Sushi Train

Sushi Train. I’ve been told about this place many times. People like it. So, I had to check it out. It’s located in the Viaduct.  First impression, it looks quite cool with the conveyor belt with sushi etc on it. But remember, parking is hard to find around here – in fact, might be better to pay. I parked somewhere along Custom Street near Tepid Baths (it was free at night) and I noticed something strange. Every 4th or 5th car had a broken window.  As if the thief went on a rampage, so beware if you do walk or park around Custom Street. Anyway, samples below from Sushi Train:

Eel on Rice ($12)

  

Yellow plate – $4.50

Blue plate – $3.50

Red plate – $5.50

The dishes have different prices from $3.50 to $7.50 depending on which plate colour you choose. I thought the variety was somewhat average. In fact, the best thing to do here is to order. So, the concept of choosing the dishes from the “train” is kinda pointless. If I wanted variety (immediately that is), I’d rather go to Umi Sushi at Atrium. Sushi Train just seemed pathetic compared to it.

However, if you do happen to pass by and wanted to try it out. I’d say go for the “Chef’s recommendation,” for e.g. grilled scallop and grilled salmon. It’s also open at night compared to Umi Sushi.

My rating is 6/10. Sushi Train lacks in variety, especially since this is suppose to be a “sushi train”. The staff seemed distracted at times on my visit there, so service was so-so. If you want sushi with variety, save your money and go for lunch at Umi Sushi in the Atrium.

  1. Oooh, if you like sushi trains, you should try Sushi Room in the Chancery. You can watch them making the sushi, slicing up the octopus or blowtorching the squid, and they will make items to order if you want one of their 80+ sushi dishes which doesn’t happen to be on the train. They also serve donburi and udon for lunch, and other cooked dishes for dinner. As with Umi Sushi, there is more variety if you go during the usual lunch hour, and I avoid the deep-fried croquette type things because I would prefer those to be freshly made.

  2. They are so bad that they try to survive on doing one day deals. The portions are greedy, minimum standard and double the price of many other sushi places which defeats the purpose of a half price voucher doesn’t it? On top of that they let you pay extra for many small additional items that are normally free and the worst “the fresh fish” looks and tastes like being ready for the retirement village.. Avoid at all costs!

  3. BAD SERVICE FROM THE FEMALE MANAGER. PUTTED ON A LONG FACE AND INGONORED US. ONLY SMILED TO US WHEN SHE SAW WE WERE GOING TO PAY. SHE RUINED EVERYTHING. NEVER VISIT AGAIN!! EVER!!!!!
