Jump on board – but be quick
This sushi train stops for no-one. You’ll need your twinkle fingers at the ready to nab your fav sushi plate at Sakura Sushi. It’s a train on a mission and there’s no time to think. If you vaguely like the looks of what’s on a carriage, grab it (or your neighbor will beat you to it!).
What I like about this place is that the service is fast and friendly and the meals are of a high standard, yet remain affordable. To this end it’s ideal for a lunch break mid-week, if you work in the area, or a no-fuss mid-week dinner.
Your usual staples of tuna & avo, crispy chicken and salmon are of course available, but my continual favourite which doesn’t let me down is the steamed dumplings of minced chicken with the perfect amount of ginger and lemongrass. This simple, yet well-executed plate always satisfies. I will have to venture out at some point and try their eel and octopus options, although it might be safer to just leave that for the true pescetarian fans out there.
If you do feel like a tipple, it is BYO. Although, we did take a bottle of wine one evening, and we did feel a little out of place as nobody else was drinking and it did seem a little weird to be drinking wine at a casual, fluro-lit sushi joint.
All in all, a quick easy meal for lunch or dinner.
