Japanese Cuisine: Four Options In Avalon 

Japanese Cuisine: Four Options In Avalon Beach

Avalon Beach residents hunger for Japanese food may be indicated in the fact that there are four restaurants serving this cuisine, all of which have been open for a while, over a decade in two cases, and you can now also buy another version of Japanese food in the supermarket.

Ninja Japanese Restaurant in Macmillan Court always serves the very finest fresh fish creations and is among our favourites.

Recently renovated, the newly framed wall of photographs of happy diners bears testament to many happy younger customers.

Serving Sashimi and Sushi, Agadashi Tofu or Noodle soups you will struggle to finish, along with dishes to suit the younger palate – prawns, Teriyaki Chicken and ‘California’ rolls, and prices starting from $3.00 for those on a family budget, this is the 'let's eat now' alternative that will remain popular in the village.

Agadashi Tofu - Sushi Train

Eunhee (Sylvia) always greets everyone dining with a lovely smile and will ask the chefs to quickly make up a fresh dish of your choosing. Sushi Train also offer a Take Away menu and larger 'Sets' for when having friends over.

These are all great Japanese restaurants, with great specialties to suit every age group and dining experience. We'll continue to visit each but when we have little mouths that want food immediately, and will gain by choosing their own tastes, we take them to the Sushi Train - it's a toy, it's fresh food, it's where you can feed them and get them home before they get too tired.
