Sushi U is located in the Parkcrest Mall near Buy Low Foods along Broadway, just up from Holdom in Burnaby. It’s a quieter area just east of Brentwood with ample parking! The restaurant is small but has a large selection of specialty rolls and mostly sushi.
From the specialty roll section, we tried the Black Ninja Roll and it did not disappoint! The Black Ninja Roll has ebi, avocado, and tuna on the inside and seared tuna, crunchy bits, and special sauce on top. It was very smooth and the sauce had a slight spicy kick to it. The combination of ingredients made it very flavourful. It also says on the menu that it has black rice, however it wasn’t clear what this meant…. perhaps slightly seared?
We ordered the BC Combo, which came with a BC Roll, 2 Salmon Nigiri, 2 Tuna Nigiri, and 2 Ebi Nigiri. The BC Roll was definitely above average when compared to other restaurants but we thought the roll was a bit small for the price.
For the vegetarian options, we started with the a specialty roll called the Victoria Roll. It has yam tempura inside with avocado and unagi sauce on the top. It was a very fancy yam tempura roll and was very nice and flavourful.
The other vegetarian rolls that we tried included the Avocado and Cucumber Roll and the Vegetable Roll. Both were great and above expectations. The presentation of the Vegetable Roll was cute!
The atmosphere was nothing special and the room is quite small. The service was great and quite quick, however we ate just before the dinner rush and before they were busy. Parkcrest mall has a huge parking lot, which makes it really easy to park compared to some of the other places at the nearby Holdom Station or near Brentwood Mall.
Overall, we really enjoyed the food and felt it was a great place to have good quality food quickly before heading to another event.
