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 everything from a quick lunch on the run to a full-blown fine dining experience.
Here are Perth’s best sushi spots.
Aisuru Sushi has some serious street cred in the sushi game and for good reason. There’s all sorts of Japanese goodness going on here and you’ll be seriously stuck on what to choose. Our flavours of choice? The plum flower roll with teriyaki chicken and the Kirika with salmon and scallops. Finish your sushi show with the Banana Split Maki and you’ll be one happy diner.
Haru Sushi N Bento
Pimp your lunch with some of the freshest sushi going around at Haru Sushi N Bento. Our favourite part? 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 owner here is the happiest, most hilarious man we’ve ever met and we’d challenge you to find anyone else who can make your lunchtime dash this great.
D’s Authentic Japanese
D’s Authentic Japanese has to be one of the North’s worst kept secrets. All in the name, this place is seriously authentic and seriously good. Call in advance, make a booking and request the fresh sashimi—everything right down to the rice is made to order. Don’t leave without trying the Patagonian Toothfish—we guarantee you’ll be coming back for more.
If you’ve got the cash to splash, Nobu is the place for you. Everything on the menu is pure perfection, including over 20 types of sushi rolls from baked crab meat to yellowtail jalapeno and spicy scallop. Whatever you do, don’t stop at sushi, load up on everything they’ve got to offer. You won’t regret it.
Hanami serves up some of Perth’s finest sashimi and sushi using the freshest and finest ingredients their chefs can find. Our pick? The simple tuna and salmon sashimi. If you feel like venturing out, try the Spider Roll with soft shell crab, cheese and sesame seeds. Cheese in sushi? Outrageous, yes. But it works.
There is nothing not to love about dining at James Parker with a sushi roll in one hand and sake in the other. The aburi wagyu roll or volcano roll with seared scallop and flying fish roe are the stars of the show here.
Tsunami Izakaya & Teppanyaki
If sushi is your jam, you need to head to Tsunami stat. You can’t go past the Cancun roll—prawn tempura and garlic on the inside, smoked wagyu and jalapeno balsamic on the outside. There’s a reason this place is a Mossy Park fave.
ATTADALE, DOUBLEVIEW & DUNSBOROUGH
Hankering for sushi with a twist? Peko Peko is where it’s at. 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.
Mr. Oro Sushi
When the sushi cravings hit, a mad dash to Mr. Oro will not leave you disappointed. Formerly Mr Munchies, this place is a must-go for anyone obsessed with sushi and its quirky flavours. You can create your own concoction, go for one of the menu items like the cheesy potato roll, or take advantage of something seasonal (truffle sushi, yes please). Whatever your style, you’ll be pleased you gave this one a go.
