ET Sushi

Nominated for Best Japanese Comments

With seating spilling out into Jumeirah Emirates Towers’ Shopping Boulevard, ET Sushi is a small, casual sushi joint suited to a quick lunchtime or evening bite, although its sleek, smart interior and high prices mean it’s unlikely to be an everyday destination for most. As you’d expect from the name, sushi is the menu’s main focus, with diners able to pluck masterful rolls from the conveyor belt or order their favourite makis à la carte, to the sounds of J-pop on the stereo and the latest Japanese animations on TV. Teppanyaki, salads and mains including delicious soft shell crab, wagyu beef, teriyaki dishes and noodles also make an appearance, but our recommendation is to stick with the signature sushi – all expertly-rolled creations with fresh, delightful flavours. Service is a little confused and could do with a bit of tweaking, but for a casual Japanese feast, ET Sushi won’t fail to deliver.
Open Sun-Thu noon-11.30pm; Fri and Sat 12.30pm-2.30pm, 7pm-11.30pm. Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Sheikh Zayed Road, www.jumeirah.com (04 319 8088).

I was there a couple of years ago and it was pretty good.
But when I went back last week it was very different than what I remembered. The sushi was just average, or even worse than average.
Even the simple things were not good. The quality of the salmon was not better than what you would get in a bento box at the supermarket, and even worse the tuna was not fresh at all, it was simply old and tasteless.
Also the service was totally disorganized.
And the wasabi ? It was just like in the time out review, dry and powdery. So we asked the waitress if she could bring us freshly made wasabi paste and she said "oh, you wanted the good wasabi? ok I'll bring you some", and she then brought us wasabi that was fine, not dry like what she served us at the beginning. What did she think ? That we would not want the good wasabi but the old and bad wasabi ?
The only good thing about the place is the modern decor.

I just looooove their sushi, but their kitchen food is hit and miss. I was shocked when my friend and I ordered teriyaki chicken and the chicken was deep fried. I have never had it like this before. The teriyaki sauce they slathered the greesy chicken pieces with tasted too strong as well. There tempura, however is yummy, though more expensive for what you get then at other restaurants.

But their sushi is top notch and I will go there any day if a friend who loves sushi will go with me. Unfortunately, I won't go with my husband and he always orders from the kitchen menu and he would be disappointed.
