The other day while looking for the Film Museum in Covent Garden, my friend and I stumbled upon this restaurant called Sticks ‘n’ Sushi. What attracted us to it wasn’t only the fact that it was sushi and Japanese food, but it was sushi “with a Nordic taste”. Sushi with a Nordic taste? Never heard of that. So of course I had to give it a try!
The restaurant itself is quite glamorous and trendy looking. There’s even a bar where a waiter makes cocktails for you (for those of you that enjoy a bit of a drink 😉 ). As you enter the restaurant you’re greeted by almost each member of staff with a really interesting attempt of いらっしゃいませ (irrashaimase) – none of the staff are Japanese. Which is not a problem of course, but I’ll have to admit their pronunciation was a little bit funny ^ ^ (Not that my Japanese pronunciation is amazing either). All of the staff members were absolutely lovely, helpful and really cheerful though, and created a really a great atmosphere.
The menu had so much to offer! And to be honest we probably would have spent a lot longer trying to choose if we hadn’t restricted ourselves by price. Yes, the food was amazing, but so were the prices! Still worth it though 😀
Our absolute favourite though, wasn’t the sushi, but a meatball chicken yakitori skewer! I cannot begin to describe how good it tasted. Let’s just say I would’ve gladly ordered 10 more plates 😉
All in all I really liked this restaurant, and would love to go back. I wouldn’t make it a regular trip though, as unfortunately it’s quite pricey ~~; But I do recommend you go at least once ^^ There’s a branch in Covent Garden and one in Wimbledon. If you do go, or have been, let me know what you thought!
