Looking for a commuter experience that doesn't involve dodgy timetables, graffitied seats and someone loudly discussing their personal life on a mobile phone? Try climbing aboard Mitzu's sushi train, where deliciousness is the first - and only - destination.
Located in Macquarie Shopping Centre's labyrinth in North Ryde, Mitzu's red walls gleam like a beacon for hungry shoppers, cinema-goers and sushi lovers. Fresh, reasonably priced plates traverse the tracks while the staff move efficiently to direct the flow of drinks, chopsticks and customers. The usual suspects are all there: sashimi, California rolls, teriyaki chicken and edamame. You can also order various soup and noodle dishes from the a la carte menu, a plus as it can be a struggle to find variety on the train during the slower afternoon period.
An added bonus to dining at Mitzu is the culinary entertainment provided by the chefs. They stand encircled by the train so you can see them in action slicing, dicing, sculpting and arranging. If you're lucky they might even bust out a blow torch to give a little spark to the salmon (and the proceedings).
Whether you're in for a quick bite or a marathon, multi-plated meal, Mitzu has the fuel to get you from point A to point B.
