California rolls are terrific. For those who like sushi, this is the place to get it in Brevard. I ordered the Pad Thai with chicken. The portion was too large for me to eat, but my husband did eat all of his. Perfectly seasoned. If you are a green tea fan, try theirs. The location is in a strip mall... More

My boyfriend were looking for a spot to get lunch after a long morning of hiking in Pisgah National Forest, and we happened upon Sora. What a wonderful surprise to find this gem--we would never have expected to find such excellent sushi and hibachi in western NC! We enjoyed our meal so much, we made a point of coming back... More

Even though I eat at Sora all the time, they always have something amazing, exciting and delicious for us to try. From the appetizers to the entrees to the hot sake (or cold sake), everything about Sora is exceptional. The staff and management is always attentive to the needs of their guests. If you're in Brevard, Sora is definitely a... More

The place was insanely crowded but we had a reservation for 10. Server was SO busy, but managed to do a fantastic job and we were never left lacking. Great find in Pisgah!

Sora's is an above average Japanese restaurant in the local shopping strip mall. It offers a relaxing atmosphere for dining. The staff is friendly. The sushi is good. The entrees are good portions.

Call me pretentious, but I wasn't sure Brevard (Pisgah Forest) could have a good, much less great, sushi restaurant. But these folks have consistently provided great food and personable service. I generally visit weekly, always order the "fancy salmon roll" and the crab salad, and have never been disappointed! Give them a try, and see if you don't agree.

LOVE Sora! The food, the service and the location! We hit this spot every time we get done with a hike in Pisgah National Forest near Brevard, NC. Love the Eternity Roll, the spicy crab salad, the Bonzai Roll and the daily sushi chef specials.
