Sushi Arigato

I've had a craving for Japanese food for a while now so one Saturday night, H and I made our way to Sushi Arigato on Stanley Street.

H ordered the Arigato Dinner Special - Yakiniku Sashimi Set ($19.90). The beef was tender and tasty but only 5 pieces of meat. But then again considering all the other food you get; sashimi (very fresh), tempura, salad, miso soup and rice, this is great value for money.

As for myself I had ordered the Sushi Set D ($16.80) which was a plate of combination nigri (as above), seafood katsu, today's side dish, miso soup and salad. Unfortunately the "today's side dish" came out almost towards the end of the meal and I forgot to take a picture of it. The side dish however was seriously yummy. It was prawns battered and wrapped in noodles then deep fried and a sweet sauce poured over it. Yum!

Seafood Katsu was delicious too. The batter with dried breadcrumbs was crispy and oh so tasty with Japanese mayo.

Due to our cravings for Japanese food we decided to stuff ourselves and ordered an extra dish - Grilled Salmon nigri ($9.90). The mayo and sweet sauce dressing over the grilled salmon was a tad too much but they added extra flavour to the dish. Although the salmon was seared with a blow torch, by the time it got to our table it was quite cool which was a bit of a let down. Will visit Sushi Arigato again though as it's great value for money.

Looks good! What it a fish fillet i the seafood katsu or more a patty made up of different types of seafood?

Hi Lorraine - The fish fillets were actual slices of fish crumbed and deep fried so more katsu then patty. ;)
