Fresh Fish Quick: Sushi GardenMarch 27, 2013
Back in the summer of 2012, I was down in Vancouver and Seattle, which gave me plenty of opportunity to indulge in amazingly fresh fish and sushi. A favourite restaurant amongst my family members is Sushi Garden out in Burnaby - I had never been there before, and was excited to see what the place was all about.
Sushi Garden - 4635 Kingsway - Burnaby, BC
California Roll & Chopped Scallop Roll
Smoked Salmon Roll, House Roll & Dynamite Roll
Assorted Sushi: Salmon, Tuna, Ebi, Unagi, Tobiko, Chopped Scallop
As there were 6 people eating, we ordered the Large Party Tray meant for 3 people ($38), which had five different rolls and an assortment of sushi. Honestly, this tray could feed four people, and it did, because of each item having rice associated with it. The rolls were huge, and freshly made as indicated with the warm rice. All the fish was quite fresh, and everyone was happy with the portion size. If only Edmonton could do the same!
In the end, the meal came in to under $60 for a group of 6 people to be satisfied, which is seriously unheard of over here in Edmonton. While there wasn't anything very unique, their combinations are full of value. Service is quick, but the efficiency of the workers at Sushi Garden compromises the amount of time spent at the table with customers, and therefore there isn't much service. Don't expect good service, but expect fresh fish, and big bang for your buck! If you don't want to wait in line, there is also the option to order take out, which actually can get you a discount if you order far enough in advance of your pick up time. If I lived down in Burnaby, I would definitely consider this option!
