    We are sorry that we made it to this restaurant but upon arriving determined that this was not a good fit for our dietary needs. The restaurant could not accommodate any vegetarian items and it was quite empty and dark and unappealing so we respectfully told the server that we had changed our mind and left the restaurant. So, please note that this was not a “no show”. Thanks

    They don’t use open table so if you make a reservation it doesn’t show up. They wer able to still seat us quickly. Service was good food was just okay. We had some appetizers or small plates to start. Ended up not ordering an entree because the appetizers were t good. No seasoning and flavorless.

    We were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Sarasota has terrible Chinese food but this place is an exception. Suggestions for improvement are to have some music on in the background and add a bit more flavor to the dishes. Spicy orange beef was not spicy at all. All in all it was a great meal.

    Very surprised that this was rated as one of the top sushi in Sarasota. The Sushi came to the table warm, it was almost slimy. Universally flavorless even when ordering the specialty rolls. There’s absolutely nothing special about this restaurant. Service was efficient and perfunctory but no personality with any of the waitstaff

    Spent a birthday weekend in Sarasota. We made reservations thinking it may be limited seating due to distancing. Upon arrival, it was just our party at 7:30. The place quickly filled at 8:00 for a Saturday night. We thoroughly enjoyed and recommend the Dancing Shrimp roll. We ended up ordering another one since it was so good! The Udon soup noodle was ok. I’ve had better at other places. It was too much with the chicken in it. The broth was ok. We complimented the sushi chef as he did excellent on our sushi orders. Our servers were attentive but sure could’ve had more personality. We would revisit again.

    Excellent Chinese dishes, more flavorful than most other Asian restaurants in the area. Friendly staff. Fresh fruit dessert was a nice touch. I was surprised at the quality of ingredients. All 5 of us were happy!

    Ordinary but bland Japanese food. Decor is sparse and restaurant has a worn out look. Location is on Sarasota’s glitzy Main Street where one would expect a bit more upscale interior.

    Slightly chaotic start as no tables free despite my having booked. Sat and waited at bar. Really was worth the wait. Emphasis is definitely on the food not the premises. Sushi was freshly made to order and was delicious. Will definitely be going back to sample a lot more of the menu.

    First visit and it will not be our last. The food and service were great. Szechuan dumplings, Singapore noodles and Silk Road Cumin Beef - all were delicious.

    Very disappointed. Heard good things but must have been family. Food was mediocre at best tuna was not fresh.Rolls done quickly but the result was not compatible to any decent sushi restaurant. Service was worse than the food. Lackluster is a good definition of poor service throughout the visit. Very quiet. No people on Saturday at 7pm. No value for bad food. Must be better sushi somewhere.

    Wild Ginger has very good Asian food. The sushi was fresh and very tasty. The décor is somewhat dark. I would recommend Wild Ginger for the food and friendly service.

    We have eaten here several times and the quality is always top notch. Lots of great Sushi choices. The best hamachi Kama I have found yet. Service is great - very attentive and friendly. It is a very welcoming atmosphere with excellent food.

    Absolutely excellent, the food tasty and delicious, the service, very attentive and pleasant and the value is spot on. Had the Gorgeous entire (yup, that’s the name of it), and my friend had the Asian Malaysian Chicken Curry. Both were were perfection. Can’t wait to go back there.
