Best sushi in Orlando?

I'll be in Orlando for business tomorrow through Thursday and I'm looking for a great sushi place. I did a search and it's hard to wade through all the different responses for different areas in Florida, but Zen seemed to come up a couple times.

Can anyone suggest the best sushi in Orlando? Thanks.

  1. Dragonfly right on Sand Lake Rd is the best... it's new to Orlando.. but has been in Gainesville for 10 years.. the Sashimi is amazing..

    www.dragonflysushi.com I heard they are having a Grand Opening party on the 2nd of Sept.. they are open though. I just went and it was awesome..

    1. Hanamaizuki for high end, cloth napkins and real chopsticks

      Orlando Sushi House for mid cloth napkins and disposable chopsticks

      Sushiology for low end. paper napkins, disposable chopsticks, and clean your own table. (This one's my fave)

      6400 International Dr, Orlando, FL 32819

      Sushi House
      1173 Edgewood Ave S, Jacksonville, FL 32205

      1. My faves are Amura on Sand Lake or Wa. Bikkuri for a great deal and good quality too. Search around, I think this question has been asked 20-gabillion times already.

        1. Wa is totally great.

          Also Mikado sushi, the hunters creek location, in the villages of hunters creek.

          1. Do you like Japanese sushi or Americanized sushi? Orlando has many of the latter, very few of the former. Orlando is primarily a micky-mouse magic gator with butterscotch roll kind of place, if you catch my drift.

                Sushi Tomi is very basic Japanese sushi. A nice find in Orlando

              2. I still say Mikado - the hunters creek location.

                but you know what we don't have in Orlando is the conveyor belt sushi. That would be kind of fun.

                1. i've heard a lot of great things about mikado in the hunter's creek plaza, gotta go visit them soon!

                  i usually like shin sushi, on orange avenue. they placed best sushi in the orlando sentinel's foodies awards this year i believe

                  here is my review with pics from my last visit at shin sushi

                    I've been meaning to get to shin sushi.

                    We went to Mikado - hunters creek Friday night. I would suggest before the dinner rush on busy nights though, sit up at the bar, the head sushi guy there is awesome.
