The one with the LOUD greeter!!

A Coral Gables Japanese staple restaurant, where the owner prepping sushi at the bar will greet you with a loud, "Welcome" in strong Japanese accent. The place is usually packed for lunch where quick bento boxes come and go at a fast pace. A variety of plates are displayed daily on a chalk board... read more

Across the street from the Westin entrance. Consistently high quality Sushi, and wide ranging Japanese sea-food menu.

My husband and I often come here for lunch when we're in the mood for sushi and are in downtown Coral Gables. There is usually a man greeting you "Hello, how are you?" when you come in. It's usually easy to find a seat, although tables are close together and it can get a little noisy with the tile floors.... More

Have been in this place since 2000. It has always an authentic ambience, fresh fish for sashimi or niguri, an excellent quality of blue toro when available and an amazing 895 lunch bento box with options for sahimi, sushi, and teriyaki. this is not the creative fusion sushi place but a really good experience for lunch or dinner. My favorite... More

Read the blackboard for the daily specials. Today we had the wahoo tataki and salad with sashimi for the board. Excellent. Service is exceptional with a "homey" feeling. Definitely one of the better sushi restaurants in Miami.

Not being an expert on Japanese food other than Sushi, if what Izakaya serves is typical Japanese, then I will have to book a trip to Japan. Delicious food, friendly service and entrees well beyond your 9 to 5 sushi restaurant.

This is not a fusion restaurant, it's a true Japanese restaurant with fair prices, great service and amazing food. They got lunch specials everyday. Worth a try.

This is the best Japanese Restaurant in Miami. Great little neighborhood joint. Check the blackboards for the specials. Best cooked fish in Miami also!
