This time we decided to sushi train it and try Tetsujin. First impressions were good. The dining area is airy and bright and not crammed together. The conveyor belt is large so there seems to be lots of food and the service seemed pretty efficient.
In terms of sushi, we made our way through what we wanted. There's the usual blend of seared and raw fish with the odd vegetarian option. It's all rolls or nigiri and sticks to traditional seafood or veggie with some desserts. Sashimi and other sundries can be ordered via the iPad.
We ordered some tempura udon, vegetable croquettes, agadashi tofu and the items arrived quite quickly and piping hot. I enjoyed these dishes and felt they were well priced and well executed.
The actual sushi train items got boring quite quickly and after one round of what we fancied we struggled to feel compelled to eat any more and not because we were full but because there wasn't that much that was appealing.
Water service was a little slow and I wish they'd just put a jug on the table because the little glasses are small and you can't order water on the iPad unlike Hotaru Sushi. There's a BBQ and bar area which I didn't take a peek at but would be open to trying.
At $3.30 for the sushi items, it's a touch more expensive that Hotaru but the seating and ambience is a touch better so I don't mind the $0.30 premium but in terms of quality it's about on par. It's not bad but it doesn't have me pumping to return either but I wouldn't be opposed to going back.
