surprising find

Stumbled onto this hidden gem because my usual meii omakase is closed. Tried the 10pc ($60) sashimi set and the chef gave us different fishes from the menu because he said fresh ones were flown in yesterday. So we had 5 kinds - the succulent melt in the mouth otoro, sweet and soft mutsu, shinahagi, delicious tai and isaki. Honestly I have no idea what I ate but they were good. Thick, fresh slices with no hint of being frozen or anything. 

Also tried unakyu maki ($6) hich is roasted eel and cucumber Sushi roll. Simple and tasty. The chawanmushi ($5) was pretty run off the mill though so don't really need to bother ordering it unless it comes in your set (It  didn't in my case) 

Our secret chef was very friendly and made the whole visit very pleasant. They also use fresh grated wasabi  (we were given a stick to grate ourselves for fun and also consumption)

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...

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!
