Sushi Rio, Chinatown Sydney

A short stroll away from the office, I have walked past Sushi Rio many times but I've never come in. I finally join them for lunch one workday after being enticed by their $3 sushi plate sign.
As I walk in, the staff seat me at the sushi train and advise me that all plates are $3 however if I ordered a plate from the screen then it would be $3.50. The first plate I pick up a simple salmon nigiri topped with raw onions, mayo and spring onions. I dab some wasabi on the salmon flesh and dip the sushi in the soy sauce.The sushi is tasty and fresh. 

I sit for a bit longer not seeing any other plates that I want so I finally settle on a prawn tempura sushi roll. It's a crunchy prawn roll that's topped with fish eggs. The sushi is nice and meets expectations. I think of all the sushi trains I've been to recently and this is probably on par with Sushi Hotaru.

I also grab a hot plate of takoyaki octopus balls. These are my favourite ! I love the potato and octopus combination with the bonito flakes on top. They satisfy and I decide to stop there.

Summary: Overall I enjoyed my experience at Sushi Rio. I'll definitely come back. I don't think it has as much choice as Sushi Hotaru but the sushi is fresh and tasty so I have no complaints.

Price: $3 per plate weekdays for lunch. I'll have to take note of any conditions next time I walk past.
