Owners description

Sushi Burrito & Co. is very different from the usual run of Asian restaurants and is alsothe first in South Africa offering this type of cuisine.

Takeaways are available from Sushi Burrito & Co but it’s better to sit down and take time to enjoy the delicious flavours. The restaurant is bright and vibrant, with clean, simple décor that is influenced by Japanese pop art culture mixed with colours that are popular in Mexico.

User reviews

  • On entering this unpretentious eatery, the bright fun colours and Japanese pop-art themes hint at the fusion of Asian and Latin American influences. Sushi Burrito's subtly flavoured and exquisitely presented food delivers on that promise. In spades. Think sushi crossed with nachos, Indonesian-influenced Gangnum style wings and tempura veggies with a twist. And that's just for starters! Mains include the eponymous sushi burritos wrapped in a choice of nori or SB's special crunch; baos (soft Chinese buns with a variety of fillings); poke bowls and sashimi. The less extensive dessert menu also features enticements like nutella wontons, deep fried baos and ice-cream. On my first visit there with a friend last week, the specials described on the board outside were enough to convince me that I'd arrived in the right place at the perfect time. The menu will appeal to sushi-lovers as well as those who prefer their protein cooked, and a plethora of white and red meat options as well as several vegetarian offerings ensures that a range of dietary preferences are generously accommodated. Making a choice was enormously difficult, but we eventually settled on tostadas (the aforementioned sushi nachos, what's not to like in that combination?) and the healthy but gloriously flavourful edamame beans, followed by a duo of baos for my companion while I splurged on the salmon from the specials menu. It arrived floating in a ginger, lime and coriander sauce that played a symphony on my tastebuds, perfectly complementing the very lightly cooked salmon. I was in gastronomic heaven. My friend loved the soft dumpling-like texture of the bao and its panko-crumbed filling, but felt that the Kgochujang sauce she'd ordered as an extra failed to live up to its 'very hot' billing. We ended with chilli chocolate and green tea ice-cream, both flavours very good, but I was rather disappointed that the lychee flavour was not available. All in all, we intend to return to SB with a larger group to facilitate trying out many more of the alluring combinations on offer. It is my fervent hope that they retain both the miso soup and the tom yum specials until my next visit. If you're seeking a twist on traditional Asian cuisine, Sushi Burrito may well be a most inspired choice. We certainly enjoyed it enormously.
