SquareMeal Review of Mori Sushi St John's Wood

Mori’s line in ‘healthy Asian eating’ is tailor-made for time-pressed, calorie-conscious movers & shakers on London’s swishest high streets. The group’s attack is two-pronged: it gives them sushi, & it gives them frozen yoghurt. There are larger plates such as Thai green curry, chicken udon & peppered tuna salad too, but it’s the generous sushi boxes, maki rolls & fro-yo, abundantly topped with anything from goji berries to Reese’s Pieces, that sell it to the size-zero set. The bold, graphic look of the cafés is suitably current & cool for an eat-in experience, though much of Mori’s business is delivery (it covers vast tracts of the capital). Party boxes are a good shout for larger groups, especially when accompanied by an order of ice-cold Asahi.

My partner and I were in the area and desperate for something easy to eat, and being sushi and japanese food fans, this seemed like a reasonable option. We were however disappointed in every aspect. Despite its fairly nice trendy minimalistic look, the vegetarian maki were made with hard rice, and the “cucumber” bits were actually mostly skin with barely any flesh. The wasabi “mayo” portion was as minimalistic as the decoration and only allowed to season one and a half sushi. After enquiring about our hot dishes after a 30-minute wait, we were informed that the order had not been put through. When they came, the salmon teriyaki was bland and the tenderstem broccoli we merely steamed with a strange sauce on the side. As they were not chopped into manageable chunks, they were a little unwieldy for chopsticks. Other restaurants would have offered a complimentary dish or a discount on the bill… The cherry on the cake was the loud music, which, nice in nature, nevertheless made it impossible to hold a conversation. All in all very disappointing, and it put us off eating sushi for a while.

This restaurant is all about appearances. It does look nice and the food is nicely presented. However the taste and quality of the sushi's is only slightly better than Tesco's sushis and even Pret's sushi's are much better. The rice is hard, the tuna dry and tasteless and the salmon fat like the cheapest budget salmon. The hot dishes are very plain tasting. To summarize if you feel like Sushi's in St John's Wood take a tube to the nearest Itsu or the Japan Centre or many more Japanese restaurants but avoid Mori!
