Wonderful sushi and sashimi, great miso soup, great service - and some very nice sake. Special mention to the very tasty wakame salad and the couple of sushi option with blowtorched fish, which were amazing.
Loved it, best sushi we’ve ever eaten. Lovely little restaurant, would highly recommend.
The food was fabulous, having eaten In many sushi restaurants this one really does deliver, the dragon roll, eel not my favourite, was spectacular, the dining experience is intimate but really relaxed, the service was really well informed and helpful with enjoyable quips.
All in all an absolute must for a food lover.
Well done team Gaijin.
Simply amazing as always !!! Consistently the best sushi in the UK !!
Hard to fund better sushi in Bham. Ingredients are outstanding.
A beautiful, special experience - we loved it. Thank you.
Great service and exceptional food. 2nd visit to Gaijjan and it won't be the last!
Lovely little gem. Its owner run, and service was great. Sushi for me relies on good quality produce and it's well worth paying a little more for, which is what Gaijin is about. I would highly recommend the scallops nigiri.
Amazing food, so fresh and prepared right in front of you. Super helpful service. Probably the best sushi & sashimi I’ve had. Will be back soon!
Some of the best Sashimi and Sushi we’ve eaten - one of us has been to Japan and both of us have eaten more than their fair share! Concise Saké list and peppy soundtrack combined with rigorous preparation and cheerfully attentive service made for a memorable evening.
Service was wonderful, our server cracked jokes and laughed with us and was a joy to have waiting our table. He offered to split the bill up for us before it reached the table, which was a nice touch.
Sushi is fresh, delicious and expertly-made. Absolutely delicious. And there is such a range of things to have. We ordered a special dish (bluefin tuna sashimi) which was to die for.
The restaurant was playing some ambient jazz-funk, which was a bit unusual, but certainly not unwelcome. Actually quite enjoyed it! Made for a super chill atmosphere.
Best sushi in Birmingham. Service is great too. Definitely recommend.
Gaijin Sushi revisited with a former colleague over from NZ who declared she can’t get salmon belly in NZ! Well I know where to get it I told her and a plan was formed to celebrate her birthday and our 16th wedding anniversary with Gabriele Aust.
We dined like kings and queens.
Assorted sashimi, nigiri, dragon roll, soft shell crab roll, a feast of assorted grades of tuna including otoro and chutoro….delicious and melts in the mouth.
Scallop tempura followed, crisp thin exterior, the interior still translucent…divine.
The sake and Kirin flowed so I forgot to photograph the bonus salmon course courtesy of the chef. Marinated in Marin and soy for 4 hours. VGI
Awesome evening, great food and company.
Fantastic. Highly recommend. Great service, delicious food.
Me and my wife enjoyed a great meal here. Really great service from a very knowledgeable waiter too. Will be back for sure
Enjoying sushi is very different to going for pizza or ordering a nice steak.
It’s art combined with immense skill, patience and reverence for this Japanese tradition going back to the 7th century. Eating sushi the right way to bring out its full depth of flavour and complexity, requires some basic knowledge and respect for the chef who trained for years to master this art. Team at Gaijin get it right and show all the love for this art. Service is fast and friendly, ingredients are fresh and delicious. It is as close one can get to this Japanese delicacy without flying to Mount Fuji’s homeland. The restaurant is quiet, people speak softly to not disturb the serene atmosphere and the concentration of the chefs assembling orders. I highly recommend paying Gaijin and its welcoming team of gaijins a visit to explore this delicacy.
Amazing sushi and service - favourite sushi place in Brum
Outstanding food. Service was friendly and helpful.
Good food good surroundings, easy location and friendly staff! Would recommend
Great food and service! We ordered the nigiri set for 2 and the fish was so fresh and well presented. Definitely the best place for sushi in Birmingham
Gaijin Sushi is always incredible- would highly recommend. Exceptional sushi and wonderful service.
Incredibly personalised service and outstanding sushi! Will definitely return!
Simply, the best sushi in Birmingham. You will not be disappointed!
Amazing food, great friendly service. Took me back to my trip to Japan.
It was absolutely fantastic. The fish was fresh and delicious, the rice was expertly done and it was beautifully presented. The service was top-notch, attentive but not overbearing, n the atmosphere, in general, was peaceful. Can't wait to go back.
The best place to visit! Amazing sushi, delicious tempura, lovely aesthetic, and extra excitement watching the chef prepare the sushi at the bar! My only regret is that I forgot to leave a well-deserved tip, for the wonderful customer service! Thank you for making my first trip to Birmingham even more enjoyable!
Fantastic as always. Best sushi I have had outside of Japan, can’t wait to go again
lovely little sushi restaurant . Food is perfect and displayed beautifully
Best sushi in Birmingham. Lovely atmosphere and very attentive service
It was my birthday celebration and our group had an exquisite meal. The food was fresh and tasty, prepared with excellent care. Service was very attentive and the place was spotless and respecting COVID-19 guidelines. We can’t wait to return!
Just lovely. The stuff very profesional and friendly and the food just amazing.
Excellent food and service. Would highly recommend Gaijin Sushi to anyone.
Very cute and cosy restaurant. My boyfriend and I had a lovely table at the sushi bar and we could see the chef making sushi which was fun. The place has only 2 tables and 3 bar spots so very small but cute. The only downside is that you don’t have too much privacy. Also the food was very fresh and nice but overly priced as it was normal sushi and nothing innovative. But overall very good experience and the service was great.
Food was excellent. Not many vegan options which was a bit disappointing as I read reviews that they do.
Drinks are really expensive. Chairs were very uncomfortable and the music was dreadful.
However the service was great and the food was really nice.
Paid about £60 for two bottles of beer, a plate of sushi and some edamame.
Easily the best sushi we've ever had, will definitely be coming back and hopefully on a very regular basis!
Very pleased with our first venture into Sushi. Our waiter was extremely helpful in offering tips and suggestions... Will definitely return
Best sushi I’ve had in Brum. A bit pricey, but top quality fish handled by the hands of an expert!
Delicious food, efficient, friendly and helpful service willing to take time to explain the dishes if you want.
Excellent sushi, very well looked after by our waiter who couldn’t do enough for us. Just wish we woulda booked the bar seats!
Great food! Perfect service! I would definitely recommend it to a friend!
