Sushi Nara, Guildford

I love my research. I’m not one of those people who likes to turn up somewhere and randomly pick a place to stay or eat. I like to KNOW it’s going to be good before I go.

That’s not to say I don’t dive into desirable looking eateries should I happen across them. It just means I nearly always have a destination or two in my pocket.

The other night H and I were in Guildford and in need of food.

While I was running through the various Guildford eateries in my mind, H mentioned he had walked past a sushi/Korean place earlier. My brain spooled for a moment and I couldn’t place it which intrigued me, so we headed over.

It is a smallish place on North Street (4b). The name reminded me of a restaurant in Staines I had filed away for a future visit, and some post-meal research confirmed they were related.

It had only opened a week ago, and we ordered a selection of items: pah jeon (Korean seafood pancake), bi bim bap (Korean hot stone rice dish), some kimchi gyoja, vegetable tempura, and some eel and prawn maki.

Dishes turned up periodically and we enjoyed them all. Fresh, crunchy, flavourful, non-greasy, with an array of dipping sauces. There was a lot of wonderful sounding sushi on the menu which we’ll have to go back for, but I imagine it will soon be hard to get a table.

No pics I’m afraid, so you’ll just have to go down there yourself and try it out.
