|Tsuki Japanese Resturant
23 Mine Brook Road
I had been anticipating a visit to Tsuki for a couple of days. Looking at Internet review sights, Tsuki got consitently good reviews. Some reviewers even called it the best sushi in New Jersey. I just had to give it a try.
WhenI I got to Tsuki I recognized the neighborhood. Tsuki is located in Bernardsville, NJ in the midst of several upscale restaurants and shops. It is practically next door to the Bernards Inn
Walking in to Tsuki, my first impression was that the decor needes upgradiing. The booths had tall wooden backs that provided extra privacy. I thought the combinationof the wooden booths and bare walls made the restaurant very noisy. I did appreciate the lighting since as usual I was reading a book.
The specials board had a pretty good selection but I didin’t see anything I liked. I ordered a sashimi combo, gyoza and a Philadelphia roll. The gyoza was excellent. The Phily roll was rather plain, just smoked salmon and cream cheese — personally, I prefer a little avocado in it.
I have to say I was disappointed in the sashimi combo. The mackeral was excellent but the portion was tiny. Overall I think that all the portions were small. The tuna was good but the other fish were just adequate. In the end I have no real complaints about Tsuki.
