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.

Sora is a hidden gem in Brevard, NC. It looks like nothing from the outside, sharing mall space with Walmart and Bi Lo. Step inside and you will be welcomed by a courteous and attentive staff. I am not a sushi fan, but my friends tell me the sushi is very good. My order usually falls in the Japanese entrees... More

To be perfectly honest, I was hesitant to try this. The atmosphere did not shout out to me "Hey this is a great Japanese restaurant" But it was close to our hotel and the kids were starving. I had the steak hibachi which was phenomenal. I'm pretty good with the chop sticks which they provide instead of regular silverware which... More

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.
