True Japanese flavours cruise country’s longest sushi train at new ‘Sushi Wawa’
With a 62-metre sushi train – thought to be the longest in the Southern Hemisphere – new Japanese restaurant Sushi Wawa has opened its doors, bringing the convenience of super-fresh, fully-authentic Japanese cuisine to Perth, Western Australia.
Named in honour of its home state (‘WA’) and located opposite Ikea in Innaloo, Sushi Wawa boasts a stellar line-up of accomplished Japanese chefs. Head chef Hiroaki Fujioka (formerly of Nobu Perth) leads sous chefs George Yamahara (previously Satsuki), Mitsunori Nishida (ex Jaws) and Hidenori Otani (ex Rockpool).
An open kitchen takes centre stage, where more than 110 varieties of sushi, sashimi and sumptuous hot and cold dishes are created with the amazing flavour, flair and artistry synonymous with Japan. Each dish is crafted fresh, using top-quality local seafoods and produce delivered daily.
Sushi Wawa owner/manager Lee Hayes said her vision was to make high-quality, well-priced Japanese food more accessible to the people of Perth.
“We wanted to create a restaurant that makes it convenient for people to eat healthily, with taste and quality being key ingredients. Sushi Wawa’s location, pricing and freshness policy all deliberately reflect that goal.”
“Our chefs and waitstaff greet every customer with a loud and lively ‘Irasshaimase’ Japanese welcome, and our fresh approach continues until you depart,” said Ms Hayes.
Head chef Hiroaki Fujioka says: “We are not copying Japanese food. We are Japanese chefs making what we know is real Japanese food, and we are creating it in the best way we know possible.”
Sushi Wawa’s modern-decor restaurant offers comfortable booths for up to four-to-six people, and bar-style seating for casual and solo dining. Family-friendly, there are plenty of choices for little sushi lovers, plus a kids’ zone with LCD TV and play area.
Sushi Wawa is open for dine-in and take-away lunch seven days per week and for dinner from Thursday to Sunday. Access is straight off the Mitchell Freeway (exit Cedric Street), with plenty of convenient car parking available.
