I have traveled to Japan many, many times and haven't eaten in many Japanese restaurants. With the exception of one or two restaurants in Tokyo, this is the best Japanese restaurant that I know of. Unlike many Japanese restaurants in the United States, where the food is too Americanized, the food in this restaurant is very authentic. Who would have thought to find such an excellent restaurant in Punta Gorda Florida, well off the beaten path.

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!

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.

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.
