  • "Had a very good dinner there April 18th, the sushi and other food items at Shari are always great, and they have a very fun and energetic downtown atmosphere that we really enjoyed."

  • "The only thing better than Happy Hour is Sushi Happy Hour. They have great quality sushi for amazing prices. Its one of my favorite places."

  • "Garlic edamame excellent! Sushi the best in Orlando! Female server not at all in tune with the importance of customer service. Had to practically beg for a little dessert which was then served on a dirty table. Not like the old days at Shari when service was exceptional."

  • "The food is delicious and the happy hour menu is amazing!!! Love to create special dinners out with the bf without breaking the bank (rare for sushi)."

  • "Shari is one of the finest restaurants in town! The staff is super friendly and the food is outstanding! The drinks are made with the freshest ingredients and the sushi is superb. You don't want to miss this spot!"

  • "They have the some of the most imaginative sushi I've seen. All of the items we tried were very very good. The only downside is, you pay for it. They have one roll that costs $19.00. It's a really good roll, but not worth that much. So, if you want to go to (probably) one of the best sushi restaurants in Orlando, it would be there, just bring a full wallet. Btw, call ahead. They are usually packed (which speaks for itself)."

  • "For the last four years I come to Orlando for a conference in March. I found this place last year by searching for best sushi places in Orlando. Both trips were fantastic. The staff is very knowledgable and makes great wine and drink recommendations. We had several appetizers including a lobster tempora and Kobe beef. Outstanding. The Wolfpack and Love Rolls are incredible. We ended up ordering another Wolfpack because it was so good. It just melts in your mouth. Since it happened to be St. Patricks day we had the Irish car bomb bread pudding with Amaretto ice cream. Outstanding. I plan to be back same time next year. Thanks for another great experience."

  • "The sushi was really good. The Triple Tail roll had good-sized pieces of fish in it. My pet peeve is getting sushi which is mainly rice and avocado - the sushi chefs definitely know what they are doing here. The fish was very fresh. My husband and I went during happy hour and the prices were great. The regularly priced menu is too expensive for me to spend on a regular basis. While the sushi was very good, I wouldn't spend $11 on a spicy tuna roll. This is Orlando - not New York City. I would go back to Shari - but only during happy hour."

  • "The service was excellent and the good, as always, was exquisite. I wish Shari would open for lunch again some day - so many of us crave sushi for lunch and it's a good business lunch experience, the other lunch options pale in quality comparison."

  • "My boyfriend and I find this spot to be chic for date night. They had great sushi and drink selections. As out of towners we would definitely visit again"

  • "The sushi at Shari is always very good but, as most sushi can be, it is a little pricey on their regular menu. Their happy hour menu, however, is a great deal. They offer this menu from 5-7pm and it has a variety of delicious rolls for $4.25 each. Definitely make a reservation though, as they tend to fill up."

  • "Great ambiance and very good sushi. Was impressed with not having a huge wait time - especially as our reservation was for New Year's Eve. The staff was great, and the food was fresh and tasty! One of the best lychee martinis I've had... Can't wait to dine here again!"

  • "Our server made our dining experience extra special. He was very knowledgeable in the preparation and flavors plus able to determine the comfort level of his patrons. He most definitely did hit home runs with our group and we have eaten around the world. This restaurant knows how to make great sushi and present it well. On my next visit to Orlando, I will include this restaurant on my itinerary. What a great find!! Thank you for the wonder experience, it was greatly appreciated by all!"

  • "I haven't had a bad experience here, and I keep going back. Their sushi is superb and you really can't beat $4.25 happy hour. Who cares if they have raised the price a little? Its still wayy cheaper than their regular menu and its very good quality."

  • "Shari has the best sushi in Orlando and the service is always fantastic as well. Happy hour is super cheap and delicious - get a saketini!"

  • "I was in Orlando with a friend for New Years for a bowl game, and made a reservation at Shari Sushi based upon reviews from Open Table. It did not disappoint. Probably one of the best sushi restaurants I've ever been to. The food was fantastic. Our waitress was a little spacey, but the food and atmosphere was so great, we didn't care. I highly recommend this great restaurant!"

  • "We had a few drinks in the bar area and then had dinner upstairs with someone we were shocked to find out had just started that night. Jeremy was great and I wouldn't have known he was new if he didn't tell us. In fact he was the most attentive person we've had in quite some time. We look forward to going back and hopefully see him again. Always great food there but this service was above and beyond."

  • "This was my second year celebrating my birthday at Shari with a group of 10 adults. Shari has always impressed when it comes to service and quality of food! Our server made excellent suggestions for our guests that had dietary concerns, we're pregnant, or vegan. In addition, all the staff, including the on site manager, were very respectful; customer service at its best. As always, the food was a beautiful display of yummyness."

  • "2 girlfriends and I stopped at Shari before leaving Downtown Orlando after work on a Wednesday night. We were headed to a show in Kissimmee and wanted to eat before we hit the crowds that are typical on that end of town. We had reservations, and thank goodness because if not - we might not have gotten in, the place filled very quickly! We ordered from the Happy Hour menu and decided to share our food. The wait was relatively short for 9 really well-made rolls. The service was prompt and attentive and the sushi was great! I had been there before and knew to order 2 volcano rolls - they are my favorite. We dined outside so that we could talk and it was a beautiful night. I recommend Shari to anyone who loves sushi and a good time."
