Lantern light fixtures accentuate certain furnishings and areas within the restaurant, drawing attention to the importance of that focal point. This is a true representation of Japanese culture and cuisine.
Busshari’s mission statement is: authenticity to their style of flavour, being creative where necessary, and honouring simplicity in presentation, preparation and cookery methods. For starters, the pork gyoza and tempura prawn are highly recommended by the staff, and a great way to get your meal under way. To follow, check out the wonderful chirashi sushi – this is a selection of diced sashimi in a bowl with steamed rice. To flavour the sashimi, pickled ginger, wasabi, sesame seeds, fish roe and a lovely sauce is added. The colours and textural ingredients are visually striking and demand your attention.
PSST! Busshari offers a range of sweet and dry sake, which happens to be beneficial to one’s health and wellbeing.
