Best sushi in Norway

We visited recently Alex Sushi to celebrate. We both had Omakase Special Menu. I have to say it was a too big to eat for one person. Food is incredible, the best sushi I had so far in Norway and in Europe. Incredible experience and it's a great idea to seat by the round table where you can see... read more

The waterfront location at Strandpromenaden 11 s a high end, nary a dragoneye roll to be found, chic sushi bar. Whether at the bar, or on the terrace, the ambiance is at par wih the food. We had the XXX chefs menu and a bottle of wine. With tax and tip it was approx 3500 NOK, not too far off... More

Not my first time there, but always a great experience. Went to the historical one , that have way more variety. Brought my son to have him experiencing real sushi (not the all-you-can-eat type teens are now used to). And what is a plus to Alex, is that they have an extremely friendly and smiley staff. Price is high, but... More

Have tried all three - Both Oslo locations and the Stavanger location. Short of Tokyo, simply the best sushi I've found anywhere. Be sure to book ahead and sit at the sushi bar. In each of the locations, the best strategy is to let your waitstaff guide you to the freshest and best selection.

The waiter was amazingly helpful. We wanted a little of everything and he took care of us. His recommendations were awesome. We did not order from the menu. It's pricey but worth it.

This restaurant offers some high class Sushi. I eat a lot sushi when I m on business trips but this was by far the best sushi experience ever. I recommend the white menu and the fried salmon skin. Friendly staff, nice interior. Could not be better.

I love sushi and my family too. This restaurant has a wide offer of fresh Japanese food at a convenient price. In the middle of the restaurant you can admire the chef preparing sushi, rolls and more (my kids love it). The experience is always good and we recommend this as the best Japanese restaurant in Oslo.

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 palace location... 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.
