    Ishin Japanese DiningPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    As expected of a Japanese restaurant, the variations of sushi served here is impressive. Instead of the usual sushi, entertain your taste buds with the myriad of flavours in Ishin’s famous rolls. The Phoenix Roll is a deep fried prawn, rolled in sticky rice and topped alternately with strips of avocados and mangoes; all ingredients as fresh as it can be. Served in the shape of a long prawn, the prawn middle is excitingly juicy, and all the flavours came out well in every bite of the sushi. Other worthy mentions include the generous size of Caterpillar Roll that consists of soft shell crab, roe and avocado, and the Special House Maki with their crunchy fried prawns. 

    Tips
