“Excapade Sushi, Gadong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Best sushi place in town, in fact I'd say its world class and not very expensive. A bit busy though.

“Great Japanase Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Kuala Belait, in Brunei, is a good place to go for japanese food (especially sushi), and this restaurant is one of the famous. I haven't tried other restaurants in Kuala Belait, but this one's a value for money. Recommended.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

This place is very popular among the locals. All their restaurants has it's own design with nice ambiance. The staff are very friendly and the service is fast. In all my experience of having my meals there, I only had one slow service. My usual pick when I am there are; unagi with any of it's combinations, asparagus with beef, and udon with seafood. Somehow I have not got the hang of eating the sushi. And I wash it down with green tea.

“Brunei's Take on Japanese Sushi.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

First of, let's be clear Excapade Sushi is certainly no authentic Japanese cuisine.

It's been altered, modified and to a certain extent much more fattier - mostly because of that injection of Philadelphia cheese.

However this does not mean it ain't good. I actually love that explosive powerful combination of salmon, seaweed, sushi rice, avocado and Philly cheese together then dipped into a wasabi-fied bowl of soy sauce with a slice of pink ginger on top.

I rarely order the set menus or meals, just the individual small plates and my recommendations:

1. Unagi Sandwich.
2. Layer Sushi - similar to Unagi but different shape and healthier cause it ain't fried.
3. Seaweed - can eat 9 of these.
4. Soft shell crab ebiko.
5. California Maki normal and special.

Yet they've got more options for you especially the desserts and tempura. One special order you can ask which I'm not sure if its in the menu is like a tempura or filo pastry filled with Philly cheese! Though you should at least have done some cardio or exercise prior to it, otherwise you'd be filled with guilt for the rest of your day.

In terms of location, the Gadong branch is good for family gathering especially birthdays since you get those rooms.

But if you hate those dark spots, I believe all the other branches are light-friendly. I personally love the one in Kiulap. Easier to find parking compared to Times Square and Bunut.

I give Expacade Sushi a 5/5 simply cause it has the right balance of being delicious and affordable - at least for my meager student budget.
