Eat in and pick from the train or takeaway - it's all tasty
Sushing at North Lakes opened mid 2014 and is a similar set up to the iconic sushi train.
With its clean neatness and Japanese decore, this restaurant has an authentic Japanese feel.
The staff are genuinely nice and helpful, and can't do enough for you.
The train is there, with the food items chugging around looking tempting and tantilising the tastebuds. The food all looks and tastes very fresh, and if you don't see what you want on the train, the Chefs are more than happy to make it up for you.
I've been to a lot of Japanese restaurants like this and some of them have more of a commercial feel than others, whilst one or two of them have left me feeling skeptical about the freshness of a couple of items.
Whilst one can never vouch for the quality of the food at any restaurant you don't work at, the food at Sushing appeared to be good quality and freshly made up.
For any of you who have ever been to Japan to try their little hole-in-the-wall cafes and intimate restaurants, then you will like Sushing. It has a very authentic feel.
Plates are priced traditionally depending on the colour and item, so guests can choose to eat cheaply or more expensive, and have one or two plates, or fill up to the max.
A point to note for those people who don't like raw fish - the writer doesn't actually like raw fish. I come to these places for the prawn and chicken sushi as well as the hot items such as spring rolls, gyozas, crab cakes, dumplings and other hot appetisers. My husband however loves raw sushi and raved about the items he tried here. Whether you love raw seafood or you prefer the chicken, egg and other non-seafood sushi, you will find something to keep you happy here,
Whilst Sushing is within the North Lakes precinct, it is not in the shopping centre. It's located in a little restaurant precinct area separate from the shopping centre, making it ideal for a night out with friends or a good lunch. Parking is relatively easy as it is in a separate street area, but obviously would be busier on Friday and Saturday nights.
Currently open 10.30am to 9pm seven days a week, but check their Facebook page in case there are any opening hours changes.
Sushing is located at Shop 102, 53 Endeavour Boulevard, North Lakes.
