It was a wet yet muggy weekend, on top of that it was Chinese New Year! The city, especially Chinatown strip up to Town Hall was packed with crowd and CNY celebrations, so I opted to go up north there and enjoy my lunch in a leafy suburb of Artarmon, away from the busy CBD's streets and madding crowds.
Sushi-ya, an authentic Japanese restaurant on a quiet side of Artarmon, off the train station then turn right and it's the first restaurant you'll see on your right-hand side, just right on the corner.
It's not a Japanese restaurant with the best service nor ambience but if you love sushi and sashimi and prefer a relaxing atmosphere then this place is worth a try.
My Salmon lover rolls were superb, fresh salmon with a hint of avocado and topped with ikura (salmon roe).
The tempura was light and tasty.
Fish teriyaki served with mashed potato
I had to admit that the price is above average, but the the portion is quite generous though.
