Taste your way through the menu at New Lambton’s Japanese restaurant
For New Lambton locals, there is one joint that has been a staple in the weekly eat-out schedule – to whom do I refer? Sushi for You, situated on Alma Road.
The rather unassuming façade is home to one of the most substantial selections of Japanese menu items across Newcastle. Featuring bento boxes, curries, donburi, Yaki udon, ramen, udon, nigiri, sashimi, and of course, sushi!
When you step into the snug space, your eyes are drawn directly to the sushi display cabinet, showcasing their grand selection of freshly made rolls.
Looking back into the kitchen you can watch the staff busily flit around the small kitchen space, perfecting the presentation of each and every dish that makes its way out of the kitchen.
Additionally, the price point won’t break the bank – just one look at the size of their ramen, with prices starting at $14.90, and any ramen lover will be rushing to devour.
The cosy restaurant space is decked out with Japanese decorations including artworks of geishas, as well as wagasas (paper umbrellas) and lanterns hanging from the ceiling.
With about five tables available for dine-in inside and two outside, if you’re wanting to snag a spot, my tip would be to get in early because space is incredibly limited.
The New Lambton venue is open Monday 9am-3pm and Tuesday-Saturday until 8.30pm, making for a great spot to drop in for a lunchtime pick-me-up, or for a cosy (and filling) dinner out.
