No one can deny the pleasure of biting into a succulent, well treated piece of uramaki and tell me that sushi is not a soul-healing food. So the next time you’re in the mood for some seafood devouring, hit these restaurants that offer the best sushi in the best city.
This restaurant is probably the oldest and most reputable Japanese themed eatery in Lahore. Hailed by sushi lovers as the ‘authentic sushi place’, it is also praised throughout the country for its selection and use of high-quality ingredients and fresh seafood (which is a great feat in a city far from sea). The nigari and maki are the most praised, so is the prawn tempura, which technically isn’t sushi, but a must try if you visit Fujiyama.
Gai’a won over our hearts with its amazing, innovative Pan-Asian menu, mind-blowing taste and the sublime quality of its seafood. Relatively new, compared to Fujiyama, this Japanese restaurant is best known for its flavorsome and beautifully plated maki rolls. Sushi lovers call it the “maki temple’ and the flavors “Crunchy Roll”, “Volcano Maki”, and “California Maki” have been described as ‘to die for’. For the sushi obsessed, they even have the ‘Maki Mania’ which is basically an all-you-can-eat sushi bar. The flavors are bold, refreshing, and the best part is the fresh ingredients which make the sushi shine. Literally.
Ever gotten high on sushi? The delicious, mouth-watering, flavorsome maki and nigiri served at Bamboo Union, a contemporary Pan-Asian restaurant, can undeniably transport you to sushi heaven. Less expensive than the other two eateries on the list, the flavors in the Chef’s Special Menu are a thing apart. The pictures provide visual proof of the tasty condiments served. The over-all favorite flavors are the “Spicy Tempura Maki”, “Prawn Tempura Maki” and “Crunchy Maki”.
