At Sake Sushi, amid high ceilings and wood accents, chefs fashion ocean-fresh seafood into signature sushi rolls such as the Sake roll, which pairs spicy crab with cuts of eight-ounce ribeye. On the meatier side of the menu, diners can find aged steaks, Asian-inspired fusion sandwiches, and entrees such as crispy, succulent duck breast with rice cakes and kimchi. Servers splash fine wines into glasses and mix cocktails behind a long, polished bar.

Or blast through hunger with the Volcano roll’s cucumber, crab, cream cheese, avocado, eel sauce, and spicy mayo ($12.95–$13.95).

The chefs at Sushi House Orlando not only craft impressive maki rolls that have won the eatery claim to several “best of” accolades, but also teach curious diners how to make their own at home during classes for all skill levels. Classic rolls present fillings of raw spicy tuna, unagi, and yellowtail, and more elaborate and playful bundles include the baked Graduation roll, which is a california roll wrapped in salmon and then topped with crab and scallops. The Happy Sumo roll reflects the same level of complexity, with three sauces draping over a tempura-fried roll of crab, tuna, and salmon.
The dining room maintains a lounge-like feel with crimson walls and gauzy black curtains, plus huge wall-mounted koi sculptures that arch over bartenders as they pour wines and sakes.
At Fujiyama Sushi, sushi chefs painstakingly craft specialty rolls while skilled teppanyaki cooks dazzle patrons, flipping and chopping meals before their eyes. The selection of sushi rolls ranges from basic California and sweet-potato rolls to the chef's specialty Irish roll—a combination of spicy salmon, cream cheese, and asparagus topped with slices of kiwi. For a hot meal, diners can roast their sushi rolls over Bic lighters or opt for dinner around a teppanyaki grill, where preternaturally coordinated cooks fling shrimp onto plates or directly into waiting mouths.
Modeled after admired urban cafés in the Far East, Bento Cafe whips up hulking portions of fresh, authentic, and multifarious pan-Asian fare in a casual, modern environment.
