    Consistently delicious and always something new. Very tasty cocktails (especially considering their alcohol license is beer & wine only) using unique & imported ingredients. 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.

    From the outside, you're not very sure of what you're about to walk in to (it's in a strip mall), then you walk through the door and it transforms into a totally cool & hip restaurant! The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The food.....AMAZING!! We have found our new go to restaurant for special occasions.

    This place has terrific sushi and a great atmosphere. Only issue was that service was slow the night we were there. It was not that busy, but it seemed to take a long time for us to get our order. This was disappointed as the place is not inexpensive.

    This place is a culinary gem. Every dish makes your senses explode. Do not forget to save room for dessert. The chef's really know what they're doing. The manager is friendly and welcoming and knows just about everything about food and wine. You cannot stump him. The wait staff is phenomenal. The combination makes it one of the best restaurants in the country.

    I have had a hard time finding unique and amazing sushi in Orlando. This place is creative and the food is so amazing. I've never had pork belly in a sushi roll before. Now I have. We had 5 rolls, an order of white tuna nigiri, 4 beers and dessert for under $100. That is really great.

    The decor was fun and vibrant. The staff was knowledgable and attentive. My food came at same time as appetizer. The appetizers were great in theory but did not taste as good as they sounded. I have had way better sushi around Orlando. The desserts were inventive but did not offer a variety enough for people who don't like peanut butter. Unfortunately the look of a restaurant is not enought to bring me back.

    I've been to SushiPop several times, and as a person allergic to gluten, it's one of the only sushi restaurants at which I feel completely safe eating. Just tell them your dietary needs, and they will adjust any roll/dish that you'd like to accommodate you. They are also great about letting you know which rolls and dishes won't work as a gluten free option. The food is fantastic every time, as is the service. Love this place.

    Fun place with lively atmosphere and extremely knowledgeable wait staff. Fresh sashimi was outstanding (pricy too), dessert was original. However, other sushi restaurants offer more creative, fuller, "gotta have it" rolls. Next time I will pay more for a sashimi-based meal, but believe that will bring the overall experience up a notch.
