Who would’ve thought that a tiny sushi bar, tucked deep in the unassuming Sheza Tower Hotel, past the Seafood Market, beyond a number of farcically clueless hostesses, is a haven of incredibly fresh fish. And by fresh we mean morsels of gorgeous, fleshy, inexplicably soft salmon, tuna and eel, all served with simple elegance in surprisingly large portions.
Try the salmon sashimi, the mount fuki maki (packed with shrimp, avocado and cucumber) and the Japan sunrise maki (cucumber, avocado and mayonnaise wrapped in rice seaweed and salmon), all of which is heaving with flavour and fine textures. And if, between negotiating your chopsticks around a sushi roll and sitting back to enjoy Fuji’s views of the Diplomatic Area of Manama, you hear the strange sound of an Asian voice belting Western music, rest assured you aren’t losing your mind.
By the entrance of the first floor is a three-piece band, one male singer (and his guitar) and two female musicians, all of whom help create a very pleasant, if slightly comical ambiance.
