No 1 Sushi Bar
This restaurant has ceased trading.
Reliable, friendly local sushi joint a stone's throw from the Cameo Cinema and King's Theatre.
In the heart of Tollcross, No 1 Sushi Bar has friendly, attentive service and high standards for the food too. Prawn katsu is wonderfully crunchy on the outside yet delicate in the middle, a brilliant flavor and texture combo. For mains, the deep-fried pork escalope with yakisoba noodles is well-seasoned and well-balanced. Teriyaki chicken is delicious, with the perfectly cooked sticky rice and a sauce that will make you want to lick the plate. Mackerel sashimi is bursting with freshness and beautifully presented. Be sure to finish off with the house saki (served hot) or the choya liqueur (Japanese ume fruit); both a wee bit too moreish.
