FANCY some maki rolls, futomaki or temaki sushi?

You can take your pick at the newly-opened Shinobu Sushi Bar in Stockland Rockhampton.

It seems Rockhampton's dining tastes are becoming more refined, with Shinobu the second sushi train restaurant to open in the city.

Jessica Chum, a cashier at Shinobu, said plenty of people had been through the doors since they opened last Friday.

She said Rockhampton was the only city in Queensland where Shinobu had opened.

And so far Jessica said the feedback was positive, with people enjoying the relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere.

She said customers also enjoyed being able to watch the chef create their sushi.

"(Customers have said) it's quite nice and they'll come back again," she said.

Stockland Rockhampton Centre Manager David Fenwick said the addition of Shinobu was "fantastic".

"The moving sushi train creates an interest point and the casual dining atmosphere makes it a great place to eat," he said.

Sushi bites

  • Sushi began as a method of preserving fish in China and dates back to the 2nd Century
  • Sushi does not mean raw fish, instead referring to rice seasoned with vinegar, sugar, and salt
  • Raw fish sliced and served by itself is called sashimi
  • Ginger should be used to cleanse the palate between bites of sushi
  • About 80% of the blue-fin tuna caught worldwide is used for sushi and sashimi
  • The seaweed used to wrap sushi is called nori
  • Don't feel bad if you can't use chopsticks, the correct way to eat sushi is with your fingers
