This small sushi restaurant has been at the corner of Blundell and No 2 for as long as I have lived in Richmond. It is very popular both for eat in and take away. In my opinion it is one of the best places in terms of sushi quality. Service can often get overwhelmed by the sheer level of demand. Even so, if I am in the neighbourhood close to meal times, I will still head there. If you are in the mood for something other than sushi then I recommend Nabeyaki Udon: the broth alone is worth travelling for - it seems to have some miraculous property that restores me when I am feeling less than cheerful.

By the way the selection above is my own choice of nigiri: their own combos work out a bit cheaper - this came to $13.72 with tax
