A fun and delightful sushi dining experience!

Sushi U was chosen as a go to place for lunch. We arrived and found a parking spot near the restaurant a few minutes before its opening time of 11 am. Staff warmly-welcomed us inside.  We (threesome) were shown to a larger, corner table, provided menus, place settings, and then brought some large mugs of hot tea to enjoy while we pondered what to order.

It's a small place, clean, neat, and tidy in appearance. The tables are arranged around the perimeter, and most can be moved and re-arranged to accommodate from one and two diners, to small-sized groups.    

Our server was a delight during our visit, and took good care of us.            

The food: note:  I thought my ordering was likely a little heavy for the three of us, but with it being a first time visit, I wanted to try a number of dishes, and it worked well - with a few leftovers to bring home, but most dishes cleared.  Hot tea (a light & flavourful blend) was supplied at no extra charge.

— Appetizers:  geso karage (breaded squid tentacles), coroke (breaded potato croquette), ebi (prawn) gyoza — Noodle:  veggie yaki soba (soba noodles, w/mostly bean sprouts and small pieces of cabbage, a few green beans and carrot pieces) — Teriyaki:  tofu teriyaki (deep fried tofu, w/teriyaki sauce, on a bed of bean sprouts and a little rice) — Donburi:  chirashi don (assorted sashimi, on mostly shredded daikon and a tossed green salad, w/ side bowl of steamed rice) — Sashimi:  tako (octopus) sashimi (slices of octopus tentacle, on shredded daikon) — Nigiri Sushi:  aburi sampler ('flamed' nigiri sushi - salmon, tuna, ebi, tai, saba, and hotate, w/special sauces, and spices) — Roll:  California roll — and two "extras" our hosts provided without charge:  samples of chicken karage (breaded chicken pieces, w/a sweet & sour-like sauce), and ice cream tempura for dessert (a nice touch, much-appreciated!!).

The food dishes came from kitchen to table in good sequence, in good portions, and looking colourful and appealing. Preparations were very good -- warm dishes, were warm, cold dishes, were cool -- breaded coverings thin, crispy, and flavourful, sauces tasty, and stocks not greasy or salty, quite 'light' and flavourful -- tofu and noodles well-prepared - tofu pieces so creamy, noodles not overcooked -- chirashi don very good, ingredients so colourful, fresh, and tasty - the California rolls as well -- sashimi in the don, and octopus sashimi, perfect, so fresh and flavourful, and the aburi nigiri sushi a taste treat, with melt-in-your-mouth goodness -- the 'extras', well-prepared, and yummy, the ice cream tempura a nice, cool way to end the meal.

Our lunch at Sushi U was a fun, and delightful dining experience — friendly, personable hosts and service, with well-presented and prepared food.  And all served up in a small, ’cool’ and neat restaurant, in a small, local neighbourhood setting -- definitely our kind of place!
