Sushi is fish in haute couture…
Sticks’n’Sushi is a restaurant that was founded in Denmark. Other than the more traditional family run sushi restaurants, it’s easily my favourite in London.
Unless you’re a sushi connoisseur, people don’t realise the real art that goes into making these objects of beauty; the method in which the fish is sliced, the thickness of the sashimi, and even the art of making the rice in the correct way to create the perfect nigiri.
The only branch I’ve visited is the one in Wimbledon but I’ve visited several times. I love the building itself (a spacious, modern, almost converted warehouse feel), the customer service is always on point and the food needless to say!
I have visited the one in Copenhagen and I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed. It is a lot more extravagant than the one in London; based on the top floor of a hotel, the sushi is more artfully and dramatically placed and the waiters take more time to explain the origins of the fish mostly sourced locally.
If you’re a sushi lover, you must visit Sticks’n’Sushi. I’d say it’s less of a family environment with young kids (grown up kids, yes), great for small or large groups of friends and obviously for that intimate date setting.
