Chinese and Japanese Food
Whether you’re in search of Szechuan-style noodles, authentic sushi delights, or something with pan-Asian appeal, Chesapeake, VA has you covered. Take out, dine-in, or call for delivery to enjoy one of the many Chinese or Japanese options.
As the first restaurant in the Chesapeake metro area to serve a hibachi-sushi combo, Kyoto Japanese Steak House, is ideal for date nights, family fun, or business meetings. Gather round the teppanyaki for fresh-off-the-grill steak, shrimp, and chicken served with housemade sauces. Or, order a roll creation like the Kyoto Crispy Roll with white fish, eel, and crab, deep fried and topped with spicy mayo.
With over 50 years of combined restaurant experience, the chefs at Daikichi Sushi Bistro provide you with authentic sushi staples alongside new favorites like the American Dream Roll featuring shrimp tempura, tuna, salmon, white tuna, and avocado wrapped in seaweed. Sit at the bar to watch chefs form delicate maki rolls, or slide off your shoes and secure a traditional tatami room. Once drinks are out, sink your chopsticks into seaweed salad, ramen noodles, or tempura, before trying traditional Japanese mains like chirashi, udon noodles, or salmon teriyaki.
At Mikado Japanese and Thai Restaurant, start your meal off with soups and salads, before choosing Thai dishes, Japanese specialties, or a combination of both. Stick to the Japanese side of the menu to enjoy bento boxes filled with teriyakis, tempuras, and California rolls. Or, try the Thai side for fried rice, curries, and stir fry dishes that are sure to please your taste buds.
Japan Samurai is a great place to find delicious food and top-notch entertainment. Stop by for pieces of hand-sliced sashimi or freshly cooked meat from the hibachi.

Japan Samurai will also accommodate worldly youngsters with a full hibachi menu including steak, chicken, and shrimp.
Originating in southwest China, Szechuan cuisine is known for using generous amounts of garlic and chili peppers, and the food at Judy’s Sichuan Cuisine is no exception. Sit down to a bowl of authentic pork wontons in hot chili oil before trying a plate of eggplant in spicy garlic-ginger sauce.
At Jade Garden, Chinese classics like chow mein and orange chicken are on the menu as are chef’s specials like the Four Seasons: a mix of meats and veggies in a brown sauce. The lunch menu also has tons of terrific options, all served with pork fried rice, and you can even add an egg roll for just 50 cents.
For a fast-casual, cash-only option, stop by Orient Express. Choose from selections like teriyaki chicken strips, chicken egg foo young, sesame chicken, and, of course, wings. For those who only have a minute to stop between shops, Famous Wok at Greenbrier Mall is always a reliable option for food court fare.
Szechuan Inn has proudly served Hunan, Cantonese, and Szechuan-style foods to the Chesapeake area for almost 30 years. With lunch and dinner buffets available, pile your plate with authentic offerings including egg rolls, General Tso’s chicken, and steamed snow crab legs on Friday nights.
