Critic's review

Tayla Foong

This quaint restaurant situated on the ever-popular Stanley Street has become one of Nelson Mandela Bay’s treasures. It offers a wide variety of sushi creations, as well as an array of Eastern-inspired dishes that are sure to tantalise taste buds.

Food
The food at Fushin is best enjoyed with others – it lends itself to tapas-style dining. There are main meal options like the Thai green chicken or seafood curries, which are equally good, but the best memories are made around a sharing table. It’s a scrumptiously social affair.

Some favourites out of the Fushin kitchen include, without a doubt, the classic Fushin roll, which is Fushin’s rendition of the rainbow roll. The dragon is also a delicious option when eel is available – the combination of prawn, avo and eel is simply a match made in heaven.

If sushi doesn’t appeal to you, the deep-fried black pepper squid is the best in town and the black pepper crispy ribs will leave you messy and wanting more – the perfect balance of sweet and tangy with just the right amount of crunch.

Mark, the head chef and owner is constantly playing around with new flavour combinations and techniques. As a result the menu is updated regularly.

Drinks
The carefully selected wine list is small, but includes some spectacular champagnes, MCCs and mostly high end South African wines, some of which are available by the glass. Sake is also a good option if you want to have an authentically Japanese experience, but if that’s a little too adventurous for you, there’s also a wide variety of whiskeys, gins and beers available. If you’re looking for something a little more fun, Fushin’s cocktail menu has something for everyone – from the classic mojito to the intriguing sayuri sours.

Service
The service at Fushin is always good. The Fushin brand attracts some of the very best waitrons in Port Elizabeth, so you can expect to be greeted promptly and cheerfully and be well looked after throughout your dining experience. The waitrons are well informed on the menu and are able to give recommendations according to your taste. Possibly the only fault would be that some of the waitrons are not too well versed on the wine selection.

Ambience
The restaurant is minimalist and modern, lending itself to a formal, semi-formal and casual dining experience in a way that only a well-loved Port Elizabeth restaurant can. Fushin also has a seating area on the Stanley Street restaurant strip. Its social atmosphere is buzzing – the perfect spot to enjoy a hot summer day and chilly winter evening alike.

Best for…
A celebration of any kind or a romantic evening for two.

    Food

    Fushin has changed its menu layout to a more user-friendly format, but the food is as intricate and fantastic as always. The photogenic seared salmon su-miso tastes as magnificent as it looks: a slab of juicy, thick slices with a subtle sprinkling of Szechuan pepper. From the tapas menu, the aubergine shrimp toast is a winner, while the sushi is a little work of art. The dragon roll is topped with flash-seared smoked eel and served with a drizzle of tsume sauce, which is reduced for 8 hours (you HAVE to drag your finger through it). Ingredients are meticulously sourced – try the exotic spicy blue crab and perhaps a little kimchi salad.

    Drinks

    If the carefully selected wines of which many (including an MCC) are available by the glass, are not for you, cast your eye over the unusual craft beers, whiskies or try some authentic sake. A little green or jasmine tea also works wonders after too much sushi!

    Service

    A good restaurant attracts good waiters and Fushin is no exception. They are confident and knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu. It's obvious that an experienced, dedicated restaurateur is at the helm.

    Ambience

    No frills, minimalist décor, brightened with flashes of red. Sheltered pavement seating and the energy of a full house, as well as chefs deftly wielding their knives as they prepare dish after dish, complete the picture.

    And…

    Owner Mark Oosthuizen has named some elements on the menu after his kids – a successful businessman paying homage to his family.
