Wasn’t the Amura I expected- the space is extremely tight and small. Staff seems to be running like a chicken with out a head

We were going to a show at the performing arts center and met as a group before hand. Everything was great. And we got to the show in plenty of time. The food is just awesome!

Pre-concert meal near downtown venue. No wait on our table. Pleasant staff. Waiter was attentive. Enjoyed both appetizers and both “pressed /sushi rolls.

Terrible disappointment. Understaffed and sushi took over one hour for people. We were advised by waiter to get hot food because we were waiting so long as were others so we ordered Udon and it was awful. Dirty spoons with lipstick all them, greasy tempura for Udon and appetizer of Calamari was just as greasy. The worst meal ever at an Open Table restaurant! Completely ripped off for eighty dollars and not one reduction in price offered. Restaurant was full of mad people. Oh and there is no
Liquor license here but they have quarter glasses
of wine. There is NOTHING good to say.

Reservation was @ 6:15, got seated right away, ordered by 6:30, told waiter we were going to a play. We ordered a sushi dinner (12 pieces nigiri) & 1 roll. Food took a long time - waiter was good, but was nerve wracking. Finally got food about 7:15, giving us about 15 min to eat!
The restaurant was only half full, had 3 sushi chefs working. They take orders to go. We think that was the issue, they made dine-in patrons wait, due to to-go orders. Bad plan.

I would not go again if we have time constraints. Otherwise, food & service was good.

Even though it was a very busy Saturday night, we were seated quickly. We were in and out in about an hour, which was great because we had a Broadway show to see. Our server was polite and did his job well. I would have liked a drink menu so that I could see that the house Chardonnay I ordered was $9/glass, which was a bit of a surprise, but other than that, everything was perfect. Sushi was delicious as usual!

This is by far the best Japanese restaurant we have found in Orlando. The sushi is always fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The entire menu is outstanding. They are always adding great, unique specials and the main dishes are excellent. We also love all of the noodle bowls. The service is wonderful, they are very attentive, helpful and they are very knowledgeable about the menu. Overall it is a wonderful place and I highly recommend it!

Glad we made a reservation because it was crazy busy ( concert in near by venue). Our server was attentive and mentioned there might be a wait for our food. It was not really that long a wait.
Mexican roll was delicious crunchy tempura shrimp and my husband enjoyed his mackerel nigiri.
We were in and out in about an hour and 15 minutes

When Amura downtown changed ownership, I was not sure how I would like the new owners. I am really pleased. They have stepped up the menu, and the sushi is more imaginative and really delicious. We dine there every couple of months, before heading to the theatre. They accommodate our schedule and always make us feel welcome.

I’ve eaten a lot of sushi all over the US and must admit that Amura is in my top 3 now. Excellent variety of rolls, unique sashimi/fish selections and the staff is extremely knowledgeable about sushi and their menu in general. Also, they have a wide variety of sakes and Japanese beers. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place!

My only complaint was the restaurant kept my credit card and it was the manager who took the bill. I did not notice until the next morning and of course they were closed so I had to cancel my card. They had my contact info via Open Table but made no attempt to contact me.

My wife and I went to Amura for dinner. We got a bottle of Sake, and there was way too much! A bottle would probably suit 4-5 people, so this would be great for groups. We both got the lobster bisque (which was great) and ordered off the Sushi menu which was plenty of food. Let me cut to the gist and tell you what you need to order: Volcano rolls. WOW! Those rolls are fantastic. I ordered some other sushi which was also good but the volcano rolls blew me away.
