The STK Group, who are the legends behind popular venues such as Hellenika, SK Steak & Oyster as well as the newly opened Sunshine, has just opened up their newest restaurant. Introducing Sushi Room, an intimate 60-seater specialising in fresh Australian seafood. The fine dining Japanese restaurant is now open at the Calile Hotel on James Street.
Sushi Room has a strong focus on fine produce, and as the name of the restaurant alludes to, you’ll find plenty of sushi and sashimi on the menu. Look out for the caviar Toro Toro sushi rolls, moriawase and lobster tempura, agemono traditional fried dishes, yakimono grilled dishes as well as caviar and oysters if you’re feeling extra fancy.
Though, if you’re a person who finds it hard to choose from an extensive menu, then not to worry. Leave it up to the chef’s recommendation instead with their Omakase offering. There’s also an Enkai set menu full of decadent delights.
As for drinks, you can opt for a sake pairing with your meal, or choose from a selection of Japanese-inspired cocktails, those which comprise of Japanese flavours such as shiso, yuzu and wasabi. If your taste buds are craving something familiar, then you can order whiskey and wine too.
According to owner Simon Gloftis, “Sushi Room will transcend existing Japanese dining offerings in every way – primarily due to the exceptional quality of the seafood we will acquire, the superior skills of Head Chef Shimpei Raikuni and the contemporary design of the tailored spaces – offering a new and somewhat unexpected interpretation of the theatre that is the preparation of traditional Japanese fare.”
The new restaurant is open Wednesday – Sunday for lunch and every night for dinner.
You can book a table online here.
