REVIEW: Kimonos

As some of you may know sushi is one of my favorite foods and now I have a new place for this addiction, Kimonos. Located in the Swan resort it is only a boat ride away from Epcot or Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The ambiance of this restaurant is very laid back and intimate. With small tables and sofa seating you feel like you have slipped into a quiet place to relax. It is a great escape from the large crowds in the parks. There is a lantern bamboo ceiling and traditional kimonos for décor. It is a smaller restaurant and gives a New York City trendy vibe. In the front of the restaurant is the sushi bar where you can watch the chefs make wonderful culinary creations. If you are dining alone this is a great spot to sit. The menu has a variety of sushi options and well as salads, soup, beef satay, seared tuna, tempura and more. We had the Spicy Rainbow Roll, Dancing Eel Roll, Shrimp Tempura Roll and the California Roll. To order your food you mark down on the menu your choices and how many of whatever you want. I thought this was really different and hip.

Our sushi looked like a work of art. The presentation was unique and well put together. It tasted so fresh and simply delicious. As I am writing this I am thinking about how much I can’t wait to go back again. Kimonos becomes a fun spot for Karaoke around 9:30pm. That is when the cocktails and songs start to spill out through the evening. This restaurant is the best of both worlds. An escape from the busy parks and a place to let loose with upbeat singing and fun. Have you been to Kimonos? What is your favorite place to eat sushi in Walt Disney World?

  1. Hi Ashley-
    Sorry to hear about your experience at Kimomos with the loud clientele, etc. I agree that Kona also has a good selection of rolls as well. Thank you for the comment. 🙂

  2. I’ve been around three times and simply have to disagree. Yes, the ambience is much more trendy and cool than most other WDW locations, and the sushi itself was very fresh. However, the menu is overpriced, does not offer many options, and the clientele were stuffy businessmen on their phones the whole time. Tokyo Dining inside Epcot is far superior in both quality and appeal, and even the sushi bar at Kona at the Poly offers more exciting roll options.
