Nippon Kitchen (Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

I have been here many times and always loved the food, atmosphere and always recommended here to many people. I have aimed to come back but then covid hit, so today I did.

Tonight’s visit was a bit of a mixed bag to be honest.

It was a busy night, and we were seated…we ordered our starters and mains and drinks.

After a wee wait our my main arrived and my friends side…..no starter. After our waitress noticed (she was very on the ball and very helpful) another little wait and our starters arrived. We finished our starters, and I sat and waited till my friends main arrived as since I had sushi it was already cold.

A bit of a wait later and we got an apology and my friends main arrived, they were kind enough to remove his main from the bill and explained most of the staff tonight were new….to be honest we didn’t mind as it was a busy night plus if they were new that’s cool we have all been in that position before.

Anyway yes I LOVED my meal and continue to read my thoughts.

Starter

Takoyaki (5 Pieces) £6.00
Octopus and cabbage in a soft batter with ginger and spring onion, with tonkatsu sauce and Japanese mayonnaise

I wanted to order something random and this stood out for me.

I am so glad I did as this is SO SO SO good!!!

The batter had a very slightly crisp to it, and biting in to a very soft and mega tasty inside. The full taste plus the sauce was honestly so moreish!!

I finished this starter with ease and loved every mouthful.

Highly Recommended.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Main Course :

16 Piece Moriawase Sushi £17.50
Cucumber & pickled radish, California maki, fresh salmon, tuna, king prawn, mackerel, tuna mayonnaise and salmon mayonnaise nigiri.

Every time I am here I always have to get this, as its filling and super tasty.

It tasted as good as it looks, and everything was nice and fresh.

I was mega full come the end of this as I hadn’t realised how filling my starter would be.

Highly recommended if you like sushi.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Mocktail : Amai Nojito £4.50
Pressed apple, blueberry, lime, mint, soda

I was the designated driver tonight so a mocktail was needed.

This sounded very nice, so I had to give it a shot.

Presentation was very nice, and the taste was very refreshing…my only comment would be it was 1/2 full of ice as you can see…so a bit more of the juice would have been better.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Overall :

After all the long waits and the mains coming first before starters tonight was a nice evening.

Service wise to be honest it wasn’t great, but they were kind enough enough to remove my friends main from the bill.

Food wise, as always very very nice and very moreish.

If the service was good like it was in the past, it would have been a solid 5/5 but due to that I have to take it to a 3…sorry guys

Yen Oriental Restaurant (Glasgow) : Review

28 Tunnel Street
Glasgow G3 8HL

V: 13th July 2018      T:  0141 847 0110    W: glasgowrotunda.com/yen/

Child Friendly: Yes (well behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card


I spotted that Yen did an “all you can eat” Sushi night which cost around £18 per person (excluding drinks) so I thought lets try it as I love Sushi.

I have never been here so this was my first time, and on entering its very nice inside.

The waitress tried to explain how it works, but still I was a little confused and just crossed many boxes. When she saw it, she then explained again which made sense…so….

You get 7 rounds to order food (not really all you can eat, but you should be full by at least round 4 or 5).

I only managed 2 rounds, but the first was a big one as I got a lot.

The Food…

This was a lot of Sushi and very very filling, the last part for me Maki I didnt really enjoy that much but I did really like the hot food and the Nigiri.

Overall I cant really fault here, was it value for money….for me no but if you get more Sushi then yes it is!!!

The sushi was all very fresh, and very tasty so if you love a lot of sushi then check out the unlimited sushi nights at Yen.

Temaki (Glasgow) : Review

It has been ages since I was last here, and it was about time I came back for some Temaki love.

Temaki is known for the Sushi Burrito, and this is what I wanted to have again on my return visit.

I knew this visit I would get the same Sushi Burrito again, as it is just too good not to well for me. I would also try another side dish with this, and see how it was but this would be chosen on arrival.

The Food…

Starter

Sushi Burrito (Volcano) £8.50
Tuna, Avocado, Cheese

As I mentioned at the start of this post, I have had this before but I wanted it again and hoped that it was as good as I remember.

OH MY GOD!!! this for me was really good!! Every bite was packed with amazing flavours, and really nice textures.

This is something I could easily have two off, and look forward to having again.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5
Value for Money : 5

Chicken Goyza £3.00

I opted to try this, as the burrito is cold and thought lets try something warm.

I am glad I tried this dish, as it was very nice my only complaint would be I wish there was more but that’s only due to how good it was mmmm

The flavours were really good, and the sauce that was over them just added that extra mmm

Portion Size : 5

Right guys if you haven’t been here check them out, well that’s it your a Sushi fan.

Very happy I went back, and thanks again to everyone at Temaki was great to see you again and have a chat.
