Its been a while since I reviewed a Japanese place but I’m glad I did. The place has both tables and closed rooms for families which is something rarely offered in Kuwait. Although it would have been cooler having tatami in the closed rooms. I liked the Japanese design of the place which can be seen in the gallery.
The first thing that was served was my friends Sushi Club Special Salad. Their salads are big, I recommend one salad for every two people. The salad had fresh vegetables topped with salmon, crabsticks, avocado and their special dressing. I’m not a fan of raw food but my friend liked the salad. Maybe go for a little less vinegar if you order it.
Then came my Green Salad which was a mix of fresh vegetables topped with corn and avocado served with their special dressing. I’m not sure what they use for their special dressing but it’s pretty good. I’m just glad I didn’t fill up after having a salad this big.
The prawns were one of my favourites. I think they were called Creamy Prawns. They come as 6 pieces with a heavy sauce. If you like fried stuff for appetizer then you should go for this.
We asked them to replace the crab with shrimp in the maki rolls and the end result was better than expected. We ordered a mix of maki rolls and they were all good. I have yet to try a maki roll that tastes similar to Essa Maki. You will find L.A Maki, Jurrasic Maki, Java Maki and Wow Maki in the gallery below.
My Chicken Teppanyaki was great. The closest thing I can compare this chicken teppanyaki to is the same one at Maki. Except this one has mashed potatoes which were boiled with the duration I prefer. You can order an extra sauce on the side you if you like everything with a sauce just like I do.
My friend tried their vegetable noodles. He recommends it for people who don’t want meat or fish. Again, the portion of noodles he had was pretty big and can easily fill you up. Which concludes that most dishes Sushi Club offer are pretty big.
I liked the place and will be back for more. You can reserve a chef that will cook in front of you for a table of up to 6 people (I think). Similar to what they do in Benihana. I wish they stick to soft instrumental Japanese music rather loud English pop music.
