Nara Sushi

Having a Yo Sushi at GWQ is fine and well, but sometimes it is nice to give the independent restaurants our support, plus there is the need to pay a minimum of £2.80 to park at GWQ!

I went for a spot of lunch Saturday afternoon to Nara Sushi.  There were only 6 other customers in there, but it still created a nice environment.  The waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful.

The concept is the same as Yo, with a conveyor belt and brightly coloured dishes all individually priced.  I am no expert on Sushi, but the food in this place was very good compared to my previous sushi adventures.  The rice had a consistency and texture so creamy it melted in the mouth, like no other sushi rice has done before.  I ordered a Tuna Set, Chicken Gyoza, Salmon Roe Nigiri (this was beautiful), to name a few.  Even the wasabi was prepared beautifully, and not too harsh on the palette like it can be. 

What a cute place!  They have 2 belts, so lets hope they fill them with lots of adventure seeking locals.  I will be back for sure!

Top tip: They have a BYO policy too!
