The customer service was great. But the fish just wasn't fresh. I expect high grade Tuna when eating Sushi. I really wanted it to be good but it was just loose and awkward.

Finding choice Sushi in this immediate area is like looking for a Lobster in Lake Dora. This Sushi Restaurant has been in the area for years and still retains Top Status in this viewers estimation. Why?...the Menu is Varied, Fresh, Larger Portions and your meal Artfully Displayed. They are closed Sundays and Mondays so, don't waste the trip driving over... More

My husband and I ate here for dinner. It was excellent! Sushi was one of the best I've had. Chef's are extremely knowledgeable. They were even able to substitute for my shellfish allergy. Cannot wait to return here!

Just had a quick lunch at Lake Dora Sushi, more than I could eat for lunch had to bring it home. $9.00 and I have leftovers for tonight or tomorrow. I loved the presentation of the sushi, neat little serving boat.

There are only a few Sushi Restaurants you can 'Trust' in this area, as it's all about Talent, Temperature, and Freshness when you're eating raw fish. We've never 'gone wrong' with these folks and we have been patronizing them since they originally opened in Downtown, Mount Dora close to 10 years ago. Tonight we had the Chicken Tempura and "Regular... More

Not too many places you can get three sushi rolls for $9.00 for lunch. The ladies there are quick to take care of you and the sushi is authentic and delicious.

It was Friday at Lunch, the place was packed, we met our two daughters here for lunch and sat at the sushi bar. We placed our orders, separate checks. Our daughters appetizers arrive, ours did not (we order the same thing). Our daughters received their sushi, we waited on our salad and soup. The owner graciously offered us some sushi... More

They have a nice variety of sushi which is what we go there for. Their rolls are nicely compacted so they don't fall apart when picked up. Nice daily specials. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating . They are able to answer all our questions taking their time to be detailed. My favorite roll to eat here is... More

Don't judge a book by its cover! Doesn't look like much from the street but step inside to enjoy fresh original sushi combinations that will treat your palate. Originally I thought I would have to travel to Orlando to get great sushi but the Lake Dora Sushi & Sake delivered. I may not be a Sushi expert by most standards... More
