Paired down, does-what-says-on-the-tin sushi takeaway and restaurant
The calm inside the latest Japanese outlet to open, Central Sushi, is a pleasant retreat from one of the city centre’s busier thoroughfares. A slick team works in view of diners inside the two-tier space. Fans of the Japanese goods store Muji (that all too briefly occupied space on Queen Street) will love the similar paired-down, no-brand styling. A simple brown paper menu lists the choices with minimal description and no pound signs. This may be to save ink or to distract readers from the city-centre prices. A good range of sashimi includes eel, octopus, cuttlefish and clam as well as more familiar salmon and mackerel. There are plenty of ramen choices (available with eel) and it also nods to Western tastes with a surf and turf chef special of beef, prawn and grilled veg. The sushi, served with an enormous dare-size portion of wasabi, is good without being showy – overall this place very much does what it says on the tin: provides sushi, in the centre.
