Yuma Sushi: Serious about Sushi

Yuma Sushi: Serious about Sushi

Sushi lovers are beating a path to Yuma Sushi. Owner Julia Carr reveals her recipe for success

You don’t have to spend long with Julia Carr to realise that she loves what she does. And that is Yuma Sushi, the independent sushi shop next to Chiswick Park Station. It opened in January and Julia and her team are building a devoted following for the eat-in, takeaway and delivery services.

‘We care about what we do,’ she explains. ‘I want to do sushi as it should be, not as fast food. Our sushi is handmade to order using the best ingredients; on average, the salmon we use is three years old which gives it a wonderfully rich flavour. And our chefs really know how to cut the fish properly.’

It is a business recipe that Julia, who previously worked in the fashion industry, has used before. She founded Yuma Sushi in Richmond over three years ago. ‘Our shop in Brewer’s Lane went very well. But we only had three tables, so we needed larger premises. Our new home is perfect, it’s such a lovely open space.’

Rich in vitamins and minerals yet low in fat, sushi has become a popular cuisine in the UK. ‘It’s such a delicious way to eat, so light and healthy,’ says Julia.

She put together the menu in conjunction with her chefs and, when pushed, highly recommends the Chef ’s Specials, in particular the Chef ’s Roll (Prawn Tempura and Avocado wrapped in Salmon), the Soft-shell Crab and, from the hot dishes, homemade Ramen and Chicken Katsu curry.

Also proving a hit is Yuma Sushi’s catering for corporate and private functions and home entertaining. ’No matter how many guests you’re looking after, we can prepare superb sushi platters or a bespoke menu to suit,’ Julia tells me. ‘Sushi is the perfect complement to any party.’

Clearly, when it comes to high-quality sushi, Chiswick’s gain has been Richmond’s loss. ‘I get stopped by people in Richmond asking where we’ve gone,’ smiles Julia.

‘But many of my old customers still make the trip to W4 or order deliveries.’ You can’t get a better recommendation than that!
