As crazed raw-fish followers, this piece is close to our minds (and tastebuds, stomachs and oxytocin levels).
Whether it is possible to spend £20 - our suggested minimal cover a gratifying sushi evening meal in capital - or it's a particular occasion and money is not any object (or tasks are paying), these restaurants should do the job.
This is a concealed treasure. Located in a plain-looking building only off Baker Street, Ohisama provides regional Londoners delicately cut sushi and interesting dishes - including their particular fried rice balls as well as the battera, a futomaki created from ‘vinegared mackerel, osaka style’ for the adventurous. The sitting area is tiny, so book beforehand on Friday and Saturday night to ensure that you get a table.

An all-time favourite for young Londoners on a tight budget, this site features a peaceful vibe and sits directly on the street opposite Borough Market. Although you eat sushi prepared with rice that's the ideal part of warm, the noises of laughter from surrounding bars drifts in. A speciality this is actually the Nippon mock duck, which comes served with a tangy hoi-sin sauce and tastes a lot better than the genuine article. Pupils have 15% off every thing through the few days.
This Wimbledon restaurant could be the Tripadvisor favourite and does an excellent rice-paper wrapped tuna, prawn, cucumber and shiso. If you’re into gunkan, the scallop is just £2.50 rather than becoming missed. The chefs here are constantly happy to make changes into menu for visitors with unique needs. Residents should book set for among their particular sushi classes and become sashimi mistros yourselves.
The area is convenient proper working in the City or travelling inside and out of London. Moshi Moshi is celebrated if you are the first sustainability-focused sushi restaurant in London and today their particular fish comes by ethical fishing brand Pisces. Back 2012 they printed smartphone codes on rice-paper and nori making use of squid ink, put them on meals and asked clients scan them. They certainly were then directed to an internet site explaining where in fact the seafood within their sushi had been sourced. The daily takeaway selection offers amazing meal choices - we would recommend the Bay of Biscay temaki handroll at £6.90, featuring one salmon and avocado, one salmon skin and spring onion, one Cornish crab & avocado and another kabayaki ‘faux unagi’ eel and cucumber. Energy lunch towards the maximum.

The little sibling to flashier Roka, just a few doors across the street, Nizuni offers the exact same high quality and well trained sushi cooks in an even more calm (and cheaper) setting. Order a half-bottle of sake and also make certain to order the nasudengaku, a deep-fried aubergine with sweet miso sauce that has a smooth surface and may almost be a dessert. Our tip: Ask to stay upstairs by the screen if you're coming with a big team, whilst the location will feel like your personal personal area.
Atariya is a fish supplier for any other London sushi venues - including Ohisama - and appears to have regularly quality produce. The business has actually four restaurants all over capital, but this specifically stands out in usually sushi-bereft Hendon. Dish presentation is less poised compared to various other restaurants from the list, nevertheless the portions of sashimi tend to be generous. The best time going is later later in the day, once they usually provide half-price sushi to eliminate. Yes, please.
Toru Takahashi served for 5 years as sushi cook at Nobu while the precision (or even the fancy styles) is clear inside fish as of this little and genuinely special Clerkenwell restaurant. Takahashi and his spouse serve each meal on a polished banana leaf to just seven diners per sitting. You will get a group menu for something between £17 and £45, so this is an excellent choice for friends with diverse spending plans. Keep in mind, the seats have scheduled up months beforehand - so log on to the phone now.

This famous spot will probably be worth a trip the maximum amount of for the view and experience since the sushi - which will be maybe not ideal in London, regardless of the restaurant’s stellar reputation. Whether you choose to go at night for a unique event, and for a lunchtime go to with business partners or clients, buying the miso black colored cod is a must. The scallop seviche served with leche de tigre, pickled mandarin and shiso is strange and really worth trying, because it shows the Peruvian/Japanese fusion thing at its best.
