the "upper east side" of Miami for years now and have seen lots of culinary ventures come and go. Shokudo is a great addition to the Design District area of Miami and extends the trend of an accessible neighborhood vibe mixed with culinary smarts.

The hostess and the servers were really nice, and as my wife entered the restaurant the chef greeted her at the podium and took her wet raincoat. At the time, she did not realize he was the chef, whose background includes Boulevard in San Francisco and Daniel in NYC.
We loved everything that we ordered which consisted of:
NY Spicy Tuna Roll
We each had a glass Estancia Chardonnay for only $3.25 per glass during Happy Hour which lasts until 7:30 pm.
Next time, we will keep trying different menu items because so many other dishes on the menu looked delicious.
Valet parking attendant was top notch.

Great food and service
This is the second time I go to Shokudo. The food is excellent. They have a varied and flavorful menu. Their sashimi is fresh, dumplings are to die for and the main course are outstanding. I have the ice cream for dessert, green tea and red bean are very unique and have a perfect flavor. They come wrapped in rice paper.
I would definitely go again, there are many things on their menu that I still want to try.
Service was friendly and attentive.

This is a terrific new Asian
This is a terrific new Asian restaurant--modern, but not cold, friendly but not pretentious. Most importantly, the food was terrific--fresh, well-prepared and with high quality ingredients. The server was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Valet parking is reasonable ($4), and I recommend it unless you find a space right in front, as the neighborhood is still somewhat marginal. We will be returning.

No one told us about the sushi
We didn't decide to come here for the sushi, but will definitely be back for more!! Unique options on the menu for foodies looking for something novel.

Shokudo, yes please!
Had a wonderful time at this restaurant. The staff was helpful but not pushy and they seemed to really care that you enjoyed yourself. The food was outstanding and the ambiance was very romantic. We ate outside and have a really lovely time. Can't wait to go back!
