A Japanese Feast: Hidden in a quiet corner near the food court at Mongkok’s Langham Place mall, SushiZushi is a casual spot paying tribute to – what else? – sushi (and many other types of Japanese food).

Look & Feel: Sushizushi is a casual joint that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Think of this as a grown-up version of the big sushi-train chain restaurants you already know. The patio area has a cluster of small four tables but once you get into the main dining area, there are booths for four and six people and a row of bar stools set against windows that look back into the mall. Interiors are Japanese-inspired with plenty of wood and a minimalist style. The star of the show, though, is the fish. They are all over a rather Pollock-esque mural on the back wall – and, giant wood versions come zooming up tracks by the booth to present food orders to guests.

On the Menu: Sushi, obviously. But, we tried so many varieties that I honestly lost track. Simple takes included fatty tuna or Wagyu beef topped with foie grab; the rather more extravagant “sushi cups” involved a big chunk of rice topped by different ingredients – we tried the scallops; tuna and prawn; and salmon roe and uni. Then there was the platter for four that was stocked with every type of sashimi imaginable, from tuna and salmon to (more) uni and yellowtail. Also, kudos to the chef who made the daring decision to plate up flame-grilled tuna tendon – it was a gamble, but adventurous eaters will enjoy it. I had a quick squizz at the a la carte menu – which is available in paper and electronic form – and realized that the restaurant also has everything from yakitori-style skewers and udon bowls to tempura and robatayaki, meaning guests here can have a full Japanese culinary experience.

Jeng: There was a nice variety of flavors in the food, and all the dishes were well presented – both on the plate and in the way they arrived at our table.

Not So Jeng: While SushiZushi is a decent choice for casual fare, it’s rather run of the mill – you wouldn’t go out of your way to come back for a meal here.

Great For: A casual meal or solo dining – if you’re in the area.

FYI: The restaurant also has a takeaway counter where customers can place their orders on a machine outside and pick them up when they’re ready.
