Think you can't get great sushi in the mountains? Think again. Sora is a great little sushi place right by the entrance to the Pisgah Forest. As they are the same company as Umi, my review is going to be very similar. The sushi is very good, especially the spicy scallop roll...... highly, highly recommend. The rainbow and salmon rolls...

We dine here often and the quality has never changed. Always fresh and presented in a very artistic manner. The service is knowledgable and friendly. The spicy crab salad is a must! You need to try this place. You will be very pleased.

In Brevard we feel so lucky to have Sora's here. In the past year we've taken visitors from Indiana, California, Oregon and Washington DC. They all commented that it was some of the best sushi they'd ever had. Ask for the Pink Lady. I don't think it is officially on the menu but it's mango goodness.

Wonderful food! I'm not a sushi person, but others in my family love it here. There are many vegetarian options, including Thai food and yummy appetizers. Food is fresh and cooked just right. Not inexpensive, but good when you want to splurge a bit,

i arrived in town about dinner and pulled out my phone to find a place for dinner. Ironically, the #1 rated place was about a 100 yards away. This is a Japanese restaurant in a strip shopping mall, but don't let the outside fool you. The food was very tasty, fresh and hot. The salad and dressing was great as... More

Do not be fooled by location or the outside. Step inside to a little bit of sophistication, excellent and very friendly service and some of the best sushi and sashimi you'll ever taste. We each had a selection of sushi and sashimi, and every item was marvelous. Caviar, tuna, shrimp, octopus, salmon, it was all top shelf. We are in... More

We're snowbirds, living in both FL and NC, eating out for lunch often. Sora is our #1 favorite in the Brevard area, an Asian restaurant where we eat at least once weekly. We are greeted by friendly, efficient waiters who deliver bento boxes of shrimp tempura, fish katsu or chicken teriyaki to us after a delightful bowl of miso soup.... More

We have enjoyed many wonderful meals at Sora...atmosphere is attractive and relaxing; food is fresh and delicious. The sushi and tempura are always flavorful and beautifully presented. My husband loves the Thai green curry.

I have traveled all over the world and eaten sushi in many countries, including Japan. The fish offered at Sora's is fresh and amazing tasting. Highly recommend!

Including Asia where we have traveled on business and pleasure and eaten extensively, Sora provides the freshest and most unique Japanese and Thai dishes anywhere. We can't figure out how Sora's seafood, especially Tuna can be fresher in Western NC than anywhere else on the planet? That doesn't make sense. But oh how you will love their very tasty dishes!...
