Squash Blossoms, Octopus & More
Had another perfect meal at Sushi Pop. Octopus Prime to start- delicious! My 10-year-old is now a huge fan. Also truffle salt edamame - we can't miss that. Heard squash blossoms were the special. They were so incredibly delicious, we ordered a second order after we finished the first. Also Mofo roll- good, but not my preference for a sushi roll. And Red Hots- hands-down my favorite sushi roll in Central Florida. My friend had three little pigs- pork three ways. I'm not an enormous pork fan, but everything was very tasty. My kids think their water is better than any restaurant around. In sum, unforgettable and exquisite food. Squash blossoms are only here another week or two!

Try it & you'll see why :-)

Sushi Pop Rocks!
Sushi Pop has the best sushi in Orlando. Excellent quality, fantastic chef's, reasonably priced, and a cool atomosphere make Sushi Pop one of our favorites!

Sushi with a twist
Sushi Pop is a non conventional approach to the sushi restaurant. While there are some classics on the menu along with "hot tastings" and sashimi, it remains a sushi dining experience on their terms. Edamame with a variety of preparation choices is one of my favorites. Truffle salt all the way. I had the wings or KFC. A must try if you like a little heat. Split the Volcano roll with real crab and the Hot Mess roll. The latter is a signature concoction for those who want to be adventurous but not a stickler for traditional sushi. Well worth it. Ended with the five spice apple fritters. My girlfriend had the PMS, a clever amalgam of chocolate cake with a warm chocolate filling accompanied by vanilla ice cream and a peanut butter powder.

Food choices were unique.
Food choices were unique. Our server had great recommendations. Was looking forward to the chefs creme brûlée, unfortunately it's no longer a staple on the menu. All in all a great evening.

Worth the Drive...
Good food and not just Sushi which worked out well for our group. had several great dishes and several good dishes but it was all good. We drove a half hour from the airport area to get to the location.

It keeps getting better
Sushi POP can't go wrong. We've been back again and again and the rolls are amazing every time. We love the anaconda roll and the sugi sugi roll. But every roll we've ever tried here is fantastic. The service is great. The atmosphere is lively and fun, but quiet just enough to have a conversation. We love this place and every sushi fan must come here at least once to see what it's all about!
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Go away this is my place! If you don't get the atmosphere, you shame us all who truly love this place!
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We are never disappointed
We are never disappointed with the food. The service is attentive, but not intrusive. Even when we order more sushi in the middle of a meal the wait is never long.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Home run again
Love love love Sushi Pop!
Sunday Pho is to die for too. Always try the specials is the best advice!
Best sushi anywhere not just Orlando.

One of a Kind
Tonight's fare included the deliciously sweet and spicy KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) wings, a surf and turf tartar, and the 3.0 Little Pigs (pork done three ways). Following was a medley of fantastic sushi and drinks, some recommended by the knowledgeable and friendly staff and manager. For dessert we had the creme brulet (a citrus variety) while others got the liquid nitrogen-powered sorbet (made table side with dramatic flair). And, beyond all of the amazing food and drink, the prices are not exorbitant and, in fact, keep relatively in line with most other sushi places. However no other sushi place can match the imagination of Sushi POP's chefs or the quirky style of its staff. Make a reservation, you will not be disappointed!
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My absolute favorite sushi restaurant! The food is amazing and service is great!
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM

6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Matthew & Andrea make it happen!!
This past trip to Sushi POP was with a friend who currently lives in Dubai. She waits a whole year to come experience the freshest, most innovative sushi in the world (in my opinion!). Our experience was perfect, as expected! Andrea and Matthew ALWAYS steer us in the right direction both with the menu and beverage selections. We are completely addicted to Sushi POP as is our friend from across the globe!
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have become somewhat of a Sushi Pop junkie. I need my fix. I am sure that I have informed every family member and friend that if they want the best sushi in the Orlando area then they better head to this location. It is the freshest sushi I've had. The location is small, so make sure to make a reservation if you want to get a seat on the weekend.
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love Sushi Pop
Always a great meal, service was terrific, so much so we even complimented the server to the manager. Love the Hot Mess, coconut shrimp and the Sugi Sugi rolls
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I brought along a party of 7 people for dinner. I had been telling them that Sushi Pop was the best sushi in Orlando. They all agreed. I know they will be returning be aide the food and service is always great here.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great sushi .. out of the way place
If you don't look towards the windows, you could be in NYC in this tiny modern space with great food that came out surprisingly quickly. But it is tucked away in a nondescript strip of businesses in Oviedo. They told me they are expanding into the next space which would be good for those diners who were turned away because of no reservations. Everything we had was very good -- especially the dessert and the pork taco appetizers!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've introduced a number of friends and out of towners to Sushi Pop, our favorite restaurant. The food is always exceptional! The servers are great. Just a neat place.
MUST HAVE - Low Rider!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Definitely making the trip back!
Although Sushi Pop is not very close to where I live, I had to try it since everyone was recommending it. I was not disappointed! The Coconut Shrimp roll was my favorite, but I liked all the rolls we ordered! The edamame was really fresh and steamed perfectly. Best sushi I have had in the Central Florida area. The service was outstanding as well. I will definitely be back!
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic, creative and one
Fantastic, creative and one of the best sushi places ever.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Creative and well-executed and delicious with great service. Not sure what else could want in a restaurant. Every thing we tasted was interesting and just excellent. We will certainly be returning, probably to enjoy the Chef's tasting menu (pre-order only).
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Upon entering Sushi Pop, you find yourself in an environment that matrches any popular dining scene in Manhattan, Frisco or LA. The personal touches that every one of the wait staff as well as the GM places upon each customer is head and shoulders above any restaurant I've ever been to. The food is fantastic and by far the freshest sushi, sashimi and nigiri you will ever have. There are specials each week that are amazing and on Sunday's, the staple of the day is Mama's Pho, an amazing arromatic dish that I'm quite sure will cure a common cold! Do something special for yourself and make an evening at Sushi Pop. It will not disappoint!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love love love this place!!
Love love love this place!! Definitely the best sushi I have had paired with amazing service and a great selection of Sake!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Five stars all the way!
This restaurant if fine dining without the suit and dress!
The sushi was so fresh and the appetizers were to die for.
The general manager Matt was so helpful with all of our selections. The staff is so friendly.
I can't say enough about sushi pop! Just the best!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chau, Alex, Matt, Christina & Sufian always make you feel welcome and always introduce the specials with a genuine passion. It is enjoyable to see a team work so well together and truly enjoy where they work. Thank you Chau for chosing our great community.

Best sushi in Orlando
I know, I know, Sushi Pop isn't even in Orlando, but believe me, it's worth the drive to Oviedo. The food is fresh, combinations are inventive and inspired. A far, far cry from the same old sushi menu you'll see at any other place in town. The rolls are delicious, but the simple nigiri and sashimi is flawless - true test of a great sushi restaurant. Don't miss the It's No Yolk appetizer and the PMS dessert!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service at Sushi Pop are excellent. We ordered a special appetizer, a tuna sashimi. It melted in your mouth and left a burst of Citris flavor to finish. We bought three of their tools, they were all very good. We particularly liked the Mofo with perfectly prepared pork belly. For dessert, we had the PMS. This is a very beautifully presented dessert of chocolate and peanut butter. I highly recommend Sushi Pop if you haven't tried it,
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of our favorite
This is one of our favorite spots to meet with our friends for dinner when in the mood for sushi. The staff was very friendly, attentive and helpful. We were discussing menu options and one of the staff overheard us ask a question. He stopped and promptly answered it for us which was great. We didn't have to ask for our drinks to be refilled and the timing of the food was spot on. Some places we've gone are so loud that you can't hear each other talk and then others its so quiet, you almost feel self conscious speaking because you're sharing with the entire restaurant - just like Goldilocks, this place is 'just right'.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
You get what you pay for. At Sushi Pop, you get amazing fresh food for prices not too much higher than other sushi restaurants. This random find has become a gem that I can bring my friends and family to. Expect your taste buds to be wowed every dish. Make sure you try the Peanut Butter Sorbet, which is made at your table side with liquid nitrogen. I never cease to be amazed every time I order that delicious dessert!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Food & Service,
Excellent Food & Service, with unique flavors. Deserts are special as well.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
At the advice of other reviews, I placed reservations a day in advance. Shortly after opening the place was packed and a small line formed outside.
The ambiance of the restaurant is vibrant and modern. I loved it since both attributes appealed to my senses. Lots of mood lighting and modern design. AnimeIts definitely not your traditional Japanese style that so many restaurants struggle to pull off. Sushi Pop takes it in a different direction and it works.
Our waitor was attentive. I asked for his suggestion on a roll to try. He recommended the cilantro roll. It was by far the best sushi roll I have ever had in my life.
My only complaint is that the posted menu online wasn't updated.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best in town
I have finally found a great sushi place!!!
We eat there at least once a week
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you need a great sushi restaurant!!! This is for you!!! The ambiance is a plus also.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must do before you die!!!
My experience was absolutely wonderful. I had a friend recommend the place and it certainly did not disappoint. The atmosphere is so relaxed, but the food is so high class. They have such a fusion of the modern person wanting an amazing meal. It is on the slightly expensive side, but remember... You get what you pay for! Their quality of product has such a high tag to it. I've never had such fresh fish!!! You get amazing food, great service, and a fun atmosphere.... Why go anywhere else?
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I try to go to sushi pop every Friday with different friends and have never once Ben disappointed! Food is great!!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have ate here many times, we love the sushi bar. The chefs are all friendly and will answer any questions you have. Food is great and don't be shy to try new food.

Best Sushi near Orlando
Best Sushi experience in the Orlando area for sure. Absolute perfect dishes. Beautiful plating, with highest quality seafood. Service is very good and the atmosphere is fun. Great for families with kids or couples on a date. Locals know about SushiPop here in Oviedo and they get pretty busy, so you should make reservations.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing as always!
Another amazing experience at Sushi Pop! Food was to die for, and the service was impeccable!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun Fun Fun
Another strip mall surprise! This is a fun and trendy neighborhood gem that is perfect for getting together with friends. That staff is fun and energetic. Presentation is unique and the ambience makes you forget you are in a strip mall. The sushi is fresh, good and unique.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Original and creative sushi
Sushi Pops claim to fame is sushi presented and prepared with creative and gustatory elements. Disparate tastes tickle the palate. Presentations are a visual holiday.

SUSHI POP!-Oviedo gem
This was the spot picked for a girls night out celebration. Sake based cocktails were delicious and there was a decent wine list as well. The four of us ate "Tapas style", ordering 5 different rolls, including the chef's special that night. Every single bite was exquisite. We finished up with the PMS dessert-Peanut Butter and chocolate molten lava cake with salted caramel ice cream on the side. YUM!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best sushi in orlando area by far. The staff is always so great. It's our favorite place to dine.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Sushi pop has the best sushi I've tried in Orlando. You can taste just how fresh the fish is and it practically melts in your mouth. They also have a great variety and mix of flavors. The menu seems a bit pricey (about $14 per roll or appetizer) but it's well worth it.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best in town
The food, service and manager are amazing!!!!
I eat here at least once a week

Date Night Special
This is a favorite date night spot for me and the hubby to enjoy real food.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place for sushi and in Oviedo (of all places)!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best in Orlando!
Absolutely the best sushi in Orlando. Always super fresh ingredients. Not just the fish, but everything.
The service is fabulous and fun. And save room for dessert! Unusual for a sushi restaurant. Well worth it
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
While this wasn't my first time here....it always been good. Presentation is fabulous! I think though, they have limited their menu. I think that they used to offer more variety. I checked the menu before we went there...and none of the items were on the current menu. It was a disappointment. It's a little on the pricey side! we ate at Nagoya last week...ordered about the same amount of food...actually a little more...and it was much less...and very good!
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I were looking for a good date night restaurant, and saw Sushi Pop online as an option. We aren't the biggest sushi fans but thought we would try it. It was great! We had no idea ow great sushi was. The staff was friendly and knowledgable and eager to help with our selections. We will definatly go back!
