I love a bit of sushi, but strangely I had never actually been to a proper sushi train. Deciding it was time to change that I settled upon one with glowing ratings in Newtown - a mere 2 minutes walk from the train station.
Although Sushi Train is located along the busy main drag of King Street, it still feels cosy and comfortable once you are inside and seated. Being such a popular spot there can be a wait. I probably waited around 10 minutes on a weekday night at dinner time, so that's not too bad.
There are lots of options on the 'train' and I preferred to just wait and watch for a little before making my first selection. However, despite careful observation, you may still find it difficult to identify some of the dishes.
Luckily each place at the table is furnished with a menu which helps you to determine what each dish is. This is especially helpful for those who, like me maybe looking in particular for veggie options.
I had four vegetable dishes and it cost me $13.00 - a really cheap but filling dinner. A must-visit if you are in Sydney on a budget. Just note, however, that there is a minimum order of $6.00 per person.
