If you’re on a budget, but still like to treat yourself to tasty sushi, you’ll be thrilled to discover Britannia and some of the lowest prices in town for high-quality Japanese. The restaurant offers all of the traditional rolls and sashimi and a few house specialties like ebi salad dragon roll with chopped shrimp, masago and barbecue eel. Family boats offer great value and come in those cute wooden vessels, making for a fun sharing experience. There are many other great deals to be had, from the bento boxes, to the 18-pieces plus , miso for under $6 to the half-dozen party platters that you can get for 10-per-cent off if you order a day in advance.
Several Options for Sushi-phobics
The menu at Britannia offers much more than simply sushi. There’s also a selection of half a dozen rice bowls with both “don” and teriyaki choices and noodle dishes featuring udon and yakisoba. To start your meal, there’s an excellent list of appies like deep-fried chicken wings, wakame (seaweed), sunomono salads, agedashi tofu, tempura and goma-ae. All Japanese dishes taste better will a few sips of the national drinks and so Britannia serves up sake as well as Japanese beers like Kirin, Sapporo and Asahi.
Speedy Service in Bright Surroundings
If you’re looking for a no-fuss, speedy sushi meal, Britannia is your place. The restaurant is casual and comfortable and is known for its efficiency. You can be in and out of there in 30 minutes, easy. The space is warm and welcoming with colourful lanterns hanging from the ceiling and bold walls the same orange colour as the spicy tuna sauce and adorned with traditional Japanese woodcarvings and hangings. You can sit at one of the big wooden booths or at the bar and watch the chef at action. In the summer, the handful of seats on the patio and spots by the big open windows are highly coveted.
