For a very long time I claimed (and I still believe that I was right) that Izumi Sushi has the best sushi in Warsaw, and that once you try it you won’t try any other sushi place again.
But when I went to Sushi Zushi I changed my mind. Now there are two great sushi places in Warsaw. And nothing’s better for customers than a little competition.
Sushi Zushi was opened several years ago by Polish sushi masters from three sushi restaurants, considered (at that time) the best in Warsaw. These three guys decided to roll sushi on their own and their sushi is soooooo good. They brought some innovation to the Polish sushi scene (the salmon tartar – now obligatory in almost every sushi restaurant) and they’re always pleased if you ask them for something creative that’s not on the menu.
I also love the decor here. Long pieces of material hang from the ceiling, everything is made from bright wood – it’s both welcoming and chic, comfy and exotic.
You can choose to sit by the table or by the sushi bar. While in Izumi I always choose the table and go with my favourite set. In Sushi Zushi I always choose the bar. You can watch how the sushi is made, talked with the sushi masters and ask them to combine the ingredients that you see into one roll.
And I can’t stress it enough: don’t limit yourself to the menu, go wild. (And do try Autobus sushi).
