Tatsuya, West Ryde

Tatsuya is my local favourite, owned by Koreans but provide really tasty Japanese food.

Tatsuya is distinctively attached to the petrol station in West Ryde. It's a little restaurant but is always full of customers. I suggest making a reservation if you want a guaranteed table.  Most people will order the sashimi or sushi platter (the deluxe platter is $38, top photo).

California roll ($12.90, above photos) is pretty good. While a fairly standard dish on most sushi menus, here it is done to a high standard. 

The spicy yakiniku ($14.90, below) only comes as a pork version. If you are looking for something less spicy, they offer a beef version without spice. Either way, it is quite a tasty dish, resembling something served on a hot plate (although this isn't obviously). Served with a small salad and bowl of rice on the side, it is quite a well balanced meal!

The plain udon ($9.90, below) is always a favourite. It is a great end to a long day. 

Flavoursome broth, filled with perfectly cooked udon noodles, some vegetables, and tempura for a bit of added interest. 

This dish goes amazingly well with a small sprinkling of Tetsuya's spice mix, which they supply in salt shakers on every table.

The regular sushi platter ($18.90, below) is a great set for those who want a bit of everything. You can see that you get a good mix of a variety of nigiri, as well as a tuna roll and inari. All the sushi is prepared to a high standard, and is very flavoursome! I love the ginger here.

The grilled salmon roll ($16.90, below) is also a great choice for a sushi roll. The grilled sushi (on top) and raw sushi (inside) offer a nice contrast of both flavours and textures. The mixture of sauces are also a good mix. Quite a tasty dish! I also quite like the age maki which is a fried seaweed and noodle dish. It provides a bit of crunch amongst all the sushi and sashimi delights.

Overall, Tatsuya is still a fantastic local option if you are looking for sushi in the West Ryde area.
