Sora has delicious Japanese and Thai cuisine. I enjoy watching the Japanese sushi chefs rolling the most beautiful and delicious rolls you have ever seen. Their Bento boxes are outstanding. Each chamber holds a different and flavor- layered item. Their light and crunchy tempura is the best I have ever had and are consistently good. They offer wine and cocktails... More

My wife and I had lunch on a Sat. Atmosphere for a small mountain town is a 10 and not done on a shoe string, food a 10, and service a 10. My lunch cost $7.95, included tempura vegies, sushi, soup, and two other items. The presentation was quite special. Seems the owners do pay attention to detail. Would highly... More

Sora is a little gem in Brevard North Carolina and if you don't know where it is you may miss it. They have very well prepared standard Japanese fare like teriyaki and tempura. They also serve a fairly good Udon. Where they shine is sushi. It is very nicely presented and always fresh.

Great food with so many choices for everyone. The fried oyster appetizer is fabulous and I don't love oysters. The Bento box lunch is a great deal. I had the red curry chicken today. Great for a cool rainy day. Nice atmosphere. Service a little slow.

We ate here 2x during our 7 night stay in Brevard. The food was very good. We tried several dishes including sushi. The only down side was the service from our waitress. She was not up to par and not friendly or smiling. Which is unusual since everyone in Brevard would always greet people with a welcoming smile. The men... More

my husband and I saw this restaurant on several occasions and said to ourselves," sushi, in the mountains?"...then we finally said let's do it . We did not realize that this was David's Zhangs' s (the owner of Umi in Hendersonville) love child based on the amazing Umi. . It truly astounds me that two places in the middle of... More

My husband and I just returned from a weekend trip in the Brevard area. We looked on Trip Advisor for restaurant suggestions and Sora had great reviews for sushi and Japanese appetizers, which we both love. We had high expectations looking at the reviews. We were both a bit disappointed. The menu prices were quite high for the portions we... More

I have to be honest . I am from an older generation and never liked sushi but friend took me there and could not say no. It was actually pretty good. I had the Godzilla roll which was not completely raw (it was fried on the outside) and it was very tasty. I also had the ginger salad i think... More
