Above its sister restaurant, Little Venice, this Asian hot spot is a favorite among locals for its fresh sushi bar. Take the footbridge—over an indoor stream—to the raised seating at the lively teppanyaki table, where trained chefs stylishly slice, stir, and season your steak and veggies onto your plate. The menu includes traditional Asian soups and entrées and a variety of Indonesian and Thai dishes (don't miss the curries), as well as nightly specials. Choose from
a selection of wines, sakes, and Japanese beers to wash it all down. The backdrop of colorful dragons and a handcrafted pagoda add to the Asian flavor. There's also an open kitchen, so you can see the energetic chefs at work, complete with flames. L'Oriental's Take Out Express locations are on Church Street and Victoria Street.
