Azuma on the Lake

This high-end Sugar Land Japanese restaurant with a dramatic interior design is serving some wonderful Pacific Rim dishes as well as some of the finest-quality sushi available. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, Azuma on the Lake's chef will prepare five-, seven- and nine-course tasting menus. The Lobster Ceviche Salad and Hamachi & Yuzu Chili are excellent examples of the chef's creativity, while the Ocean and Orzo dish, consisting of peppered shrimp and scallops prepared with bacon, cheese and corn, adds a new twist to standard ingredients.
