We’d tried to check out Ginger Sushi a few months ago but they were randomly closed. They’re a Korean run Japanese sushi spot next door to Tandoori Palace.
We dropped in on a Friday evening (around 7:30pm) and it was busy. There’s only 6 tables inside so it’s a tight squeeze. Service was friendly and our tea was refilled several times.
The menu is massive; appetizers, salad & soup, tempura, sashimi, nigiri, noodles, teriyaki, donburi, rolls, combos, bento boxes and party trays. Some of their combo options are ridiculously cheap. $8.50 for 22 pieces is crazy.
Again, way too much rice and the slices of fish oddly didn’t even stick to the rice. The only enjoyable ones were the tamago and scallop.
The rest were either not torched enough or torched too much. You’re better off eating at Green Leaf Sushi for aburi.
Aburi hamachi oshi sushi ($11.00)
Hamachi, garlic and ginger with soybean sauce. This very well may be one of the worst pressed sushi’s I’ve had in my life. The hamachi was beyond dry; we were stumped how it could have been so bad. The slices of garlic were also an odd topping choice. So bad we didn’t even want to finish them. Terrible.
Don’t bother with any of GS’s aburi or oshi options.
