I have been here twice and both times it was pretty full. The seating is comfortable and the lighting is pleasant the waiter seem very accomplished and professional. We all ordered the gyoza and they were delicious. I lived in Hawaii for 30 years and these were comparable. All in all it was a very good meal.

Amimoto Japanese Restaurant in Punta Gotda ranks one of my best restaurants experience anywhere in US and Japan. Always fresh Sashimi! Tony, the master chef is amazingly creative backed by dedicated staff who work in the kitchen. Try everything on the menu, sushi, tempura,tuna,udon,miso soup and don't forget the deserts!

If you want some truly fresh and well prepared sushi or sashimi this is the only place to go. I have been there three times in the last few months with friends and everyone was pleased.

I ordered the Alaska rolls and the volcano rolls, both were delicious! Another ordered the 14 count sushi platter dinner and had very fresh fish and... More

Tonight was maybe our fifth time to visit Amimoto since moving to Punta Gorda one year ago, and we were inspired to write this message after having yet another interesting, very pleasant, dining experience. We have been working our way through the menu, while revisiting favorites. What we especially like about this restaurant, besides the food, is the intimacy of... More
