Real japanese chef preparing sashimi, sushi, etc. Simple, but pleasant interior with carefully prepared dishes. You can also buy some delicacies like daifuku-mochi in a little market they have inside the restaurant.

Sushi Chef Japanese Restaurant is the brain child of Executive Chef Fusao Enomoto. Born in Akita Prefecture in Northern Japan, chef Enomoto was interested in the culinary arts at a young age. He moved to Tokyo and in 1958 he entered the Tokiwa-ya company, supplier to the Imperial Household Agency (office to the Emperor and Empress and other Imperial Family), where under the tutelage and guidance of Grand Chef Ryozo Satoh he starts his education and training obtaining his license cook certificate in 1960. In 1965 he travels to Caracas, Venezuela as the Japanese Embassy's attache and later that year to the Embassy in Bucharest, Romania. To further his cooking career Chef Enomoto moves to Paris, France where he becomes a classical trained French chef. He practice his new skills in France and soon retires from the Japanese Embassy to look for better opportunities. He goes back to Caracas in 1971 to open Kamon Restaurant, Venezuela's first Japanese restaurant with much accolade. With this success in 1978 he opens Avila Tei Restaurant, which is a fine cuisine Japanese restaurant which these days is still open under Chef Enomoto majority partner. In 1984 Chef Enomoto travels to New Jersey on a new horizon as the Head Chef of Tokyo Restaurant for many years. Chef Enomoto and his family travel to sunny South Florida and in 1991 establish Sushi Chef Japanese Restaurant where in the beginning was a Japanese market and a few tables for lunch. As the years went by Sushi Chef has grown to be one of Miami's hidden treasures for locals to get their Japanese food. In 2011 Sushi Chef celebrated 20 years of great food and service where Chef Enomoto is still amazing his customers with one of Miami's best Japanese dishes.
