2/38-42 Bridge St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia
A 10% surcharge applies on Sundays and public holidays.
Fresh Oysters (3 pieces) AU$ 14
Oyster with a Japanese twist, combined with salmon roe and ponzu, a citrus based soy sauce.
Kaisen Santen Mori AU$ 24
Seafood assortment, baby abalone, saikyo-yaki salmon and kingfish tartare. Abalone is served in its natural flavour. The miso grilled salmon is a bit salty but the kingfish tartare is fresh and refreshing.
Moving on to share plates:
Hiramasa Usuzukuri AU$ 19
Kingfish sashimi, same as the kingfish tartare in the above seafood assortment.
Salmon roll AU$ 16
Average sushi roll.
Unagi Hitsumabushi AU$ 22
Sliced grilled eel on rice with dashi broth over. Nice flavour and filling.
Wagyu Sukiyaki AU$ 23
Japanese hotpot with wagyu beef, udon and vegetables. The taste of the broth is just right, not too salty. But the beef was a bit dry and disappointing.
Gindara Saikyo-yaki AU$ 29
Miso marinated black cod wrapped in cedarwood. I love Japanese style miso cod, it is really soft. However the portion is quite small for the price.
Matcha Warabi Mochi AU$ 7
It is fun eating mochi because of its interesting texture. The mochi itself is sweet, coated with matcha powder.
Matcha Affogato AU$ 10.5
The green tea ice cream has rich milk flavour. It tastes like green tea latte after the green tea is blended with the ice cream.
Overall, the service is a bit slow when the restaurant becomes busy. The food is nice but not spectacular. I bet the matcha desserts are going to attract some matcha lovers.
