Review: Sushido, Sutton Coldfield

By Thefoodiecoupleblog

When you find a new localish restaurant that you LOVE, and end going three times in as many weeks (quite an achievement with a 7 month old!) it’s very exciting. Well, that’s exactly whats happened with Sushido, the new Sushi and Noodle Bar in Sutton Coldfield.

Review: Sushido, Sutton Coldfield

Great sushi is few and far between in this area, there’s a couple of decent places now in the city center – Sushi Passion being the best so finding somewhere good close to home is a real win. As well as a long list of sushi rolls, sashimi and nigiri, they do noodle dishes, rice dishes and a few specials too. They also do take out. This could be dangerous.

The first time we went we just had sushi and then the following times have tried a few hot dishes too. My only small complaint is that the range of fish they use is a little limited – salmon, tuna, eel and prawn. I would like to see some other fish options like seabass or yellowtail. If it was purely a sushi bar, this might be more of a problem, but due to the hot options it’s much less so.

Over our visits we’ve tried:

  • Avocado Cucumber Maki  – Avocado, Cucumber and Japanese Mayonnaise
  • Mango Cucumber Maki – Mango, Cucumber and Japanese Mayonnaise
  • Spicy Tuna Maki  – Inside-out roll with Chilli Tuna, Avocado, Cucumber, Spring Onion with toasted Sesame Seeds
  • Tuna Teriyaki Maki – Pan fried Tuna, Teriyaki sauce, Asparagus and Lettuce
  • Salmon Mango Maki – Pan fried Salmon in Mango Juice, Asparagus and Lettuce
  • Tuna Sashimi
  • Chicken Pad-Thai – Steamed Breast Chicken, Rice Stick Noodles, Egg, Asian vegetables, Fried Tofu wok tossed in Pad-Thai sauce and Crushed Roasted Peanuts
  • Prawn Tempura

Our absolute favorite is the Spicy Tuna Maki – really amazing, but all the sushi was really good. It still doesn’t beat Sushi Passion but it’s doing a great job! All the food is prepared fresh, and you can see the sushi chef working and preparing your order behind the sushi bar.

Lee adored the Pad Thai, naming it one of the best he has had and the tempura batter on the prawns was amazing too.

This place is fast becoming our new favorite haunt and its pretty well priced too – definitely one worth trying out!

Child Friendly? So-so. We haven’t taken the pram in as theres a huge step up from the pavement through the front door, and its pretty small too with only about 6 booths and then the sushi bar too. If you’re little ones big enough for a highchair though it would be fine – we have our own high chair and we take it in – the Phil & Teds Lobster (see below) but I’ve not actually seen any highchairs in there so you’d have to check if they have any. They do have a decent changing table in one of the toilets though so you’re sorted on that front.
