Brisbane’s best sushi

We are eternally grateful to Japan for inventing one of life’s greatest pleasures: sushi!

Whether you exclusively eat sashimi, or you’re more of a chicken ‘n’ avo type, it’s time to whip out those chopsticks because we’ve rounded up a list of the best places to get your sushi fix here in Brisbane. 

Sushi Kotobuki | East Brisbane 

Sushi Kotobuki is a well known favourite among Brisbanites, and after tasting their insanely fresh sushi, you’ll understand why. They’re offering up an extensive menu, making choosing what to order quite the challenge. You can’t go wrong with one of their famous special sushi rolls, such as the Crunch Chicken, with crumbed chicken and cabbage and specially-made tempura batter crunch, topped off with a generous serve of good old’ Kewpie mayo.


With locations in the CBD and West End, Ichiban makes it easy to satisfy your sushi cravings! Ichiban’s West End store has a particularly glorious sushi train and their signature Ichiban roll with salmon, scallops, and tobiko is always a good pick-me-up. They even offer BYO at West Village so whether you’re looking for a quick stop or a late night filled with Japanese cuisine and brews, Ichiban is a go-to.


If you want a sushi experience outside of a food court, Ippin can give you the ultimate Japanese experience. Along with the regular offerings, Ippin offers set menus, a la carte and bento boxes to satisfy every need. Along with these memorable experiences, the crowd favourites, lobster popcorn and yakitori grill featuring drool-worthy wagyu, are definite standouts.


This one is a Japanese and Korean kitchen serving one delicious meal after another. Although there are other meals on the list, their sushi rolls on offer are stars within themselves. Their spicy salmon sushi roll is particularly delicious with torched marinated salmon, surimi, avo and cucumber or their equally as yummy spider roll with soft shell crab – De-lish.

Mizu | Tenerife 

Local favourite Mizu is known for their casual, relaxed atmosphere and their contemporary fusion Japanese dishes. Their izakaya-style menu is best shared, so grab your fellow sushi lovers and indulge in a feast of fresh sashimi platters and specialty sushi rolls. Their Mizu Roll with avo, cucumber and tobiko topped with salmon, tuna, kingfish and tenkasu is the ultimate roll.


It’s always a pain trying to decide on which cuisine everyone feels like. Suki brings you the perfect compromise when you can’t decide between Mexican and Japanese. Yep that’s right, a sushi burrito! Suki also offers some pretty fab poke bowls, for sashimi lovers and crispy chicken classics alike. When a simple roll just isn’t cutting it, Suki will always fill you up with some yummy goodness.

Shunsai | Woolloongabba 

Shunsai is home to some seriously authentic Japanese fare, with a focus on the freshest seasonal ingredients available. It will be a dining experience to remember, with set menus on offer for the real deal like their Sai menu incorporating sushi, sashimi, tempura and other seasonal dishes. If you’re looking for something more casual, bento boxes and donburi are offered for lunch – express style.

Wagaya | Fortitude Valley 

Nestled in the heart of Chinatown, Wagaya is the place for a fun bustling atmosphere and an extensive menu of Japanese eats and cocktails to match, plus, their BYO wine-making it the ultimate spot for evening dinner and drinks. I can feel a post-work catch-up coming on.

Sushi Edo | Various Locations

What would this list be without a mention of our beloved Sushi Edo? With so many locations, you’re bound to be within range of a Sushi Edo, where you’re guaranteed a delicious feed with their consistently fresh and delicious sushi. Make yourself comfy on the train and order as many chicken ‘n’ avo nigiri as you can handle…


So whether you want a fine-dining experience or a tasty roll, go grab your sushi fix in whatever form you wish!
