Sushi Train Adelaide Reviews
One of the best sushi train restaurants we visited outside Japan Jan 31, 2016
S34°55.847' E138°35.866' located on the outside of Adelaide Central Market on Gouger Street; at dinnertime, this sushi train restaurant attracts many customers. To be sure of a seat inside, we were just in before the 7pm crowd in January 2016. They do not accept reservations.
Living in a country where Chinese businessmen have started all-you-can-eat Japanese sushi restaurants and where government inspectors have found many violations of health and safety law in these restaurants, this Sushi Train restaurant made our fears disappeared. We were welcomed in the Japanese language by all staff members, Japanese chefs were busy preparing sushi and the restaurant looked like an exact Tokyo copy.
This Sushi Train restaurant serves green tea (free refill) and soft drinks. No alcohol. We started with a delicious miso soup. The sushi on the track was nicely presented. New to us, the track also offered dumplings. The first salmon sushi immediately confirmed our first impression: excellent. It was very fresh and had nice texture and great flavour. We cannot rave enough about it: every sushi was delightful. The one with seaweed brought up memories of our visits to Japan. Nice wasabi and ginger on the side.
One of the advantages of a sushi train restaurant is the close inspection of the "kitchen" right in front of you. Ingredients, preparation and hygiene were of high standard. Staff members took personal interest in their guests. We had small talk with staff members, all with Japanese or Asian background. We talked with Yuki about his city of birth: Tokyo. Many shared memories.
For AUS$60 we had one of the best sushi meals in years in the Sushi Train restaurant in Adelaide. Leaving this restaurant, we offered gracefully our compliments and said goodbye in Japanese. A truly must-visit recommendation.
