Business Lunch Review: Kinki Sushi

Food Quality: 5

Value: 5

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5

I’ve never tried sushi and don’t plan to change that anytime soon, so when a good friend invited me to lunch at Kinki Sushi many years ago, I was less than enthusiastic.

This time, I visited the restaurant in Le Pavilion Shopping Center in Augusta for dinner with my wife, Rebecca.

I may be too picky to try sushi, but I love Japanese food. I especially enjoy hibachi restaurants, where a chef prepares your meal in front of you. But Kinki Sushi isn’t that type of eatery.

I ordered teriyaki chicken, which came with either white or fried rice and vegetables. Occasionally, I try to eat a healthy diet, so I chose white rice. Rebecca ordered hibachi shrimp with fried rice and vegetables and a California roll, which contains crab, avocadoes, and cucumbers.

We were served quickly, and the portion sizes were very generous. I finished my meal, but she took most of her food home to enjoy later.

The food was delicious, and we both loved the atmosphere at Kinki Sushi. There were only one or two other diners in the restaurant, so we enjoyed a meal in peace and quiet. Besides freelance writing, I’ve also been substitute teaching, a job that offers neither of those. Rebecca’s been a special education teacher for 23 years, so she’s endured more chaos than just about anyone else I know.

Because Kinki Sushi is small and quiet, I think it would be a great location for a business lunch. It’s also a great value. The teriyaki chicken cost $10.99, the hibachi shrimp cost $12.99, and the California roll was $6.99. Another of our favorite restaurants is Kyoto Japanese Cuisine in Augusta, which serves similar food.

On Kyoto’s dinner menu, teriyaki chicken costs $14.39, and a California roll is $6.35. I didn’t find hibachi shrimp on the menu, but hibachi chicken also costs $14.39.

We both vowed that our visit to Kinki Sushi wouldn’t be our last.
