Much appreciated Alwyn. We worked hard on crafting a menu that spoils people for choice, not only with the great variety of dishes but also with the creation of certain dishes that you will only find at Fusionista. We are very happy to hear that each time you come back it gets better.
We also have some unique cocktails to keep things interesting.
Hope to see you soon!

Had lunch yesterday at Fuscionista. The menu is extensive with offerings from Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, and other Asian countries ...maybe a tad too ambitious. Decor and ambience is pleasant. The waiter was sweet but clueless: didn't know the menu, struggled getting basic drinks orders right. We had Rainbow roll sushi, which was good, crispy duck in oyster sauce which tasted great but the duck was slightly over cooked (it's a huge challenge with duck to get the skin crispy and the flesh not overdone) and sticky pork ribs. Strangely the ribs arrived 5 minutes after the rest but cold. My dad said they tasted good, but that night he had gastro which is worrisome. Saturday lunch and only 4 tables, so it seems they are not quite getting it right, and won't survive if they carry on like this. Pity, because it's a lovely venue and some interesting food options, so I'm hoping they can adapt and focus.

Thank you Graeme for your constructive review.
We had to employ replace 2 waiters and due to the size of our menu it does take time to train new waiters to become au fait with all the items on the menu. We will also be implementing a Silver Star training course for our waiters next month.
Glad you enjoyed the Rainbow roll sushi. We have made a huge effort to create top of the range sushi dishes.
Also happy to hear that the crispy duck in oyster sauce tasted great. You are 100% correct when you state that it's a huge challenge to get the skin crispy and the flesh not overdone, which is something we always try to achieve with our crispy duck. I have instructed the kitchen staff to ensure that the ribs arrive on time and at the proper temperature. I'm glad nevertheless that your dad still says that the ribs tasted good. We had many ribs ordered on that day and everyone was happy, so there was no problem with the quality of the ribs.
In fact we have one couple who comes back every week especially for the ribs.
We do have some quiet days, especially when there is a big rugby game on. We are gradually establishing ourselves and the people who do try Fusionista for the first time are positive with many of them returning as loyal customers, and so we are seeing a steady improvement in the numbers.
We hope to host you again in the near future.

That's great to hear Julian. Combining the meal and the massage makes the experience more enjoyable for customers, which is what we are striving for. We hope to host you again in the near future

The layout and decor is superb, relaxing and spacious.

The menu is huge and has a large variety of Chinese, Japanese and other Asian food, with a few items that you don't find at other places.

The prices are not bad and justified by the food quality, service and venue.

Thanks so much Kevin. We spent a lot of time and effort on the decor in order to create the right ambiance.
We like to spoil people with choice as well as providing something different, so we created a large diverse menu. Hope you come back to try some of our other delicious dishes!:-)
