Sushi E

It might be that frisson of nightclub fun about the attractive staff. Or its location on the chichi Hemmesphere level of the Establishment complex. Maybe it's just the excellent fish, sushi made to order and the high-grade, beautifully marbled wagyu beef. Whatever, Sushi E has remained a popular stalwart of the Merivale stable for good reason. The signature salmon sashimi tartare dressed with glinting salmon roe that pops like bubble wrap is a perfect temperature; two scallop nigiri, lightly blowtorched, are superbly tender; and a Balmain bug roll offers a masterful interplay of textures and flavours. Okay, so you could hash-tag the matcha parfait (green tea ice-cream, red bean paste, amaretto sponge) as #noteveryonesideaofdessert but we love its smoky, savoury notes. The bar and fit-out seem a little tired but no one notices. Service is smoothly pitched to the mostly suit-with-phone-in-hand audience.
