I reviewed Best of Asia quite awhile ago on TA as it's been our go-to neighbourhood sushi spot for years. Sadly, we'll have to find a new spot. The restaurant is under new ownership and while that means a few cosmetic improvements (like re-covering the worn chairs), unfortunately the sushi is not great anymore. The sushi chefs have all been... More

I'm not a sushi expert, but the sushi I received here was the worse ever. Tuna maki with the tuna still slightly frozen and dry rice . Just not a good experience. The best thing was the Coke Zero.

Consistently good sushi, and take away is fast and efficient. Nothing flash, just very tasty and good value.

Hmmm...one of those places where you don't know if you're eating the real thing or a horse. In fact tonight I ordered a takeaway meal and it came to me within about 2 minutes - granted the place was deadly quiet but when I got home my crispy chicken was terribly firm - like it had been the order of...

Good all rounder. The sushi bar is a highlight but don't underestimate the rest of the menu. Ideal for a quick stop while your car is being washed at nearby Libri car wash (at Hirsch) . Friendly service and a great miso soup. Love the coconut milk drink and take aways also an option. Some weekday evenings have sushi specials... More

I consider myself to be somewhat of a sushi connoisseur and Best of Asia is undeniably the best sushi that I have had in Johannesburg. The meat is good quality and always fresh and the service is good.

Although Best of Asia is not Joburg's most glamourous sushi spot, in my opinion it's one of the best. Located in the Pineslopes Centre in Fourways (opposite Montecasino), this underrated little restaurant serves up a huge variety of sushi that is fresh and delicious. It's not run by trained Japanese sushi chefs (most SA sushi joints aren't and the majority... More

A good Chinese/Asian/Thai restaurant with really excellent sushi. Just across the road from Monte Casino, go on Tuesdays, when you can pick up their sushi from the conveyor belt in a 3-for-2 deal. Indulge and, inevitably, overeat.
