Decent food at affordable prices

I was doing my research for an affordable and decent Japanese restaurant (to bring my family to) when I google-ed up Sushi Kou. What made me interested was their affordable omakase sets priced at $50, $80 and $100. With a nod from my (birthday) brother, I quickly called to make reservation. However, I failed to realise it was actually nearing midnight.

Me : Hi, I like to make a reservation for Saturday, 7pm.
Him : Oh, wow. I cleaned up everything. Thought I can go home already. But I am very happy you called.

I was actually left confused till I looked at the clock and realised how late I made my call! So yes, I was very touched that although I called way past their closing hours, the staff still made the effort to pick up the phone. With a good sense of humour too. =)

We arrived on a Sunday night and were led promptly to our table.

And from the menu, we ordered:-

1) Pickled seaweed, Complimentary

2) Stamina roll, $18 – Avocado & omelette roll topped with whole roasted eel.

3) Sushi & mini udon set, $18 – Set came with chawanmushi and dessert, which was jelly. I was disappointed with the toppings of the sushi. The colors looked so bad and non-appetizing.

4) Gindara teriyaki set, $25 – Grilled silver cod. Set came with chawanmushi, rice, miso soup and dessert. The set is priced at $18, but we opted for additional sashimi. Thus, $25. Sashimi comprised of tuna, salmon and squid. For additional sushi (instead of sashimi), it’s $26.

7) Special kaisen don set, $26 – Assorted seafood on sushi rice. Set came with chawanmushi, miso soup and dessert. 

Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, please continue to read my review on other dishes here : Part 2

In the end, we did not try the omakase sets because Sushi Kou require us to order for 2 people, minimum. And the sets had to be of the same price. Meaning, if my brother and I were to go with omakase, we had to order two $80. We cant order one $50 and one $80. As such, we decided to go with the set menu which offered us more variety!

If you are interested to know more about their omakase sets, you can read fellow blogger MissTamChiak‘s, although hers was a media invite.

Generally, I was pleased with our dining experience. Decent food at very affordable prices. You know how the price plays an important role when you are paying for a big group. =p And for the price we were paying, I felt we were getting a good deal cause we’re dining in a proper restaurant. You know how it’s different when you are dining in a restaurant compared to an outlet which is one of the many (franchised) branches? The service for the former is definitely more attentive.

So yes, I definitely recommend Sushi Kou!

Service + Food quality dropped significantly

We used to frequent Sushi Kou because we liked the good service and decent food at affordable prices. The Japanese chef is also the owner of the restaurant and we just liked the sincere service and treatment we had. Today, we visited Sushi Kou again and to our dismay, the standard has dropped significantly. Service wasn't as good as before as the manager lied through his teeth that our sea urchin aka Uni was "normal". Uni is not supposed to taste sour or bitter, but since it's frozen, and does not come from the shell itself, the taste could have been different. But, we weren't told that the sea urchin wasn't fresh from the shell. Also, the unagi stamina roll was not up to standard anymore as the unagi was fatty and there's not much meat to it. There used to be more appetizer selections as well, but we only got one today. There's a difference in service and food quality for sure! Will we come back? I guess if we can't get reservations else where...

Cheap $50 omakase option available

For those not able to score a reservation at Teppei, Sushi Kou two doors down offers an alternative $50 omakase option with a more pleasant eating environment. Given that they ran out of the $80 and $100 options when I was there, we had to settle for the $50 omakase. There seemed to be many Japanese in the dining crowd which gave me some comfort.
