If you are after decent Japanese, a massive amount of food and value for money – I definitely recommend Suzuya. $18 gets you miso soup, a small tasting of glass noodles, agedashi tofu, entree, main and rice.
For tea we were charged $1 for the pot. Cant complain about that!
The miso soup, a small tasting of glass noodles and agedashi tofu:
All three are nice. The miso soup is what I would expect. The glass noodles with strands of carrot is tasty and well seasoned. The agedashi tofu is probably not as smooth or melt-in-the-mouth as I may have liked, they use the firm instead of silken tofu, and the outside skin is a bit rough, but overall not bad flavours.
For the entrees we choose:
Salmon and avocado sushi roll and sashimi plate. Geeze these are big portion sizes! In the salmon and avocado sushi roll, they clearly use the scraps/off cuts of salmon, however they are very, very generous with the amount of salmon and the size of the sushi rolls. I dare say it is almost as big as a main portion. The sashimi was impressive, fresh, and a very good sized portion.
Next on to the mains. We ordered tempura and katsu chicken (which also comes in a pork option). The mains were also large. The tempura consisted of two prawns and a variety of vegetables. Very well cooked. The Katsu chicken was a very large portion, the chicken was succulent, crispy on the outside and came with some side salad.
