Much has been said about Ryoshi Sushi Ikeikemaru, the sushi restaurant at the basement of Liang Court. I am going straight to the point: Whatever you have heard about Ryoshi – it is true. They serve surprisingly good and fresh sushi at very affordable prices.
I was a little apprehensive about trying it out as I thought it was just another mediocre Japanese restaurant serving sushi on conveyor belt. Thankfully, my worries turned out to be unnecessary. Ryoshi Sushi Ikeikemaru is very decent and judging from the crowd during meal times, it is already very popular.
Ryoshi charges by the plate, and prices range from $1.80 to $6.80 for different sushi. In addition, they also have a selection of ala carte dishes such as Tempura Udon ($9.60), Ebi Fried ($5.80), Chawanmushi ($3.80) and Salmon Avocado Salad ($7.60).
Don’t visit Ryoshi Sushi Ikeikemaru and expect to get quality sushi that you will get from top Japanese restaurants. But what you can expect is reasonably good sushi at pocket-friendly prices. If you are a fan of Itacho Sushi, I think you will like Ryoshi too.

The branch of this restaurant at westgate did not serve fresh sushi. In fact, even the sushi rice also tasteless.
Poor service, poor hygiene: Went to Westgate branch at 5:10pm on a Thu for a quick meal. The restaurant was almost empty so I asked to be seated at a table and even promised to finish in 30 min, but the waitress refused…She said that that is their “principal”. Obviously customer satisfaction is not part of that principal. I didn’t bother to argue so ended up sitting at counter. 8 hours after the dinner, I had diarrhea!!! Guess that may be part of the principal too. BEWARE of the Westgate branch. I am never going there again.
