Living centrally gives you more excuses to eat out. Unless you work in Newmarket or the city it means you are fighting off others for lunch in the weekend at &Sushi.
Relatively new now, I had a quick lunch stop at the Newmarket branch. Wowza it gets busy – don’t expect to sit in there unless you have the time to wait or you are happy to be squashed up to by others. Busy is always a good sign that you are eating at a place that will deliver however in this case I am not so sure. Don’t get me wrong, the variety is more than you will find in any other sushi shop, they bring bright colours and interesting flavour combos. Being the biggest sushi fan, I was really excited to try something new and innovative.
I am not sure if it was that my expectations were so high from seeing how busy the store was constantly, or that I been recommended &Sushi for the fact that there are modern sushi flavours which are crazy and exciting – but maybe its true when people say you should stick to what you know and sometimes stripping food back to basics is the best way. I just felt with all the different flavours and combos, the flavours were lost. I was sad that nothing really gave me that feeling that I wanted to keep eating more. You always eat with your eyes and the food is beautifully presented and gives you that excitement to eat, I was just disappointed that the flavours didn’t match the look. To be honest, I can’t even remember what I picked now, but can’t remember the flavours that stood out either.
I had a quick look at the sit-down menu on offer. Everything again sounds very appetising. Two of our dining partners actually ordered from the menu, but I can’t comment on the flavours – until next time. I want to love &Sushi because the servers were very friendly and the food is beautiful and creative, I think it would really favour from bringing a little less flavours to table – less is more.
