When Sherlock Holmes was hot on the trail of the Sushi Ninja he had no idea that something fishy was going on all the way down south at the tip of Africa. He sent Watson to Japan who promptly discarded his bowler hat, donned his chef’s gear, moved to Cape Town and now works at Leaf restaurant. Take yourself to Leaf and find out exactly what awesome sushi tastes like. This Groupon entitles you to 31 pieces of heavenly sushi at Leaf Restaurant & Bar for R130.
Situated in the centre of bustling Green Point, Cape Town, Leaf Restaurant & Bar is an upmarket restaurant gaining in popularity and reputation for serving colourful and extremely tasty sushi. Treat yourself to this delicious Groupon and watch the Leaf chef masterfully create your dinner or lunch, by combing and magically transforming rice, seaweed, fish and accompaniments into a delectable meal.
With a 31-piece sushi platter there is something for everyone: 2 pieces of Salmon Nigiri, 8 pieces of Salmon Maki, 4 pieces of Salmon Fashion Sandwich, 4 pieces of Leaf Roll, 4 piece Rainbow Roll, 6 piece Salmon Inside Roll, 3 piece Salmon Roses plus Ginger and Wasabi and mayo, all made with the utmost precision and care ensuring you leave fed, happy and ready to come back for your next dinner or lunch session.
Take friends along, chillax in one of Leaf’s three seating sections and enjoy the warm ambience. Relax on the roof seating, enjoy the fresh air and take in the view while savouring your tasty sushi. Or you could stay warm in the downstairs area and watch the Sushi-Ninja whip up your delicious meal. Then again, if you’re in the mood for an inside-outside experience, unwind in the upstairs area which is more secluded for those who want to hold hands and call each other sushi-unrelated names like ‘pumpkin, butternut, or peaches’. If you stop boring holes into each other’s souls you can take-in the breathtaking view.
Leaf offers brilliant service and a place to rest your weary feet, it’s like Christmas in June and Santa is a Japanese sushi chef delivering little sushi parcels of deliciousness.
Food for thought: The inhabitants of landlocked countries have found their sushi to be less fresh than their ocean hugging counterparts, so the citizens carve Salmon shapes out of watermelons and make ‘pretend’ sushi in their broom closets.
