Sticks ‘n’ Sushi, the uniquely Skandi-influenced Japanese restaurant group will open a fourth London site in Canary Wharf this May. The group entered the London market in 2012 with a Wimbledon site, closely followed by Covent Garden in 2014 and Greenwich early 2015. The largest of all the London venues, Canary Wharf will seat 190 covers in one large dining room with an open kitchen and 23 metre-long bar. Designed by Diener & Diener this will follow the same understated and slick style of the previous London sites with leather and wooden tables, soft lighting and a spacious, airy dining room. Located in the waters of the north dock (next to the HSBC tower) the restaurant is in the new Crossrail building designed by Norman Foster. Uniquely for the group it will offer breakfast menus consisting of Danish and Japanese dishes such as quinoa maki with herbs and home-baked rye bread with smoked salmon.
The main food menu will contain the classic range of high-quality chicken, duck, beef, lamb and vegetable Sticks (yakatori grills) and Sushi with a huge selection of salads available as well. Guests are encouraged to either order from the à la carte selection or for the indecisive there are 14 set sharing menus perfect for groups with selections like the Maki Deluxe that give a taste of the whole menu. Cocktails are a speciality of the Sticks team too with delicacies like shisho shochu, ginger, avocado, soy milk and sake sitting alongside classic gin, rum and Aperol ingredients.
Canary Wharf, of all places, has landed itself a real treat. 5,700 miles away from Japan, Sticks ‘n’ Sushi Canary Wharf offers excellent Japanese food in a buzzing, fun atmosphere. You leave feeling full, but without the guilt of having eaten somewhere too unhealthy / calorifically-indulgent. It’s pricey, but the quality of the food, and service, makes it worth it. If you want Japanese done well, and a great atmosphere, this place is well worth a go.
