Sushi is ultimate comfort food. What can beat the feeling of tasting the freshest sushi that melts in your mouth? Trying to locate the best sushi in Goa, we found ourselves at Yaki Zushi, a restaurant specializing in Oriental Cuisine located in an antique villa. The place is along the main road from Panjim towards Calangute, and can be easily spotted. As we pulled up, we had a little difficulty trying to find parking space, since the parking area gate was locked. So we parked across the street and entered this exotic Portuguese house.
The main door was shut and we entered from the side. The place was completely silent and we were wondering whether it’s open. I looked around and saw this brilliantly done place – everything was made of bamboo, it looked like a sushi mat. Literally. The weather was exceptionally good for a July afternoon, and the place emanated a great vibe.
We were soon ushered into the main restaurant by the waiters. As you cross a narrow alleyway, you pass by the exotic bar counter and tastefully done rooms. The entire villa is converted into a restaurant and each room and verandah provides ample sitting space. The tables are lined with metal cushioned chairs and the bar has high stools. The theme being red making the entire place seem very romantic. Great for a date. I’m sure the place will be lit up in the night and be even better. So if your partner is an Oriental food lover, you know where to head for your next date night!
The ambiance is particularly great – the place is silent since the main road is a few meters away. There is soft music playing in the background which is just appropriate to have a conversation and enjoy the music at the same time. The decor is really fancy. It has Asian themed decor with subtle fine details. The large Japanese hand fans on the wall caught my fancy. I love Japanese and Korean culture, so it was really great being at this place.
