Norwegian’s Sushi & Sashimi Bar offers all-you-can-eat sushi for a $15 cover charge.
For a cover charge of $15 per person, passengers can eat as much sushi as they want at the Sushi & Sashimi Bar. It’s open all afternoon until 10.30 pm, and there is no reservation needed.
When we ate here, unfortunately, we didn’t have the best of experiences. Food-wise, it wasn’t a bad meal, but service was lacking. Our waiter either was very busy (despite the eatery being nearly deserted) or just plain rude as he wasn’t attentive to us at all. We’re guessing it was the latter, as we noticed him showing far more interest in the two young girls next to us.
The design of the sushi bar is a fun one, with a motorized conveyor belt that carries sushi to diners. The sushi chef periodically puts little plates with two pieces of sushi on the belt, and they arrive right in front of you. The Sushi & Sashimi Bar is a silver chrome block with bar stools and the conveyor belt running the perimeter.
The menu offers nigiri sushi or sashimi with tuna, salmon, octopus or prawn, and sushi rolls like California, spicy tuna, and shrimp tempura. There are also some more exotically-named rolls like the Godzilla Roll with shrimp, mango, avocado and caramelized cashews, or the Rock & Roll with eel, yellowtail and avocado. There are also two combos, Diamond and Ruby, with an assortment of nigiri, sashimi and rolls for the indecisive.
Both sushi combos are large and with lots of different flavors. The sashimi was cut a little thick. As for the sushi itself, some rolls were quite good, like the Rock & Roll and Rainbow Roll, but all the rolls had too much rice and sometimes even sweet rice instead of vinegar.
Sushi & Sashimi offers the same desserts as the Teppanyaki.
