Intro: My first visit to 壽司德is back in Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t prevent me for recalling my first encounter of this restaurant.
Environment: It’s very common in HK that quality JP restaurants will have their sushi bars dominate the main area. I recall there’re about 10 seats for sushi bar, ~3 4-person-table, plus two private rooms. You could tell the owner is aiming for quality, dedication, comfort and service for each customer over serving many people all at once. Being a sushi lover, I wouldn’t compromise to be sitting a table over the sushi bar. Two good reasons for that: you can check out what are fresh on that day and most importantly you don’t want to regret what you order =D. You could also check out what other customers have ordered. As expected, I made a reservation for sushi bar section as usual.
Sake: Being a sushi lover, checking out their sake inventory is inevitable. They do not have a large selection over there, but what they have should be good enough to satisfy general sake lovers. I ordered a bottle of Kubota “Manjyu”for that evening.
Food: I recall I ordered Toro, Hamachi, Hiame, Ebi (served miso soup for head), Kaki, Anago, Mirugai, Hotate, Tamago, Akimo and Uni etc. The food there was FRESH with no doubt. The manager confirmed us that all ingredients are directly imported from JP. Of course, they serve fresh ワサビ(wasabi) there.
Price: This is a reasonable restaurant for quality for food, comfort for environment and service for efficiency. First visit of damage for two: HK$2400- with a bottle of Manjyu with lots of sushi. Second visit of damage for two: HK$1400- with a small size of Hakkaisan with less sushi.
Service: Excellent, efficient, friendly. I had a chance to introduce myself being a first time visitor there, from OpenRice, on that evening and asking her for suggestion on that evening. She was extremely friendly and welcoming. If it wasn’t a Valentine’s Day, we would have sit there for the whole evening because that’s what I normally do =P. She also mentioned to us that their lunch menu is also a very good deal for the quality and service you get, but unfortunately, I was staying in HK for a week for Chinese NY during that time.
Note#1: I revisit this restaurant a few days after, and everything was just as good as my first visit.
Note #2: Sunday evening may not be a good day because they normally receive new inventory on Monday, Wed and Thursday.
