The sashimi was excellent and equivalent to that overseas.
The salmon tempura was awful and should be removed from the sushi/sashimi concept.
The choice of non-alcoholic drinks was non-existent. The evening we visited restricted to coke or water.
The bamboo bar stools were the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced.

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 !!
