Found right next to Ikea, Sushi Wawa is one of Perth’s most popular sushi train restaurants. As we walk in, we are greeted by a cheery “Irasshaimase” by the staff, which is a traditional Japanese welcome. The restaurant is decked out in bold orange and images of “Bob” their cartoon sumo wrestler. There are many booths around the rectangular open kitchen, in the centre of the dining room. The 62 meters long train moves around it. At the time of opening (2014) it was thought to be the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.
My husband and I had never experienced a sushi train before, and visited with our foodie daughter. We were mesmerised by the chefs busily making different types of sushi, sashimi, and hot and cold dishes.
We sit in a cosy booth and the sushi train runs past the end of the table carrying sushi and other Japanese treats. There’s also chopsticks, soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger to add to your dishes.
The way it works is simple, there are different coloured plates, each colour is code for a different price (plates range from $3.50 to $8.90). Just grab whatever takes your eye!
We start with nibbles, crisp lotus leaf.
And pop edamame (soy beans) into our mouths – both these dishes are very more-ish.
Besides the sushi, we didn’t recognise a lot of items, so we play it safe with a square sushi roll that is filled with Chicken Katsu.
Next we enjoyed the salmon and avocado sushi.
One of Sushi Wawa’s creations, The COB is a sushi roll filled with cream cheese, onion and beetroot. We grab another plate it’s so tasty!
My husband loved the salmon aburi, which is lightly torched salmon on rice.
The pork dumplings were absolutely delicious too.
After we’d collected a stack of colourful plates, we wave over a smiley waitress who counts up our plates and we pay the bill, which comes in at under $50 for three adults.
Sushi Wawa is also child friendly. There is a kid’s zone, with a TV and play area. It is also open for dinner and offers BYO.
We absolutely loved our first sushi train experience. It was a lot of fun (I even tried chopsticks!) and the food was so tasty and great value for money.
