Sushi Galore | Heidelberg

We had a hankering for some Japanese, but with two options separated only by Burgundy Street, we were a bit torn. Until the little lady popped her head out of Sushi Galore to see if we had questions, to rattle off a few specials, and to hand us a takeaway menu. Doh! When a proprietor or manager makes an effort to win your business like that, it’s hard not to go in.

So, into the restaurant we went. The decor? A simple mixture of Japanese decor, sprinkled with a sea-faring feel with ropes strewn across the ceiling, topped off with a solid touch of cafe. In short, an effort was made, but nothing to write home about.

I ordered the Vege Bento ($15.00) which came with a pretty tasty Miso Soup. Miso soup, for me, isn’t the most miraculous meal starter, but the fact I didn’t have to put soy sauce in it to make it flavoursome was a good thing.

My bento box had fried tofu, avocado rolls, a potato-pancake-type-of-thing, salad, and a sweet-soy type of stir fry with rice, all tucked into their little compartments. Overall, each component was okay, well worth eating but nothing overly outstanding. However, given the amount of food and a price tag of $15, I think it’s definitely good value.

Hubby bear ordered a mixture of stuff: Avocado Maki ($4.80), Tuna Tekka Maki ($5.80), and Futo Maki ($8.80) plus a couple of Plain Inari ($2.00/ea).  Again, each one was fine and gobbled up entirely; however, hubby didn’t find the flavours or freshness all that different to one of those places in the shopping malls.

What’s the verdict?  If you’re passing by and want a relatively well-priced Japanese meal – go in and give it a try.

Flavour: ★★★☆☆
Quality: ★★★☆☆
Service: ★★★★☆
Value: ★★★★☆
Atmosphere: ★★★☆☆

Address: 178 Burgundy Street, Heidelberg VIC 3084

Tip! If you don’t see what you’re after on the menu, ask them to make it for you.
