We've eaten at Sushi Bang for years. Its longevity is a testment to its speed, service and menu. Whether it's takeout (even large drop-in orders are processed fast in front of your eyes ... within 15 minutes) or eat-in, their food has always been fresh, fast, very decently priced (read as: amazingly affordable!) and the service impeccable.
The "plain jane" interiors have been given a facelift. Gone are the old white walls with their large, homely, handwritten menus. Now visitors will be greeted by new warm red-and-black walls, new black bistro-style chairs and matching tables plus a completely redone washroom to boot.
There are now also smaller menus tacked to the wall showing all new, esoterically-named sushi creations (all look very appetizing) plus all the old ones familiar to patrons of this 20-something-year old establishment.
Did I mention that this is one of the sushi restaurants we've gone to that use real crab (not pollock) too?
With all the recent commercial development in the area plus the 2010 Olympics just around the corner, Sushi Bang is ready (inside and out) to introduce the world to sushi that tastes good AND won't cost an arm and a leg.
The question is, how long will the queues around the block be?
