Description: Alex Sushi in Solli Plass square in Oslo is one of the city's finer sushi restaurants. The interior is modern and stylish with an open kitchen area where guests sit around an oval table, watching the mastery of the sushi chefs at work. The menu includes a fascinating number of ingredients, with some exotic highlights for the more adventurous. The service is relaxed, knowledgeable and friendly. An excellent wine list complements the food, with vintage varieties mainly from France and Italy.

I'm a voracious sushi eater, so when I see highly laudatory reviews, I have to check out the place. Alex Sushi has very fresh, well prepared sushi. However, the other TripAdvisor reviews seem a little over-the-top to me. First, the sushi selection is very limited; they serve maybe 5 or 6 types of fish, that's it. Many of the sushi... More

If you love Sushi, you will have to experience Alex Sushi. It indeed lives up to the reputation of being one of the world's best Sushi restaurants. The quality of the ingredients was nothing but the best we ever had. The combinations were mouthwatering and sophisticated at the same time. It is, however, expensive. But, this is Oslo, so everything... More

I had dinner with my girlfriend at Alex Sushi when we were there for the weekend. They put as right infront of the head chef, so we got to see him create first-hand. It was like a show! We ordered the black menu and the special menu (I can't remember what it was called...), and both were fantastic. The black... More

What do you get when combining the worlds best fish and produce with some of the worlds most innovative Sushi chefs? A fantastic Sushi Restaurant. I have travelled around the world to almost all the great metropolises of the world but have never found any Sushi restaurant better than Alex Sushi.

The place and the atmosphere is to high for their own good. The feeling when you enter is that this is high class. Then it fades, quickly! Slow service, low standards among the service personnel. It takes time, and it's below standard. The food is 1 in the scale of 10! Sorry to say it, but please don't go there!

By far the best Sushi i have ever had (though i have never been to Japan :) ... In regards to the price it is definitely not your every day sushi takeaway place, but for a special occasion (or two ;) it is worth every penny. And considering how expensive everything is in Oslo, Alex sushi is actually not that... More

Excellent food! As a special something, I tried for the very first time whale. I didn't find it extremely pricey, because everything in Oslo is pricey. We sat at the biat-shaped counter and it was a fascinating show watching the chefs preparing the courses.
