When it comes to fresh food with a great taste at an affordable price, Sushilee has it all spot on. Located in the southern part of the Dutch capital, this modern Japanese kitchen caters from all-day dining through to early dinner. Be prepared for an all-round sensory experience.
Built with a tremendous amount of care by its founders, Sushilee opened its doors in May this year and already has a clientele of loyal customers who keep coming back for more. Open Tuesday to Saturday from 11.30am to 7pm (when the kitchen closes), the restaurant came to life to provide its customers with a delicious experience centred around food: “For us the quality of the food is of paramount importance, which is why we only use the freshest and highest quality ingredients available. Every item we use to create our menus comes from specialised providers, including our tea which is imported directly from Japan,” explains founder and general manager Lauren Jade Lee.
From the sushi sets, which are a beautiful combination of taste and texture, all the way to the ramen, salads and teppan dishes, Sushilee’s team of Japanese chefs loves surprising their clients with something they might have not tried before. “As a foodie, it’s important to me that we have food that is not just good, but absolutely great,” says Lee. “This is also why the wines we offer are selected for their palate-cleansing attributes, just so you can appreciate every single bite.”
Available for table service, take-away and catering, Sushilee will become your new favourite sushi address.
