Inamo Covent Garden

Specialising in pan-Asian delicacies, London's cutting-edge Inamo concept has arrived in Covent Garden for some of the best sushi in London. There's quite simply nowhere else like Inamo - guests place their orders via sleek tablets, upload their own images onto the tabletop and even check in on the kitchen via chef cam - as head chef Jon Claro prepares a mouth-watering range of sushi and sashimi fare.

YO! Sushi Restaurants in London

If you're in the mood for affordable sushi that doesn't scrimp on flavour, YO! is a brand to know. With restaurants dotted all over London, you'll enjoy their iconic conveyor belt, picking up nigiri, delicious rolls and small plates along the way. Plus, set menu offers are sure to save you cash.

Miro

The perfect glistening backdrop to spice up your camera roll, Miro is a swanky Mayfair haunt dishing out global sharing plates that range from crunchy truffled yellowtail maki rolls to cauliflower karaage - managed by executive chef Toby Burrowes, previously at Zuma London and Michelin-starred Elystan Street. The restaurant's ambience evokes that of a nightclub, with neon hues and hand-painted murals contrasting with the exposed brick walls. Chopsticks at the ready.

Bamboo Mat Stratford

From Denis Gobjila (formerly of Chotto Matte) and Victor Rosca (previously at Lucky Cat and Sushisamba), Bamboo Mat is a sought-after Stratford spot for beautifully prepared plates of sushi. Coming with the wave of Nikkei restaurants to recently hit the capital, this joint slings out nigiri, sashimi (including one topped with flame-torched A4 grade wagyu beef) and sushi. Our favourite dish? It has to be the ceviche hot maki, made of seabass, prawns, aji amarillo tiger's milk and salsa.

Tsunami Clapham

A fresh and contemporary Japanese eatery in Clapham, you just know that Tsunami's sushi game is going to be strong. Make yourself at home with its dedicated sushi section; the avocado and cucumber, shrimp tempura and scallop and smelt egg rolls would be great place to start. 

Issho-Ni: Bethnal Green

A sushi restaurant that we consider something of a hidden gem, Issho-Ni is a Bethnal Green dining spot that truly champions fresh fish and the finest in Japanese plates. A cosy and intimate place to eat with plenty of local buzz, Claire Su has created something to really be celebrated in the city.
