Best scallops i ever had

Good place to eat. I'm from Ohio where seafood isn't the greatest. My scallops were tender and sweet and no Sandy grit. We had a new chef, but he was very good. They give you a whole bottle of the white sauce as opposed to most places giving you a little dish. Didn't try any of the sushi, as I... read more

I commute home and drive through Mt. Dora just to pick up take out from Lampu! They have excellent staff, courteous and friendly. The food is delicious. The best Japanese hibachi in my opinion. The chicken teriyaki is my personal favorite and the white sauce is spectacular! Each visit to lampu is always great food, great service, and great atmosphere.... More

This place is always entertaining & fun to eat at. We go with our family-driving over 30 miles to eat there. Always great to take out of town visitors there.

I've been here twice, neither time seated at the grill tables so still need to try that experience. First visit we sat at a small table in the back with the bar and 2nd visit was carry out. Food was very good both times. Server was very attentive regarding drink refill.

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

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.

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!
