Did you know that Orlando is home to some of the best and most diverse dining establishments in Central Florida?

Between fusion cuisine, award-winning chefs, and home-grown restaurants that are famous on Food Network, there’s much to choose from. Here are eight of our best Orlando dinner spots.

1: Nine Spices Hotpot

Located less than 10 minutes from Universal Orlando on South Kirkman Road is Nine Spices Hotpot. This place serves up authentic tastes of Asia at an unbeatable bang for your buck.

Chinese hotpot is a style of dining where you create your meal and cook it in a pot of hot broth on a burner at your table. Choose from an array of tasty meats, vegetables, seafood, noodles, and other ingredients to tailor your soup to your liking.

At Nine Spices, you can grab as many of your favorite flavors as you like from the revolving conveyor belt. Ingredients are on color-coded plates, which makes identifying meats, seafood, and veggies super easy.

It’s all you can eat at this dining joint, so come hungry and leave happy. At $27 per person, $17 per child ages 8 to 10, and $9 for kids ages 3 to 7, there’s enough fun for the whole family to feast on.

2: JoJo’s ShakeBAR

Instead of trying to explain to your kids what life was like growing up in the 80s and 90s, show them! JoJo’s ShakeBAR is a retro-themed restaurant located in the Pointe Orlando entertainment complex on International Drive — right across from Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando.

What sets this spot apart from traditional Chinese takeout is its extensive menu with a variety of hand-pulled noodles and steamy bao buns. Enjoy a mouthful of flavors like chicken, pork, or shrimp, and enjoy your meal stir-fried, steamed, or in a broth.

5: Uno Pizzeria & Grill

If Chicago-style deep-dish pizza is your favorite, then dine at the franchise that invented it: Uno Pizzeria & Grill. It’s located on International Drive directly across from ICON Park.

Uno Pizzeria & Grill also serves burgers and sandwiches, salads and soups, pasta, and dessert. They even have grilled meats like steak, chicken, and seafood on the menu.

There’s also a bevy of cocktails and beverages to sip on, as well as a kids’ menu, so even the little ones can enjoy good food.

After a long, fun day of shopping at the Florida Mall, go right next door to Gozamba Restaurant & Lounge for a taste of Latin America’s finest flavors. From the Dominican Republic and Peru to Puerto Rico, this restaurant brings authentic dishes such as queso frito, bistec encebollado, and mofongo.

7: The Mexican Camel

Mexican and Mediterranean food lovers can find their match made in heaven at The Mexican Camel on International Drive.

This fast-casual restaurant offers a unique Mexican-Mediterranean fusion. Enjoy Mexican nachos, tacos, rice bowls, and burritos with Greek grilled chicken, braised lamb, or habibi’s steak. The flavor possibilities are endless here!

8: Shogun Japanese Steakhouse

Enjoy Japanese cuisine and a show at the authentic teppanyaki dining establishment Shogun Japanese Steakhouse. The draw to Shogun Japanese Steakhouse, aside from mouthwatering fried rice, tender meats like chicken, steak, and shrimp, is the entertainment.
