This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Sushiya is Edinburgh’s bite-sized taste of Tokyo, as tiny, bright and inviting as the futo maki sushi. With only 25 covers it is undeniably small, but the stylish, minimalist interior keeps the feel spacious even when it’s busy and there’s a steady stream of people collecting takeaway. Everything at Sushiya is done well, from the stylish bowls and plates to the delicately shaped cucumber slices between the mackerel and scallop sashimi, so fresh it seems to evaporate in the mouth. The range of sushi is wide and exciting, traditional and modern (the grilled eel nigiri packs a particularly tasty punch) but Sushiya offers much more. Delicate, crisp tempura and deep, warming bowls of ramen are complemented by specials like the intriguing grilled aubergine with miso sauce and seared swordfish, both recent additions to the menu. The black sesame ice-cream is curiously moreish, summing up Sushiya perfectly: elegant and delicious.
