Healthy, fresh and delicious Japanese food at your reach
Kintaro is located in the newly renovated section of Colonnades Shopping Centre, which features lots of new stores, eateries and services including Aldi supermarket, Endota Spa, Cibo, Ishka, Cocolat, Chau Vietnamese, Go Vita, Springfield Butchers and Barossa Fine Foods. Kintaro brings a fresh, healthy and fun alternative to dining out in Adelaide's southern suburbs. They serve traditional Japanese hot and cold meals from their menu, however Kintaro has quickly become popular because of its versatile sushi train.
Some may ask "What is a sushi train?". It is basically a conveyor belt built around a food preparation area. Patrons sit around this moving conveyor and pick whatever they would like to eat by simply helping themselves to a colour coded plate, and cooks replenish this belt with new creations constantly. At the end of your meal the bill is calculated on how many plates of each colour you consumed. Prices range from $3.50 for simple sushi to $8 for more elaborate dishes.
Desserts are also available
How much is enough? It can be hard to say how much sushi one can eat, but as an average you might consume 5 to 6 plates to feel comfortably satisfied. The price of your meal depends on the choices you make. For two people with dessert and a pot of green tea we paid close to $35. Kintaro has a relaxed and modern atmosphere, you can also sit outside, in booths if you are in a larger group, or by the bar if you are dining alone or with a couple more people.
Kintaro has an extensive menu featuring all sorts of seafood salads, sushi rolls, cold rolls, vegetarian options, sashimi and delicious crunchy deep fried options too. Their drinks list is mainly soft drinks, green tea and other non alcoholic drinks.
