We ate at Sanpo in Rosebery in June 2020, at the height of the first wave of COVID-19 in Sydney.
We appreciated the strict hand hygiene and social distancing procedures, and understood that we had to wait outside for our table to free up. Safety was more important than comfort.
The beef sukiyaki hotpot was delicious.
The uni sashimi was some of the best sea urchin I’ve had in a while. Large, plump pieces.
The sashimi and sushi set was delicious.
The aburi scallop nigiri was also delicious, however as there was already some that came with the sushi and sashimi set we need not have ordered.
Overall I loved the dimly lit and quiet romantic vibe of the restaurant. I can recommend Sanpo as a nice date location to take your special person or feline (confirm with the restaurant ahead of time).
4.5 scallops, leaning 5.
