Yamitsuki

This is by far the most classic place to get yourself a bite of sushi, having been introduced to the South African market in the early 2000’s, Yamitsuki is one of the trendsetters in the local sushi game. The atmosphere is highly friendly, and the food is simply scrumptious. The menu comprises of various mouth-watering Asian food influences, but the sushi is definitely top notch.

Blackanese Sushi & Wine Bar

Here’s a melange of cultures that you’ll absolutely be obsessed with. Where else can you get a “kasi” styled sushi dish, where you can also incorporate fish braai and pair it with a classic wine? In the heart of the Maboneng precinct, the restaurant is a lively vibe that’s what memories are made of. The restaurant is one of the most highly critically acclaimed sushi spots in Johannesburg, and therefore, is worth the try.

KOI

A stunning minimalist setting is where you’ll find your next sushi dish. Rosebank plays home to KOI, a Japanese inspired restaurant that has the fine dining flare with a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant specialises in sushi, and you won’t be disappointed. The food is simply delicious.
