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.
