good sushi but way too many rolls with cream cheese. Went here to try something new and was not disappointed. The fish is fresh and good but not the best I have had. Talked to the owner a bit and he was very nice. I just could not get over all fo the sushi rolls with cream cheese. I realize what kind of customers they get there but come on.
Great sushi and sashimi. There are two kinds of people who go to sushi bars in Orlando: those who love the fish, and those who love nigiri (sushi rolls). While Yae Sushi has good rolls, it's the quality of the fish that puts it above other sushi bars. I've always had excellent sushi and sashimi there. Their wasabi is good too. Their sake selection is run-of-the-mill, though. Try the jellyfish salad! Frequently packed, reservations are a necessity on the weekends, and a good idea the rest of the time. The place is small, the bar is tiny. Get a booth if you want any privacy, but be warned: the authentic looking ones on the left are pretty uncomfortable if you sit too long. You'll either love or hate the ambience. It's certainly distinctive.
One of Orlando's most original sushi restaurants!. I have been going to Yae Sushi on a regular basis for around 4 years now, and I am a big fan. The food is outstanding and very unique. Most sushi restaurants serve you giant rolls of rice loaded so big, they're impossible to eat in one mouthful. Yae has what I consider more traditional sized rolls that are perfect! The selection is amazing....and the creations on the menu are like no other. I feel that the price is average. The only rolls that come in 4s are the ones with shrimp....the rest are mostly all 8. What is so impressive is how unique the sushi is. I can go to any other sushi restaurant in Orlando and they are all pretty similar, but none are like Yae. I also feel that Yae has a big following of people like me who are "regulars". I really don't understand those who don't like Yae....maybe those are just sushi yuppies who don't know good sushi if it nailed them on the head. My only wish is that they open for lunch again like they used to be. I am self-employed and LOVE a good sushi lunch in the middle of the day!!
What a waste!!!!!. I truly love sushi and appreciate good rolls. The first thing that turned me off was I was greeted properly. The waitress was not polite or friendly at all. I started to walk out but I figured I'd give the food a try. I wish I had gone with my gut. The food was horrible. I got the space shuttle roll (shrimp tempura) and the JB roll (smoked salmon). I asked for no cream cheese (I got cream cheese). The salmon wasnt smoked and the roll was small. Basically, I wasted my time, my gas and my money. If you are a true sushi fan, avoid this place.
I love Yae Sushi. I've been frequenting this restaurant for the past 11 years and i have a great time whenever i go. Sometimes on a romantic dates with friends or at the sushi bar with my mom. Most night you'll find the owner Tiger behind the sushi bar who always a big hello and smile for whomever comes in the door. If you sit at the sushi bar he'll have you try things for fun. I've seen him do this with other people when i'm not at the sushi bar.
Very disappointed. I read the reviews on this site and was so excited to go, and I was so disappointed when I left. The place has 2 fish tanks in the middle with cords everywhere and the sushi was less than desirable. I have eaten sushi and many places in many states and this was one of the worst. There were alot of rolls, but they had nothing in them, not more than one fish per roll. The rolls were small and I made my own creation and it was $9.50 and the special rolls on the menu were only 4 pieces. Would not recommend.
Extensive menu of fresh fish served in an ultra-hip environment..
Cool and inviting, with an unassuming dining room, fish tanks on the tables and sushi chefs wearing baseball caps.
An extensive five-page menu crammed full of traditional and unusual sushi, sashimi and rolls. Ingredients are impeccably fresh and range from avocado and asparagus to barbecued eel, conch, octopus, sea urchin, squid and just about every other finned or shelled aquatic creature in between. Sushi can be purchased a la carte or in dinner combinations. Patrons can also choose from an assortment of soups, tempuras and teriyaki dinners, featuring beef, pork, chicken, tofu and, of course, fish.
