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 blonde wood and fabric decor conforms neatly to your expectations of a soothing Japanese restaurant—it draws a steady trade of Japanese visitors hungry for a taste of home—and so does the rest, from the greeting when you walk in the door to the deep bowls of flavorsome soup. The fun Ishiyaki Mix Steak allows you to grill meat and vegetables on a hot stone placed on your table. Best of all, because of a tucked-away location in a strip mall near the Kings Bowl Orlando, it’s rarely crowded. At lunchtime, it adds ramen to the menu.
