A sister restaurant of Eightgrains, Sushi Soldier sits beside its sibling within The Little High Eatery, which is a hive of activity from lunchtime onwards.

Offering all the best parts of Japanese cuisine, it’s easy to wish your home and/or office were directly above so you could eat here every day. Whether your favourite Japanese dish is tonkotsu ramen, okonomiyaki or chicken katsu don, they’ve got you covered here at Sushi Soldier. Fancy something a little different? The tuna tempura sushi is a real winner and worth trying out – (tuna and mayo sushi coated in tempura batter and deep-fried). The sweet and spicy fried chicken is also a must, and despite the generous portion, will likely only last seconds at the table before it is devoured piece-by-piece. Not interested in doing things by halves, Sushi Soldier also offers dessert, so why not finish the meal off with maple waffles alongside matcha ice-cream.

Also, make the most of Sushi Soldier and Eightgrains by ordering your choices from both menus and sitting at Eightgrains bar.

Whether you are taking the time to sit and absorb the flurry of The Little High Eatery or grabbing your meal to takeaway, there’s no doubt this eatery is forming a loyal following of its own.
