We were staying the night at the Hampton Inn right next to a shopping center. In the center was a small Japanese restaurant. My wife and I decided that a to-go order (Bento Box and some sushi) was good for us. While I waited for my order, several of the staff stopped to talk and make sure I was taken... More

Love most of the food here, except they changed the Tom Kha Gai soup recipe. Liked it when it was more creamy coconut, rather than the more chicken brothy version.

Stumbled upon Sora's in the shopping center next to the Hampton Inn where we were staying. Many locals eating there on a weekday night. Had teriyaki chicken and a fish dish. Both were quite good, service excellent. Didnt sample the sushi. Prices reasonable. Informal type place. Definitely recommended.

I was visiting family in Brevard and we ate at Sora's. I have the Seaford soup which was nice size pieces of shrimp and crabs and nicely flavored. I also had the Hibachi chicken and shrimp which was very good. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive.

My husband and I were here recently and as always, the sushi was amazing. I had the green monster and it was delicious. My husband ordered the thai chicken fried rice and it really wasn't to brag about. He said it tasted very "Americanized". We had to ask for something to spice it up. Service was pretty slow as well... More

In my opinion this is now the best restaurant in Brevard. The quality of both the rolls and the sashimi is absolutely top notch. I just had their sushi/sashimi combo and it was flawless. Even their miso soup is perfect. I eat lots of sushi and this place is like an oasis in the desert. The service is good and... More

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....
