THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Yamabuki Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED Located outside of The Disney Resort’s Paradise Pier Hotel just under the valet’s porte cochère and the main doors, Yamabuki is both a hip sushi bar and fine dining restaurant, complete with a small Japanese “tea” house room for those who want to dine in more authentic surroundings. The décor is rather tastefully done and not as kitschy as some of the other restaurants in nearby Downtown Disney or in both parks. There’s a full bar here, too, so make sure to start with a strong drink. Chef Katsuhiko Sato knows how to prepare both traditional and modern sashimi and sushi as well as California fusion dishes. Go for the four-course “Imperial” menu, which begins with a generous ahi poke and then moves on to an entrée of tempura prawns with a pan-seared duck breast. The desserts don’t impress as much, except for the crunchy and creamy green tea crème brûlée. The service exudes Japanese hospitality and the knowledgeable and gracious servers also give recommendations about the park’s other diversions.
