Review of Real Sushi

Reviewed 12 September 2015

Had a quick meal here a few weeks ago. Sushi was fresh and really good quality. Service was OK with waitresses only just getting the job done. Overall cost was very reasonable. The only poor dish I had was seared tuna which was very badly prepared. I would not order this again but everything else was great.

Once could easily miss this little gem.
I know one always wants to avoid going for Sushi at somewhere you don't know, as Sushi can be a bit touch and go, and it would be easy to walk right by this unassuming Sushi bar in Norwood.
The decor leaves a bit to be desired, and it is often busy, but as someone that has eaten a lot of Sushi in her life, I keep going back to my neighbourhood haunt.
It is very reasonably priced and the fish has always been really fresh.
I always have the crispy Salmon skin maki, tuna and salmon sashimi, and a prawn tempura hand roll and I haven't been let down. I generally never eat from the conveyer belt at any Sushi bar, unless I see it being prepared. Generally restaurants tend to skimp on the fish, and sometimes plates are not that fresh. (this pertains to most restaurants)
They do not have cold sake, as in chilled, so unless you are happy with room temperature, ask for it in an ice bucket, with only ice not water, mine tippled over in the ice bucket and got filled with water :-(
Perhaps not a destination restaurant, but definitely worth a visit.

I suppose that as I visit this sushi bar nearly every Saturday for the past 8 years I must like it. Its simple sushi on a conveyor belt with a number of other dishes that can be ordered from the kitchen. As with most sushi places in Johannesburg all the chefs are of Chinese origin and speak little english, but I never have to order , for when I sit down in the exact same spot every week I immediately get a plate of sashimi placed in front of me. Prices are well below all the other sushi places in Johannesburg so its good value
