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!...

My husband and I chose Sora for the celebration of our 36th wedding anniversary, and it was marvelous. My tofu appetizer and vegetable tempura were perfectly cooked - no grease!, and my husbands sushi & sashimi plate was beautiful to look at, fresh and decidedly delicious. After the wonderful meal we were presented with a tempura banana dessert for our... More

We were thrilled to find such great sushi in the small mountain town of Brevard. I try and eat there whenever I am in the area. Wonderful menu, nice atmosphere, consistently good. Does not disappoint.

We have only been in Brevard for a few weeks, yet have eaten here 3 times. We have eaten lots of sushi, all over the gulf coast and this restaurant is truly perfection. It is obvious that the owner and employees truly care about quality. Service has always been spot on and we have not found anything on the menu... More

This was our second time at Sora. We enjoyed the food, but the manager and the chef held a conversation across the room during our entire meal. The conversation was loud enough that we could not have our own conversation.
