Shira Nui, Glen Waverley MELB

For fancy yet intimate place to celebrate a special occassion, Shira Nui still tops my chart, noting that it's not exactly a very pocket friendly place to go. Food is definitely worthwhile and if you're not a big eater, this is definitely an ideal place to chill out over some sake or plum wine (yes, lots of options to choose from!).

Having been here before to sample their omakase set, we decide to order ala carte for a change in scenery.

Sushi and sashimi platter ~ everything on the place was top notch quality and tasted superb despite it's simplicity. Each piece of sashimi was evenly sliced and the sushi pieces were just the right size.

We have also ordered a plate of aburi nigiri and yes, each piece was well seasoned yet again.

Tuna tataki ~ Tuna was cooked on the exterior but still retains a good amount of pinkish hue on the flesh. The dollop of relish on top of the tuna added extra sweetness and zing to the dish. Favourite tuna tataki thus far!

Tempura of prawns and vegetables ~ Crunchy and not too raw for our liking. The bowl on the center of the plate holds grated radish which is used to mix into the accompanying soy sauce (and magically thickens it). Not too sure what's the idea behind it but hey, it made coating the tempura in the accompanying soy sauce a lot more easier:)

Overall, excellent service and food here but do not that it's not exactly somewhere you would go often unless you're a small eater and if you are loaded. won't regret, that's for sure:)
