Sokyo Review

Located inside The Star in Sydney is Sokyo, a lively and causal sushi restaurant. The restaurant has a chic interior, and while the seats were not overly comfortable the food made up for this. If you like sushi, you will be more than impressed with Sokyo.

We started the evening off with cocktails. Ordering ‘The Hipster’, mixed with Fair Quinoa Vodka, Fair Goji, Aloe Vera and Cranberry. I wasn’t sure how it would go down before trying it, but after trying it I can confirm it’s delicious. My partner ordered a ‘chasing Kojima’, made with Yuzu Sake, Pink Grapefruit, Lemongrass and Elderflower. Another interesting mix that made for an enjoyable cocktail.

We ordered a bottle of Barone Ricasoli ‘Brolio’ Chianti Classic, Tuscany, 2012. An intense ruby red wine with chocolate and spicy notes, perfect with sushi.

“This is sushi at its finest.”

To begin we ordered Beef Wagyu Robata Swekers Tri-tip, with Caramelised shallots, BBQ Teriyaki and Prawn Robata Sweker, the perfect start to our evening. We also ordered Prawn Robata Skewers with Chili Garlic, Mizuna, and Spicy Ume Kosho to try a spicier dish and equally as delicious.

You can’t visit a sushi restaurant without trying the sushi, So we ordered Tuna Crispy Rice, prepared with Spicy Tuna, Spicy Mayo, and Crispy Hokkaido "Yumepirica" rice. The sushi is absolutely divine, the flavours complimented each other very well. We also ordered Salmon Belly Aburi and Spicy Daikon Oroshi, again a taste of perfection.

For main course we ordered Riverina Lamb Rump, served with Shiso Salsa Verde, warm Eggplant Salad, and Gomo Ponzu. The Lamb couldn’t have tasted any better, and the salad was crisp and well presented. We also ordered O'connor Premium Pasture fed Beef Tenderloin with braised Japanese Mushrooms Scorched cos Lettuce, and Katsuobushi. The katsuobushi was delicious and complimented the beef very well.

This is sushi at its finest, a must for all sushi lovers, it’s a great way to spend the evening in Sydney.
