The other day when I went to work, one of my co-workers were raving about this sushi place located in Richmond called Gami Sushi. My co-worker is within the older range of age but still rather picky so I decided to trust his opinion and go try this place out. This sushi restaurant is located on No.3 & Williams and it’s part of this huge plaza filled with other vendors, so finding a parking spot is not an issue.
When I first stepped in, I was pretty impressed with the decor. Their interior design incorporated darker brick, wooden tables and really nice wall paneling with a good visual of the television too! By the time I got there, my bros already sat down, so I didn’t have to wait or anything.
I actually went a second time with Phil the other day during dinner hours and they require you to write down your name on this white board which is located on the left hand side when you first enter in to the restaurant. So if you are walking in, please don’t forget to jot down your name, otherwise you might not be seated for a long time. This restaurant is small but they can still manage to sit approximately 40 people within the restaurant. They have 3-4 booth seating along the right hand side of the wall and the rest are just regular table seating. Also, during dinner hours they do get pretty busy so if you don’t want to wait, you can always order take out. They offer a 10% discount if you order take out too!
We ordered the Chicken Karage ($6.25). I feel like the flavor was average and could’ve used a bit more flavor. This Chicken Karage is not boneless, so it is chicken wings and drums.
For sushi rolls, we ordered Oshinko Roll-pickled radish ($2.25), Negitoro Roll ($2.95) & Salmon Avocado Roll ($3.95).
Alaska Roll ($4.75)
Chopped Scallop Roll ($4.45)
For all their regular rolls, I thought they were average.
We decided to order one of their special rolls to try. So we ended up ordering the Pop Corn Attack Roll ($8.95), which came with deep fried chopped scallops, prawn tempura, cucumber, avocado, crispy yam & potato with sauce on top. This was by far the best dish we ordered that day. It was so flavorful and all ingredients just worked really well together.
