We have had takeaway from Torro Sushi before, but today was the first time I had eaten in the restaurant. They are located along Jalan Goutama, my favourite eating street in Ubud, Bali.
The sushi was quite dry, the rice had a little crunch to it, not moist as I was expecting. The Terriaki chicken dish was small, though the chicken was not too fatty and sauce as sweet and tasty.
The food is reasonably priced, not cheap. I would pay about the same for sushi back home in Australia. The staff seemed friendly enough, but looked pretty bored with the restaurant empty except for us. I have seen the place busy in the evenings when I have passed at other times.
The whole experience was unfortunately ruined when the staff tried to overcharge me. I had noticed that they were struggling to get the right change, so when they handed me my change with no comment, I was not surprised to see that it was short. They seemed surprised -“Oh, you want the right change?”. Yes, or at least tell me you did not have any small notes, and try and work it out. Of course they found the right notes when they tried harder.
The staff are young but always efficient and friendly. The restaurant covers three nationalities, Vietnamese, Thai and Japanese, and surprisingly seems to do all of them well. We have been to the Tao Cafe in Innaloo a couple of times. The restaurant is very family friendly, and provide regular table sitting, booths or you can sit along the sushi train. Our favourite entrees include the spicy Thai fish cakes, fresh Vietnamese rice paper rolls, and a plate or two from the sushi train. There are a few kids meals such as kung fu fried rice, but we prefer to let them choose a plate from the sushi train. All meals are of very decent size and the price is reasonable. For mains, we have not had a bad meal. You can eat around the world with the tom tum noodle soup (Thai), Pho tai (Vietnamese) and Chicken teriyaki (Japanese).

This place is always busy, so the sushi keeps coming freshly made. This Jaws Sushi Restaurant is located in the Hay Street Mall in Perth, Western Australia, and has been around for a long time. It can get very busy with the lunch time work crowd, so avoid the rush hour if you can. There are not a lot of sushi train restaurants around Perth so if you want that experience it is a good place to go. The mostly Japanese staff are happy and friendly. They offer what you expect for such a restaurant, with plates ranging from $3.10 to $6.80. There are a couple of other places in the Jaws chain around town that you should also check out – East Perth, Forrest Chase and London Court.
