Japanese Restaurants in Chesapeake

Select Local Merchants

Though shoji screens, wall-mounted Japanese fans, and natural-wood tones lend a calming simplicity to the decor, Geisha Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar doesn't lack for spectacle. At hibachi stations, chefs entertain diners with witty banter and flashy knife skills as they sear orders of filet mignon, scallops, or lobster tail on the tables' hot-grill surfaces. Behind a wooden bar, sushi chefs adopt a more reserved stance, quietly accessorizing maki with premium ingredients, including shitake mushrooms, spicy sesame oil, and pickled radish.

After slicing rolls into bite-size pieces stuffed with crab meat and lobster salad, the sushi chefs are only halfway done. Plating comes next, and that's where the chefs really flex their creative muscles. Two shaved-down carrots sticks at the end of a roll transform it into a caterpillar. Colorful sauce artfully drizzled on a plate turns into butterfly wings attached to the roll’s body. Back in the kitchen, the chefs stick to classic Asian entrees as they glaze chicken fillets with teriyaki sauce and encase shrimp in crispy tempura batter. Blue lights illuminate the otherwise softly lit eatery—ideal for a romantic dinner or a laid-back table tennis match.
