Sushi Train, Neutral Bay

Sushi Train in Neutral Bay is special and differentiates itself from the rest of the Sushi Train franchise. The difference is the upmarket decore and ambiance with jazz music in the background. More importantly, you can purchase alcohol along with special dishes that you can only purchase at Neutral Bay. Some of the unique dishes that you can only get include the duck nigiri, chicken volcano nigiri and prawn miso garlic miso rolls.

All the dishes are reasonably priced. Here are some of my favourites.

I quite enjoyed the freshly cooked Karage chicken ($5 on the purple plates) that I ordered below. Japanese Fried Chicken is delicious when dipped into a generous mound of mayonnaise. Definitely order the chicken.

Are you tempted by some sake? These bottles above looked very tempting. You can order 180mls of sake from $7.80-$8.80. For the more thirsty, you can also order the larger sake, 360mls from $12.80-$13.80. I actually went for the Cho-ya Plum wine on the rocks for $7.80.

If you are a Washoku Lovers member then you can get a free glass of sake by showing your members card.

The Wagyu Beef Salad ($8.80 above) had a generous amount of dressing. The salad of wagyu beef, lettuce, grated carrot and crunch fried onion bits is a nice side dish to share.

My favourite dishes of the night were the volcano chicken (above, $5.50 for green plates). The chicken was warm and juicy with a nice lashing of sauce. Red plates are $4.50 and below. the freshly ordered gyoza was really nice, You can tell the gyoza is authentically Japanese because the skin is thin with a moderately crunchy bottom. Delicious! Definitely order these two dishes. 

Above is the garlic prawn and miso roll at $4.50 which was something different. Worth a try given you can't get this at any of the other sushi train franchises.

Ken is the head chef and owner of the Sushi Train in Netural Bay. It's been operating in the area for about 5 years and he brings the warmth and friendliness of the Japanese people. Say hello to Ken if you see him, he's such a nice guy!

Before you go, I would suggest you sneak in a dessert ($4), the chocolate fondant is a nice treat to finish the meal.

Note: I dined as a guest of Sushi Train and SD Marketing Global. All words and photos are my own. If you hadn't noticed; I go to many Japanese Restaurants so I love trying new places. Make sure you join Washoku Lovers for freebies when you dine at the many Japanese Restaurants in Sydney.
