With a splash of oil, the teppanyaki grill erupts into an orange blaze. Not far off, chefs slice and roll fresh seafood at the sushi bar. Each of Bayridge Sushi's three locations immerses guests in the Japanese dining experience, complemented by stylish, modern interiors with touches such as lantern-like lighting, flat-screen televisions, and chopsticks hand-carved by master carpenters. In addition to its array of sushi and Japanese dishes, the menu also offers Japanese beers Sapporo and Asahi.
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.

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.
