“Pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

First time here, and we really enjoyed ourselves!
We were there at opening, 5:30pm on a Friday... good thing, because by the time we left, it was almost full of patrons!
We ordered a little bit of different things so we could try. A Kirin light beer, very good.....and miso soup, 3 different Rolls and Tempura. Freshly made.... lightly breaded.
My husband and I loved them all! We were so excited by each dish; and the pleasantries of the servers.
We are DEFINITELY going back.... super!

“Good Sushi - somewhat over priced”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Having survived the last few years economy and residing in a small town environment says a great deal about this restaurant. They do have an almost cult following for this area. The sushi is very good but pricey and the service can be slow to very slow and uneven.

“Captive Audience”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Last night was the 3rd time we visited Amimoto in Punta Gorda hoping for good sushi, but each time we leave with the same thoughts: expensive, slow and sushi ok, nothing great. We did have a different waitress last night who was very charming. We ordered edamame and 4 rolls with the California roll at $13 the most expensive and actually the best of the lot. I noticed that about 1/2 of the patrons ordered from the kitchen and those dishes all looked good, but we like sushi and are frustrated that Amimoto doesn't quite measure up.

“Great Japanese Restaurant”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This restaurant is in a small center that looks closed, so we were worried the place might not be good. But, it was and we enjoyed everything they made. The prices were reasonable. By time we left it was busy.

“Do Not Miss”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is a treasure for Asian cuisine. The entrees are without exception excellent and the service is wonderful. Not so special on the wine list, but some Asian beer will do. For a real treat, stick to the Sushi....there isn't a bad role and they are absolutely fresh.
