The décor was crisp simple and elegant, with wooden floors and neutral colors, this was at Fusion9 meeting friends over lunch. I was impressed with their lounge area with an island bar and an open kitchen. They also have a private dining area to boot and we had it all to ourselves this time. This room was ornate with designs etched on the walls and a false ceiling. The ceiling too was dramatic with concave domes and lights dispersing out of it. Sheer curtains, a side board and a black console were the other elements. It was tastefully done up with out being too opulent or loud.

Moving on to matters of the gut! We were served a watermelon virgin Mojito to drink. The watermelon and lemon paired perfectly with this drink. The mint leaves were used as a garnish. It was superb and truly refreshing.
|Trio of Sushi|
For starters ,I got a little adventurous and ordered the vegetarian Sushi called Trio of Sushi for starters. It was stuffed with strips of avocado, cucumber and peppers. It was served with Wasabi, Soy sauce and tender ginger. I liked the sushi it was sweet and I still remember the flavor of the dish it was coated with toasted black and white sesame seeds. I would not dare touch the Wasabi next time. It was spicy (thanks to the horseradish) like the way it is meant to be, but I could not stand the heat of the paste. It is usually served with Gari (a pickled ginger), this plate had tender ginger slices. Another thing I noticed was that the Nori sheet was rolled on the inside and the outer layer had the rice.
|Almond and Broccoli Soup|
I ordered a Almond and broccoli soup. The soup was not very hot and flavor wise I did not like it much.
There were lots of starters that were served. I did savor all of them!
|Vegetarian Dim sum|
This was served with a dollop of spicy tomato chutney. The stuffing inside the dim sum was very gingery. I liked the heat in this dish. It was like eating a spicy modak.
