“If you like sushi you must visit here!!!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Quite simply, this is by far the best Sushi I have ever eaten.

The location is VERY informal, since the "restaurant" is effectively just 7 stools next to a bar in the market. However, the food is absolutely superb; there is a wide selection on the menu, very reasonably priced. Sushi Passion has a staff of one - the chef - who takes your order and then prepares it in front of you while you wait. He's also happy to talk to you about the process of making sushi if he's not too busy.

If you're a fan of raw fish, you absolutely must visit this place. It's a hidden gem!

Only about 7 seats available at the Sushi bar. In the middle of a bustling market.

Sushi like this elsewhere would easily be 3-4 time the cost charged here.

“Ahhhhh lush”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We visited today after a recommendation, being a Wednesday lunch time we didn't bother to book and were the only people sitting at the six chairs for a while but this tiny gem of a restaurant soon filled up so if you are making a special trip book ahead (he's on Facebook).
My hubby and started with some Miso soup which warmed us on this cold day and tasted wonderful, we then shared a plate of sushi that was made fresh to order in front of us.
The Polish guy running this place has been trained all over the world, is happy to answer any questions, show you what to do, make recommendations, and have his photo taken! Super friendly and very talented - perfect. (he also does sushi making classes)
The food was very good, and very fresh but best of all it was amazing value. I have already promised myself that I will never eat sushi in Selfridge's again but this place just confirms what a poor and expensive attempt at sushi that place is!"
Try it, you will not be disappointed.

“Fantastic sushi!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Great find and highly recommended. Came back from a holiday in Japan and was desperate to find a sushi place in Birmingham. Probably the best place in Birmingham for good sushi!

“Amazing”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Another great find thanks to Trip Advisor.
This is a tiny stall within Birmingham Market.
With just seven stools along the front of it, don't let this lead you to think that Adam (the sole person and boss) it creating anything less than brilliant sushi.
Due to the size its a good idea to choose and phone in your order beforehand, and Adam has made this straightforward by putting it all on Facebook, just search under Sushi Passion.
In addition to the wonderful food is the entertainment of watching Adam create these works of very tasty art, right in front of you.
When you've finished pop round the corner to watch an off beat film, ensconced in an armchair at The Electric Cinema.
