Some of the best sushi in the city at this new central cafe for an old Restalrig favourite.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017/18 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Previously a little-known star based out in Restalrig, Soul Sushi kept a low profile by only offering food for delivery or collection. But after a brief hiatus, chef Tom Hyde plans to introduce his fantastic sushi to the heart of the city. His new café-style base (in the old Knight's Kitchen premises in Nicholson Street) will feature pre-packed fridge boxes to takeaway, home delivery and limited seating. Alongside his trademark hosomaki, nigiri, rolls and sashimi, there will also be fresh salads and miso soups with tofu or salmon, while a 50% discount on all fridge boxes in the last half hour of opening is definitely worth knowing about.
