I've been going to Sushi Chef since 2000 and I absolutely loved their food, the owner is Japanese, the staff are very nice, so far I liked everything I tried but I mostly ask for the lucky bento which has everything I love. Don't expect a fancy place, is not, but is clean and the sushi is good with a... More

I visit this restaurant at least once a week, mostly for dinner but also on occasion for lunch. Never disappoints! Chef Enomoto is amazing and does quality control checks on every dish that is being put out to his clients. The best Uni in town... my favorite is the premium and the salt water. Heaven!!! Ankimo (monkfish liver pate) is... More

I ordered take out sushi to bring back to my hotel after a really touch work day on the road. Sushi Chef was THE ONLY sushi place in Coral Gables that was open between lunch and dinner. Seems like while many of them were open for lunch and dinner, they are closed a couple hours between the two meals. I... More

Hi Michelle, happy new years and thank you for giving us that great review after visiting Sushi Chef and after your tough day of work. Sorry to hear that the Tuna Diablo Roll was not what you expected but we do not add any BBQ sauce of any kind. The roll has Sriracha, kimchee sauce and sesame oil. Like you... More

Sushi Chef Japanese Restaurant is the brain child of Executive Chef Fusao Enomoto. Born in Akita Prefecture in Northern Japan, chef Enomoto was interested in the culinary arts at a young age. He moved to Tokyo and in 1958 he entered the Tokiwa-ya company, supplier to the Imperial Household Agency (office to the Emperor and Empress and other Imperial Family), where under the tutelage and guidance of Grand Chef Ryozo Satoh he starts his education and training obtaining his license cook certificate in 1960. In 1965 he travels to Caracas, Venezuela as the Japanese Embassy's attache and later that year to the Embassy in Bucharest, Romania. To further his cooking career Chef Enomoto moves to Paris, France where he becomes a classical trained French chef. He practice his new skills in France and soon retires from the Japanese Embassy to look for better opportunities. He goes back to Caracas in 1971 to open Kamon Restaurant, Venezuela's first Japanese restaurant with much accolade. With this success in 1978 he opens Avila Tei Restaurant, which is a fine cuisine Japanese restaurant which these days is still open under Chef Enomoto majority partner. In 1984 Chef Enomoto travels to New Jersey on a new horizon as the Head Chef of Tokyo Restaurant for many years. Chef Enomoto and his family travel to sunny South Florida and in 1991 establish Sushi Chef Japanese Restaurant where in the beginning was a Japanese market and a few tables for lunch. As the years went by Sushi Chef has grown to be one of Miami's hidden treasures for locals to get their Japanese food. In 2011 Sushi Chef celebrated 20 years of great food and service where Chef Enomoto is still amazing his customers with one of Miami's best Japanese dishes.
