Love it!

The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired, but the prices can't be beat. The food is good, but some of the chefs are better than others. Worth a visit.

Used to go here all the time when I lived in Mt Dora. Haven't been in a couple of years so I thought my family and I could do dinner here. What a mistake!!! Half of us ordered hibachi, other half ordered sushi. Hibachi came out in a decent amount of time. OVER AN HOUR after hibachi dinners were served,... More

We eat here often even though it's a bit pricey. The sushi is FANTASTIC! We know the wait staff fairly well and know all the cooks. So happy we have this place to go to. Tried all the other Japanese steakhouses around and NOTHING compares to Lampu's!

Eaten here for years and do not have one complaint. Foods great, staffs great, and clean. I recommend the white sauce and a dragon for two. Other japanese restaurants don't compare. Sounds like I'm advertising but it really has never given me a negative view. Oh and bdays mean meal on the house

Do not waste your time going here !! We thought we would try this since it was close to home, bad choice. The atmosphere of the restaurant is not very appealing. Looks very dirty and not well maintained. We both ordered filet and chicken. The filet was not a very good cut as there were pieces so tough that we... More

We love Japanese food. We love hibachi grills. Get to meet some nice people this way. For what you spend in this place it's all worth it. I think it's time to go back!

I went to Lampu today UNFORTUNATELY. This food was HORRIBLE, the gentleman that wiped the grill down and smelled like dog then placed the rag on my husbands drink. His carts was made from PVC pipe and duct tape. Not to even mention his POOR POOR spatula tossing show and his vacant train "show". The soup was ramen noddles and... More

Food was average and servings less than at similar resturants of this type. The 18% gratuity charge that was not itemized on the final bill I was given was definitely a disappointment. My wife and I tip at the 15% rate and expect a 18-21% for room service. Was given an itemized bill with attitude when we requested one. I... More
