One of Sansui Japanese Cuisine's Favourite Reviews What's This?
I went for a dinner out with my best friend and we shared the food tapas style which meant we could try a bit of everything, including the sake which was presented in the most unique and delightful way.
The service was really great! The waitress explained each dish as it came out and each plate was brought to us promptly. Beautiful ambience with the booth style tables creating our own private dining experience and the background Japanese music created a very authentic event.
After the main food events when I thought it couldn’t get any better it was dessert time. To be honest I wasn’t expecting much as I find a lot of Japanese restaurants tend to just have icecream on the menu. The dessert was amazing – I had the tofu chocolate mousse which was heaven…not a taste of tofu but the creamy texture and rich taste of cocoa. My friend had the pavlova with green tea ice cream which was also divine.
I will definitely be going back again this time with a group of girlfriends to share more tapas with, and this time I’ll save more room for dessert!
The ambience was great with its mood lighting, which complements the beautifully presented dishes.
I especially liked the little touches, like bringing the wasabi root to the table, and grating it on the wooden board there in front of us, and serving it. So cool.
Needless to say, the service was very attentive.
The food at Sansui is delicious. An absolute favourite for me.
I go there 3 times a week in the lunch time as they have every day different lunch special boxes. It is quite valuable!
Highly recommend !
