Inside-out, outside-in, deep-fried, raw or filled with popping candy, Perth’s got loads of sushi goodness to go around. There are super fancy places, make-your-own sushi bars and loads of traditional spots too.
Here are 10 of Perth’s best sushi spots.
For sushi and a show head to Perth Japanese restaurant Aisuru Sushi in Northbridge and watch the masters work their magic. There are a plethora of different nori rolls to choose from, but our favourites would have to be the plum flower roll with teriyaki chicken, the Baconator (yes, bacon sushi) and the spider roll filled with soft shell crab goodness.
Kagura Sushi House
For some of the best sushi in Perth jump on the train to Kagura Sushi House in Como. Tucked into an unassuming spot on the outskirts of a shopping complex, Kagura’s sushi is fresh, authentic, delicately put together and above all delicious.
There are only a few different types of sushi available on the menu at Bonsai, but rest assured, they're all fresh and tasty. The teriyaki chicken with guacamole and caramel soy is an unexpected, but delicious flavour combo that's a must-try.
Mr. Munchies Sushi
You can play mad sushi scientist at Mr. Munchies as you create your own burrito-sized concoction OR you can opt for the safer route by taking your pick from their menu. Either way, you can't really go wrong! Our top pick is the crunchy spider roll with deep fried softshell crab...yum!
The Modern Eatery
Fremantle and Mount Lawley
For more of a refined sushi-eating experience head to The Modern Eatery in Fremantle or Mount Lawley. They've got delicious craft rolls like The Green Leaf—deep fried zucchini, cream cheese, mixed salad and lotus chips—or the Fry Me To The Moon—a deep fried salmon and cream cheese roll. You won't be disappointed.
And for something even fancier, Nobu's got your back. If you can take your eyes off the dessert menu (green tea lava cake anyone?), Nobu's menu features more than 20 different sushi rolls, spanning from your regular avocado to salmon skin.
Sushia Izakaya is home to some of Perth's tastiest nigiri sushi and sushi rolls. Our pick of the bunch would have to be the salmon nigiri and the ebi tempura maki—an inside-out roll with tempura prawn and avocado.
James Parker Sushi & Sake
Sushi and sake go hand in hand, which is why James Parker in Northbridge have a good thing going on. Grab the wagyu roll and a sake or two and you're set.
There's LOADS of rolled up rice up for grabs at Mossy Park fave, Tsunami. From the Cancun roll—prawn tempura and garlic on the inside, wagyu on the outside—to the fish and chip roll—fish tempura, roe, mixed chips, tartare and ginger salsa—you can do no wrong!
Looking for more Japanese goodness, look no further!
