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.

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.

I have been looking forward to Alex Sushi for a while and finally was able to go. Knowing this is an extremely popular restaurant, I called 1.5 hours ahead to see if we needed reservations. I was told "no worries". We arrived and there were 7 people in the restaurant. On the first floor there was one table and almost... More

So I had to come to norway, and Oslo to experience the best sushi in my life! It is ironic, but maybe not so strange after all. norway is known for its fishing traditions, and it I expect that this just had to happen in the end. Alex Sushi is elegant, stylish, and impressive. It is suitable for business dinners,... More

Excellent place for a sushi experience in Oslo. We had the black menu, which is a great meal, with a good variety of fish, perfect sizes and a good wine list.

My partner and ate here whilst on a weekend break in Oslo. The sushi here is absolutely amazing. We went for the XXX menu and whilst it was expensive, it was worth every penny. I would have marked this visit as 'excellent' but quality of the staff unfortunately didn't meet the standards of the food. One waiter bumped into my... More
