Good things come in small packages – and this compact sushi bar in Finnieston is a prime example.
Cailin’s Sushi is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it eatery in the heart of the Finnieston strip. Visually the small sushi spot has stayed sparse and unassuming in a part of town where style is king. A chalkboard of weekly specials above a fridge of ice tea and soft drinks is about the only thing to look at if you are dining in at one of the restaurant’s two small tables. Perhaps the stream of delivery drivers (from every imaginable online outlet) popping in and speeding off on their bikes with large takeaway orders has focused their attention on the food. The decision has paid off, with Cailin’s providing reliably good-quality dishes across a menu which excels at sushi. They do noodle dishes, bento boxes, sweet teriyaki donburi bowls and flex considerable muscle in these areas – but it makes good sense that they put sushi in their name. Some of the most imaginative sushi in the city is on offer here. Sea bass, surf clam and spiced tuna are among the highlights from a menu that is happy to push boundaries. Fans of authentic Japanese seafood rolls really must pay Cailin’s a visit. Or get them to come to you.
