I returned again to Mizuya, this time with MDS and another friend, Nicole.
The atmosphere and service were much the same as last time and I didn’t notice many changes since then.
MDS, Nicole and I ordered a mocktail each from the drinks menu. Mine was a delicious mango and strawberry crush which tasted so refreshing! MDS ordered a passionfruit and mint one and Nicole got a mango and soy milk drink which, we were surprised to find, was delicious!
First out of the kitchen was the pork gyoza. Delicious and with a crisp, brown side, it had a bit of a charred flavour which was great with the pork filling.
Next we received our soft shell crab. MDS hadn’t tried this before and really enjoyed it. The crab was quite salty, very crunchy and so delicious. This is one of my favourite dishes as I love shellfish, and it was cooked quite well so I was happy.
Next out was the sushi. We ordered salmon and avocado rolls, which MDS refused to eat, and tempura prawn rolls. Both were fresh, very well presented, and delicious.
I really admire the Japanese chef’s technique and presentation skills. For me, they are probably some of the best around!
We received our bowls of steamed rice (about a cup of rice in each) and decided to order the chicken teriyaki. It came out as a small piece of chicken, which turned out to be plenty for the three of us. The skin was covered in a shiny teriyaki glaze, and the chicken was garnished with some bean sprouts and mixed vegetables. The chicken was tasty, moist and cooked through although the teriyaki flavour wasn’t very prominent.
Overall we paid $25.00 each including drinks.
Overall I would rate my dining experience (out of 10):
- Service- 3
- Food- 8
- Ambience- 7
- Value – 8
A bit of an improvement on value and service since last time as we had a little more interaction with the staff.
