Just before getting to the restaurant we were insulted by a stressed out driver who almost crashed into us. Despite it being his fault he showed us his finger, hooted and swore. On top of this we were driving around trying to find parking and we had worked ourselves into a flat out panic. Walking into Kyoto Garden Sushi was the change we desperately needed and within minutes we were calm and serene. This place can only be described as an oasis of solitude and I wanted my evening to last forever.
This Japanese restaurant is everything most eating establishments should be aspiring to. They are true to their very nature and in so doing provide patrons with an experience instead of just a meal. With each bite comes a different flavour, and despite eating a lot we still walked away feel light and fresh. Everything was wholesome, fresh and bursting with flavour.
We started off with the Yellowtail sashimi, soft and delicious, which we ate with chopsticks the owner had brought straight from Japan.
Next came the Big Eye Tuna followed by the Scallops and Prawn wrapped in rice paper (by far my favourite).
After that we were served a plate called Ecstacy. Prawns, Scallops, Octopus, Mushrooms and Seaweed. Need I say more?
Now I’m not a soup fan but I’ve changed my mind after the next two dishes. Bowls of liquid deliciousness. First, The Sea: Prawns, Clams, Octopus, Mussels, Scallops and Seaweed. Then a Miso soup with Scallops Tempura.
You’d think we’d be done by now, but wait.. there’s more. After that we indulged in some Norweign Salmon Sushi which we followed with Quail Egg on Salmon Roe. With your hands you dip it in the soy sauce and let the magic happen.
And yes, there’s more. We ended with Kingclip and rice, quite possibly the softest and tastiest fish I have ever had.
As you can imagine, we never got round to dessert. Which can only mean one thing… we’ll have to go back.
