When people ask me where my favorite sushi joint is I always tell them Amura. On this last visit, however, the sushi was less than stellar. We know before we sit down what we are going to order, with a few variations. We always get the Bubba Roll and Rolls Roys. Occasionally making the mix is Tokyo (a little spicy),... More

This is by far the best sushi restaurant I've ever been to. Can't go in without eating the Volcano Roll. I really really love it and would take my friends at least 2 times a week when I lived in lake mary for the summer. Excited I got to go back this past May! excellent!

Nice atmosphere, good sushi, but this visit was a little disappointing. The time between ordering and arrival of the food and dessert was too long, especially at 5:30 when the restaurant was nearly empty. The server was Okay, but should have stayed on top of the orders.

I should cease going to Japanese steakhouses because it has been forever since I visited one that was fun. As I've said in previous reviews, the table chef is part of the experience and really needs to be a showman. That said, it is so very rare to find one who is really good at his job. They can all...

Firstly, I would like to thank you for your compliments on our sushi we really appreciate it. I am so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience in our Hibachi Grill Area of the restaurant. The chef has many years of experience and is normally much more entertaining with our guest, so I am sad to hear that... More

My friend raves about this place. We met up for dinner and I don't get the hype. I enjoyed my food, it was fresh and very tasty. The atmosphere was very nice. I will go back some day when I am in the area, however, I did not have anything that was extraordinary.

Went to lunch with some ladies and we all enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and the service. Our favorite rolls were the Rock and Roll Roll ($12) and the Volcano Roll ($12) They featured Bento Boxes and Salads as well for lunch all of which were delicious. Always a good decision if you love Sushi!!!

This is a place I frequent for sushi, even though it is a bit of a drive. They have a nice menu of raw rolls and the fish is always extremely fresh. More than half the time the service is terrible - very slow, behaving as if they are doing you a favor by waiting on you. On several occasions... More

I suggest trying everything on the menu, we had a large group and everything was amazing! It is worth the wait for the sushi: recommend the Volcano roll and the Tango Mango roll.

I have been to Amura a few times for special events, have focused on company over food. I recently had a very disappointing meal at Fishbones so I approached tonight with a critical eye. I have read a lot of criticism of the service but our waitress, Haruhi, was excellent. She was knowledgeable of the menu, gracious with questions and... More
