Back in Berlin Zoe and I attempted to find a Sticks’n’Sushi however we got lost and so we made an executive decision that the next time we were in London together it was somewhere we had to go. A short 5 months later our plans finally came true and we for sure made the most of it.
There are a total of 8 Sticks’n’Sushi’s around London however Zoe took me to the one in Canary Wharf as it’s the closest one to her apartment. We went at lunch time so it was pretty quiet but considering we (mainly me) were slightly hungover this was quite ideal.
The restaurant was very minimalist, modern and had a clean finish. There was a mix of normal seating arrangements, high tables, bar seats and there was also 5/6 tables outdoors if you fancied it!
What We Ordered
The menu was quite straight forward with a good selection of sushi dishes, ‘sticks’ and platters with both. We spent a good 15-20 minutes trying to decided what to go for, it just all sounded so good!
The first thing we opted for was the Beef Tataki. This is not a dish that everyone is a fan of consisting of; Beef, smoked cheese, spring onion, tosazu, spicy goma & jerusalem artichoke chips. Honestly Beef Tataki is my absolute favourite if I ever visit Yo Sushi so having it from here was just so much better. 10/10!!
In terms of Maki we decided to go for 8 pieces of Spicy Tuna Maki and 6 pieces of the Crunchy Chicken Maki. Both tasted absolutely amazing – very fresh and packed with flavour. They both had the right balance of spice that didn’t blow your head of but you definitely felt the kick. I would fully recommend the both of them.
Of course we had to order some sticks too. We decided to chose two each to get a good sample of them. Zoe opted for the Aigamo (Duck hearts & teriyaki) and the Tebasaki (Chicken wings & lemon). I went for the Momo Chili (Chicken, chili dip, teriyaki & spring onion) and the Ika Tori (Chicken and squid sausage & miso aïoli).
Neither of us had any complaints about these. My personal favourite was definitely the Ika Tori. It was incredibly confusing but I would absolutely order it again next time I’m there!
By this point we had spent a super cool £60 which meant it was definitely time to go!
My Overall Thoughts
Sticks’n’Sushi is absolutely amazing. The food is cooked fresh and the flavours are incredible but just be aware that it is not cheap. It’s outright expensive! It isn’t somewhere that I would go on a regular basis but I’d definitely go for special occasions.
If you’re a true sushi lover and you don’t mind parting with the cash then I would absolutely recommend visiting one of their restaurants – you won’t be disappointed!
