A cosy basement for Japanese and Korean food, including mixed sushi platters and spicy noodle soups within a minute walk from Queen Victoria Building.
It’s no surprise that Sushi & Grill @ York Street heads its menu with a set lunch selection. Between 11:30am and 3pm, this Japanese restaurant in Sydney’s CBD is packed with suited and booted city troopers indulging in sushi, stir-fry, grilled dishes, tempura and katsu, and noodles, all for a great price.
Quite substantial their lunch sets were. Like this sushi and sashimi set, it came with 4 pieces of nigiri sushi and 5 pieces of sashimi. You cannot change what is served, which were mainly consisting of tuna and salmon. Came with more rice and miso soup and a small bowl of salad.
I ordered the ala carte main nigiri set. I was hoping for 12 pcs of different types of sushi, but it came with many repeats. But it did have scallop with shrimp caviar, pacific clam, squid, salmon, tuna, cooked shrimp, aburi salmon belly and kingfish (my favourite).
We also ordered a couple of maki rolls to share. The Hungry Peter is a rather busy roll with everything from cooked tuna with teriyaki sauce, prawn tempura and grill chicken.
And we also ordered the classic Spider Roll with deep fried soft shell crab. Surprised ingredient was the deep fried lotus roos that resembled spider web.
A good Japanese restaurant for that quick bite, and they are Halal certified too.
