This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Going to Miso and Sushi is like going back in time. The décor can't have changed in years. Glaring lights preside over a corridor of booths lined with wood and ancient flock wallpaper. It's in desperate need of a spruce up. However, if there's no love spent on the interior, that's because it all gets lavished on the food. A long menu, both Japanese and Chinese, has all the classics, plus a few more, and the friendly staff will happily talk you through it. A dragon roll, looking not unlike the Loch Ness monster, is theatrically presented on a huge white platter. Salmon teriyaki ramen, complete with a boiled egg, is tasty and nourishing in a rich stock, although the special of grilled salmon belly, drenched in grease and oil, disappoints. There's a constant stream of customers coming in for takeaway and given that the food's good and the interior isn't, that might be your best option. Otherwise, embrace the feeling of being in a retro film set, and enjoy the attention to detail on your plate.
If you’re going to call yourself Miso and Sushi, you need to pay attention to the miso and the sushi. Thankfully, they know their onions here, with some of the best sushi in town available for pick-up or delivery as well as a compact Japanese menu featuring tempura (although this doesn’t travel so well) and ramen. A fuller Chinese menu is also present and correct, but with sushi this good, why would ya? Spanking fresh, pretty dragon rolls, salmon nigiri, avocado maki and the like, washed down with a balanced, salty-savoury hit of miso soup is going to make your tummy very happy. Delivery charges of £1 per mile may mean picking-up is a better option – expect a 10-15 minute wait or call ahead.
