Took my wife to Shari for her birthday and loved this restaurant. It's quite modern with a minimalistic appeal. Their drinks are fabulous. Our waitress pointed out that are all made in-house with no premade mixes and they did not disappoint. The Basil Flower and Lemongrass and Dragonberry Mojitos were excellent. The Hitachino beer line was a great departure from... More

Nice cosy restaurant, very modern. Nice for a romantic dinner. Pork belly was tasty. I don't remember the rolls I had but they were excellent. I would definitely eat here again....

I have not been to this location besides at happy hour. So with that being said I have not really tried anything beside what is on the happy hour mean besides the spicy and/or garlic edamame which is yummy! But I think the happy hour menu is perfect and yummy. The saki-tini's are always good. I also try to make... More

Sushi was a little chewy but was ok and we arrived during happy hour, which was the only way we could dine because I was not told about reservation even after I had called the day before. The atmosphere by the bar and on the first floor was cramped for space but overall average rating.

Came here with some colleagues on a Friday night. There was a good crowd and the atmosphere is lively and hip. Food is good, drinks are tasty, and service is efficient. Nothing extraordinary, but a great find in central Orlando.

Nestled in chic Thornton Park, Shari adds a level of sophistication and a tingle of excitement to the area with its dynamic style of Modern Japanese Cuisine. Full bar and stylish atmosphere. Innovative drinks and unique menu selections.

Love the atmosphere, the sushi is great! Haven't had other dishes. The HAPPY hour pricing is around $6 per roll and same price for alcoholic beverages. Have never been outside happy hour, seems outrages pricing. Happy hour is doable. One of the best sushi in Orlando. Take care

On a recent visit to Shari, we sat at the sushi bar. The quality an freshness of the fish wasn't quite there. You could see the slimy and mushy texture on some of the fish. We attempted to order the firecracker ceviche only to learn they are now using tilapia as the base fish . We quickly changed our mind... More

As headline says, very fresh sushi, and this place has a very trendy, but not to over the top atmosphere. I love the white tuna Escolar.

The hostess could have been friendlier and more accommodating, but John G made up for her offish welcome with his excellent service. This guy goes above and beyond to ensure you have everything you need. The sushi was excellent and John made an excellent suggestion for my sake choice. The birthday dessert he arranged for us was a perfect way... More
