So, buckle in pals, because we’re about to embark on a wild ride. Here’s the rundown on some of the very best sushi in London…
With two central outlets in Mayfair and Knightsbridge, you’re never too far from your next sushi fix with Chisou around. These tranquil Japanese eateries will help you forget the hustle and bustle of life as you tuck into freshly made sushi, sashimi and a whole host of delectable hot dishes. Keep an eye out for the well-priced set lunch menus where a main comes served with miso soup, salad, rice, pickles and dessert. London sushi doesn’t get much better than this!
This popular Greenwich sushi restaurant ticks all the right boxes. Meaning, you’ll find friendly staff accompanied by a relaxed atmosphere and incredibly tasty food. We can’t get enough of the hokkaido scallop nigiri and the flying fish roe nigiri. However, if you fancy trying out a little bit of everything you really can’t go wrong with the nine piece aji ichiban moriawase option.
Housed in a stunning, listed building on Grosvenor Gardens, Kouzu offers exquisite dining, with grand decor and top quality Japanese specialities gracing the menu. And, while the sushi is absolutely out of this world, make sure you order a portion of the robata grilled tofu steak with ponzu sauce and brunoise of mixed vegetables to boot!.
Located just moments away from Liverpool Street and Aldgate, this Spitalfields restaurant is the perfect place to refuel after a long day trawling through vintage threads at the Old Spitalfields Market. Yuzu London has a sophisticated atmosphere and the food is so beautifully presented you almost won’t want to eat it… almost!

It can be hard to come across affordable sushi in London that won’t break the bank, but thankfully places like Hibagon Sushi & Grill in Forest Hill exist. Cheap sushi in London doesn’t get much better than this! You can order dishes to your heart’s content, stuff your face and not get a nasty fright when the bill arrives. Nice one!
