With world-famous resorts like Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Legoland located in its midst, Orlando, Florida is best known as the land of theme parks. However, it’s got a lot more to offer than just a day of coasters and carousels. For one, it’s near Florida’s iconic beaches along the east coast, with the nearest beach being less than an hour’s drive away. There are also a number of beautiful parks and rivers across the city, if you want a break from all the excitement. Food-wise, Orlando doesn’t disappoint as well. The city has a wide range of cuisines for you to choose from, but the sushi offerings in particular stand out. Who knew Orlando had such good sushi? Here are the top 10 sushi restaurants in Orlando, Florida.

1. Seito Sushi Japanese Restaurant


Seito Sushi is widely hailed as one of the best sushi places in Orlando - this is no small feat, considering the number of sushi restaurants that have appeared across the city. They offer a range of unique sushi rolls, such as the Sweetheart Roll (stuffed with coconut shrimp, cream cheese crab salad and glazed with apricot and eel sauce). Definitely try the Distinguished Gentleman Roll that’s filled with lobster, topped with wagyu beef and garnished with truffle aioli oil, because any sushi with wagyu beef on it is bound to be good. For those who aren’t too keen on sushi, the restaurant also serves a mean bowl of Japanese ramen and black pepper beef.

2. The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar

No, the name of this establishment isn’t a typo. In a world of cronuts, lasagna pizzas and capookies, the burgushi, a burger-sushi medley that first appeared in North Carolina, doesn’t seem all that strange - and it isn’t. The Cowfish, the proud pioneer of the burgushi, boasts an extensive menu made with fresh, chemical-free ingredients. There’s even a bento box (with a mini-burger and four pieces of roll) for traditionalists who prefer their burgers and sushi separate. The restaurant offers a fun dining experience as well, being decked out with eclectic pop art pieces, cowfish decor, and lively servers. Who said you can’t have your burgushi and eat it?

5. Sushi Kichi Japanese Restaurant


Don’t be fooled by its location in a quiet strip mall; Sushi Kichi is an unassuming, family-run sushi joint that serves some pretty good rolls. Start with their Edamame or crispy, deep fried tempura to whet your appetite, then order the Unagi Don, a bowl of steaming hot Japanese rice topped with succulent chunks of eel as your main course - you won’t be disappointed.

Watching how your food gets prepared makes it taste that much better. In addition to its delicious Teppanyaki and steak menu, the steakhouse prepares an extensive selection of sushi as well. Portion sizes are rather big, so be prepared to share.

Posted by Kabooki Sushi on Monday, 25 September 2017

Kabooki Sushi is a stylish, modern sushi restaurant that’s famous for its Omakase experience, provided by chef Henry Moso. He’s got a very wide and creative repertoire of sushi offerings, so every Omakase meal is a unique and tantalizing experience. The regular menu doesn’t disappoint as well, with the Moriawase Nigiri (thickly-sliced daily special fish served with specially imported Japanese sauce). Due to its popularity, it’s best to call ahead for a reservation during peak periods, as it can get quite busy (for Omakase meals, the restaurant only accepts reservations).

Having a late night sushi craving? With three locations across Orlando, that’s open well past midnight, Izziban’s got you covered. This casual joint provides an all-you-can-eat buffet Korean barbeque, which also includes unlimited sushi (although that’s probably not the best idea past midnight!). Definitely drop by for their lunch special on an empty stomach.
