My family and I decided to take a mini-trip to Longwood, on the north side of Orlando, for some decent sushi. Although it took us the better part of an hour from the Lake Buena Vista area, we were not disappointed.

The outside didn't look like much, but the interior has clean, modern, LED-lit decor (see my interior photo). This is a sushi and traditional washoku style restaurant; those looking for the flashy hibachi/teppanyaki show typical of many "Japanese steakhouse" establishments will need to look elsewhere.

We were seated promptly-- which was to be expected, as it was early to mid-afternoon. Our first server had a little difficulty answering our initial questions. So she quickly employed the assistance of Iwan, who handled us for the rest of the meal with ease and, as he had considerable culinary experience from all around the area, gave helpful tidbits of advice about other popular area eateries to try and others to avoid.

We had several selections from the sushi menu; one was a daily-special lobster roll, as pictured in my other photo. It tasted great, as did all our other picks.

The prices are competitive with other sushi vendors in the area, so the value is right on par. Yes, this is a bit out of the way for non-locals, but I must admit that the overall food quality and upgraded atmosphere is worth the trip.

This place is an old fazoli's and before that a Rex's roast beef. You would never be able to tell. You step inside to a cozy and great atmosphere. The coconut shrimp bent box was awesome! Sushi was excellent! I'll be going back!

This place was a surprise as a first time visit: good location, easy parking @ a traffic light, nondescript building till you enter and WOW! It was a very modern interior design that was very chic for a sushi place. The sushi was average, the service was good but mechanical, but the decor offsets the average. Nothing about the specialty rolls "wowed" me, just average sushi that was fresh and presented appropriately. Didn't get any suggestions from server who barely engaged the table. As normal, way over ordered....

We went for a late night (10pm) sushi dinner. The restaurant was in a convenient, easy to find location on a main road. A nice little touch was a water feature outside as you came in from the parking lot. There is outside dining and this made the sound of the traffic much nicer. The building is on the small side, so we weren't expecting much, but we were very pleasantly surprised! Beside the nice outside eating area, the interior design was very pretty. Polished wood and a nice subdued atmsphere greeted us. There was a sushi bar and dining booths. The booths were divided with glass that shown with blue-colored lights from columns that were clear and bubbled. Such a nice urban-style decor that we just loved. Much attention to detail. There were still a lot of people dining at that late hour, but we were seated immediately. The staff were efficient and pleasant, but not overly friendly. Neither the host, nor the waitress smiled until we commented on the waitresses name and then she smiled. There was a large selection of rolls and we thought the prices were more than reasonable. We chose the signature Bayridge sushi roll, which though it was tasty, only had 4 thin pieces with 2 end pieces. However the Crazy Crunch roll was fabulous. It was a huge roll, crunchy, warm and very delicious. The miso soup was also one of the best we've ever tasted. My husband did go a little bit of time without a refill in his drink, but we were served the drinks immediately and the food came out really quickly too. We have just moved back to the area and this is now our favorite sushi place. You have to go if for nothing but to bask in the ambience and try that Crunch roll. Yum!
