Adelaide certainly has it’s fair share of sushi train style eateries, and for most of them, the dishes are pretty much the same. At Sushi Q Restaurant, there are 4 coloured dishes with varying prices, but what brought me here this Sunday morning were their amazing $2 plate deals between 11am and 2pm. Other places offer $3 plates on special occasions but $2 a plate is a bargain.
Most sushi train eateries have trains the size of the dining space. At this place, they have booths and seating around the sushi train area, as well as a separate dining area to one side. The frontage is larger than normal, and there is plenty of natural light flowing through.
The Seared Tuna had a slightly charred outer layer with a soft delicate pink flesh. The sushi rice was moist and well seasoned, and it was a good way to start off proceedings.
The Tempura Onion had a light crispy coating which covered a sweet caramelised onion.
The Crumbed Prawn had a firm exterior and it’s inside was soft and delicate. The mayonnaise was light and tangy, and the carrot added a nice crunchy texture.
The Potato Croquettes had a nice crunchy coating which revealed a soft delicate mash on the inside.
The Seared Prawns had a lovely smokey charred flavour. The prawns were still soft and delicate, and were well complimented by the subtly sweet teriyaki sauce.
The Wagyu Beef was lean and tender, and had a lovely smokey flavour about it.
Fresh and silky salmon pieces sat on top some typical pieces of sushi. The carrots added a nice crunchy texture which made this dish more appealing.
The Smoked Eel was provided in generous amounts. It was well balanced by the subtle sweetness of the teriyaki sauce.
The Seared Salmon has some lovely smokey charred flavours. The salmon was still soft and delicate, and each bite was almost heavenly.
The Tempura Prawn had a lightly battered crisp coating which revealed soft delicate prawn pieces. The cucumber added a nice crunchy texture while the capsicum provided a surprising burst of sweetness.
The staff were friendly and the service was fast and efficient. Drinks arrived promptly and were constantly refilled, and plates were cleared as they started to pile up. The atmosphere was relaxed and the pricing was good value. As mentioned earlier, each plate was $2, although I did notice a lack of the more expensive plates being made.
I think it’s time everyone got onto the Sushi Q Restaurant, particularly on a Sunday morning.
