The Best Sushi in Adelaide

Updated 4 weeks ago


Sushi is like a highly codified art form. There are dozens of subtle variables in every piece, from the types of rice and vinegar used, to the wrapping material and rolling method. It’s no wonder it can take decades to become a sushi master. Adelaide is mainly obsessed with ramen and izakaya fare, but there are still plenty of spots for sashimi, nigiri and maki-style rolls around the city. These are our favourites.

  • The sophisticated suburban sibling to Yuki in the Hills serves an elegant, two-hour degustation featuring courses not commonly seen in Adelaide. Partitioned away from the bustle of Portrush road and replete with natural timbers, this place feels as though you could be dining in a high-end restaurant in Tokyo.

  • This neighbourhood izakaya shares a lot of DNA with its city sibling, Shobosho, but its identity is all its own. There's a clear focus on tempura alongside a line-up of dumplings, wontons and noodles.

  • A sleek and contemporary Japanese dining experience.
