Best Sushi

Simple ambiance but very friendly. One of the best sushi plates ever. Very fine, simple, fresh with a beautiful presentation. It is expensive but the culinary experience is the price to pay

Alex Sushi has multiple restaurants in the Oslo area: this one is the closest to the city center and is in high demand in the evening (better book your table!). In he evening you have several choices of menu (White menu, Red menu, ..) with increasing variety and number of servings. I took the White (cheapest) menu and it was... More

A lot of us say this is the best sushi in Oslo. The dishes are not so experimental, but of a very high quality. Their signature dish is a platter of sashimi salmon drizzled in ponzu sauce and topped with delicious big orange caviar that pops in your mouth. The flavour and texture is good. We ordered the black -... More

Ordered a table for two, got placed at the sushi bar. Not quite comfortable seating, but certainly very exciting to look the chefs prepare all kind of sushi with their fresh and beautiful products. So the food itself contained excellent ingredients although the combination of them sometimes left me puzzled. Why would you destroy the flavor of a fresh hummer... More

There are two Alex Sushi restaurants, and we were advised to visit this larger, original restaurant as their menu is more extensive. We got a late sitting at 9pm, so went for some drinks nearby and walked. One of our party had a banquet which looked amazing. I had tempura for starters - very generous serving of about 8 pieces,...

Went for the first time in more than a year and the food is still very good at Alex (Solli Plass). Had the "safe" white menu, which gives you clean plates of good quality fish (No tempura or extravagant rolls).....which is how I like my sushi. There might be other places in the city that serve more exciting plates of... More

Close to american embassy and castle in Oslo but can be difficult to find. Take tram or bus to Solli, 3 minutes from downtown Oslo. Best sushi in Oslo it says and very good service. However, food is coming almost too fast. Signature dishes are the best. Expensive.

Modern, 20th century sushi experience. Wonderful, yummy rolls and tasty sashimi - with original creations. A lovely food and atmospheric experience! A bit pricy, but its well worth the splurge! Recommended!

Yes, if you want sushi in Oslo this maybe the best place but is that good? I am not so sure. If you compare this with good sushi restaurants in Europe you will be disappointed. The service is very nice and friendly and the wine list is poor even though it is a sushi restaurant.
