With a location on Main Street Lakewood Ranch, the original Jpan in Paradise Plaza in Sarasota is a second home to our family.

Award winning volcano roll and the ramen noodle soup with tender thinly sliced char su pork -- outstanding.  Owner and Sushi Chef Daniel Dokko  and his General Manager, the ever hospitable Noriko Beardow, promotes both authentic and playful Japanese dishes.

Doggy dining outside is so popular with our dogs.

Jpan is located at 3 Paradise Plaza in Sarasota (South Tamiami Trail and Bee Ridge Road), and at 8126 Main Street in Lakewood Ranch.
