Café Japan may not be the flashiest sushi joint in town, but it's undeniably one of the more polished when it comes to ozone-fresh seafood. Ignore the rather tired frontage and the utilitarian fittings; instead focus on the highly reasonable prices and the culinary action behind the counter. What the owners have saved on decorating, they seem to have invested in skilled sushi chefs who can slice and dice with the best. Everything is up to the mark for quality and presentation – from gomaae (spinach marinated in sesame sauce), fatty tuna sashimi or sea-bass nigiri to salmon, avocado and mayo inside-out rolls or hot dishes such as crispy soft-shell crab or grilled butterfish teriyaki. The place is rated highly by the local Japanese community (always a good sign), and bills are gratifyingly low.
