Reviewed November 21, 2012

First time there.. food was great and the prices aren't insane like some of the other Japanese Steakhouses you could go to.. Cooks throw just enough humor into the mix to make it entertaining. Yum yum

“A must”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

My family and I love this place! The food is good and the prices are fair for your portion. I never eat it all and end up with lunch the next day. If you are in the area you gotta try this one.

We've gone here a few times and have enjoyed it. The food is pretty good and the cooks are always very entertaining. The prices aren't bad!

“Bonus 'Raccoon' w/ each meal: An MSG Experience”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

Based on my first review, and back then, about a dozen visits to Lampu, nothing much has changed. The decor got 'prettier' but, the food remains about the same. I read the reviews here and have to think most folks apparently have NO experience with tasty MSG. The 'funny' chef they speak of is covertly pouring "Yum Yum Sauce" or "CocaCola" all over your meal..which is actually an synonym for MonoSodium Glutamate- a taste enhancer. This sauce explodes your taste buds into a shower of excitement not seen since one's honeymoon. My wife had the Chicken & Steak Combo which was 'blessed' with enough MSG to cause her to have "bicycle leg" (wild pedaling of an imaginary bicycle), and her pacing the floor, ALL night long. By morning light, she, pretty much, looked like a rabid Raccoon with huge circles under her eyes. Obviously had a reaction. Some 'chefs' (loosing the term loosely) sprinkle a little bit into the rice, others shower the liquid into your meal like a typical Florida, torrential Summer rain storm, which can cause a reaction approximating St. Vitus Dance. I ordered the 16 pc. Sashimi Dinner and asked for the absence of Yamago (cold egg), and Octopus (Goodyear rubber, to me). The later was substituted with 'fish grizzle' cut too close to the top layer of the fish.....4 piece's, which I ended up spitting out 1 by 1. I also ordered the Saba and Mackeral Sushi, in addition, both of which were excellent. Two small Sapporo beers caused the tab to run over $70, with the tip, and... I received a Free Raccoon in the process. Too Bad Mt Dora Sushi and Crazy Buffet both closed. Unless my wife plans running in a wild forest Marathon , we will not return.
