This evening we are visiting Café Sushi to experience their much talked about Osaka Street Food Night. As we enter Café Sushi we are warmly greeted by the team and shown to our table, which is positioned next to the sushi bar. The sushi bar has a rotating conveyor belt offering a selection of tempting Japanese cuisine. Guests can select freshly prepared dishes whilst watching chef and his team make each and every plate before their eyes. You will feel as if you have left Abu Dhabi and been transported to Tokyo. The décor is bright and clean with light wooden furnishing, high seating tables and chairs surround the sushi bar with optional lower tables on both sides of the restaurant.
To start we are presented with Edamame and Miso Soup. The Edamame is served warm, with a hint of sea salt, whilst the Miso Soup offers the perfect consistency, with just the right amount of tofu. We cannot help but try a few dishes from the conveyor belt, each dish looks so tempting we must stop ourselves from trying them all.
Our dining experiences comes to a halt when we are surprised by the Sashimi. We were expecting a small bowl with a few slices of Sashimi, but that’s not Café Sushi’s style, the team here knows how to wow their guests. The Sashimi is served on a bed of ice decorated with mood lighting and fresh leaves. The Tuna and Salmon Sashimi is incredible. The Salmon Sashimi makes a lasting impression, fresh to the taste the salmon simply melts in our mouth. This is an indication of the excellent quality of the Salmon Sashimi. Continuing our salmon theme, we then enjoy the Blow Torch Salmon. As the name suggests the Blow Torch Salmon consists of beautifully blow torched salmon which sits on a bed of hand rolled rice.
Chef visits our table with his sushi trolley in tow, after some discussion he suggests the Crispy Shrimp Tempura Maki, made fresh, it tastes phenomenal, and we enjoy the interactivity. After enjoying all of this we realise that we still haven’t made our way out to the terrace, this is where the live stations such as the Robata Grill and Ramen Noodle Station are. We try a small portion of the grilled Octopus and the Ramen Noodles, again, both are absolutely delicious.
If you are looking for some of the best sushi in Abu Dhabi without breaking the bank, we would highly recommend Café Sushi. Offering a relaxed atmosphere but with the five-star service you would expect from Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, Café Sushi earns its place amongst the best places to enjoy sushi in the city. The high-quality ingredients, well trained culinary team and reasonable price point ensures that we will be back again.
Osaka Street Food Night takes place at Café Sushi every Tuesday from 7.00pm to 10.00pm. AED 175 for all you can eat from the buffet with water, soft drinks and iced tea or AED 275 for all you can eat and free flow adult beverages.
