[Closed] Sushi Dragon

without comments

I had a major craving for sushi one night but didn’t want to make the long trek out to Richmond Hill/Markham. Having already tried Sushi-Ya, Mr and I decided to try Sushi Dragon, which was right across the street.


The Atmosphere

There’s lots of table space inside so you feel comfortable, not cramped. When we went (around 6:30pm on a weeknight), there was only 2 other tables with patrons there dining. Good thing or bad thing? We were promptly seated with tea brought to our table.


The Food

Sushi Dragon - miso soup and salad
Salad and Miso Soup – complimentary

The salad came in a chilled bowl, which meant one of two things: a) the bowl is pre-chilled and they added salad to it to keep it nice and cold, or, b) salad bowls are pre-made and sitting in the fridge waiting to be served. There was nothing special about the salad, as it is strikingly similar to the bagged salads you can purchase at Costco. Iceberg lettuce tossed with slivers of carrot and red cabbage. The miso soup was mildly better, with lots of little cubed tofu and seaweed.


Sushi Dragon - japanese fried chicken wings
Japanese style chicken wings – 10 for $10.95

For our appetizer, we ordered the Japanese style chicken wings. According to our waiter, it is a special and many customers love it, so we decided to try it out. Skip this – it’s not worth it. It’s basically fried chicken wings that are smothered in sweet chilli sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds and parsley flakes.


Love Boat – $45.95

This was what I was waiting for – Love Boat. I didn’t care much for the maki, but all I wanted was loads of sashimi and some sushi. After scouring the menu, this was the best option without breaking the bank. It’s supposed to come with 14 pieces of maki (I know, there’s only 12 in the picture but I didn’t noticed it until I double checked their menu online), 14 pieces of sushi, and 14 pieces of sashimi. The sashimi and sushi are pretty decent with fairly thick cuts and small amounts of rice. The maki was california roll (not bad) and spicy tuna maki (too much spicy mayo).


The Verdict

It’s not the best place to go to but if you’re desperate for a sushi craving, it’s ok. Skip the appetizers and just go for sashimi and sushi. If you’re a stickler for high quality sushi, you’re better off making the trek out to Richmond Hill/Markham.
