Popular takeaway shop serving sushi galore, plus other Japanese dishes, in itsy-bitsy but cutesy surroundings.
You might squeal with excitement at Cailin’s menu – over 50 different pictures of Japanese morsels look as tantalising to a sushi lover as a huge box of brightly coloured sweeties does to a toddler. It’s difficult to choose between the classics like salmon temaki or cucumber hosomaki, and the more unusual ingredients such as surf clam nigiri or flying fish roe gunkan. The chef’s specials include the spider roll, with whole tempura soft-shell crab, or the volcano roll – which is filled with cool salmon, avocado and crab stick with a cheeky wee kick from spicy mayo and wrapped in a Chinese leaf. Beyond sushi, there’s donburi (rice bowls), bento boxes, and noodle dishes like the prawn yakisoba. The pint-sized shop has some cute artwork on the walls and a fridge full of soft drinks, including Japanese pop in novelty bottles. Although taking away seems a more popular option there are a couple of small tables to perch at, as long as you don’t mind a stream of delivery drivers filing in and out to collect their savoury swag.
