Great authentic Japanese ambience, fresh sushi, nice atmosphere. A real surprise - tucked away in the corner of very quiet strip mall.

I have been here twice and both times it was pretty full. The seating is comfortable and the lighting is pleasant the waiter seem very accomplished and professional. We all ordered the gyoza and they were delicious. I lived in Hawaii for 30 years and these were comparable. All in all it was a very good meal.

Amimoto Japanese Restaurant in Punta Gotda ranks one of my best restaurants experience anywhere in US and Japan. Always fresh Sashimi! Tony, the master chef is amazingly creative backed by dedicated staff who work in the kitchen. Try everything on the menu, sushi, tempura,tuna,udon,miso soup and don't forget the deserts!
