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.

We read the reviews of the top few Sushi places and ended up picking Alex Sushi. It should be known that there are two locations. One near the palace which also does take-out and delivery. The other is along the water front and does chef choice menu. On the day we went it was a holiday so the... read more

Alex sushi is not just the best sushi restaurant in Oslo, but I believe you'll struggle to find a better one in many of the surrounding countries. It's state of the art sushi, both visually and taste wise! It's expensive, but well worth the money. A nice treat if you're celebrating something.

Alex Sushi is the best sushi restaurant in Oslo. Good atmosphere and great food. You can choose different set menus, the most expensive menu is Omakase. This is exclusive with a lot of different nigiri, maki etc to choose from. But my favorite is the Black menu, it contains softshell crab, lobster and other delicious stuff. Try also the wine...

The hype around this place is over the top. People speak of it as Sushi served by the gods themselves, but perhaps at the steep prize of the set menus or dishes they would want to justify it as such. However it is traditional sushi menus with the aim to have the freshest ingredients and historical sushi flavors. There is... More

My wife and I had our first meal in Oslo at Alex sushi and it set a high standard for our visit. The service was excellent and we didn't have I wait long since we did not have a reservation. The sushi was fresh, tasty and enough to get full. The total price was about $130usd, including a $15 beer.... More

We sat and watched two chefs prepare sushi as we ate our dinner. It was fascinating and the food was sublime--certainly sushi to convince any hesitant hearts that fresh seafood is food of the gods! We chose the 'red menu'--set menu dinner--and loved it--well worth the price. A definite 'must' on any trip to Oslo.

Great service (which is hard to find in Norway and other Scandinavian countries) and amazing food. I go to a sushi restaurant in every city I visit and this is one of the best I've ever been to. Delicious! Going again tomorrow on my last night here in Oslo!
