We went for my wife’s birthday. We were there during happy hour. We sat at 5:30 ordered drinks apps and sushi. We got drinks and appetizers quickly, but the 4 sushi rolls took nearly an hour to arrive. We had planned to doing another order but the time it took to get them forced us to head out early due to a showtime at Dr Phillips center. The server kept the drinks full and did bring a birthday dessert which was great. I just wish it didn’t take as long as it did.
Shari is our go to sushi spot. Great food, sushi happy hour, service and location.
Used to be great, now just tired & dated, no focus, needs re-vamp
Apps where underwhelming for the price paid.
Sangria special was good.
Rolls were good but also over priced.
Service was good.
Shari used to be a destination sushi spot. It feels like it’s lost it’s edge. They no longer have Asian sushi chefs... some of the best premium rolls are gone and the vibe is down. It’s still good but feels tired ... overdue for investment in decor and concept. I’ve lived within walking distance for about 12 years.. not terrible.. just all of the buzz is gone.
Fabulous sushi in Thornton Park neighborhood of Orlando. Sashimi was excellent!
Awesome food and drinks!
When we showed up, despite having an open table reservation, they did not have a table for us so we had to sit at a tiny table in the bar/lounge area. Service was slow and it took an unusually long time to get any food out. Was about 25 minutes before we got our first app. The food was okay but nothing special. The buffalo lobster app was one of the better things we had.
Ambiance is great. Service was very slow. Food was not impressive. Manager was inexperienced.
Love happy hour sushi. Amazing quality!!
Everything was perfect
Nick is as a really great sever and his suggestions were spot on. The spit edamame and gyoza to start we’re superb. Happy Hour is my favorite time to go there, such a great deal but I felt that there options have become a bit limited over time. I do not eat salmon and almost every item had salmon in it. They also stopped serving the banana egg rolls which were amazing, BUT nick was nice enough to get me the coconut ice cream that accompanied the egg rolls. I would of course go again and will suggest it to my friends.
Lovely time as always, one of my all time favorite sushi restaurants!
Good quality sushi but nothing really special. Excellent service, though it wasn't crowded when we were there.
Food was amazing! I set up a reservation long time ago for a birthday, I spoke to the employees several times days prior to the reservation and they never gave us our birthday dessert. The waitress was not the best at attending to us, we waited for a good while before getting refills.
Food and service were both wonderful! Shari is always excellent!
Excellent service that my wife and I really liked.
It is a nice place and the food is good. Our server Emerson was very nice and informative. We celebrated my cousins bday and she thought the food was good.
Quite a few new items were added to the menu. Enjoyed the beet salad, new poke B, and salmon dish with mushrooms.
Excellent, as always, we have been coming to Shari for many years and the meal was exactly what we have come to expect.
Also :) we got engaged ;)
Food was fantastic and loved the atmosphere.
This used to be our favorite sushi spot, but something has clearly changed. The bar was always terrible, but the sushi always made up for that. Now, it’s just terrible. I am not sure if there was a change in ownership or chef, but it simply terrible. One of favorite appetizers - the pork belly - is a huge miss now. The slices are pathetic - we had to return it since they were so thin. Additionally, the Moriwase that we used to love now comes served on a wood board with the ice block placed on it which casues the nigiri to get wet. The rice falls apart and the special, imported soy even tasted watered down. We even tried the new Snow White tuna appetizer and it was tasteless - guacamole and sushi doesn’t work. It was a sad evening and we will not be returning.
Great sushi and fantastic service every time!
Not like the trendy sushi places which come and go. Not over-sauced or gloppy. Light, tasty. Good variety.
Usually Shari is amazing but this visit was just ok. The himachi was warm, fishy, and smothered in a sweet sauce. We were able to see behind the sushi bar and noticed all of the avocados the sushi chefs were using were brown. When eating sushi or anything in a raw state you want the freshest ingredients. The rolls were good (especially the drama queen and sea dragon) and so were the drinks. We will return someday if in the area but probably won't make a special trip since we live so far way.
Food and service are excellent, trendy decor, hip music is played a little too loudly.
Not worth the money. I ordered chicken and it was super, super dry and not good. My boyfriend ordered 3 different rolls and only had good things to say about one of them. Saki was yummy. Our Server was really great!
Always a delight to go to. Excellent food and service.
Super cute place. Great for date night. Loved the food and the ambience.
Good food as always...but it does have its ups and downs.
An incredible value for the price. The food was delicious and the dining room was gorgeous. Perfect for a quiet get-together or date. My jaw dropped a little when I got the bill - couldn't believe we got such a nice place for so cheap. My only complaint is that the server visited our table a little too often, felt almost like we were being passively encouraged to leave, even when the dining room was only half full.
Always an amazing experience
Service was perfect. My nigiri was delicious. A little diving the Korean beef tacos but overall very good. I would go back for the cocktails and nigiri.
I used to come to this restaurant about 12 to 13 years ago and it was amazing. I was so horribly disappointed when my girlfriend and I dine there the other night that I actually wanted to get up and leave
There were plenty of servers but it took us forever to get any service. Once we placed our order it took an hour and a 20 minutes to get some of the worst Sushi I've ever had in my life. The roles were tiny and they were very expensive for what you got. They were Bland lacking flavor and very expensive for the quality. My friend and I were starving and did not send it back because we had waited so long. We didn't even get an apology or any nice gestures to make up for the lack of service. I will never return again and I will be sure to let others know why. Terrible service food and atmosphere.
Excellent the service was great so many wonderful flavors can't wait to go back again
We love the sushi happy-hour!!! Always fresh, and with beautiful presentation!💖💖💖💖💖
Went before a show at Dr. Phillips and stumbled upon their happy hour. $5 for a Tito’s vodka gimlet made me very happy! Lots of small plates on both the regular and happy hour menu. My friend and I share everything: edamame sautéed with garlic - yum!, pork Gyoza - cooked just right, pork belly bon mih, Koran BBQ taco. Everything was delicious. Sever was friendly and very attentive withou being intrusive. Have already recommended the place to others, and would definitely return.
I'm not a sushi eater, but my wife and our friends really love sushi and they said it was really good. Actually, one of our friends is from China, so assume that she knows fish very well. She said it was the first good sushi she has tasted in Orlando.
The kids had the Chicken Katsu and they really liked it. They didn't seem overly impressed with the exotic ice cream. We ordered all 4 flavors; red beet, cinnamon, popcorn - I forget the last one. It seems that cinnamon was the favorite and they did not finish the others.
We shared about 3 appetizers; the Korean beef taco, pork bahn, and lobster dumplings which were good.
Everyone ordered each of the Chef's combos. My wife's Sashimi combo came with 21 pieces; including octopus, abalone, tuna, salmon, and others. She could not eat it all. The combos were served on ice bowls and presentation was nice. I thought an excellent deal at $35 per combo.
As I don't eat seafood, I ordered the filet mignon. It was very good for steak as a Japanese restaurant. It was cooked medium rare, as I ordered. Definitely not Prime, but pretty decent cut.
The main reason why we went here was that we needed a table for 8 at 7:15 when it was already 6:50 and were able to reserve it on OpenTable. We will be back.
I was underwhelmed by the food. The experience itself was great.
