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.

My two friends each had a sushi platter, witch was ok, but can easily be bought at under half price in other sushi places. Average food. Since I'm not too fond of raw fish, I ordered a maki platter. To my suprise these makis contained raw salmon, and I only ate one. My friends, tasted them too, and none of them liked the strange-tasting mix. I bought a glass of white vine with my food. The vine was nice, but I didn't even get half a glass (average sice glasses), and for that I paid 120,- NOK -seriously?
The desserts where just as big a disappointment with a green banana in uncooked dough (banana fritter).
Steer away and spend your money (half of it too) elsewhere!

After so many times trying to book online a table, we get one once in the restaurant. It's owner (I think he was) was very kind and we stay in a inner room, around a beautiful solid wood table.
We choose the red menu (90 euros including Asahi beer) and nevertheless we were hungry, we couldn't eat all. So, if you accept a piece of advice, plan your dinner to reach the goal to eat all over the table.

Wonderful sushi, great atmosphere, always good to watch the chef's at work, but be careful how many mortgages you need to eat there. And the sake is definitely better value than the wine….

If you like sushi, this place is a must-go. The service was from the beginning on superb. We had a 3-course menu and everything was really exceptional. Also the German Riesling was very good.
Although it is a pretty pricey place, the crowd on this weekday evening was relaxed.
Definitely highly recommended.
