“Was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Sushi was a little chewy but was ok and we arrived during happy hour, which was the only way we could dine because I was not told about reservation even after I had called the day before. The atmosphere by the bar and on the first floor was cramped for space but overall average rating.

“Fine sushi, nice environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Came here with some colleagues on a Friday night. There was a good crowd and the atmosphere is lively and hip. Food is good, drinks are tasty, and service is efficient. Nothing extraordinary, but a great find in central Orlando.

Nestled in chic Thornton Park, Shari adds a level of sophistication and a tingle of excitement to the area with its dynamic style of Modern Japanese Cuisine. Full bar and stylish atmosphere. Innovative drinks and unique menu selections.

“Nice happy hour, good location, bit overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Love the atmosphere, the sushi is great! Haven't had other dishes. The HAPPY hour pricing is around $6 per roll and same price for alcoholic beverages.

Have never been outside happy hour, seems outrages pricing. Happy hour is doable. One of the best sushi in Orlando. Take care

“Change I quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

On a recent visit to Shari, we sat at the sushi bar. The quality an freshness of the fish wasn't quite there. You could see the slimy and mushy texture on some of the fish. We attempted to order the firecracker ceviche only to learn they are now using tilapia as the base fish . We quickly changed our mind and ordered goyza and tuna tataki both were average at best. Seems that there must be a change if management or chefs that have let te standards slip.
