    The service was excellent, the table was too small and things were falling. It was a little uncomfortable to eat. We had a good view of Disney Fireworks even with the rain and cloudy night. The server was very attentive and courteous. The food was excellent, every plate that we order it was delicious and tasty.

    Our favorite restaurant in Orlando! The food, service and view are out of this world! Always get the same things when we go……bam buns with beef, seafood noodles with shrimp, shrimp skewers, oki roll and the roll with tenderloin on top!

    The restaurant is very nice. The rooftop deck is a great place to hang out before or after the meal. Everyone in our party of 11 thoroughly enjoyed all of the food and we probably tried most of the items on the menu. The service was absolutely exceptional!

    Our server was fantastic but unfortunately the food was awful. The chicken Yakatori was inedible and I've never seen tempura shrimp like the dish I was served, which was breaded with cornmeal and not tempura.
