    As always, Sushi Pop never fails to please! Sushi is always uber fresh and the rolls are a far cry from you standard sushi resto. So much flavor! Alex behind the bar is super attentive and creative with the cocktails (no liquor so cocktails are wine based but yummy nonetheless). Matt, the manager, continuously makes the rounds, ensuring that each guest is happy. The wait staff are very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the menu items and specials. I cannot say enough about it! It's our favorite resto in all of Orlando!!

    We've been trying to go to Sushi Pop for weeks now. Friday was the first time they had last minute reservations that would work for us. It was worth the wait. They have a large sake menu and some interesting cocktails -- I had a "Hit the Floor" which is made with a rice wine and has some smoky sweet flavors -- really unique and totally sippable. For dinner, we shared three sushi rolls -- one that was made with Crab and was pretty good (very similar to the rolls you can get at most sushi places), but the other two were ones we've never had before. And they were delicious! The server was able to explain the menu with ease and ensured a good time. Last note, it is a bit pricey (to us) so we will only return for special occassions.

    The best sushi restaurant in Oviedo, and possibly Orlando. The service is fast and friendly. The ambiance is lovely, perfect for going out on a date or with friends. The TVs play either anime or movies, such as Jiro Dreams of Sushi. I've never loved a restaurant's music more than here. I would honestly come just for the music. However, the best part is the food- as it should be. The sushi is fresh, innovative, and most importantly, delicious. I have yet to be disappointed in the slightest by Sushi POP.

    In actuality you feel like you're ina big metropolitan city when you step inside. Freshest fish ever. There are a few things for those that prefer everything cooked. Always something new & special to try. Chef is amazing and his staff always gets it right. Make sure you try Sushi Pop. If you're not near Oviedo, it's well worth your drive!

    A few girlfriends and I wanted something different outside of the traditional chain of restaurants so we decided to make resv at Sushi Pop. We ordered tacos which was excellent, rock shrimp and KFC was delicious, ceviche, shrimp and veggie rolls were superb (especially ceviche roll)! Best sushi spot in orlando by far!

    Every food item we had was very tasty, the Hot Mess roll was my favorite. Our evening was somewhat ruined with really bad service. Everything took forever from getting orders taken, to drinks to each course & paying. We skipped a second round of drinks fearing how long it would take before arriving. My niece's kids order was forgotten and when they "rushed" to get it out it was still slow & could barely be called a kid's portion. Overall I felt the whole meal was over-priced. There were times the kitchen stood around while tickets waited. Honestly they have great sushi but so do several other spots and Pop was not worth the drive all the way to Oviedo. This was probably a one and done.

    Sushi Pop is one of the best, if not THE best Sushi restaurants in Orlando. The food is amazingly fresh and the rolls are loaded with layers of flavor not usually found at other restaurants. I'm convince now that so many other places are just mailing it in with uninspiring food. A Roll as ubiquitous as the Spicy Tuna Roll is anything but Ubiquitous at Sushi Pop. Thank you Sushi Pop.

    Whenever I want awesome sushi in Orlando, I come here. Your sushi=impeccable. Your service=meh. The last time I went, our waitress visited the table maybe 3 times. Once to get the order, two to bring back the food and three to get the checks. She also took forever processing the checks and it wasn't even busy. But I digress, the food is exceptional. I just wish service was more on their feet.

Try the garlic and pepper edamame for sure! Freshest sushi and sashimi in town!!! Like stepping into NYC when you walk in the door in this small strip mall. Cheers!

    Sushi Pop has some of the best sushi, if not THE best, in Central Florida. I love the atmosphere. I first took my wife here for valentines day a few years back and it been a favorite of ours since. The ceviche role is absolutely amazing. I'd recommend the roll unless you stay away from spicy food.

    My wife and I went here for a date night. We love sushi and this place had some very good sushi rolls (ceviche roll was awesome). The decor was trendy, the waitress was friendly, and it wasn't extremely busy at 6:30pm (we made reservations). The prices are a little higher than the norm, so this isn't somewhere we could go often, but it's great for a special occasion. My only complaint was that 4 out of 5 of their desserts had nuts in them, which I'm allergic to. The dessert we ordered was something like an apple-cinnamon turnover with ginger ice cream, which was pretty good. Overall, a very good experience!

    My first impression unfortunately is a lasting impression. Although I made my reservation through OpenTable I had to wait at least 20 min from an on time arrival to be seated. I have not had this experience with any other restaurant to date. While the delay was acknowledged it would be nice if they put their money where their mouth is by offering free beverages or a discounted dinner. The parking is pretty tricky in that there really is not enough parking.

    We usually stick to the specials (a must) and several other items we always enjoy. This time, however, we tried things we never order, and, as we have come to expect from Sushi Pop, the quality, innovativeness and unusual combination of flavors were excellent. We have never been disappointed in anything we have tried. Not to be left out is that the bar staff was once again spot on with beer and wine recommendations and you should seriously consider trying any of the new cocktails they come up with. The "gobstopper" (with ice ball of watermelon and rhubarb!!!!) will be a new fav going forward.

    We live in Oviedo and have been going to Sushi Pop every two or three months since they opened. After eating there this weekend, my husband and I both commented on how we've never had a disappointing meal at this restaurant. Of course, like any good restaurant, the menu changes and we've certainly tried things that we liked better than others but time and time again our experience has been positive. The food, drinks and service are always good. You need a reservation to get in on a Friday or Saturday night with good reason. We happen to live close which is great but I suspect even if we didn't, we'd gladly make the trip.
