The Top 7 sushi Spots in London
For all the sushi lovers out there, this is for you. London’s Sushi scene is so diverse and I love seeing restaurants add their twist to classic dishes
Here is my list of the best sushi places in London.
If you’re looking for an authentic Japanese take on sushi and dining experience, I would recommend giving Dozo a try.
That being said they also manage to add a stylish and modern twist to their dishes if you’re looking for something different. Take their Volcano Maki, for example, is blow-touched for that smoky flavour.
A tip – if you order the green tea its unlimited.
Locations: Soho, South Kensington
Eat Tokyo is the perfect restaurant if you’re looking for classic, affordable and delicious sushi. I have come here on multiple occasions and it has not disappointed. They have a wide variety of different Maki rolls, sashimi and bento boxes. I then to go for the chef special rolls because they manage to blend flavours and textures so well.
Locations: Golden Green, Notting Hill Gate, Soho, Holborn, Hammersmith, Covent Garden
As the name suggests, Sticks ‘n’ sushi serves a unique combination of both yakitori sticks and traditional sushi. All the dishes are beautifully presented and you can taste the high quality of the ingredients. They managed to marry modern elegance stunningly.

Hot Stone Steak and Sushi Bar focuses on the hot stone method of cooking and eating called ishiyaki.
They are also 1 of only 7 restaurants in the whole of the UK to serve certified Kobe beef. so if you’re looking for something different to try this is the place to be. Their sushi is served beautifully on slates and the cuts of salmon are chunky and fatty just how it should be.

Chotto Matte Soho is a vibrant contemporary restaurant which takes on the unique fusion between Japanese and Peruvian cuisine.
