My girlfriend and I visited the new Sushi Oyama in Coquitlam, where it used to be a Korean restaurant called “Golden Onion”. It was very nicely renovated and if you go in by Oct.8th.2012 you will receive 15% off anything you order on the menu.
The waterfall was especially eye-catching when we walked in.
A fairly spacious waiting area.
Now I almost get the chopped scallop roll wherever I go, so I’m definitely an expert when it comes to this roll. However, this was a little upsetting. The chopped scallop were more like smashed scallops, similar to the one at Sushi California. That was not my biggest concern, my biggest concern was the rice. There was just too much rice. And the rice was a little smushy.
The nigiri sushi combo was quite the variety, included 8 nigiri’s and 3 salmon and 3 tuna rolls. The nigiri’s were also quite huge in size. They weren’t the freshest, but presentation was definitely quantity over quality. The amebi had no fresh taste to it and the tako was very chewy.
The Sushi Pizza caught our eyes when we glimpsed through the appetizers. It’s a deep fried rice on top with chopped spicy tuna & salmon with cucumber, avocado and masago. Finally, drizzled with their special sauce. It’s quite creative and it’s got a very warm texture to it because of the deep fried rice on the bottom and salmon and tuna sashimi chopped up on the top.
With a 15% discount on their grand opening, our total bill came to just over $26. First things first, the ambiance was very nice. The prices were pretty average among similar sushi places in its class. The food was mediocre at best, I would’ve liked it if their food was on par with their ambiance. Service was alright, we didn’t run into much trouble. But we did have to wave our arms before they noticed us. Will we be back? Maybe.
