Japanese? Yes please! Sushi Red

I stopped in for a late lunch at Sushi Red in Plainville, CT. It’s a small restaurant at the end of a tiny shopping plaza that I’ve driven past a couple hundred times. I finally decided to check the place out. I wasn’t sure what to expect but the restaurant exceeded any little expectation I did have! Let me break down my visit.


Sushi Red’s Décor

The inside had a sleek style going on; red balloons hung from above with Asian words written in black on them, there was a large bamboo plant as soon as you entered the building, and beautiful Buddha themed artwork coated the walls. There were a few tables for patrons to sit and enjoy their meal as well as a counter with plenty of bar stool seating. The cleanliness rated a 20 out of 10; Mr. Clean himself would be so bored as the place is immaculate.

I was greeted as soon as I walked in the door by a smiling man wearing a chefs hat and chefs coat. He waited patiently giving me plenty of time to check out the menu that was posted on the wall next to the entrance. There was a sign that said “To Go Only” so I knew I couldn’t stay to indulge my meal at one of the tables. I was in the restaurant for a total of 15 minutes including the time I took to decide on what I wanted. Very fast and efficient service.



The food was outstanding! The avocado sushi was displayed beautifully. The avocado was ideal; not too firm and not too soft and the rice was the perfect texture too. The miso soup was the best I have ever had. I’ve been to some other Japanese restaurants and paid double what I paid here and this was much better quality. It was full of flavor, and didn’t have an overwhelming amount of tofu or seaweed either. The mochi ice cream was green tea flavored and out of this world. I ate it in two bites! I have never had this type of ice cream before but it’s all the rave now so I had to try it. It did not disappoint! Definitely, the perfect summer treat! The pure green tea was a great pairing to the meal. It was subtle, refreshing and delicious.



Well worth it for my miso soup appetizer, 8 piece avocado roll sushi lunch, Japanese green tea beverage, and mochi ice cream dessert! My total came to $10.57. Insert round of applause, a couple high fives, and winning music here. DJ Khaled “All I Do Is Win” feat. Ludacris, Rick Ross, T-Pain & Snoop Dogg / Victory In Stores Now . I couldn’t believe it! For the quality and quantity of an authentic Japanese meal, Sushi Red can’t be beat!

The décor, service, food, and price were impeccable. I will definitely be returning for dine in service as soon as they are able to seat customers. I highly recommend this establishment to everyone and anyone. My only disappointment was not coming here sooner.
