Restaurant Description

Oyaji is a must-visit for any sushi lover visiting or living here in Orlando. This family-owned and operated establishment is tucked out of the way off of International Drive, just a few minutes from the Kirkman and I-Drive intersection, on Municipal Dr next to the Cheers bar. From what I can tell, it's one of the few local japanese hang out spots. It's not rare that I am the only non-asian customer in the place. It's a smaller restaurant with only one sushi chef and one kitchen chef, so on busier nights (weekends) you may have to wait a bit for your main meal, especially if your dinner party is 6 or more. If you do go with a larger group, I suggest going to Oyaji on a non-weekend night, unless you don't mind waiting. Good things come to those who wait and believe me, it is worth it. You can enjoy many of their delicious appetizers while your main meal is being prepared. Their Miso and Clear soups are perfect and their Ginger salad always tastes very fresh. I've had many items on their extensive menu and I've never been dissappointed. I usually end up ordering sushi rolls though. My personal favorites are: Kamikazi roll (mix of chopped tuna, whitefish, and salmon with a special white sauce), Fire roll (spicy tuna with an extra chili kick), and the Shrimp Tempura roll (the best version in town). Also, I suggest calling ahead of time before travelling to the restaurant, they sometimes randomly close during the week to take care of other family business.

Pros: Delicious and authentic menu, great value, cosy ambiance
Cons: Sometimes a long wait for food if it's a busy night

 Food is good for "Orlando" area. It is not hibachi. It is teppanyaki. The place is decent but the exaut system is not working. Seems like it is in reverse mode. I cannot go there and than goback to work because we all leave the place like they roll ...
