FOOD:

Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

The food is all rea­son­ably priced and there is a range of dishes to choose from, cater­ing par­tic­u­larly well for the take­away clien­tele with meals al­ready boxed up on the counter ready to grab in a hurry. Mum and I or­dered a se­lec­tion to share - roasted eel on rice, $15; sal­mon don, $15; chicken katsu (large), $14; prawn curry (large) $14; four fried dumplings, $5; edamame beans (young soy beans), $3.50; chicken teriyaki, $8; and a seaweed salad, $4. We were hun­gry. Mum and I had never tried eel be­fore and were shocked at how ten­der and flavour­some it was. The seaweed salad was a re­fresh­ing, cleans­ing side dish and ex­tremely tasty. We could not fault any of the dishes. They were brought out quickly, cooked per­fectly and por­tion sizes were ad­e­quate. Our only crit­i­cism was how they were served to us. I would have ex­pected the dishes to be served on plates. The ma­jor­ity

was brought out in take­away bowls. I also thought they needed a self-serv­ing wa­ter op­tion some­where or a bot­tle or jug of wa­ter with glasses. We asked for wa­ter and we got card­board cups filled with wa­ter brought to us. De­spite that small crit­i­cism - as we had or­dered so much the take­away bowls came in handy. and mother as we walked into Sushi Katsu in Cromwell. It is eas­ily spot­ted across the road from New World and has easy park­ing. The restau­rant is open plan with sev­eral ta­ble and bar stool din­ing op­tions.

The build­ing used to house a video store and it has been trans­formed into a light, spa­cious, func­tional and ca­sual eatery. Cromwell is short of mul­ti­cul­tural cui­sine, and there is ob­vi­ously a de­sire for it, as Sushi Katsu is busy. on the chop­sticks packet. The lack of wa­ter was the only let-down (though there was a fridge to pur­chase drinks).
