Fresh fish, karaoke and sake in beautiful Bristol

Sushi is no longer considered the hipster fad it once was. It has become hugely popular across the country leading to an influx of restaurants and bars delivering authentic Japanese dining. Bristol is no exception and the city is home to numerous independent sushi joints from the cheap and cheerful lunchtime hotspots to inviting locations for dinner and drinks.

Clifton Down Station, Whiteladies Road, Bristol, BS8 2PH
A popular spot for Bristol sushi, Bento Boss offers tasty and exciting sushi and pan Asian cuisine.  The vast menu is filled with fishy delights and their veggie alternatives, including classic nigiri and sashimi made with a wide range of fish and veg. You can also try exotic titbits like grilled eel nigiri. Those wanting a bit of variety can grab a sushi or vegetarian sushi bento box, and they offer plenty of Japanese main meals for your guests who aren’t too keen on the whole raw fish thing! Be sure to wash it all down with a classic sake for the full experience.

This Japanese kitchen and cocktail bar is loved for its cosy and intimate atmosphere, making it ideal for date night.  Sushi and cocktails are given equal amounts of love here at Nomu, and you can order any cocktail and plate of sushi for £9.70. Lychee Martini’s all round? If you’re not drinking you can still enjoy a great offer – all sushi, small dishes and sides are 3 for £14 all day, every day. Dive into some dynamite rolls (filled with salmon, avocado and wasabi then fried) and some classic California rolls.

The authentic and fresh sushi at Fujiyama is enough to bring regular crowds along for some tasty seafood, but the real unique pull is the downstairs karaoke room! Available for pre-booked private parties, this karaoke and sushi combination makes an excellent birthday, hen or stag do or even a work social. Once the sake starts flowing, you’ll no doubt be up to do your best X-Factorimpression. Or, if you’re still feeling a bit delicate from a few too many sakes the night before, Fujiyama deliver their tasty sushi to your very door.

If your sushi eating habits are no longer financially sustainable, then head to Yakinori and attend a Sushi Masterclass so you can make your own! The £65pp course promises to help you master the art of sushi making, offering you all the ingredients, tools and tutoring to help you hone the skill. You’ll be welcomed with green tea and miso soup, offered a sake after the hard work is done and take a bountiful bento box of goodies home with you. This makes the perfect date night or unique birthday party!
