Tucked away in a small plaza on Rt. 41 in PG, family owned & operated, you won't be disappointed by anything you order here. One of the best miso soups I've ever had…yes, you might think miso soup is simple but most of the time it's too simple & too salty, not here. My husband thinks the baked salmon is... More

Amimoto is a small, but very good place to enjoy very traditional and fresh Japanese food. The owner is Japanese, which is very rare and brings his traditions and love of country to his food. Now it is small, I think only twenty tables so make reservations. The tuna is world class, as good as any in the state.

GREAT SUSHI! Service is good too. We've had about every roll on the menu and none disappointed. The appetizers amd miso soup are top notch as well. Wash it all down with a Japanese beer and you'll have a great dinner.

I lived in Japan for a year, and didn't have sushi as good as what I had at Amimoto last night. I lived in the northeast for years, and in California for a while, and didn't have sushi as good or as fresh. This place is excellent -- I agree 100% with the previous reviewer who said it's one of... More

Don't listen to all these silly people giving this place a bad name... I've lived in this area my whole life and one thing is for sure is you don't find high quality without paying a price for it. So you have to wait a little long when you would like.... I'm sorry but it's so worth the wait for... More

After I had a nightmare taste of sushi in Orlando,I was a pretty suspicious about sushi in Florida. But it blew my mind off. As many reviewers pointed,you have to wait at least half hour. Because sushi master,I mean real master of sushi but not assistant or help, is only one. And he creates every single real sushi. Taste was... More

First time customer and I went in for take out. After filling out my sushi order I was told they were too busy to take my order. I thought the other reviewer was taking things out of proportion. But he was correct. 40% of an average restaurant is take out orders. This place needs to learn the value of time... More

I've had sushi all over the country from New York City to Chicago and beyond, but who knew the best sushi I've ever had would be in a very small establishment in Punta Gorda, Florida. I read the reviews and the bar was raised pretty high about the quality of food. The reviews warned that this little gem was located... More

I'm going to give this restaurant 4/5. But it has been a while since I visited but i would definitely go back. Let me just say that this is not your average sushi chain type of restaurant. The atmosphere is nice. Peaceful and not too bright. Service was a bit less than great. They are very friendly but there's only... More

Obviously a family run operation with high standards and laid back atmosphere. The food was great, and the staff was attentive. We were myself and my wife, our 9 y/o boy, and our 5 month old little girl. The atmosphere was cozy, welcoming, and the clientele was local. An unexpected find in an otherwise fried fish and beer oriented region.... More
