Wonderful service, wonderful sushi. We’ll be back in a heartbeat.
Been recommended by friends and didn’t disappoint.
Crispy prawn sushi a must.
Easily the best place in Birmingham to get sushi. Price is reflective of the food and service. Very small restaurant but that's why it's so good, not feeding the masses
Simply amazing art on a plate ! The whole experience was fantastic the chef in front of you creating such incredible tasting dishes can’t wait to visit again
Book up don't even hesitate. Fantastic all round. I had very high expectations after reading other reviews and it didn't disappoint in any way. I have just come back from 2 weeks in Japan and this is on a par. Fresh top quality and extremely clean. Service is perfect very friendly and engaging. If you have never had this type of food you will feel very relaxed and encouraged to ask questions. PERFECT
As a vegetarian i often struggle in sushi restaurants but my partner loves them. How ever there was a very good choice for me here
Quite definitely the best sushi I have eaten. We let ourselves be guided as to what to order and were not disappointed. Delicious. Even tried the sake. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would definitely return.
consistently perfect shushi
Great quality food, but definitely book in advance
Gaijin Sushi is fantastic! It's a gorgeous small restaurant with only a few tables and bar seats, which makes the experience more special. The waiting staff are so kind and helpful. It's worth getting a bar seat rather than a table so you can watch the chef at work. The music was great and the food is incredible. I'm vegetarian and I found there to be plenty of delicious options, while my partner said all the different fish was brilliant. Can't recommend it enough!
Gorgeous sushi, excellently prepared & served by knowledgeable staff. The bluefin and soft shell crab were particularly exquisite, thanks!
Loved this restaurant, such incredible food - taste and presentation are amazing. Very attentive and service. Can't wait to go back!
An absolutely superb Sushi restaurant in Birmingham. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to experience amazing sushi.
Great quality sushi prepared in front of you and lovely, friendly customer service. Lovely quality wine too but maybe a tad pricey.
Wow! The best sushi in Birmingham! The waiter was super helpful and informative and the fish was so fresh! We will be back for sure!
We had a lovely evening when we dined at Gaijin Sushi. The food was exquisite and undeniably of the highest quality. We also enjoyed the wine and a gin cocktail from the drinks menu. The ambiance and hospitality were perfect. Michal you have done Birmingham proud.
Amazing food and great to see the chef at work. Service was great. Will definitely be going again!
It's the best sushi we've ever had! We can't wait to come back. The service was brilliant, plenty of choices on the menu!
Myself and my partner visited Gaijin on Saturday afternoon and we had a fantastic experience. We both thought the quality of food was excellent, and especially enjoyed the Soft-Shell Crab Tempura Hosomaki. The chef and service was very good, and we will definitely be going back again. Thank-you.
Always make the effort to visit Ganjin when I am in Birmingham. Great sushi and sashimi prepared with care and precision by chef Michael and served in a delightfully relaxed ambience. Value for money and excellent quality. Highly recommended.
Best sushi in Birmingham for around £30-40 pp not including drinks
Best sushi place in Birmingham. Michael is amazing
Amazing sushi for an amazing price point. Service was a little bit slow. Highly recommend the eel - yum!
Delightful meal and experience!
Products are fresh and the different recipe are either classic or a bit more refined in which the different ingredients bring multiple taste together to deliver a wonderful savoring.
Definitely recommended !!
Visited for an anniversary, the food was great, some of the best sushi I have had outside of Japan. The service is friendly and the restaurant has a calm atmosphere.
Amazing as always !
Unbelievable food and outstanding service. The waiter made it a real experience and this couple with the excellent food made it one of the finest dining experiences I have ever had. Worth every penny and will certainly return
Amazing experience, best sushi I have ever eaten outside of Japan!
Fantastic sushi bar, where good quality ingredients are allowed to shine. My favourite dishes were actually the simplest. Scallop nigiri and clam nigiri were both wonderful, with subtle flavour and variation of texture. I also liked how all the food was prepared in front of you, showed great confidence.
It’s quite small, so would recommend booking. Some people were (politely) turned away who hadn’t booked.
The most delicious sushi I've ever had. The right temperature, very fresh and varied.
I loved the atmosphere and was welcomed as soon as we open the door. Of course the food and drink were brilliant and the service was incredibly quick despite the restaurant being full.I will definitely be making another visit soon.
Amazing little place, really nice arrangement of seats around the bar where you can watch the food being meticulously prepared. The food was incredible, very fresh and beautifully presented. Staff were very friendly and the environment was very relaxed.
Amazing sushi in a really relaxed atmosphere. Staff were friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable
The Best Sushi in Birmingham !
Gaijin Sushi is a gem in the culinary landscape of Birmingham.
The quality of service and sashimi are amazing combined with the intimate atmosphere and interaction with staff are all wonderful and when experienced together lead to some of the best dining experiences you will experience.
My girlfriend and I can't rate Gaijin highly enough.
The quality of the fish was wonderful and the sushi was delicious. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. I would highly recommend them, definitely the best sushi I’ve had in Birmingham!
Unbelievable dishes, fresh produce, amazing flavours and great value for money. There's nothing to dislike about this place. 1st time trying sea urchins and they didn't disappoint, so fresh with a great flavour of the sea. Will certainly be returning
We booked dinner to celebrate my sister’s birthday. The food was delicious, a really interesting mix of fish. The team were really kind and helped me to organise a cake to finish off our meal. I will be booking again soon - remember to bring cash as you can’t tip on card, you will definitely want to.
Had a fantastic meal here on 09/03 - the food was light, expertly prepared and something different to what we would usually eat on a night out. The staff were great and being so close to the chef as he prepared the dishes made it a real experience. We thought it was excellent value and will certainly return in the future.
