When the first Japanese restaurant opened in Sweden in 1973, Swedes hardly knew what soya was. And we were even more clueless about sushi. What, raw fish for dinner! That has definitely changed. Today, sushi and the Japanese food culture are common in Swedish everyday food, and you’ll see plenty of sushi places wherever you go in Stockholm. These days, most of us know what wasabi and tamagoyaki are.

The Swedes – and the Stockholmers – have really embraced this traditional Japanese dish made of prepared vinegared rice accompanied by various ingredients, such as seafood and vegetables. And no wonder we love it; it tastes good, looks good, and it’s healthy.

Enjoy Stockholm’s best sushi restaurants


So, how do you find Stockholm’s best sushi restaurants? All areas of Stockholm are filled with sushi spots. Some of them are top-class Michelin star restaurants, and some of them are more friendly neighborhood places. To help you find the right sushi restaurant for you in Stockholm, we’ve selected some of the city’s top choices. Welcome to a Japanese culinary journey!

01

Sushi Sho

This small Michelin guide restaurant is definitely worth visiting if you’re in the mood for a pleasant evening with some fancier high-quality sushi. They have raised the bar for sushi in Stockholm, and they use a lot of local fish such as Swedish tuna and mackerel. Apart from the delicious food, the restaurant offers paired sake to the menu. Book this place way in advance as the place is tiny and the spots are highly in demand. We would advise you to choose the bar seats to enjoy the beauty of preparing the dishes.

Soyokaze

Soyokaze is a family-run business in the northern parts of Vasastan and one of the absolute best sushi restaurants in Stockholm. They serve their sushi Omakase and the dishes are of high quality and beautifully presented. Omakase means “I leave it to you” in Japanese, and in practice, this means that the chef chooses the ingredients, dishes, and presentation.

The restaurant only has 12 seats, and the preset menu is quite expensive. This place is really worth the spending if you are looking for high-end sushi on a special night, but you can also visit the more affordable Soyokafe Vasastan (Soyokase is located in Soyokafe’s basement). They’ll have six seats available at the sushi bar (and more seats in the dining room) with an Omakase tasting menu at a more reasonable price with optional drinks pairing.

All Burn – a 12 piece experience from Vanadis Sushi

Are you looking for delicious sushi or Japanese food in Vasastan? Then you should visit Vanadis Sushi. Here you’re served the great hits of the Japanese cuisine, and the focus is, as the name reveals, on sushi. You can order everything from a small seven-piece to a large family sushi with 30 pieces and also revel in a wide range of fresh maki rolls. Salmon, shrimp, tuna, maki, crab sticks, pilgrim scallops, and avocado – the menu has all your favorites.

If someone in your group isn’t hungry for sushi, Vanadis Sushi also offers several other good dishes such as yakitori, sashimi, poke bowl, dumplings, and bibimbap. The drinks menu includes wine, sake, and Japanese whiskey. Sit down and enjoy your food and drink in a relaxed and cozy environment with petrol blue velvet sofas, dark wood chairs, and atmospheric lanterns hanging from the ceiling. If you would rather enjoy your Japanese food at home, you can order takeaway or home delivery with services such as Foodora, Uber Eats, and Wolt.

Raw Sushi and Grill

In one of Vasastan’s cozier streets for outdoor eating, Rörstrandsgatan, you can find this gem offering both sushi and other types of Japanese food. The restaurant has many regulars since its opening in 2003, and they come back for favorites such as Chirashizushi, Kumiawase, and the fried prawns with sweet chili. They also have excellent sashimi and skewers. Raw has also opened an additional spot at Skånegatan in Södermalm, called Raw Sushi & Bowl, where the focus lies on sushi, ramen, and poke bowls.

ESA Sushi

Not far from Raw, in the corner of Torsgatan and St Eriksgatan, you might run into a queue of people waiting for another one of Stockholm’s best sushi offerings. Nicely decorated and even nicer in taste, the sushi at ESA Sushi is worth a gold star. It is also very affordable with a great price for 10 big pieces of their signature roll. The humble place is relatively small, but you can enjoy the food by ordering takeaway. Their toppings are really good and include, among many others, chili mayonnaise, pickled onion, and seaweed salad.

Hattori Sushi Devil

Centrally located at the end of Drottninggatan lies this popular sushi spot for lunch and dinner. The sushi is excellent, and both miso soup and green tea are generously included in the meal. The restaurant also gets a plus for the friendly staff. You can also find Hattori Sushi Devil in the food market K25 on Kungsgatan.

Blue Light Yokohama

​In Södermalm, Blue Light Yokohama offers Japanese soul food according to the seasons. They call themselves “Little Japan” and serve the dishes in a traditional izakaya way where you get a lot of small dishes served as soon as they are made. Their sushi dishes with scallop are a favorite among the guests, as well as their Spider tempura with soft shell crab.

The humble appearance of the restaurant is slightly underwhelming, but the dishes make up for it in both appearance and taste, making it one of Stockholm’s best sushi restaurants. A big positive is also their good gluten-friendly, vegetarian, and vegan alternatives.

Susherian

Another sushi spot worth a visit in the southern parts of Stockholm is Susherian. The dishes are Nikkei-inspired, meaning that they are based on Peruvian ingredients molded by Japanese techniques. At Sushierian, you are served the chef’s choice, which is always an exciting experience. The vegan options are also delicious.

Ölandsgatan 47, Södermalm

09

Ljunggrens

Head to the top of Södermalm’s Götgatan (Götgatsbacken), walk into the mall Brunogallerian, and then enter the restaurant Ljunggren. Their makimono sushi rolls are fresh and creatively composed. Examples are Crispy Crab with crab-mix and pickled jalapeño or Salmon Fruit Garden with a salmon base and ingredients such as mint, mango, and ginger sauce. Or why not try the cutely named “Riender of Norrland” with fresh herbs? If some people in your company aren’t sushi fans, Ljunggren also serves plenty of other delicious dishes with a sharing concept.
