Here are the best Sushi restaurants in Bangalore.
Let’s be honest, Sushi might be the only dish that put Japanese cousins on the map for international diners like us.
Sushi is the traditional dish prepared with the main ingredient vinegared rice. Vinegared rice is also known as sticky rice, sari, or Sumeshi ( in Japan).
It can be both vegetarian and non-vegetarian depends on your preference.
Sushi is best known for its seafood varieties which are often raw.
In India, Sushi is often served with soy sauce, pickled ginger, and wasabi.
The Japanese serve Sushi with pickled daikon radish. This technique of pickling was invented In the 7th century by the mountain people living in Southeast Asia.
You would typically find three varieties: Sushi, Sashimi, and maki sushi rolls. The difference is Sushi is sour as it has vinegar rice.
Sashimi is a thinly sliced raw meat typically served without rice; Sashimi is salmon or tuna, where maki sushi rolls are usually cylindrical and includes grilled seaweed nori that is rolled around vinegared rice and various other fillings.
The restaurant is ostentatious; their high ceilings and grand statues with Buddha-inspired decor bring a calm and relaxing experience to your dining. They have varieties of dishes which include Japanese, Asian and Thai.
They offer veg and non-vegetarian varieties of Sushi, Sushi, sashimi, and maki rolls. You can order it in 5,8 or 16 pieces where 16pcs one is called a platter.
Their platters are hands down the best and worth your money. You can either order the one on the menu or choose from the 8pcs and make it a platter of 3 different types of Sushi. The best platter combo would be California maki (crab-stick and avocado) + crispy duck maki+ spicy prawn and avocado maki (topped with Boursin sauce), or you can choose from the veg side which usually comes in avocado, cucumber, and types of mushrooms which are topped with different kinds of Japanese sauce.
You can order a side drink which can be of your choice and trust me the quantity of the drink will not disappoint you. You can also call dim-sums, but the amount is disappointing; the chicken dim-sums are the best in taste. And for deserts, they do have some delicious cakes out of which chocolate volcano is the best.
The staff is super friendly, and this place would not disappoint you.

Their Sushi is one of the best in town, with assorted seafood varieties. They serve a combination of Sushi and Sashimi, also known as Nigiri Sushi. Nigiri Sushi is always a variety of seafood like fishes, squids, octopus, etc.
