One of my best friends, Prowsey is a huge sushi fan. That girl can eat sushi for breakfast, lunch and dinner, 7 days a week. So it was no surprise when she suggested we visit Rapa for dinner one Friday night.
Rapa is located in the leafy North Shore suburb of Wahroonga. It’s a little hard to find if you don’t know where it is. There is plenty of off-street parking and other little restaurants and cafes around that you might want to check out as well.
The tables and chairs inside are quite basic and the decor is nothing special, but it is clean and welcoming.
Service was quite good. They were quite friendly and nice although they did take a while to come over and get our orders.
As Prowsey is a regular at Rapa the staff gave us free Edamame beans to munch on while we waited for food, and free green tea to sip on after dinner.
We had some miso soup to begin with, and I have to say that it was probably the best miso soup I have ever had. Absolutely delicious and perfectly salted.
We ordered some pork gyoza as well, which was well-presented and moist on the inside- a great entree. It came with a sort of soury sweet sauce which was a little spicy.
Finally we ordered a medium sushi and sashimi platter. This was the star of the show, carefully and meticulously laid out on a beautiful fan-shaped platter, it was edible art. It contained a variety of fish-based items which included salmon, prawn and tuna.
The food was very fresh and so tasty. We managed to finish the whole platter between the two of us.
Overall the food was delicious and service was good. I would definitely come here again some time.
The whole meal came to about $30 each which is good value for such a delicious spread.
Overall I would rate my dining experience (out of 10):
- Service- 7
- Food- 7
- Ambience- 6
- Value – 6.5
