Insanely Good Japanese Dishes at Sushi Ten Restaurant

Sushi Ten, Manila – One of the cuisines we dine out often is Japanese, and we only go back to those that we think are worth the price. We’ve been to Sushi Ten Restaurant twice in less than 3 months, so maybe it’s time you try it out too.

Hubby’s family used to frequent Pan Pacific Manila Hotel (now known as Sheraton Hotel Manila Bay) and dine at Asunaro, a Japanese restaurant located on the hotel’s 2nd floor. I have also tried the Pan Pacific Japanese restaurant once, but recently, when we went back, it’s already gone.

The lady server waiting outside of the same spot as Asunaro said that the restaurant’s name had changed, along with the hotel’s change to Sheraton Manila Bay.

While it’s now called Sushi Ten, the dishes are still the same, according to her. However, the 2nd floor was still under renovation, so she pointed us to go to the 5th floor.

Upon reaching the 5th floor, you’ll notice 3 restaurants named, Sushi Ten, Gyumon, and Ryuen. The 3 are related to one another, and they are under the Gyumon Yakiniku Restaurant group.

We usually eat yakiniku at Japanese restaurants in Metro Manila, however, since we were with hubby’s dad, we decided to try Sushi Ten, one that serves a la carte Japanese food.

Sushi Ten Hours

Sushi Ten Japanese Restaurant Sheraton operates from 11:30 AM to 2 PM for lunch, and from 4 PM to 10 PM for dinner. But it’s helpful to check out the Sushi Ten Manila Menu before you visit because there’s a lot to choose from.

Sushi Ten Restaurant Menu

Upon entering, we were surprised to find a very small dining area. And while it wasn’t packed yet at 6:30 PM, we proceeded to take our seats and checked the menu out. 

You might be overwhelmed when you see the Sushi Ten menu. They have lots of food to offer. But I’m doing you a favor by sharing what’s inside the pages so that you already have an idea of what to expect when you decide to dine there.

Flipping on the 1st page will show you sushi and sushi rolls. In this starting page, you’ll immediately see lots of choices and they all look too good not to try. There’s even inari sushi that I got tempted to order, but I resisted. 

Next, you’ll see authentic appetizers like edamame, chawan mushi, and even natto (fermented soybeans). There are also tamago, agedashi tofu, and preserved garlic cloves.

The 2nd page of appetizers will show you kakiage (mixed vegetable tempura), Japanese mini sausage (which is one of the bestsellers), and kani salad. Besides all these listings, there’s a whole lot more, so make sure to check the photos out!

When you’re done checking the appetizers out, you’ll see a family menu, which is for sharing. And maybe we’ll try it next time when other family members are with us.

Agemono, or deep-fried dishes, such as tempura, tonkatsu, and ika furai are found opposite the family menu. Make sure to check the House Specials below the page for order suggestions!

If you’re looking for a Japanese food menu not found in usual Japanese restaurants in the country, you might want to check the next page.

You’ll find Japanese smelt (a native freshwater fish of Japan), grilled Japanese scallops, gindara teriyaki, and so much more!  

On the next page, you’ll also see aburi sushi, and you can choose from cuttlefish, tuna belly, salmon, prawn, and Japanese wagyu. There are even mackerel, US cube steak, and Angus yakiniku.

Still couldn’t decide on what to eat? Read more!

Nabemono (or hot pot) and a fish head menu will further hunger you. Every menu has a corresponding photo, so you have an idea of what to expect when you order them.

Going back to the menu on the opposite of nabemono page, noodle lovers (like me!) will surely like. I was surprised to find cold noodles on the Sushi Ten menu because I only heard about it in Korean dishes.

But maybe I’ll try it some other time. What we tried were yakisoba and yakiudon, as our usual orders. 

Of course, if there are noodles, rice bowls are also available for carb loading. There are also onigiris (Japanese rice balls) on the menu, which are almost only found in convenience stores here in the Philippines. 

The next page is made to cleanse your palate which includes extra orders of rice and soup, and ice cream desserts.

But before you end your order, you must know that there are set menu when you flip through the next page. And after choosing your main dish, you must choose between the basic set or the deluxe set.

Afterward, you have to choose which of the sets will satisfy your hunger. For me, the Sushi Ten Manila prices you’ll pay to get the set menu are worth it. Not all Japanese restaurant in Manila serves authentic food like Sushi Ten, so you should try it soon for the best experience!

We usually order hot or cold tea along with our Japanese food, however, not only does Sushi Ten offer a lot of food menu, but also tons of drinks menu.

Lastly, you’ll find Sushi Ten’s bestseller just before you close the big book of menu. So, now that you know, might as well check the back part first before checking all the pages of the menu to save you time from indecisiveness.

Futo Maki

One of my favorite sushi rolls is the Futo Maki

And while we aren’t sure if Futo Maki does exist in Japan, we couldn’t help but order it again and again because each roll is packed with lots of goodies. 

Stuffed with prawn, crabstick, tamago, and vegetables, Futo Maki is best eaten as a whole. While I try to be demure when eating as much as possible, with Futo Maki, I almost always forget to eat like a princess. 


The next order that arrived was the Gyoza.

The dish is called differently depending on the country in which it is being served. If you’ve heard of dumplings, mandu, momo, samosa, and other similar appetizers, you’ll know you’re going to eat stuff wrapped in flour-based wrappers.

And it’s understandable that many countries offer dumplings (or gyoza) because they make good appetizers. We love gyozas and this one isn’t any different.

Yakiudon and Yakisoba

Another thing that we usually order at a Japanese restaurant is Yakiudon. For some reason, udons have more charm than yakisoba in my appetite. The bland taste of the thick chewy wheat noodles gives off an appeal like no other.

However, we also tried Yakisoba on our second visit to gauge which one was better. But for me, I’d choose my first love over and over again. 

Chicken Karaage

What we’ll not forget to order is our son’s favorite, Chicken Karaage. We ordered the one on the set menu and chose the Deluxe set. And we enjoyed the fresh tuna and salmon sashimi that came along with the set.

Our toddler even loved the miso soup that came with the set. He mixed his rice with soup and ate the whole cup and the chicken karaage. We’ll surely return to Sushi Ten to make sure our son is well-fed!

A side came with the set. The yellow is pickled reddish, while the pink one is pickled eggplant.

US Cube Steak

It took a while before our US Cube Steak arrived. 

The staff said that the chef had a food tasting the first time we tried it. Sure enough, on our 2nd visit, the same order came out faster.

Thankfully, the cubes were the best-tasting beef steaks we had. Cooked medium rare, the US Cube Steak indeed hits the spot for steak lovers. We couldn’t help but order it when we visited the place the 2nd time around and probably do so again the next time we go back. 

There were even fried chopped garlic on the side to add more flavor to your beef cubes, and 2 savory sauces to ensure you enjoy your feast. 

Chicken Teriyaki

Not all Chicken Teriyakis are the same, and Sushi Ten restaurant must’ve mastered the art of serving the best teriyaki chicken there is. 

Each chicken thigh strip has a crunchy skin and is drenched with the sweet and mildly salty teriyaki sauce. The plate also included a serving of shredded cabbage and cucumber to balance out the dish. 

Even hubby fell in love with the chicken teriyaki, so we ordered it again. 


On our 2nd visit to Sushi Ten, we added Tonkatsu to our order. And we were delighted that the meat inside isn’t tough, as other tonkatsu’s are hard to chew. So if you’re a fan of tonkatsu, then this one should be included in your order at Sushi Ten.

Sushi Ten Manila Review Conclusion

You might be surprised at the Sushi Ten menu prices, but what else can you expect from an authentic Japanese restaurant? For me, the quality of food is worth every penny we paid for at Sushi Ten Japanese Restaurant.
