We love this restaurant and anticipate our visit for months (we're not locals). In fact, were visiting best week and my wife is putting off her birthday dinner until then so we can go here (her birthday is today!). I'm a sashimi lover and she orders from the regular menu. We've never been disappointed. We're from Raleigh and haven't found... More

This restaurant is not close to where we live, but well worth the drive. We have been fortunate to eat here twice in the last month. The sushi specials are imaginative with flavor combinations that make you wish you had room in your stomach for more. For the first time ever, we ordered enough sushi to warrant having a boat....

The sushi here is freshly made right in front of you if you wish to sit at the sushi bar and watch the talented chefs. The presentation is beautiful! My favorite dish is the Crispy Crab Salad, a finely shredded, lightly dressed, salad with a slight taste of sesame oil. The Bento Boxes, are a fun variety of many of... More

My family and I ate at Sora last night for dinner. It was excellent! You get a lot of food for the money. I highly recommend to anyone who loves good Japanese food! Go early. By the time we left, they had a line out the door!

We went in the recommendations of our waitress. Top quality sushi and very generous portions. The spicy crab salad lives up to its reputation. Make sure you get it (we shared one)

My wife enjoyed appetizers and Thai entrees. They were all beautiful, fresh, and delicious. Slena took great care of us. We couldn't keep our eyes off the sushi creations that were being made at the sushi bar. We will be return when we are back in town.

We were in town for the Fletcher Flyer bike ride and went to this restaurant due to the good reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The sushi was so, so, so good. It took great will power not to stuff our faces until we popped. Our waitress was very friendly and had a good sense of humor so that... More

We eat there whenever we're in town. the sushi is always fresh, the spicy crab salad is one of our favorites. You can see the sushi bar from anywhere in the restaurant and watch the creations come out. This is as good as any sushi I've eaten anywhere.
