After doing a number of facepalms, I needed to frantically pace stroll to the restaurant in order that I’d not miss any sushi picture alternatives. I ended up being half-hour late to my very own dinner, however fortunately, Gee, Pat, and Jaden have been affected person sufficient, and not one of the meals landed on the desk but.

Sushi Mania has a status for being reasonably priced and respectable in addition to having an excellent number of dishes.

We additionally loved the candy imitation crab, however thought there may have been a bit extra of it.

Crunchy Munchy Roll – B

Whereas we have been musing over the menu, one in all us noticed one thing very cool-looking, and we have been decided to order it earlier than we even totally knew what it was. This turned out to be the Crunchy Munchy Roll, with spicy tuna, cucumber, and yam tempura bits. There wasn’t loads of spicy tuna, so the tuna offered little flavour to the roll. What produced many of the flavour have been the yam tempura bits on high. These have been crunchy and went effectively with the accompanying drizzle of spicy mayonnaise.

Black Dragon Roll – A-

Our subsequent roll of selection was the Black Dragon Roll, which got here with crab meat, avocado, cucumber, and seared unagi. The roll got here in small items, however was neatly constructed. The searing of the unagi created an exquisite smokiness, which was simply the spotlight of the roll.

For some odd motive, our Assorted Sashimi arrived in direction of the top of our meal. The hokkigai tasted the freshest and had a pleasant candy flavour. The salmon and tai additionally tasted recent. The tuna and tako have been barely much less recent, and the saba was quite chewy and salty.

Despite the fact that the restaurant was packed the entire time we have been there, we obtained pleasant service. Many of the meals exceeded our expectations, particularly after contemplating the value. If this place was just a little extra handy to bus to from SFU, I’d be a daily.
