Sushi Samurai

One night Bill and I decided to eat at Sushi Samurai (1/16-30 Bunn St, Pyrmont) since we always pass the place. We were lucky we went pretty early without a booking because during our meal we realised it was packed and there were a few groups of 5 or more. It's seems to be VERY popular, the restaurant comfortably fits 20 or so people and has a few tables outdoors but we noticed some groups waiting outside (not sure if they were waiting for their takeaway orders).

Honestly, I can be a Japanese restaurant snob, so it was reassuring and left me extremely happy to know the kitchen staff and floor staff were all Japanese. We received a small plate of Gobou to nibble on while we went through the menu. We tried to keep our dinner simple and everything was really quite good. Started off with a Sanma fish dish and ordered a sashimi set purely because it was called Samurai 7. The Samurai 7 was a set of 7 sake glasses with two pieces of sashimi each - perfect for us - and each piece was topped off with a special sauce to compliment the sashimi (reminded me of Yoshii's sushi). We also had a sushi plate which had the RIGHT amount of wasabi so you got a bit of a kick... but a good zing. Dessert was abit of a let down though, we ordered a Green Tea Tiramisu but they use the term tiramisu lightly because it really was just a green tea sponge cake with mousse :(  But anyhoo, we'll still go back...I want to go back and try the Pork Belly Peking Duck Style too... sounds interesting and I spied another table eating it :)

I wasn't overly satisfied with my dessert... it's so important to have a good dessert because it's probably the last thing you taste... so we finished the night off with some Azuma Patisserie goodies.
