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

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

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!

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.

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 !!

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.

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.

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.
