Sora Japanese Restaurant Pisgah Forest Reviews
Oriental Delight Aug 26, 2015
A surprisingly nice sushi joint in the middle of nowhere, Sora features a pleasing décor and a strict, standard menu. By “strict” I mean it was exclusively Japanese. Over the years I’ve noticed many sushi places extend offerings to Korean dishes and though not fatal (many whip up excellent sushi + sashimi), ones focusing solely on sushi have consistently been stellar.
Sora maintained that track record. I ordered their Chirashi Sushi and while the fish was not as fresh as I prefer, it was still quite satisfactory, well prepared and well presented. You only get a choice between miso soup or salad, not both, but my salad was the usual with ginger dressing and a nice start. Service was attentive and polite without being suffocating (fairly standard service for a sushi restaurant).
Bottom line is that Sora delivers very good sushi. Not incredibly amazing sushi, but given the remote location, a terrific meal exceeding expectations.
