Rockin’ Food at Rock’n Sushi in Fort Myers

Rock’n Sushi is a lowkey hidden gem in Gateway, a suburb/neighborhood in Fort Myers. They offer Japanese and Thai cuisine, along with sushi. 

Cuisine: Japanese, Thai, and sushi

Great for: happy hour, date night, dinner with friends, takeout 

I went to Rock’n Sushi for a lowkey happy hour and dinner with a friend. First, I had no idea this place existed and it seems like it’s one of those places that everyone in Gateway knows about.

Second, while the name is Rock’n Sushi, the Chicken Pad Thai is some of the best I’ve had.

Rock’n Sushi’s Atmosphere

As I mentioned, I’d never even heard of Rock’n Sushi before my friend told me she ordered takeout from there quite often. Being a sucker for Pad Thai, I knew I just had to try it.

We decided to meet for a quiet Tuesday night dinner and happy hour, and I was the first to arrive. The restaurant is tucked away in Gateway, right near Skinny Dogz. As soon as I walked in, I was surprised to see how modern and open the space was.

There is ample seating, and the bar is also a nice place to sit. We sat near the back, where you can see water from a lake or retention pond.

The vibes inside Rock’n Sushi are laid back and the staff was friendly and attentive. The happy hour specials were nice, too.

Rock’n Sushi’s Menu

Their menu is quite large for a place that has “sushi” in the name. They’ve got several appetizers to choose from, as well as a collection of Japanese and Thai cuisine. I’m not much of a sushi eater, but I imagine this place is a sushi lover’s paradise. There are SO MANY ROLLS.

What We Ordered

I’m a huge Pad Thai fan. So, naturally, I knew that was what I wanted to get. Here’s a full overview of what we ate.

  • Hurricane Spring Rolls – I was hesitant about this at first because, again, I’m not much of a sushi fan. But these were absolutely incredible. They were perfectly crisped and the flavors came through more and more with every bite.

  • Miso Soup – this is another favorite of mine. It was a standard bowl of miso (also delicious).

  • Ginger Salad – I also love a good ginger salad. I’ve tried several throughout the area, and this is definitely a part of the top 5.

  • Chicken Pad Thai (spice level 2, to be exact) – this is one of the best Pad Thai dishes I’ve ever had. The spice level was absolute perfection and there was a perfect blend of noodles, sauce, peanuts, and other ingredients.
