Sushi Wafu 寿司和风 @ Moulmein Rise Shoppes, Pulau Tikus, Penang.

"You Get What You Pay For" applies to Sushi Wafu (寿司和风)... a newly opened franchised Japanese Sushi restaurant in town, occupying a nice lot at Moulmein Rise Shoppes, Pulau Tikus. The brand is known for offering Sushi at unbelievably low rates; the place has since attracted a great crowd since its opening in mid December 2018. While the restaurant has a Sushi conveyor belt, it has a big menu featuring other Japanese dishes as well. Prices are typically lower than most Japanese restaurants in town but the quality commensurate with the prices you are paying for. Our experience tells us that their Sushi are typically smaller in size with rather poor quality, this applies to their other dishes as well. The below pictures speak for themselves.

Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen Set (Rm 19.80)

Chirashi Don Set (Rm 21.80)

Sashimi Salad (Rm 11.80)

Unagi Sushi (Rm 2.80)/ Salmon Sushi (Rm 2.80)/ Ebiko Gunkan (Rm 1.80)/ Maki Sushi (Rm 1.80)

We were dismayed by the presentation, not only they looked completely different from the menu (well we do understand that pictures are for illustration only), the taste was not up to par. The Tuna Sashimi on the Chirashi Don was appalling, as though it was leftover from somewhere else. The same for the Sashimi Salad. Though the Ramen was edible, we thought the flavor was artificial and the broth felt powdery... tasted pretty much like instant noodles. As for the Sushi, please refer to the photos and they would pretty much tell you the whole story.
