Sticks 'n' Sushi Review | Emma Jayne

So this review is one that I have been meaning to do for ages and it's actually from my favourite restaurant - Sticks 'n' Sushi. I have now been to the Covent Garden site, Canary Wharf, and most recently, and the time this review is based on, in Wimbledon. Jack and I went to celebrate my new job starting and we had a lovely evening out. We booked a fairly early dinner at 5.30 and after having a few drinks elsewhere in Wimbledon we headed in and were greeted and lead to our table by the lovely man on the host desk. 



Inside the decor is nice, clean and modern with smart comfortable chairs and tables that weren't cramped together, the interior has an air of sophistication about it making it a higher class dining experience. As we have already eaten at a Sticks 'n' Sushi before we have a general idea of our favourite dishes and drinks so we ordered quickly and the food came freshly made in a good amount of time. 
To drink I had my favourite the Hotaru, a rum based fruit cocktail and Jack had a beer. We also tried sake for the first time and went for the waiters recommendation of the 'Today's cold sake' and really enjoyed it.

Now onto the food, we like going all out when we order sushi so we ordered a lot! first up was the sashimi mix, one of Jacks favourite dishes and with ordering this you can seriously taste the quality of the fish it's just delicious! Next up we ordered some of the sticks, we shared the pork belly with yuzu-miso & sesame, goat's cheese with dried ham, duck hearts with teriyaki and the miso marinated black cod, these are so tasty and add a different texture and flavour to the meal, they were obviously so yummy that we demolished them all before I took a photo to document, but believe me these are little bites bursting with so much flavour.

Next up came the main sushi rolls we ordered, we went for the Rainbow Roll, New York Subway, Black Cod Daikon, Hells Kitchen and the Pink Alaska (not shown in image) we love rolls as you tend to get a bit more for your money, and if you are sharing they are perfect. My favourite out of this selection is easily the black cod, it has such a distinct taste and the first time I had it was at a Sticks 'n' Sushi. Every single roll is just bursting with so much flavour differing textures and deliciousness.

Once we finished all that, we of course needed some pudding so both went for a set of 3 (they are pretty little) I had the Matcha Cake, Vanilla Creme Brulee and the Chocolate Fondant while Jack chose the Chocolate Fondant, Marcel Chocolate Cake and the Cheesecake. My favourite was by far the Matcha Cake which was like a stunning lava cake that just melted in your mouth! The rest were all delicious too!

Overall the service was great with everyone being really friendly and helpful and the food being delicious as usual. We will certainly be going back to a Sticks 'n' Sushi at some point and I would certainly recommend the Wimbledon branch as much as the other that I have been to.
