Halloween at the Walt Disney World Resort

Sushi Takes Center Stage at Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Resort

posted on April 15th, 2014 by Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer


Sushi is on a roll at Kona Cafe at Disney’s Polynesian Resort – for dinner, the little Kona Island sushi bar in the upstairs lobby is now an extension of the restaurant, and the sushi is crafted in the dining room in the former dessert show kitchen, giving chefs plenty of room to create specialties from sashimi and simple rolls to more elaborate combos such as the Caterpillar Roll (inside-out tuna roll, shrimp salad, tempura crunch and avocado) or the Lava Roll (togarashi-spiced tempura shrimp, bay scallops, spicy mayo and chives).

If you enjoyed the Kona Island sushi bar before, you can still grab a seat there, no reservations required, and the entire restaurant menu is also available. (We’re partial to the sticky wings and Pan-Asian noodles with shrimp.) But now you can start with a little sake and more than a dozen choices on the sushi menu.

And java fans will be happy to know that Kona Island is still the spot to grab a delicious cup of coffee and pastry in the mornings – it’s right next to the resort’s monorail station.

I ate here for the very first time during my last vacation and the sushi we got was fabulous. It was beautifully presented and it tasted great! My friend ordered the Pan Asian Noodles with Shrimp for his dinner entree and it was also great.

Our server was extremely helpful and attentive and she made our meal a great experience.

I will definitely be going back here during my next trip to WDW.

I hope that doesn’t mean you got rid of the delicious desserts!
