    Food was delicious, service was a bit slow but servers were friendly, perhaps just a bit understaffed. Overall, great experience and excellent food. I would eat there again.

    This place has a really nice back patio that is covered so that we were eating al fresco despite a sudden downpour. The food is very fresh and offers a nice sampling of Asian flavors. The bibimbap isn't 100 % authentic, but it is very delicious. They also offer a reasonable sake flight.

  • Successful Sweet 16 Dinner!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    The staff at Shokudo were so kind and accommodating! We were 4 adults and 6 teenagers, there to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday. They showed us to our table promptly and gave us lots of time and attention. They even served us the cupcakes we brought AND a "gift" dessert, complete with candles and song. All this and the food was great too!

    Shokudo is always a treat. The owner Yoko is so friendly and inviting; it is totally unlike dining anywhere else in Miami. The location and ambiance take you far away from the craziness that is the night scene in S Florida. The outdoor dining patio is perfect with great mood lighting. The food is spectacular; I LOVE the chicken pad thai, and the steak buns are so delicious!

    Really enjoyed dining outside perfectly protected from an unexpected downpour by the fab awning. Beau- our James Franco lookalike server- was excellent. He offered sake samples so that we could decide on a bottle and didn't seen to mind that he had to dance through the rain to get to our table.

    Shokudo was recommended by a good friend and I trust her feedback. I had friends in town for the long weekend and decided to give it a try. It’s not easy running around with a 10 month old, but we sat outside and no problem. Our server was friendly, and gave us great recommendations both in food and wine. I will definitely add Shokudo to my go to places.

    Dined on 7/28/2014
    Went here on a whim- looking for sushi near my Biscayne bay hotel and though I had left Miami many years ago I had no expectations for the Design district. To my surprise I ended up having one of the best, freshest sushi in a long time- not to mention that the place is very nicely decorated, intimate and you can actually have a conversation. Visit- you won't go wrong!

    The ambience is fine and the food is very good. There are some dishes that are excellent and one or two out of the 10 we ordered as a group that just were really bad so it is hit or miss. Don't rely on the servers for recs because that's what we did and those were the two really bad dishes. Go with what you really like to eat and don't be afraid to try things too. Overall good food, terrible parking options available, sketch neighborhood for restaurant, but good prices and had a good time in general.

    We have gone to Shokudo three times, all for special occasions. the staff is well informed, engaging and welcoming. we have sat outside each time, and we love the feeling out there. and now about the food.....it is amazing. the unique dishes are not just original to be different, but are created with a lot of thought and talent. we come with our young children who have tried some dishes for the first time with such enjoyment. they now love the yellowtail sashimi with jalapenos and they are obsessed with the ceviche in coconut milk. we will definitely go back.

    We had seen this restaurant driving by and were curious to try it out. We went with another couple and all four of us had a great meal. The variety of food and the presentation were both very satisfying. The service was excellent; our waiter explained the various options and made very good recommendations. Will certainly go back and try other dishes. We had dinner inside but the patio on the back seems very attractive.

    Everything was great, 16 people is hard to manage but our server did exceptional. The sushi was a treat, however the pad thai needed a little improvement. Our vegan members liked the noodles but thought it needed more veggies. Definitely going back, we were inside but the patio looked very cool and casual, have to try that next time. Also there is a very cool small bar in the back off the patio, very cool. Coconut Grover Foodys!

    This was my third time at Shokudo. Unfortunately they have reduced their menu :( Food is still great quality but for a Saturday night is was practically empty. Service was not good. The place was empty and the server kept on rushing us to get the order. Had to ask him several times that we would call him when ready. As soon as we ordered appetizers he wanted to take all our menus away and just leave one to pick our main course, party of 5 sharing one menu?! that was bizarre. Waiter was careless when picking things up from the table, dropping all the sauce on the table. I'm not sure if I will go again, it was a bit of a disappointment that after two other very good experiences this one was pretty bad.

    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.

  • Too many Asians to get it right
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/17/2013
    Thir restaurant tried to get too many Asian cuisines right to succeed and any one. The sushi was adequate, Korean barely pasable (Bimimbap was only fair). Banchan are usually included at Korean restaurants but here, each is $3.00 and the portions were very small. Cannot recommend this place. Try a real Korean restaurant instead. The service was very marginal at this restaurant. Don't expect things to be done in a timely fashion or without speaking up to someone rushing by.

    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.
