Edo Shiki is one of my favourite stops for fresh sushi in the city centre. Conveniently located by Myers at Forrest place, this is a sure escape for people wanting fresh good Japanese food. They open at 10.30am every day, and although technically this is not a brunch place, this is certainly a "brunsashumuzi". Their train mixes dishes with several pieces of Sushi (from the basic to the very elaborate), Sashimi (basic), fried food, sweet buns, and, everybody's favourite (mine too) - the hot bamboo baskets with some delicious Japanese specialities. Beyond the train, you have Bento trays, an a-la-carte menu for individual dishes, and a good range of western and Japanese drinks.
Their prices are average for places like this, so it is up to you if you want a cheap Bento tray, an affordable individual dish, or four expensive train plates, the latter being my case most of the time. I cannot help myself. They have a happy hour from Monday to Thursday, starting at around 4pm, affecting their takeaway area and you can/might get a 2 x 1, which is great if you are lucky enough to get one of their deluxe Sushi trays.
The staff are a bunch of young smiley and welcoming guys, but service can be slow at peak hours despite them running all over.
Edo Shiki has three three main downs. 1/ Their cold fried dishes. What is the point and the pleasure of serving cold tasteless fried food? 2/ The spacing between seats at the long decked table, especially at peak times, as you could be rubbing shoulders -literally- with somebody you don't want to. 3/ They don't have a public toilet, so, if you are in need, squeeze in your bladder, and run to Myers.
They have a Facebook account, so push their button and make them happy:
