Aisuru Sushi (Subiaco)

Following the success of their original branch a second restaurant opened up in Subiaco near the theaters. This venue is bigger than the NB one and I’ve never had to line up for a table. The menu is the same at both venues (if my memory hasn’t failed me).

The layout and deco are very simple and basic. It’s good for a casual dinner or when catching up in a group.

What we ordered:

  • Salmon skin & Unagi roll (half roll $11)
  • Jennifer’s rainbow roll (half roll $12)
  • Spider roll (half roll $11.50)
  • Grilled scallop roll (half roll $11)
  • Pork belly yakitori ($6.50 each)
  • Anago eel yakitori ($6.50 each)

What we thought:

Not as good as I remembered it to be when I had eaten in Northbridge. I didn’t find there was enough filling and the flavours didn’t have a WOW factor.

The spider roll was so dry and hollow. The grilled scallops looked so un-grilled 🙁 That was prob my least favourite. I love crispy skinned salmon normally so I thought having it in a sushi would be nice but it wasn’t crispy enough. The best was probably the rainbow roll because it was loaded with topping. 

The yakitori sticks were sooooo tasty! Pork belly overruled the eel. But I still don’t think its worth $6.50 a stick.

Not sure if I would return anytime soon. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great.
