Three members of our group love sushi, so we wanted to eat somewhere that had great sushi. Tokyo dining was referred to us so we decided to give it a try. We had a small problem because we went on test track and was making our way to the restaurant. That is when we realized we had left the stroller with our belongings at the entrance of Test Track. So my boyfriend and son went back while me and my daughter went ahead to make our reservation. Three more people were going to be eating with us and were just entering Epcot. The first thing I noticed was the huge flight of stairs we had to climb. When we go to the top, there was a lobby where one would check in. This lobby was for two restaurants, Tokyo Dining and Teppan Epo. It was really crowded in there. When I checked in I was advised that we could not check in until our whole party was there. Well the three showed up and so we were only missing two so we were able to check in. we were shown to a table with a wonderful view of the lake.
Our server was attentive and started out with giving us hot towels to wash our hands. Then we ordered drinks and food. I had the Panko Chicken with Miso Soup, Sumomono, Noodle Salad, and Sukiyaki Beef Rice. The soup was to be sipped as in the traditional Japanese way. The noodle salad was delicious as was the beef rice and chicken. The Sumomono was an acquired taste. My boyfriend ordered the Grilled Steak Combination with Tempura Shrimp with Seasonal Vegetable, and Sukiyaki Beef Rice. He said the steak was cooked well and the rice was great. However since he let his son eat some of his shrimp (son was really hungry) he said he didn't get enough to eat. The older kids loved the sushi and the younger kids loved the airplane shaped kids plate. Dessert was good, I had the chocolate ginger cake. The best thing though was when the fireworks started we could see it all. We had a great view. It was spectacular. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in Epcot.
