Endo Sushi is slightly remote to get to, there isn’t a public transport that takes you right to their doorstep, so thank God we had a car and we drove right there.  It was in the middle of a nowhere except a big market, at one point i thought we went to a deserted island.  We saw noone around and the googlemap was wrong (not surprised eh?) so we asked someone who spoke no English.  We finally found it and it was this sweet little shop with only 3 wooden tables and some extra seats by the bar table.  We were lucky to be seated down as we were eating, lots of Japanese people came in and some were turned away.

Recommendation

  • Omakase set
  • Toro

Verdict

Omakase – 9/10
Toro nigiri – 10/10
Miso Soup – 8/10

  This was one of my best sushi meal in Osaka, as some of the sushi shops in Osaka are very toristy and expensive.  The local ones don’t really accept foreigners and don’t even have a menu, as omakase is served with whatever is the freshest.  Whereas here, at least they have menu with pictures and English.  Best thing is, the price is very reasonable, each omakase set is only 1080 jpy + 8% tax.  Although each set only has 5 pieces of nigiri, but that si what I liked about it.  For someone like me who doesn’t explore so much of different types of raw fishes, this was best option.  As each set will have atleast one common raw fish that everybody eats, like salmon, toro, eel or egg.  You can even change one of the nigiri like I did as I am allergic to prawns and crabs, they kindly changed it to salmon and yellowfish for me.  All sushi was made when ordered, as fresh as possible.  I loved the scallop, yellowfish and the salmon, so good I had to keep reordering.  
  I must mention we ordered a plate of toros (fatty tuna belly) sushi, and  OH MY GOD, I was mindblown.  I thought I was eating Kobe beef, the fatty tuna melted in my mouth like butter! It was so delicious we ordered 3 plates of this and wanted to reorder the fourth till we stopped ourselves.  I did realize the Toros we ordered separately was much higher quality than the toro nigiri in the omakase set, I guess that is why they charged premium rates too!

  Service was amazing and immaculate, from the minute we sat down to the point we left in embarrassment.  We did not know they only accept cash and we had only a little cash and as this shop was in the middle of nowhere, we couldn’t even go to the ATM.  It was really really really embarrassing to tell them we do not have enough cash, however they were extremely nice and told us it is okay.  We looked like some tacky Chinese people who ordered so much expensive Toros and cannot afford it.  We did come back with the cash and they didn’t even expect us to come back. Do NOT try this as they are genuinely nice people but this is how nice they were.

Would I go back again? Yes
