  • "All -but 1 thing- was awesome. My friend spilt her drinking moving their big menu for our edamame and they charged her for a new one. Not very good service. I expected better hospitality. Food was amazing!"

  • "My girlfriend and I have been doing the "long distance" thing for over a year now. Whenever I come visit we always try something new. But Shari is the one place we dine every time I'm in town. It is simply the best sushi around. We have our go-to rolls we get every time. But even when we try something new we are not disappointed. If I had to find one thing to complain about, it would be the use of cilantro on so many of the rolls. That said, they will gladly make them sans cilantro upon request. So all in all, there are no gripes here. I finally moved to Orlando last weekend and of course celebrated with Shari sushi. Looking forward to spending many more nights there."

  • "I would definitely recommend a reservation as it can get quite busy, or reservation was at 9:15 and we were seated immediately. We sat upstairs and could see everything be prepared it was great. Our server, Will, stayed on top of everything and the food was amazing! Always worth every penny, this was our best visit to Shari ever!"

  • "Good service. Waitress was good and did recommend dishes that turned out to be delish.. Hostess staff was a little lost in their job and not sure why the place was empty. Bartender acted like he didn't want to be there. "

  • "Took a good friend of mine for their happy hour as I'd heard good things - we were not disappointed! From 4pm-7pm they have an extensive list of fresh, hand-rolled (you can actually see the sushi chefs making them) rolls, sashimi and nigri, each for just under $5! There is a also a selection of drinks for under $5 too. And if you want more choice, their regular menu is even more extensive. Staff was attentive and I will definitely be coming back."

  • "I Celebrated my 3rd anniversary with my wife at Shari on May 21. Our experience couldn't have gone better! From the moment we walked through the door we we're treated like royalty. Our service was phenomenal and the food was even better! I'm an Orlando native and have been exploring the local food scene for many years and I can say with full confidence that Shari is the best sushi restaurant I have found. We had several courses from the entire menu and everything was fantastic. Start with the buffalo lobster, and make sure you get some fatty tuna it's epic! Chocolate lava cake for dessert was the best I've ever had! Top notch spot!"

  • "I have to say that this was an excellent find for a Friday night with high quality food and service including comfortable seating and a perfect sight of them preparing the sushi. The waiter was very knowledgeable of varies alcohols and was very pleasant, although I thought the hostess was quite rude when we arrived. Seemed like was in mid conversation and was irritated that I interrupted her so she could do her job. But we didn't let that effect us because the place was still a gem."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "No place compares to Shari in terms of food quality and service, it is hands down the best in town. But the music is at times too loud and its genre doesn't fit the ambience, except maybe at the bar. Too electronic and loud, anything else would fit better except the current playlist or country. Hip hop, 80's, disco, even alternative or Top 20, anything but electronic or hip hop. "

  • "Always a great happy hour! Can't beat rolls for only 4.25$ and drinks too!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I have been to Shari many times, and have always had great service. Saturday was different, the service was very lack luster, I was never offered a second drink, so I drunk my water which by the way took forever to be refilled. Not only that, we had to get our servers attention to place our food order. I love the food and the atmosphere, so I'm hoping this wont happen again when I go back."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We have been coming to Shari since it's opening. As a local business person, I have always felt secure in bringing clients here. But, more than that, I come her with my family. Never disappointed. We had Amy again. She's not just a great server , but was very good in recommending items I would not usually choose. I was very happy with everything. Worthy of yet, another return!"

  • "We travel often and eat shushi all over. 90% of the time we catch ourselves saying "this place is good, but it has NOTHING on Shari!" We've had every roll on the menu, you can't go wrong! Great Martinis too👍"

  • "I took my wife to Shari Sushi for her birthday and it was a wonderful dining experience. The sushi was very fresh and among the best quality I have had at any local sushi restaurant. Along with the quality of the food the service was outstanding. Thank you Shari Sushi for making our dining experience so enjoyable."

  • "It was my first time dining here and I was pleasantly surprised. I requested a booth through my OpenTable reservation, and they made sure I was comfortable before settling on my seating arrangements. The food is excellent here as well. Our server was extremely attentive to our needs and always made sure we were satisfied before departing. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience. "

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed Shari. I had been before in the past and thought it was a little overrated and pretentious, but this visit was a totally different experience. Our server was awesome, very friendly and helpful with the menu. The sushi was very good. The menu has some really good classics and some very nice inventive combinations. The cocktails were also delicious."

  • "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."
