PSA: The Restaurateur Behind Hellenika Is Opening A New Eatery   

Roll up, roll up

Let the good times roll because Simon Gloftis – aka the legend behind Hellenika and SK Steak and Oyster – is opening his third venue at The Calile Hotel and, boy, this will maki your day.

Sushi Room is a beautiful 80-seater eatery designed by Richards & Spence (the crew behind The Calile Hotel, Fish Lane Town Square, Biànca, and more) that’s championing the art of fine sushi. Featuring a stunning Hinoki timber sushi counter and a stunning private dining room, Sushi Room will predominantly serve up sushi and sashimi, with a few classic Japanese dishes in the mix.

Joining Gloftis on his latest escapade will be Theo Kampolis and Kelvin Andrews who make up the team at Sushi Room’s predecessors. They’ve also enlisted the help of sushi master Shimpei Raikuni (previously Gold Coast’s Kiyomi) as head chef.

Sushi Room is set to open in March 2022.

Catch her bombarding her friends with articles she thinks they should read or spending way too much time creating the perfect playlist.
