Jordon and I went out to New Island Sushi on Friday. The food wasn’t bad but the cost was and we left unimpressed considering many said it was the best Sushi in Saskatoon.
The food is passable and is better than some other sushi places in Saskatoon. Compared to other markets, it really is mediocre.
Mediocre is what the restaurants strives for. Dirty washrooms, poorly maintained booths (ours had the paint worn off) and broken fixtures like the busted blinds we looked at all meal. Also most of our dishes had chips in them.
It’s part of their business model but having to pay for refreshment refills despite the salty food (in part from the soy sauce) and dry rice set the tone for a really mediocre lunch.
There is good sushi in Saskatoon, it just isn’t found at New Island Sushi.
