When my business associate from out of state suggested dinner here I thought he have the wrong city. I love sushi and had never heard of purple. It's a cozy little cafe not far from the baseball stadium. The sushi was delicious and service was very good.

I was impressed! This is a quaint sushi/Japanese restaurant with a pretty extensive menu. The prices are reasonable and the sushi was excellent. Check out the bento box with sushimi and nigeri - it was $20 and very good. That coupled with a $5 roll is a substantial meal. A friend had the soft shell crab appetizer, and it was... More

Had dinner on a slow Monday night with a party of six. Food was really good but service was slow. Expected better service since it was not a busy night. Water glasses were empty and dishes not removed from tables in a timely manner. Again the food was really good so I will definitely go back.

With five sushi places on Main St, the competition is pretty stiff; I would rank Purple as the second best of the choices downtown. It's great that they have a variety of other Asian food options (more than just the usual Japanese entrees), for those that don't like sushi. But the hot stone bibimbap we had didn't quite match up... More

We had dinner at Purple to celebrate a friends birthday. The service was great and the food was even better. They had a wonderful selection of sushi rolls and other options to choose from. Everyone in our group had something different and every dish was outstanding!!

Came here last weekend with my husband, the sushi is the best I've had in Greenville! The firecracker roll is a must! The salmon sashimi was fantastic and our server was very polite. I will definitely recommend this place to all of my friends.

"Let's go eat sushi". Normally, that request would make me run for the hills. But, as I was a guest in Greenville, I wanted to try some local flair, and not offend my host. You see, I hate sushi. But this place, with the weird name, and perfect sever, made me want to come back again. And maybe try some... More
