Signature Dishes & Dishes Sampled
Garnell’s signatures are the family-size sushi platters for couples or groups to share. From nigiri to sashimi to fried rolls, the signature style at Garnell is mix-match-share!
Arriving early to Garnell was a treat as we had the entire restaurant to ourselves. We took in the ambience and quickly ordered starters. First, we started our meal with shrimp two ways, first was the Shrimp Crackers with teriyaki sauce and sesame seeds, then the Shrimp Soup, hearty comfort food. The Salmon and Shrimp Balls and Seafood Salad made for light starters. We went for one of the family style sushi platters from the extensive sushi menu. It included Nigiri, Hoso Maki, Sashimi, Ura Maki, Fried Rolls, and Temaki. The sushi held its own with a variety of flavors, colors, sizes, and styles. Of the crowd favorites, are the California Roll, Salmon Sashimi, and Philadelphia Roll. Some of the most notable rolls were the Dragon Roll; eel and crab meat topped with avocado and sesame seeds, as well as the Temaki Salmon, a large and unique hand-rolled cone filled with salmon, avocado and rice. For dessert we had the chocolate fudge cake and molten cake to end the dinner on a sweet note.
