Purple International Bistro & Sushi
I reserved a table online but when I got there the doors were locked during normal operating hours. This left me with no time to get lunch during my busy day. I was outraged especially since I’ve been here before and loved their sushi.
The food was great, we will definitely be coming back.
Great food and location. The music was great!
The menu had a good variety and the food arrived right on time.
Always a joy to dine here. Sushi is excellent and a calm atmosphere to enjoy good conversation with friends or family. Service is always good. This is a true gem in Greenville.
Great food and good portions.
a hidden gem nestled near the Greenville Drive stadium
The best Sushi in Greenville, in my opinion. Always top notch and fresh!
My only critique would be the cramped area where those waiting for their table stand.
But literally, that's it. The quality of service and food was incredible.
Very pleasant dining experience and the food was terrific!
Chef is awesome with off menu items available if you know what to ask for. Small and comfortable with low noise.
Really enjoyed the food. Service was pretty stressed out and appeared under-staffed, but they managed a good job under the circumstances.
We wanted to try both an entree and sushi. There was some confusion between us and the server regarding the “specials” on the board outside. We finally ordered one of those and was charged $3 more than on the board, no free saki as the board indicated and the sushi was, well, less than expected at $11/roll (prices not on menu, had to look up on line). Never asked if we wanted an additional cocktail. We left after dinner and went elsewhere. Disappointed as this place was recommended to us.
First time visit. Sushi / Sashimi was very good. Probably the best I have had in Greenville.
The menu had a lot of variety which was what we were looking for. The food was excellent and our server was very helpful. I would certainly return.
Very nice evening at the Purple International Bistro. I had the tuna and it was excellent. I also had the Chrashi and it was excellent. Great service, great people. I would recommend.
First time eating here. Loved the food and our waitress was great. We’ll definitely be back!
Family celebrating Christmas together! Our family has enjoyed Sushi for over 40 years, mainly on the west coast but in Japan also. We agree that Purple has the best Sushi!!
Service was timely and server very pleasant. Nice quiet atmosphere and food very fresh.
Mediocre at best, just expected better quality fresher food. Slow service.
Someone had recommended Purple as a great place to get sushi. So we tried it out and we were not disappointed. Our server was knowledgeable and very pleasant. She took time to converse with us. Overall, experience was memorable.
Very nice and the food was excellent.
After an hour of waiting for anything to be brought to our table, I had to go approach staff to make sure they knew we wanted our appetizers to be brought before our sushi. My friend was brought cold miso soup and our appetizers took another 10 mins. The waitress then told us that they had been making all the to go orders before ours and she had to asks them to make our food! When our food finally arrived the waitress passed a plate across the table, which spilled all over my friend’s lap with the sushi rolls demolished and crab everywhere. The sushi chef came to see and actually laughed at my friend. My friend wasn’t able to eat a single piece, wasn’t brought a replacement and had to pay for the dropped food. Customer service clearly not a priority here. There are way better places for sushi in Greenville.
Great spot for those who like sushi... and those who do not!
Amazing food and staff!
Sat at the sushi bar and let the chef prepare for me his choice. Very nice and fresh sashimi and rolls. Offered a complimentary sake.
Purple is one of our very favorite sushi restaurants. We try new items every time we go and have never been disappointed. Save room for dessert - yummy!!!
Glad we had reservations! It filled up fast and there was a private party upstairs which might explain the hang up in service especially towards the end of our meal.
Great sushi nice atmosphere will definitely go back.
Sushi was so good. We will definitely come back.
We haven't been to Purple in a while so we went Saturday and had a great time we were seated upstairs and it is impressive how many times the server goes up and down the stairs.
I had read and spoken to people that said this was the best sushi in town.
It was solid, fish was fresh. It was fine. I just was expecting for 'great'. It was ok, but with an underwhelming dining room, I will keep trying until we find our 'favorite' sushi restaurant.
Awesome night and great selections
We have been going there on a regular basis since we discovered it. Always a great experience, the food is delicious.
The overall atmosphere of this restaurant is a real gem. The quaintness makes for a very enjoyable meal. It’s nice to be able to have a conversation and not have to yell across the table.
Nice restaurant. Great location. Friendly and accommodating staff.
The food was excellent -!our server was very efficient & fun. We are going again with friends Tuesday evening for Halloween dining.
Food is amazing, service needs work. Mainly attention to tables when guests are first seated. We got water but waiter never reappeared. After 15 min we told him we wanted to order appetizers and wine. Service fine after that. They seated 4 of us at a smallish booth which was slightly uncomfortable and table wasn't big enough for all our plates but we managed. We've been here several times and will continue to enjoy Purple.
Food was really good. So glad they stayed open despite the weather. Very cozy.
