Very nice decor. Great variety
Very nice decor. Great variety of cocktails and drinks. Sushi was good but nothing too special and on the pricey side.

The food is average, service
The food is average, service is all right but facility is dated and menu is way over priced. With so many local alternatives doing it right, I won't ba back to Amura anytime soon.

Whenever we visit Orlando,
Whenever we visit Orlando, we make it to Amura. It's fun and the food is terrific. The quality is outstanding. You may miss the jokes of a typical chain style Japanese steakhouse. And, the chef doesn't toss the food at you!

An excellent Sushi restaurant
I go there every time I'm in Orlando (twice last week). Excellent Sushi and other Japanese delicacies, a lot of choice in food and drinks (large selection of Sake), outstanding service. I'm a fan of Sushi and this place easily compares with any other Japanese restaurant I've been to.
The only slight negative comment I can think of is that the setting is not too typical Japanese and it is one big open space, so not really suited for a romantic evening. But actually it gives them flexibility to organize the tables efficiently for groups of all sizes, so depending on what you're looking for it is actually an advantage.

Great dinner date night. I
Great dinner date night. I was able to make a last minute reservation with no problem. The hostess greeted us with a smile and by name. The server was very knowledgeable and helped us with our sushi selection he also recommended a wine to go with our dinner, which we of course had to try.

Good sushi but smoky room
The sushi included some unique and tasty items as well as the standard varieties. Miso soup and ginger salad seemed pretty standard. The gyoza were good. A neighboring table had some sort of hot rock thing that filled the place with smoke at one point. Ventilation could be better. If more than one table had ordered that dish the environment would have been to smoky to remain inside.

Worth the Money
Nice Place and Good Food. Just a little bit expensive, 100$ bill for a couple, without wine and eating sushi & sashimi. But it is ok! I will come back!

Great Experience - treat yourself, try something new. My wife and I shared 4 sushi rolls and every one of them was great!

Language barrier our server
Language barrier our server was very hard to understand. Our salad entree was good; however chicken was dry. I prefer the location in Lake Mary. Company was better than food, visited with old friend. Wine was pretty good

Great sushi and service!
I consider myself a sushi snob and this was amazing. The server also was fabulous! Atmosphere wasn't posh or trendy but it allude up in tastiness!
5/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent as Always
Amura has been one of our favorite restaurants for 15 years! We drive from Clermont; and, it is well worth the drive. The best sushi in all of Orlando!

We've been a fan of Amura's
We've been a fan of Amura's downtown for lunch for many years. This was our first experience at this location and we were there for an early dinner. Beautiful decor. Our server was new and a bit inexperienced; lacked knowledge of menu items but he was very attentive. Food was very good.

This is the second time I have been here. The sushi is good and the waiter knowledgeable.

Amazing Sushi!!!! Would go
Amazing Sushi!!!! Would go back again and again! Wish I had one in my area.
6/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am definitely going back! It's a little on the pricey side but it's worth it.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent experience -- as always.
I have now been to the Amura in Doctor Phillips twice and Amura overall many times. I always enjoy the service, and the specials are always interesting. They have a large menu, and can accommodate nearly any picky eater.

Excellent selection of Japanese Foo
Visiting from Chicago, I was recommended this restaurant by a local. It was spot on: great selection of sushi/sashimi; good non-sushi-type Japanese food if you don't like sushi/sashimi.
Service was outstanding: perfectly timed drops; friendly staff; nice recommendations.
Considering it's in an area with a lot of other good restaurants, they are obviously trying hard to be the first choice.
This is now my second time (bringing the family this time). The experience was tremendous.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the best Sushi in Orlando by far! My wife and I go to this establishment at least twice a month, and Amura always delivers! Great food, excellent service, and outstanding atmosphere!
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was probably my 10th visit after I discovered this restaurant, it has such a vibrant atmosphere. As you walk in the host stuff always greets you with a smile and on my second or third visit the host recognized me and as he sat me and pulled the chair out for my wife, he said "welcome back, it's good seeing you two, I hope you enjoy your dinner again! He introduced himself and told us if we needed anything he would be in the front". That was really nice! The service has always been great and even though this is a Japanese restaurant, they have amazing steaks for very reasonable prices. My favorite spot now!

My husband and I went here for our anniversary. We are big Sushi eaters and we both love Japanese food. We were impressed by the seating options available. We order sushi as an appetizer and was impressed with the presentation and how fresh it tasted. While looking around the restaurant I noticed its a great place to meet friends, family, have a first date, anniversary dinner, or even a girls night. We can't wait to go back.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our party was warmly greeted and seated immediately. Our server was very attentive as our beverage glasses never emptied and empty plates were removed immediately. The teppan style food was good but lacked depth of flavor (even with the provided sauces.) I would definitely recommend Amura to the local community as a great weeknight gem for a simple and quick Japanese meal.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We we here for my Birthday dinner. We all enjoyed the sushi
& very fresh.
Only real complaint is that they need to make sure they keep front doors closed. Smoking area outside and cigar shop
Next door. A few times smoke reached us deep inside the resturant.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I enjoied the very good experience with artisan rolls of great sushi and exotic tastes of different sake's. A great restaurant that brings the style and tradition of the east to you. With great service and affordable price, I recommend this restaurant to everyone. It's hard to tell when it's going to be busy so make sure to make a reservation.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous for lunch
Toon was our server and she was very pleasant and thorough. Food, as always, amazing. Bubba Roll is insane. Easy to ave a good conversation.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
When we want Japanese food we go to Amura. The sushi is beautifully prepared and the entres are also nicely presented. They all taste good too. We have dined there over 20 times and are guests always come away from the experience very pleased. Their Happy Hour also provides some outstanding choices.

Everything was very fresh and the service was fantastic

Great family dinner spot
We go here often with our family and grand kids. The food is fresh and good and the kids are entertained so they don't get bored.

Dined in the hibachi area; fantastic meal. Would recommend to anyone.

As always, we had a wonderful sushi dinner! Every roll was great! A must visit when in Orlando!

Another great dinner
One of my favorite restaurants. The sushi is reliably excellent, and this time went early enough to enjoy some Happy Hour sushi specials (there was no skimping despite the discount; the happy hour rolls were definitely full size). The only unusual thing was there were different spice levels between the spicy tuna in different rolls; first time it happened in 7yrs going; still great taste and perhaps a little welcome relief as at least 3 rolls had spicy tuna in them.

Great for family and value
We love this restaurant. The food is fresh and service great. The kids love the entertaining chiefs.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
We selected this restaurant because it was a Japanese Steak House and I was told it was rated #1 in Florida. It lived up to that top position. First, we arrived early and got the low-priced early bird special. Second, the chef was great cooking right to order. Third, the food selection and taste were great! Our party of 5 even had to bring leftovers back with us. I highly recommend this place for any occasion!
