Located on Bristol Street, Gaijin is the newest sushi mecca.

Having done a stint at the Great Western Arcade’s Sushi Passion, Michal (co-owner and head chef of Gaijin) decided the time was ripe to spread his wings and open up his own ode to sushi – showcasing his talents with a menu that is smash hit after smash hit.

We have only 10 Seats, because of this, we can provide you with a private dining experience like no other!

We went here for our anniversary after seeing a good review. We weren't disappointed - the sushi is delicious and good value for money. It's an interesting set up and you can see all the food being prepared. The salmon roe was to die for and so was the soft shell crispy crab. Great host too. Altogether a great meal out. Would recommend and re-book. Didn't take any photos as we were too busy enjoying the food :)

Cannot recommend this place enough. If I had friends visiting Birmingham and only had time to take them to two restaurants, I'd bring them here twice.

Really enjoyed our first time here, we would have liked more conversation from the chef who was absolutely fascinating to watch but did not engage with us. Sitting alongside each other in a row was not conducive to family dining.

The food was excellent.

Fantastic little place that is totally unpretentious about sushi but makes it very well. It’s necessarily intimate, since it seats about 12 and all the seats are right at the bar where the chef works, but that’s great because you can watch Michal make your food and ask him questions about the menu. This food is fresh and delicious (and generously portioned for sushi), and the staff are unafraid of telling you that a dish is not available if it’s out of season etc. Very reasonably priced for sushi in Birmingham and much much better than more expensive places I’ve been to. It’s also not kitted out in much super kitsch Japanese parerphenalia.
