Kanzo Fresh Sushi, Parramatta

With Japanese food being our favour­ite cuisine, it’s fant­ast­ic hav­ing a place like Kanzo Fresh Sushi con­veni­ently loc­ated. It’s run by Koreans, but you won’t see any fusion hap­pen­ing here, and the prices are reas­on­able for tasty food. They recently ren­ov­ated, with the ori­gin­al store serving mostly take away.

We start by revis­it­ing the Salmon Lover Platter ($49.00) with 12 pieces of nigiri, 8 pieces of sashimi, 8 large rolls and 12 baby rolls.

The sal­mon is fresh and gen­er­ously sliced. While the rice could’ve used more vin­eg­ar, we par­tic­u­larly enjoyed the vari­ation in the rolls using avo­cado and cucum­ber. I’m not sure why there are wedges of lem­on.

For some vari­ety, we also try the Family Assorted Sushi ($49) with 29 pieces of nigiri and 8 mini rolls.

The tuna is so fresh that there’s none of that meaty fla­vour I usu­ally expect, while the sea­weed and ikura added great tex­tur­al and fla­vour vari­ations. D par­tic­u­larly enjoyed the seared sal­mon with its char­ac­ter­ist­ic smoky fla­vour, while N was pleas­antly sur­prised by the cooked tuna, even if it was a bit oily.

Two and a half years on, and Kanzo Fresh Sushi con­tin­ues to live up to its 4.2/5.0 rat­ing on Zomato.

Kanzo Fresh Sushi is loc­ated 6/​55 George St, Parramatta NSW 2150.
