Great pick for a group of 8 from New York City and London. Met our high standards. Best restaurant we've been to in the area, and had great options for our different diets (including several vegetarians).

We had dinner there on Saturday night. We made reservations and requested the quietest spot they had since both husbands are hard of hearing. The restaurant was loud and we couldn’t hear each other. The service was extremely slow and when our dinners were served over 40 Minutes later, my dinner was not even lukewarm, I had to send it back and it took another 10 minutes. The shrimp teriyaki dish wasn’t not very tasty. It’s a shame since we took our good friends out to dinner to celebrate a special occasion. It was truly a disappointment!!!

The food is awesome at both JPan locations. It's ambiance is only okay since seating is kind of tight and you can't really have a quiet conversation. I will go back again and again especially for lunch.

Never disappointed with the service, the presentation or the meal. We ordered 9 different rolls and each one was exceptional. They arrived on the boat and we devoured them all in minutes. Our waitress went the extra mile and enjoyed our lively spirits or pretended to...haha. For your sushi fix JPan at Paradise Plaza in Sarasota is a must!!

I am a frequent diner at JPAN, for several reasons. The food preparation and quality is always high, the service is strong and the value is exceptional.

I recommend the tempura as it is crispy and flavorful, the sashimi is also fresh with nice portion sizes

Some of the best sushi we've had. Great atmosphere and Aki was an exceptional hostess. The tiger roll was our favorite. The place had a nice modern decor, paired with soft EDM music, it was well blended for the perfect dining experience.

If you love fresh Sushi, if you live in Sarasota, JPAN is the place for you. Having moved to Sarasota almost three years ago, it took us a while to find JPAN. Since we found it, we won't go anywhere else.

We limit our choices to sushi, sashimi and their creative (plus traditional) rolls. It can be a bit pricey doing it this way, but, what the heck. When you MUST have sushi, you just do it.

We have never been disappointed with the quality or the service. It is well worth a try.

We had music soup and green salad with a very nice ginger dressing. We also had an asparagus roll, cucumber roll. These were very fresh. We also had sashimi and more rolls. Would definitely go back.

Whenever I am looking for Japanese food I go to JPan. Its as close to Japan as you will get in SRQ. Had some German friends with me - both of us have spent a lot of time in Japan and Jpan gets a thumbs up.

I like this restaurant. The food is good and the service fine. What I didn't appreciate is being charged $2.75 for a club soda, not bottled water, club soda from a gun....and $3.50 for a small bowl of Sushi rice. When I am spending $200+ on a meal why nickel and dime me?

This is a hidden gem in the back of a shopping center. The service was great as well as the drink selections.
There are so many sushi dishes to choose from, it's hard to pick one. The tempura was also delicious for those who are not sushi lovers, as well as the spring rolls. Can't wait
to come back

Very good hot dishes, did not try sushi. Great service, decent pricing, varied menu. Had salmon teriyaki; ample portions, excellent, timely. The décor, tables, and seating need upgrading. Seemed like good crowd was being served well. I like the place, just needs to upgrade the seating.

I thought that the food was a bit off on our last visit to JPAN. I ordered the tuna poke, rather than having a sweetness to it, it was incredibly spicy.
The lobster buns were tasteless and just fell apart when we went to eat them.
We were disappointed with this visit.
