Sushi with a Twist may be a bit too on-the-nose to be a catchy name for Woollahra’s newest sushi train, but it certainly lets you know what to expect once you enter that brightly lit space of life-sized illuminated soy sauce bottles. Left-field and experimental rolls are the forte here, but the owners and Chef have been careful not to go overboard with their surprising combinations, maintaining that quality take precedence over the need to differentiate from the many sushi trains found across Sydney. The result is a good mixture of traditional and contemporary sushi plates which have been inspired by classic, yet odd, combinations like Prosciutto & Fig. ... Read More | Share it now!
