After walking past this restaurant a few weeks back and seeing their six-seater aquarium table and big Koi wall paper, we knew we had to go dine with the fishes.
Starting with the temptations… We ordered Salt Pepper Calamari with chilli. This must have been the crispiest calamari cubes we have ever had, and that is in no way a bad thing! The bed of Bean Sprouts was a clever and tasty addition to give you some relief after the heat of the chilli. This was followed by the Butternut, Spinach & Cream Cheese Dim Sum and was definitely our dish of the day.
We thought after such a great start we would try some of their extensive sushi combos as well, including Spicy Prawn Maki, Salmon & Cream Cheese California roll, Salmon Sashimi and Tiger Roll. We were a bit disappointed with their Sushi as the rice was sticky and extremely salty and quite dry. Also, the size of the sushi was very inconsistent, some being huge and some being quite thin, really lacked precision.
The dishes came out nice and quick, but the service was subpar. We don’t need a waiter to be standing at our table ready to take our order at all times, but if we have to get up and walk to the waiter with the menu to order, then it is getting a bit out of hand.
It is refreshing to find a place in Sandton that isn’t too expensive and we felt the portions and price were just right.
We will be back to try more food under their Temptation, Dim Sum and Stir Fry menu. We recommend if you go to make a booking at the aquarium table.
