Fresh, tasty and bursting with flavour, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to sushi in Perth. From the classic fresh sashimi to fusion sushi rolls filled with plum flowers or wagyu beef, it’s no wonder we turn to sushi for a fresh lunch, snack or full-blown dining experience. 

We asked you what your top sushi spots were in Perth, and here are your top picks. Did your favourite sushi joint make the list? Find out below.

Peko Peko 

Doubleview, Attadale & Dunsborough

Just about everything at this institution is made from scratch, right down to the vinegar that seasons their rice. The Balinese sambal chicken and Korean beef will have you feeling all sorts of good. Grab a dipping sauce like miso and ginger and you’ll be set for one tasty lunch. Urban List reader Danica loves that you can also opt for turmeric rice or brown rice in your sushi, and for Fiona, it’s the sashimi salmon that keeps her coming back for more. Peko Peko also makes killer rice paper rolls, dumplings and wok-tossed veggies and noodles. 

The Modern Eatery

Fremantle And Mount Lawley

Bringing fine Japanese sushi to the people of Fremantle and Mount Lawley is The Modern Eatery, which specialises in Aburi sushi—the kind that’s seared with an open flame. The restaurant is fitted out beautifully but maintains a casual vibe. As well as veg, seafood and chicken sushi rolls, they’ve also got yummy tempura, nigiri and sashimi. Chelsey’s favourite dish is the Salmon Oshi, which is 6 pieces of blowtorched salmon sushi with house-made sauce—delish. You could even try a few ‘Japas’ (Japanese tapas) to pair with your sushi. 

Hanami

Mount Lawley 

Hanami serves up some of Perth’s finest sashimi and sushi using the freshest and finest ingredients their chefs can find. Reader Monica is currently loving the spicy tuna roll, which is a reverse sushi roll with raw tuna. Chef’s kiss. If you feel like venturing out, try the Spider Roll with soft shell crab, cheese and sesame seeds. Cheese in sushi? Different, but it works. 

Yuuma

Victoria Park

Located along the bustling Albany Highway strip in Victoria Park, Yuuma has fast become one of our go-tos for next-level contemporary Japanese dining and premium sashimi. If you’re a sushi fanatic, you have to order one of Yuuma’s sushi cakes. Big enough for 10 people to dig into, it’s layered with rice, seaweed and flavourings, and topped with sashimi and caviar. Order yours here

Haru Sushi N Bento

Fremantle 

Come lunchtime, there are lines out the door at Haru with eager locals, business owners and uni students trying to get their sushi fix. Tucked away on William Street (next to Short Order) this little Freo gem lets you grab a container and fill it with everything your stomach desires, so there’s no need to choose between your favourite flavours. The sushi pieces are massive, and when you get to the checkout, you can pour delish Kewpie and soy sauce on your pick, and better yet, lunch here won’t break the bank. 

Jaws 

Perth CBD

Jaws has a few locations in the CBD, so you can easily swing by if you have a hankering for sushi while out and about in the city. Served on a sushi train, there are heaps of rolls, nigiri and lightly seared aburi plates tempting you as they make their way around on the conveyor belt. Reader Sylvia is a fan of their many great options, and how fresh everything tastes. If you can’t get enough, you can also order a sushi platter for your next shindig or event, so everyone can get a taste of Jaws’ superb sushi.

Silver Sushi 

Willetton And Palmyra 

South of the river folks can hit up Silver Sushi for all their sushi and sashimi needs. There are the crowd-pleasing California, katsu chicken and raw tuna rolls, as well as nigiri topped with scallop, prawn, eel and more. Michelle’s recommendation is the Aburi Salmon Uramaki, which comes with torched salmon and is drizzled in spicy mayo. Yum. 

Sushi Wawa 

Innaloo

All aboard for one of Perth’s most impressive sushi trains. At 62 metres long, this bad boy is chockablock with mouth-watering sushi. Pick your faves off the conveyor belt, or order straight from the menu. Apart from all the sushi you can imagine, there are also side dishes such as edamame, spring rolls and gyoza to complement your plates of nori and nigiri. You’ll have to make a few trips to Sushi Wawa to sample all of the dishes on offer, but we don’t mind an excuse to keep coming back. 

Super Tetsudo

Carousel, Claremont and Karrinyup 

Not your usual sushi train, Super Tetsudo delivers your sushi on a super speedy express train, so you can get your sushi in a flash. There’s maki, nigiri and sashimi sushi, and also sake, beers and cocktails to wash it down with. Take a seat inside the Carousel or Karrinyup Shopping Centre when you need a break from all that shopping, and let the sushi come to you. 

Aisuru

Northbridge 

Aisuru Sushi has some serious street cred in the sushi game and for good reason. There are all sorts of Japanese goodness going on here and you’ll be seriously stuck on what to choose. Try the Plum Flower Roll with teriyaki chicken, or the Dragon Roll with tempura prawn, cucumber and unagi eel. The Baconator is also pretty spesh, with asparagus, tomato and red onion wrapped in a double layer of flamed bacon. Aisuru has heaps of cool flavour combos, and we’re here for it.
