Well it seems that two sushi trains have opened up in Chatswood over the last couple of months to rival Makoto. One just outside Chatswood Chase, the other on the foodcourt level at the Mandarin Centre. I have yet to make my way to the one outside Chase but I did get the opportunity to try out Sagunja which is the one in Mandarin Centre.
All plates of sushi are $2.50 each including this seared salmon...
And this one with the scallops...they're all $2.50!
With 9 of us that night, here's what we ate! Trust me, we attracted more than enough attention with the two tables next to us each trying to compete for a taller stack and smiles all the way from the chef's making the sushi.
There's not a whole lot of seating around the sushi train. There's seating on the side which is probably a bit better if you're dining in a group.
Whilst most of us were amused by our sushi plate stack, the waitresses weren't quite so enthusiastic. Look at the concentration on their faces trying to pull the stack apart without knocking it over.A mighty fun night with plates of $2.50 sushi! Dinner ended up being about $15pp including hot green tea which I thought was a bargain. Notably, the size of the sushi is probably a tad smaller than what you'd expect at most other places but you're still getting value. For the amount we paid, we were all full on sushi (including the boys!) which is not something I can say about every sushi place. It was amusing building our sushi plate stack, we came in at just under 50 plates so I challenge you out there to build a bigger stack!
