The theme parks never saw a fish they didn’t want to batter-fry. So here, the fresh sushi, chicken and salmon teriyaki, and udon or soba noodle soups make for a refreshing palate-cleanser. The blond wood and fabric decor conforms neatly to expectations of a soothing Japanese restaurant—but if you know Japanese food, you’ll find it’s of a higher caliber, and as a result it draws a steady trade of Asian visitors hungry for a taste of home. Best of all, because of a tucked-away location in a strip mall near the Kings Bowl Orlando, it’s rarely crowded.
