Whenever I’m asked, as I was the other day, “for a good sushi place, not too anal, and not bank-busting,” I direct people to this snug, refreshingly unpretentious Sumo Sushi that has got eyeballs rolling with the quality, consistency and bangin flavours. Packaging is ergonomically done up, simple, to the point ensuring that the sushi remains intact and isn’t a mess of dripping sauces and raw fish in a box.
Neat compact sections ensure that the sushi remains in place, looks fresh and inviting with small containers of Gari and Kikkoman
Traditions are held dear,however, a bit of experimentation is also at play in the menu that offers a wide range of this delicately rolled artsy food.
The better news? These guys serve up a sushi storm even post midnight which is awesome for people like me who don’t most often realise the time and place of erratic sushi cravings.
I’d put my buck on the not so healthy but oh so wonderful Las Vegas Roll, huge in size, crunchy, spicy and creamy made with juicy tuna, what a medley of flavours!
Dynamite Roll is my most standard addiction and these guys delivered well in terms of the fresh cure of salmon, crispy prawn Tempura in creamy spring Mayo. Yum.
Amaya is delicate and interesting, salmon in the centre with soft cream cheese, wasabi peas and avocado bringing out a stellar flavour, much different than anything you have tasted before thanks to those nutty peas.
Vegetarians will equally go bonkers over the indulgent sushi offerings.
Crunchy Asparagus Tempura
– The former is gooey in the centre with bold Shroom flavours, spiced, with a bit of heat and the latter is nicely crunchy in the centre, bags of flavour there, exorbitantly assembled, both are straight winners even for a carnivore like myself.
Verdict: The sushi is fresh, humungous, the menu is exciting and any sushi lover falls in love with a celebrated creative sushi menu. The prices will not leave you in regret because the food defined complete value for money!
