Summary

The Orchid Court Lounge, which almost exclusively caters to guests staying at the Royal Pacific Resort, has a tri-polar personality. In the morning, it's a quick-service stop for Starbucks coffee and continental breakfast pastries. From noon to midnight, it's a bar and lounge with free wifi and a brief “bytes” menu that incongruously incorporates bacon cheeseburgers and grilled mozzarella sandwiches with orange ginger chicken and rice paper rolls. Finally, in the evenings the sushi chefs arrive, preparing fishy fare that falls (in terms of quality and creativity) somewhere between The Cowfish and Fusion Bistro at CityWalk. Most of their rolls are adequate executions of Japanese-American standards – California, spicy tuna, spider, volcano – though a couple, such as the Tropical, use more unusual ingredients like kiwi and mango. This is the only place on Universal property to order some expert items like Uni (sea urchin) but be warned; they are formerly frozen and outrageously expensive. Ordering a la carte can quickly add up, but the combinations aren't cheap either: a 25-piece sashimi combo will set you back over $50, and a “Tahitian long boat” for four is over $100.

Setting and Atmosphere

Located on the lobby level of the Royal Pacific Resort with a gorgeous views of the pool and central reflecting fountain, the Orchid Court Lounge is decorated with inviting hand-carved Balinese furniture and flowering orchids. At one end of the lounge you'll find a find a bar with coffee and liquor; at the other end, a traditional sushi-bar with see-through seafood cases. In between, clusters of couches and armchairs separated by wooden screens form intimate seating areas.
