I've been a bit anti-sushi for the past 6 months. I think I was still getting over the closure of Zenbu (which lives on in my memory, for the tempura crab claw sushi, and the best dessert ever - three types of cheese cake deep fried in spring roll papers, served with three fruit coulis), but after lunch with Karen last Friday at the new Momo Japanese Restaurant in Gladesville, I think I am ready to embark on the quest for the perfect sushi once more.
And what better way to begin than to return to what you know best? This review of Matsuri Japanese Restaurant is written by me back on the 20th September, 2005:
Best sushi and sashimi in Sydney. If you've ever wanted to eat sushi where the avocado is perfect every time, the raw salmon has no white on it, and the taste is superb, this is the place. Even their takeaway outlet next door does awesome sushi and sashimi, and instead of buying by the roll, you buy in 2 piece lots.
Staff are always friendly and attentive, though it does get busy. Go the sushi and sashimi boat if you have 2 or more people who like their raw fish... it's served on a wooden boat, looks awesome, tastes even better!
Congratulations Matsuri, I have now been a patron for over 4 years, and nobody has beaten you yet!
