Earlier this month, we made a revisit to Sushi Planet for their new menu launch courtesy of the lovely ladies from Girl About Town and Sushi Planet… and the colourful spread that was presented before us was nothing short of amazing! We were clearly in sushi heaven… or better yet, on a real sushi planet–see what I did there? 😉 Lame pun joke aside, it was a feast for the eyes and bellies for those that were invited to the event.
Things have been looking up at Sushi Planet over the short amount of time that they’ve been open, and as a result, their menu has expanded and their trading hours extended. Now that’s a big yay for us! The new menu gives sushi fans a chance to try some new and different flavour combinations, and their yakitori menu has some new inclusions of miso-marinated salmon, gently grilled scallops with herb butter, and meaty chargrilled king oyster mushrooms glazed in yakitori sauce. The actual menu booklet has also had a facelift with images accompanied with dietary labels for easy navigation for vegans and gluten free eaters and even a dedicated kids menu.
Sushi tetris on the main table… and the massive tub of sashimi on show!
SO. MUCH. SUSHI. Some of the delectable offerings on the night included: aburi salmon roll with avocado, aburi cheese roll with breaded chicken thighs and mango with spicy sauce topped with seared cheese; beef tataki: thinly sliced beef, spring onion, sesame seeds with sesame dressing; a variety of classic nigiris: tuna, inari, prawn, salmon and the seared aburi kind too; and of course sashimi. Lots and lots of sashimi, kingfish, salmon, tuna and scallop! Not only were there a heap of sushi and sashimi on offer, but there was also platters upon platters of yakitori skewers: breaded pork with tonkatsu sauce, crispy chicken wings, breaded chicken thighs with miso aioli sauce and miso marinated salmon. Vegans and vegetarians were definitely not forgotten with seaweed rolls with avocado, asparagus sushi, broadbean sushi, snow pea sushi, asparagus with teriyaki skewers and mushroom skewers–which was actually really really good with a buttery finish!
Don’t take our word for it, check out the sushi pics below!

Awesome beer on tap handle! It’s a samurai handle… I am easily amused!
Clean eating also plays a part at Sushi Planet, with their dessert menu getting an update with healthy variations of caramel chocolate dessert, lemon curd meringue cheesecake, and tiramisu. We got to taste their cacao and goji brownies, a small piece of dense and rich chocolately cake with organic cacao and goji berries and it was perfect. Not overly sweet, and just enough to meet those sugar cravings… and the best bit? It’s healthier than the usual brownie, tastes just as good, if not better and is refined sugar free. A win-win in our books.
Check out some of Sushi Planet’s photos of their decor and contemporary looking space. There are beautiful timber stools lined up along the bench that overlooks the large open kitchen, a long timber hero table that runs along the centre of the restaurant, concrete polished floors and concrete seating outside; but surprisingly it doesn’t feel cold or stark. Instead, the space is quite warm and inviting with the use of warm coloured timbers and large soft over hanging lights above the long table and plenty of natural light filtering through the timber slacks along with walls outside.
Main hero table, LOVE their stools, outdoor area (perfect during the summer, not so much during the winter but I’m hoping they get some outdoor heaters fitted in)
