Went for our anniversary. Sat upstairs it was nice and quiet and we overlooked the sushi bar so we could see them make our food. We arrived for happy and the menu looked amazing. We only ordered 1 roll (ceviche roll) on the happy hour bc we wanted to try new stuff and it was actually my favorite roll of the evening. We also ordered the fried buffalo lobster app, the bff roll, the pink panther roll, and a ume dish. Plenty to eat. We also ordered the sweet potato beneights with cinnamon ice cream and it was also delish!

I booked a reservation for 9:30 pm after a very long day of traveling for work. I had to park much further that I preferred since it was dark and had some very sketchy people around and I am a women. I get there at 9:30 and the door was LOCKED!!!!! I knocked on the door and saw a few people at the bar talking to the bartender but not one person ( which I didn't not expected the customers) came and opened the door. Why take a reservation and then LOCK the door???? Very unprofessional and rude!

Definitely the best sushi in Orlando. Fish is always very fresh. Every time I'm in town for business I have to get a fix. Chef always has some new special I have to try. Lots of interesting things on the menu. I love their presentation of Hamachi kama. Pork belly is outstanding! Good sake choices and bar menu.

I just moved closer to downtown, and was looking for a new sushi restaurant closer to my home. I was very happy to discover Shari. Shari is now my new local sushi restaurant. First, there wasn't any wait. The quality of the fish was outstanding. The service was very friendly and relatively quick. The layout of the restaurant is a little cramped and not ideal, but everything can't be perfect always.

The bathroom, although not in the actual rest. , but the hallway, was not in the least bit clean. It was like a truck stop bathroom, super disgusting. I think they should make sure someone is paid to keep it nice during business hours.

I took my wife to Shari for our anniversary over the July 4th holiday weekend. Assuming it would be busy and made a reservation. I was wrong. Which made the experience fantastic. We had the only table on the balcony and there were only 7 other full tables. Our waitress Katy was very attentive and perfectly chatty. We mentioned to her that we hadn't been to Shari in 8+ years and said it was our anniversary. After we finished the manager (I believe his name was Mike) stopped by and thanked us for coming, chatted for a minute, and gave us two glasses of champagne on the house. Over all the food has always been great and the service and attention to detail are fantastic.

This was my second time at Shari, and the food is absolutely amazing! I'm a super fan of the pork belly, BFF sushi roll and their seasonal bread pudding for dessert! Their cocktails add a nice touch to your meal as well! I'll definitely frequent Shari! It's my new sushi spot...can't wait to see the additional items they're soon to add to the menu!

We live almost an hour away from Shari Sushi but always pick it as our 'special night out' place to go. The sushi is the absolute best I have ever had (hands down) and the ambiance and service make it that much better. Highly recommend any of the sashimi dishes (Yellowtail Himachi is my personal favorite). If we lived closer, Shari would be in our weekly rotation of places to eat at!

Great food and environment, but my particular waiter was way too rushed, he was walking away while taking and spoke so fast. It seemed liked he was running away from us the whole time. Very unsatisfied and surprised by the horrible service,but still one of my favorite sushi places. Expensive though.

Menu was very interesting and not just a repeat of traditional sushi fare. Waitress was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the food items. Service was great. Has outdoor seating as well. Beer is limited to Japanese brands but wine list is good.

Food was excellent. Each dish had some flare and uniqueness. Will return and would definitely recommend.
