Sushi room is located on 12 Easton Ave, New Brunswick, NJ 08901, and I highly recommend it for a date night. There is other foods for non-sushi fans, and surprisingly not everything on the menu is Asian cuisine. However, be warned that the non-sushi foods are not as extensive as the options for sushi!
My boyfriend took me out to this restaurant today. The thing that made me fall in love with the place was the ambiance. The furnishing is modern, and the place is kept rather dark. However, there are retro-type lights that accent the furnishing, and a candle on each table (so romantic). The music is selection is also contemporary, but more of the very chill, good-vibe songs. It progressively gets louder in the restaurant as the bar fills up, but the intimacy I felt was still retained.
The food is well-portioned and delicious but NOT cheap- especially if you get sushi (sushi lovers know what I mean). However, it is definitely worth the price if you take advantage of the Sushi Bar Entrees! They’re like combos: you get a certain group of sushi and a choice of soup or salad. I ordered the Sushi Sashimi, which came with 5 pieces of sushi, 9 pieces of sashimi and any roll of my choice, valued at $10 or less. The sushi and sashimi were large, and I was able to select one out of many Special Rolls because many of them were $10. What made this entree worth it is the fact that the food I got should have been well over $50-$60. I got all that sushi and soup for $26. Yes, $26! As expected, presentation was delightful and the fish was high quality.
The staff is very nice and attentive there. I noticed even the diners were all kind and sociable. The people at the table next to me and my boyfriend watched a drunk couple walk by the glass windows with us, and we all laughed together.
This place was so nice, I felt this surge of thankfulness looking at my boyfriend. We usually are on our phones when we go to restaurants (lame, I know, but we’ve been dating for a while and are just used to doing it while we wait for food). Not at this place. We actually talked quite a lot to each other. To be honest, I cried at one point while eating (of happiness). If you’re in a rough spot with your significant other or if you need to reinvigorate your relationship, this place might do the trick. I even recommend going if you’re meeting someone for the first time or if you and your date just want another place to try out. Seriously, I had an amazing experience, and I hope you do too!
