The sushi is more art than food. In Barcelona, the tradition of eating raw fish is very popular and today, there are so many sushi restaurants in Barcelona so an extensive guide would be necessary to mention them all; however, we will try to go to the practical and introduce the best options to enjoy sushi, sashimi and other Japanese culinary delights.
Where is the best sushi in Barcelona prepared?
The Minamo offers the most spectacular experience you can imagine in a table. Gourmet menus offer dishes such as dashi broth, bonito tataki, sashimi tuna and wild salmon, and seasoned with a selection of sushi that moves between nigiri, and maki rolls. The only handicap is the price: very high for most pockets (60 to € 100 per person), but the Zen garden and the experience must be tasted once in life.

For quality, price and quantity Sakura-ya Japanese restaurant is the best known in Barcelona. The quality of the food is spectacular and the price of lunch menu makes it unthinkable to see the place empty (about 12 euros). Yes, there is a problem: it is always full!

California roll, shrimp nigiri, or sushi and maki varied accompanying chef tasting menu and very suggestive average price (15 € approximately). Try their tempura and yakisoba proposals, you’ll love it!

Fighting for the position of best Japanese sushi and traditional Japanese cuisine in Spain, the beloved Shunka is another place of the award-winning chefs Xu Zhangchao and Hideki Matsuhisa and they seem to do magic around the big cedar sushi bar. They have a Michelin star, so maybe the average price of € 90 per person will be too much.
