If your idea of a good meal is lightly flavoured raw fish, then there’s good news. Sushi and More, which claims to be India’s first Japanese takeout restaurant, has opened doors in the city.



According to director Anuj Jodhani, his is the first "affordable Japanese takeaway joint in India." "People have the impression that Japanese food is very expensive. But since we’ve already been importing sauces and vinegars from Japan, we thought we’d expand the business into offering Japanese delicacies like sushi to Indian diners too," he says.



With prices starting at Rs 120 for a vegetarian soup or a veg Gyoza dumpling, Jodhani is trying to avoid burning holes in patrons’ wallets: "We’re sourcing fresh vegetables and meats from local markets. But it’s still authentic because the sauces and other key ingredients are imported."

Another way of keeping costs down is by avoiding creating space for diners. "Right now, you drop in, place your order and we’d prepare the dish fresh for you to take home and eat. We will soon start home-delivery too," he promises.



The restaurant will also be flying down chefs from Japan to train the staff. "The Japanese have a high life expectancy because of the emphasis on fresh food and minimal cooking," Jodhani says, adding, "And the demand for Japan cuisine is increasing in India."
