Location

Disney Springs in The Landing

Summary

Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto is famously hands-on with this restaurant, and it’s not uncommon to see him in the kitchen or behind the sushi counter. We think this is one of the top restaurants in Disney Springs. The food is higher quality and more expensive than most hometown Chinese restaurants. We think this isn’t what some guests expect, which may negatively affect the restaurant’s ratings. If you’re ordering the Peking duck for yourself and the waitstaff says it serves two, the proper response is “Challenge accepted.”

The outdoor terrace upstairs has what might be the best view of Disney Springs lagoon, rising above the sometimes noisy crowd below. If you’re in a hurry, the walk-up window outside and to the left of the entrance serves noodle bowls and other snacks. Prices range from $6 to $14, and outdoor seating is available.

Setting and Atmosphere

Orlando’s version of a big-city club, with Japanese wood-tone highlights. Morimoto Asia 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 the chef makes frequent appearances. Fishing baskets and steel beads form the 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 open kitchen.

House Specialties

Pork dim sum; 24-hour-marinated, house-carved Peking duck; orange chicken; Morimoto spare ribs; Korean buri bop; lo mein and ramen noodles; sushi rolls and sashimi.

Other Recommendations

Orange chicken made with local Florida oranges; poke salad with tuna, salmon, and Hamachi; kung pao chicken dumplings; and Gomoku fried rice, featuring a veritable menagerie of duck, chicken, pork, shrimp, and vegetables with a spicy house sambal chili sauce.
