SenoritaLay, MC, MRyan Photography and I hit up Sushi Club for some all you can eat seafood.
We headed over to Pyrmont after work, with MC and I parking in Darling Quarter and SenoritaLay and MRyan Photography parking opposite the restaurant in the Secure Parking.
Getting there was pretty easy as it is only a 5 minute walk from Darling Harbour shopping centre.
The atmosphere was pretty quiet and calm.
There were a couple of other tables around us but, being a Wednesday night, no one was particularly chatty or loud. We were probably the loudest ones there!
The brick walls and florescent lighting didn’t help the restaurant’s appearance, although the red and white chairs did brighten it up.
Also, while I didn’t use the restrooms, I noticed that some people who did use them had to go to another room outside the restaurant, possible an outside toilet or something- not ideal!
Service was quite average.
When we arrived, MC and I went up to the registers and asked if we could have a seat and order a drink.
We were asked to choose our drink from the fridge, which we did, and were then led to a table outside.
As part of the all you can eat option, you have to finish one dish before ordering another. As there were 4 of us, each of us had to order a dish each time. At the end of the meal, MC and I were ordering dishes just to keep up, which is a bit of a waste as the restaurant could have just let SenoritaLay and MRyan Photography order a dish on their own (it would have been better for them!).
I ordered a mango green tea and MC ordered an Asahi beer ($10.00 total).
To start off, we were each given a bowl of Miso Soup, which was…well, a standard Miso Soup. Probably a filler for the main event, but that didn’t stop us!
MC ordered the Chicken Karaage. It was crunchy and a bit oily, but we all loved it nonetheless! We ended up ordering another dish of it because we are all fatties who love fried food. The tangy mayo was perfect with it to freshen it up a bit and MRyan joked about having to eat the lettuce and orange before we could order another dish!
We ordered a Smoked Salmon Roll which was quite large and presented nicely, if a little messily.
We also ordered a Crumbed Chicken Roll.
We ordered a Sashimi Platter for something a little more fresh. Unfortunately it was pretty disappointing. There wasn’t a lot of fish, it was about half fish and half vegetables, and the few pieces of fish that were there were poor quality and had bits of skin on. They were poorly cut and quite chunky.
We ordered Chilli Edamame to munch on with the sushi and I have to say this was one of the better dishes I had. The chilli sauce was delicious and hot and it had a very strong garlic taste, which I loved. The beans were warm and fresh and overall the dish was an interesting take on the standard salted edamame.
MC ordered a Teriyaki Chicken hand roll. It was a bit difficult to eat as it wasn’t tightly packed, but the teriyaki chicken was tasty and the rice was perfectly sticky.
We also ordered Pan Fried Pork Gyoza. There were lots on the dish and they were crispy on the outside and tasty and moist on the inside.
The Tempura Prawn roll was probably my favourite dish, as I love crispy fried foods and seafood. The roll was tasty, the prawn crisp, and the extra fried pieces on top added some more crunch! This roll disappeared quickly!
Finally, SenoritaLay ordered the Salmon Salad. This was an average dish, again with poor cuts of salmon. However, there was a lot of roe and avocado in the dish and it didn’t taste too bad overall.
I would rate my experience (out of 10):
