I’ve got several friends who are big sushi fans. I’m not so much, but I do love Japanese food; I usually tag along with them when they go out. They have a favorite spot they frequent in Winter Park called Sukara but last night we all decided to try a place I’ve been wanting to go for awhile…called Bikkuri*. I can safely say after going there it’s my new favorite place in Orlando!
Even if you know where Bikkuri is located you might miss it if you blink. It’s nearby “little Vietnam” near downtown Orlando, on Colonial Drive (exact information is posted below). The dining area is actually on the second floor of a shopping center strip, so if you decide to pay them a visit just walk through the front door and head upstairs. After browsing through Bikkuri’s extensive menu you’re bound to find something you like.
Post dinner (they’re open for lunch as well) you might have an interest in going across the hall to their lounge. Ultra-cool and definitely unlike anything else you’ll find in the Central Florida area:
Orlando Metromix reviewed Bikkuri and stated it’s more of a takeout establishment with limited dine-in seating, but it looked to me there’s plenty of seating if you want to eat there. They also included a link that is probably more up-to-date than Bikkurisushi.com but unfortunately the link doesn’t work.

If you go to Bikkuri anytime in the near future please tell us about your experience! I’d love to hear about it.
