Poor Choice - Sorry – Service here is terrible! Supposedly they were having a "crazy night" but for a Saturday, it didn't seem nearly as packed as the other restaurants nearby. We waited over 30 minutes for our drinks (water, after all, takes time to pour) and recieved them, as well as our appetizer, near seconds before our food arrived. That being said, the food itself was nothing special. My roll had so much cream cheese in it, I couldn't taste anything else. Their Miso Soup was on par with what I buy in packets from the grocery store and we never got a refill on the water. I liked this place better when you could sit on the floor; now it reminds me too much of Denny's with rows of orange booth seating. What happened to the experience? I will never go back.
Fresh sushi in a casual environment – The rolls are probably some of the best in Orlando, but the service is slow on a busy night. Be sure to try the crunch tuna roll for a different kick.
Yummy Rolls!! – Shiki has the best rolls I've ever had! They have a Spicy Conch roll and this roll with raw scallops and scallions that are absolutely exquisite. Their Sting and Popeye rolls are really good too, I like Popeye because it has kimchee sauce and mussels in it and Sting roll has jellyfish - yum! They also have perfect miso soup and I like their hijiki, although Fuji has the best hijiki. This place is AWESOME, you NEED to go there for the ultimate roll experience!
Another overrrated Park Ave. place – The sushi was OK, but not quite as good as Fuji or Seito. The tea was lukewarm, barely brewed stuff with loose leaves floating through it.
The service wasn't great either. Although the place was very nearly deserted, the waitress appeared to feel she had better things to do than be bothered with us. And, the table wasn't even clean.
