There’s no shortage of sushi restaurants in and around Santa Ana, California. With the ocean just a stone’s throw away, we never find ourselves lacking the freshest fish possible. 

If you want our opinion, though, ShariNori stands out from the rest, not only for its fresh and beautiful dishes but also for its takeout- and delivery-only business model. Here’s what you need to know about ShariNori and what the reviewers say.

All About ShariNori

The restaurant, located inside the 4th Street Market in Santa Ana, California, opened in June 2020—i.e., the time other restaurants were closing. However, it has thrived during the past year by offering starters, boxes, platters, rolls, sashimi add-ons, and now dessert. You’ll find mini mochi doughnuts, panna cotta, custard, and its sweet specialty: cakesicles. 

Here’s how ordering works:

  • First, order online for takeout or delivery. The restaurant makes each order based on the pickup or delivery time to ensure maximum freshness.
  • Next, pick up your order at 201 E. 4th Street, or wait for it to arrive during your delivery window.

ShariNori is open from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. If you have questions, you can contact the restaurant at or by text at (949) 864-6818. Watch the restaurant’s Facebook and Instagram accounts for special promotions and gorgeous photos of sushi. It also offers catering for corporate meetings, weddings, and other events.
