Review

Setting

For the trendy omakase dining vibe, which Sushi Zo does very well. Book ahead though—the restaurant can only accomodate 10-12 diners at any one time, so it usually organises two sittings per evening. Enjoy the culinary theatre as chef Toshi Onishi and his assistant chefs serve up deliciously fresh bites.

Rating : 18/20

Food

The omakase experience, meaning it’s up to the chef what he serves you, covers 18-20 bites per meal at Sushi Zo and you never know what you might get. Much depends on the availability of fresh fish flown in daily from Tokyo. Hence on one visit you might enjoy the light and bright citrus flavours of halibut with yuzu and lime zest, or Spanish mackerel with ginger, chives and ponzu sauce, but on the next visit it might be steak-like tuna akami with soy sauce or sea bream (madai) served in a dome of smoke, which has the delicious charcoal taste of the barbecue. This highlights another important point—that there are no little dishes of soy sauce, wasabi or other seasonings provided here. Rather it is the chef who imparts the flavours to each piece he serves with just the right dab of sauce or a smear of paste, thus ensuring that all-important balance with the delicate pieces of fish.

Rating : 38/40

Wine

The drink list is limited with a small selection of sakes and imported Japanese beers. Prices are high and only one sake is served in a carafe, which gives a modest six pourings.
