SUSHI OYAMA: DECENT FOOD AT AFFORDABLE PRICE

Share on Google Plus

Sushi Oyama located on Kingsway and Royal Oak Avenue, is a converted heritage house featuring beautiful stone exterior on the outside and modern wooden decors on the inside. This beautiful restaurant was once operated as the Royal Oak Funeral Home until 1981.... Hmm I don't really mind as long as they give me good food! 
As all my friends know how much I love salmon sashimi, we had two orders of Salmon Sashimi 9pcs ($9.45). It had a nice, firm texture (3.5/5.0).
Salmon Eagle Eye ($2.95) was on their special menu on the day. It's a cute little item you can try out as an appetizer. The chopped scallop with tobiko was wrapped around with aburi salmon. It wasn't strong in terms of flavour but it definitely had that melting-in-the-mouth texture. *Don't get it if you don't like mayo (3.0/5.0).
We all wanted something special and unique, so we tried their Sushi Pizza ($10.40). It is basically the deep-fried rice topped with cucumber, avocado, masago and chopped spicy tuna & salmon, drizzled with spicy mayo and unagi sauce. Not a bad combination, but the rice was way too mushy and watery. It reminded me of that "failed" rice I made for the first time... (2.5/5.0).
Las Vegas Roll ($9.40) consisted of cream cheese, spicy salmon, crab meat, cucumber on the inside, then deep-fried, and topped with masago, bonito with 5 kinds of sauces. You don't want to try LV Roll until you finish all your sashimi or appetizers since this roll is very greasy, strong in terms of flavour and filling at the same time. It tasted average and again the rice was way too mushy and unappetizing (2.5/5.0).
Red Dragon Roll ($12.50) consisted of deep fried shrimp, crab meat, avocado on the inside, and wrapped with salmon sashimi on the outside. It was topped with bonito, masago, tobiko, spicy mayo and unagi sauce (3.0/5.0).
Everyone loved Oyama's Salmon Carpaccio ($9.95). Decent quality with good combination of the sauces. The salmon was seared to perfection! (4.5/5.0).
Sound Trap Roll ($9.40) consisted of cucumber, avocado, deep fried prawn on the inside, and topped with seared tuna (I believe it tasted more like toro), tempura bits and mayo (3.0/5.0).
