Arrived at 5.45 to the front of this sushi place. It was a Saturday and there were already 3 rows of people queuing infront of the store. There was a staff standing at the end of the queue to make sure customers who are queueing are standing orderly and not obstructing the traffic flow.
Basically you enter from the front door and exit from the back door. We queued for about 40 mins, which was decent in my opinion. We were offered the set, which was alright, but I would probably select my own sushi next time. We agreed to the set without really knowing what was included. as the sushi came, we just ate and it was all fresh and nice. It was the first time i felt sea urchin was fresh! But i am still not a fan of that.
Chef doesn't really speak english and he was serving a few customers at the same time. I think he was confused because after a few sushis, he said "last piece" to us. We were not too sure how much to expect, but having eaten the highlights like the fatty tuna and teh sea urchin, we thought maybe thats all. So we ordered additional Ikura sushi as it was my favourite kind and i really wanted to taste the difference in freshness.
It wasnt that special and after our additional order,the chef probably realized he forgot some sushi and gave us a few more pieces, including 6 small pieces of rolled sushi of which 2 are ikura!
Overall it is unique experience. But would suggest to review the menu properly before ordering, especially if you don't eat or don't enjoy certain sushis, it would be better to order more of those you enjoy.
