Kishi Sushi, Adelaide

Lunched with C-bear over a sushi deal late last week at the new ‘sushi train’ on Rundle Street: Kishi. Any ten dishes and a drink each between two people for $29.00.

Expectations were rather low after perusing through the comments on urbanspoon but seeing that the deal was already bought, we thought we’d check it out anyhow. After all, it does work out to be a relatively cheap lunch!

Surprisingly, we really enjoyed the sushi. Most of what we ordered were made to order as the train had very few plates and not a lot of variety, but at least what we received was fresh and straight out of the kitchen! The venue was relatively empty when we arrived so one was hoping that service was super attentive and speedy. Not so, there was the one waiter and presumably the owner to attend to the patrons on hand. The waiter appeared bored and uninterested whilst observing us eat (awkward!) but when asked questions, was helpful and informative. Psst! I don’t like it when people stare at me eat, it’s just weird, awkward and really really uncomfortable. It’s like I have to concentrate on how my mouth looks when I’m stuffing it down with food. HA! Clearly, not a very attractive site. 😛

Kishi’s menu is quite limited and slightly dearer when compared to the ‘Sushi Train’. The sushi is fresh and tasty but when given the choice, I’d pick Sushi Train over Kishi for their friendly and speedy service, prices and atmosphere!

    I tried Kishi a couple of weeks ago, we had a day in the city and wanted a quick lunch to takeaway to the parklands with the little one. I found the service to be very good, and the sushi very fresh. I don’t eat sushi very often, and usually stick to the tried and true (cooked tuna, raw salmon, teriakyi chicken), but wanted to try something different. There was plenty of difference on offer but I didn’t know what most of it was! None of the food had a label to tell me what it was, so I just grabbed what looked good.
    It was quite a bit more expensive than our local sushi place, but it was delish and very fresh, straight from the kitchen. I would try it again if I’m in the city and have a sushi craving.
