It's no surprise that among the multicultural eateries that stand lined up at the piazza in Castle Towers, there is one that represents Japan. Named Sushi Bay, this is one restaurant that would almost always guarantee you seating as many of the customers do not linger on after their taste buds are satisfied, and their stomachs are filled.
Unlike many other restaurants of this nature, Sushi Bay surprisingly does not have a very large selection to choose from. But what ever sushi there is on offer is quite delicious and clean.
As many of us who would have had a sushi train experience know; choosing your meal is done mostly by watching the carousel carrying plates passes you by. You grab what you fancy, sometimes referring to the colour coded display of plates that are hung on the walls with prices written on them. At Sushi Bay, plates start at $2.50 and are priced right up to $8.50.
You do not have to go by the looks alone when choosing your plates. All tables are equipped with a menu that lets you get a better understanding of what passes you by on those colour coated plates.
Everyone had their favourites, and I did too. Though I tasted at least one plate from each price level, my favourites would have to be the lobster boat and the chilli prawn plate. If you are eating at Sushi Bay Castle Towers, you should not leave without trying the chilli prawn ($5.00) plate. The dish is an absolute delight with four prawns coated in a sticky, tasty chilli sauce.
The waiting staff and the chefs at Sushi Bay are quite friendly. Like in any other sushi serving eatery, even here you are greeted by a string of people up on entry. When you leave, similar kinds of polite goodbyes follow you till you disappear through the doors. All in all, Sushi Bay at Castle Towers sure is an ideal place for a quick bite.
