Niji sushi bar, Kingsford, Sydney East

✦ A popular Japanese restaurant for the local population of uni students and other Kingsford neighbours.

✦ Lucky we made a booking as on a Friday night it was literally packed with a crowd of people waiting outside.

✦ Inside its run as a sushi train as well as ala carte operation. The sushi plates are different prices depending on the plate colour (not as good value as somewhere like Sushi Hotaru in Galleries).

✦ The ala carte menu is broad and includes a variety of Japanese cuisine including, ramens, yaki soba, sushi, sashimi and rice dishes. It is also fully licensed for your alcoholic needs

✦  1 line summary - decent Japanese but not outstanding. prices are reasonable given the area.

Seared Salmon Belly - lightly seared salmon belly with daikon and citrus sauce - $15 - Melt in the mouth salmon belly...mmm...only grip here is they could have sliced it thinner and have more pieces to really accentuate that soft belly flesh


Spider roll -soft shell crab, cucumber, chives and lettuce roll, topped with tobiko, wasabi mayo - $14.5


Pork Ramen -miso based ramen noodle soup, pork belly, bean sprouts, onsen tamago shallots - $15.5 - a bit disappointing for me, but perhaps that is because I've been spoilt with Ippudo and Ichi ban Boshi amongst others...



Niji roll - prawn, avocado and cucumber roll, topped with avocado, salmon, tuna and kingfish - $15 -A strange medley of flavours and sashimi slices which seemed to work well together!
