You'll find some of the best sushi in the city at this small sit-in or takeaway spot.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

What started as a sushi delivery and collection operation based in Restalrig now has its own shop with a small sit-in area on busy Nicolson Street. One wall is decorated with a multicoloured mural by local artist Elph and the other is lined with fridges loaded up with plastic takeaway boxes of sushi rolls, soft drinks and Japanese pancakes filled with chocolate or lemon custard. There are hot options too; delicious miso soup, chicken panko rice and gyoza with dipping sauce all hit the spot. Being in the heart of student-land, it’s a popular spot for an affordable supply of sushi with much better-quality ingredients than the packs on offer in supermarket chains. Office deliveries are available and they can prepare some fairly magnificent platters for parties, or just a raw fish night in. Bargain-hunters take note, there's 50% off all remaining salad and sushi every evening for the last half-hour of opening.
