SquareMeal Review of Sticks 'N' Sushi

The Sticks 'n' Sushi chain goes from strength to strength, with sites springing up across the capital and praise galore for "inventive" and "sensational" food. The success is down to its reliably top-notch sushi and yakitori – "little sticks of heaven" – chosen from a beautifully photographed menu that's bound to make your mouth water. There's real artistry in the presentation too: sashimi, nigiri and colourful maki rolls sit like jewels on dark slates, while grilled morsels are skewered with perfect symmetry. Our favourites include miso black 
cod dragon roll, tempura shrimp temaki, and beef with crunchy chilli and garlic. Smaller, cheaper bites and healthy Asian salad bowls are also on offer, alongside a drinks selection that takes in saké, artisan teas and craft beers. Factor in reliable service and stylish Scandinavian design (the chain launched in Copenhagen) for 
a genuinely memorable experience.

Japanese restaurateurs take note. There is a new style of Japanese restaurant that has recently arrived in the UK and it is terrific. Innovative and delicious, not one of the dishes disappointed. It’s like a cheaper version of Nobu. However, I would advise checking out the menu online before going as it can be overwhelming and confusing. Despite this, there are a lot of very bright and cheerful staff on hand to assist in your choices. We had two starters including a cauliflower dish which was a revelation, followed by a carpaccio of salmon with a lime marinade and then ended with four different ‘sticks’ of just heavenly gorgeousness. The service and atmosphere great and on Sue’s noise meter for being able to conduct a conversation with your companions, it was a 7/10 which isn’t bad. Will I go back? You bet!

I'd heard a lot of good things about Sticks n Sushi, I was apprehensive that a dutch restaurant would be able to win me over on Sushi - but they absolutely have! The restaurant is really cleverly designed in what is essentially a narrow long room with two entrances each side of Covent garden, all the table are well spaced and great for sharing. Sticks n Sushi is one of the only restaurants that has nailed printing photos of the food on the menu......most other places that do this are really only doing it so drunk-you doesn't have to try and read what kebab or pizza you want, you can just point and pay! But everything that looks fabulous on the menu at Sticks n Sushi....tastes just as fabulous on your plate at Sticks n Sushi and I was ever so relieved, as we ordered a lot. It's hard not to when everything looks so good so if you are watching the wallet - perhaps go with one of their set menus (we had the Monte Carlo) and you can get a bit of everything. (we then obviously ordered more to be greedy!) I preferred the sushi overall to the sticks -but the highlight was the Rib-eye beef with Japanese barbecue marinade - SO GOOD. They even take the simple stuff to a new level - grilled edamame beans tossed in soy, ginger & garlic was a game changer. I am so happy I've found this gem and I can't wait for my trousers to get a little looser so I can go back, order everything again and start the circle all over again.
