Today, my dining companion and I set off for Sushi Club and even before it was 4pm (they close between 4pm-5pm), they had already shut their doors. We both felt like sushi and the only other place nearby open at 4pm on a weekday appeared to be Kura.
After my previous visit to Kura, I wasn't overly impressed with the place as I found the place over priced for what it is - even though it is just a tiny casual eatery with a take-away sushi counter, the prices they seemed to charge were leaning towards mid-fine dining prices.
The other thing that hugely put me off was when you go in, they ask you whether you want take-away or dine-in. I noticed that they have separate menus for both and the dine-in menu is more expensive. That in and of itself I find particularly dodgy.
My friend looked at the menu and found it over priced too. Their "sushi and sashimi combinations" were over priced so we ended up opting to order sushi rolls which seemed to be set at a more reasonable price point.
|Beef Tataki $10|
|Scallop Aburi Nigiri $12|
|Salmon Aburi Nigiri $11|
|Soft Shell Crab $10.80|
|Salmon Avocado Inside Out Roll $5.20|
On the flip side though, the salmon avocado sushi was rather delicious. I could definitely eat more of this. They used salmon belly and it was very good and fresh. The salmon belly practically melted in your mouth. Coupled with avocado at the perfect ripeness, these morsels were moreish.
|Wagyu Aburi Nigiri $11.20|
- Bill at $67.20 ended up being a reasonable price. At this place, if you're careful with what you order, the bill comes out to be ok
- Different menu and prices for take-away and dine-in puts me off
- A few of the dishes are really good: scallop aburi, soft shell crab roll, salmon avocado roll
- Only place open at 4pm on a weekday in Pyrmont
