Sushi has come a LONG way since it was first introduced into Melbourne and Melbournians everywhere have embraced and love this Japanese staple!
Suchi is a healthy, cheap and ‘on-the-go’ snack and is therefore, VERY popular for us busy Melbournians!
However the food industry picked up on this and thousands of sushi stores have opened, leaving us spoilt for choice. Yet not all produce that quality sushi that we desire.. so we’ve sifted through and found you the best!
Our list ranges from cheap and cheerful to some of the coolest asian restaurants in town.. enjoy!
