Who serves Brisbane’s best sushi?



It’s a great quick snack, but many sushi cafes and restaurants around town do it much better than some others.

We keep hearing great things about Ginga Portside, but there’s plenty of other great ideas in the comments below.

Where’s your favourite trusty place to buy incredible sushi?


  1. Great blog you’ve got here.. It’s difficult to find quality writing like
    yours these days. I really appreciate people like
    you! Take care!!

  2. Ginga at Emporium is really nice, so is the new Crazy Fish on Brunswick Street……the Fresh Sushi Co at James St is delish IF you can afford it!!!!

  3. Ginga in Southbank is my pick. It can be busy with a wait sometimes but food is always good quality with a good variety. Prices, as mentioned, are above average though. Hanah Sushi, ground floor on the Mater Children’s Hospital is also very good. Very small and pokey but food is also of excellent quality. Best avoided during lunch hours during the week though, obviously a very popular spot for Mater staff and can become very crowded.

  4. Fresh Sushi Co in James street has the best Sushi. It is always fresh and when you eat there you have a selection of different types of soy sauce and the good wasabi (not the crap in the small packets you find at sushi trains)

    The sushi also is good at sono portside and Ishii sushi bar sunnybank hills.

  5. Lots of people clearly have no idea what constitutes “best” Sushi here. The truly best you can only get at Oyama in the valley and Sono Portside.

    Ginga south bank is extremely average, and Hanabishi Wintergarden has also gone downhill. In fact, you can bet that anything served on a train will be far removed from best sushi. If you want high quality reasonably priced sushi there’s Sakana on Sandgate Rd in Clayfield.

  6. There is only one. The place on Adelaide st just up from Starbucks. People dont queue there nothing. Karage with mayo.

  7. Ishii sushi Bar

    reasonable price and fresh sushi!

    2/70 Pinelands Rd, Sunnybank hills!

    Just love it! need booking before you go: 07 3423 7774

  8. I agree with all the votes for Sushi Nikkou, but they do get seriously busy, groups bigger than two or three will always have to wait. I’ve only had bad experiences at Sushi Tram Stones Corner, maybe I should give it another chance??

    Hand rolls would have to be LR Sushi on Adelaide ($2!!) or Sushi Sushi.

  9. Sushi Nikkou in Mt Gravatt will not honour reservations, although they’re happy to do so over the phone. Besides peak times, it’s a great spot, and have a good range of vegetarian options. Top Sushi are also good for vegetarians.

  10. The Best Sushi is at The Fresh Sushi Company at James St Deli. If you want cheap, go elsewhere, but for the best it is worth it.

  11. You cannot go past Sushi Nikkou on Logan Rd… AMAZING. #44… give me 20 truckloads of that one! We call them ‘heavens’!

  12. I concur with Ginga and Hanaichi on the top floor of Wintergarden. Oishii Sushi Bar in Sunnybank Hills is excellent.

    Also, Sushi Nikkou on Logan Rd in Upper Mt Gravatt isn’t too bad, either.

    My cousin highly recommends Oyama, so I will definitely have to try that out soon as well.

  13. Sunnybank Sushi train..you can front on it. Fresh, friendly, great selection and cheap. Problem is that god damn carpark!
    And it is real small.

  14. Ginga in Southbank, next to the cinemas. Can be a little pricey but they have a good range and variety of ingredients. Sushi Tram Station in Stones Corner is also excellent, and a bargain on Sunday & Monday nights when all plates are $3.
