Sushi Tie is an eating establishment that has been around for some time. The exterior has seen a face lift since I was last here and the dominant orange hue lends a dash of gaiety to the family sushi restaurant.
The interior looks pretty much the same as I remembered and the place was packed during lunch. The ambiance is preserved by the friendly staff who shout out a cheery “Irashaimasu!” upon the tinkling of the bell at the front door. I remember that part about Sushi Tie too.
Sushi Tie does not have a sushi train but makes up for their lack of locomotive conveyor belt action by offering an “open kitchen” of sorts, with their resident sushi chef making sushi and maki in the middle of the eating establishment.
I had iced Green Tea (RM 1.30) while my dining companion opted for the hot variety of the same.
This is the Shiro Maguro (Albacore tuna) sashimi that goes for RM 6. The sashimi here is just about the freshest you can get in Sibu.
We also ordered salmon sashimi (RM 6) and it came in nice chunky slices. I like thickly sliced sashimi. I’m not really a big fan of the thinly shredded stuff.
I also ordered the Unagi Set (RM 13.90). It came with rice, miso soup, deep fried tofu and watermelon.
I’m a big fan of eel. I love the rich, oily taste of the stuff. :)
Sushi Tie is a good place for Japanese food in Sibu. It’s marketed as a family restaurant and they don’t serve alcohol of any kind, so don’t go looking for Kirin here.
