Summary

Parts of the menu are so inventive and spot-on that you can forgive the massive misses, like the puzzling cream cheese– stuffed “krab” Rangoon cigars. The outdoor terrace upstairs has what might be the best view of the new Disney Springs lagoon, rising above the sometimes noisy crowd below. Look for the “unmarked” door on the side of the building to enter the Forbidden Lounge (not really a secret, but Disney Springs isn’t on a spring, either) with its late-night menu until 2 a.m. If you’re in a hurry and just want a quick bite, the walk-up window outside and to the left of the entrance serves sushi, rice bowls, and other snacks. Prices range from $6 to $15, and outdoor seating is available.

Setting and Atmosphere

Ultra-hip version of a big-city club with Japanese wood-tone highlights. Japanese Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto has taken the Disney opportunity to open his first restaurant that expands beyond sushi and into a pan-Asian expedition, and in most cases he hits the mark. Quirky takes on Chinese, Japanese, and Korean dishes join a substantial sushi menu from the kitchen and upstairs sushi bar, where, yes, chef Morimoto will make frequent and sometimes unexpected appearances. Fishing baskets and steel beads form the 20-foot-long chandeliers, and a continuous white engineered-stone ribbon runs from the “secret” entrance to the Forbidden Lounge upstairs, creating the handrail, bar, and seating areas throughout the building and framing the glass-bottle lighting upstairs (a nod to the building’s fictional beginnings as a bottling company). There are anime cartoons and graphic photographs throughout, framing the multi-compartmentalized open kitchen.

House Specialties
