Brisbane’s Best Sushi Trains
The only thing better than indulging in sushi delights is the novelty of grabbing said sushi from a moving train. The hardest thing is exercising self-control and not eating your entire body weight in sushi.
There are stacks of places all over the city offering incredible sushi, here are our top picks.
Sushi Edo, Several Locations
Sushi Edo takes the humble sushi train into the future, with the use of iPads at the table to help you with your selection and order.
Kids will love watching all the colour of the huge variety of plates on offer. Rice paper rolls, stacks of sides, Nigiri and so much more, with every plate priced at $3.80 and they also offer takeaway if it all gets too much and you need to make a quick exit.
There’s also an à la carte menu with more offerings of Japanese goodness. Try their Udon Noodles - they are divine!
Sushi Train, Several Locations
From its humble beginnings in Surfers Paradise in 1993, Sushi Train is the conveyer belt, Japanese cuisine pioneers! We are forever indebted to the Sushi Train chain for the food and fun.
With plates ranging from $3 - $5, there is a massive range of tasty morsels to treat yourself to. They also have noodles, miso soup, dessert and tea, making it a great choice, whatever your appetite.
If you’re mad about your sushi, you can even get a VIP member card. Like other loyalty cards, the more you eat, the more discounts you get. Winning!
This is a funkier, upmarket version of your typical sushi conveyer belt. Moga in Rosalie Village, Paddington adds a whole bunch of personality, ambience and fun to your delicious meal.
If that’s not enough, there’s a Robata Grill for you to cook your own meats and fish. Fully licenced, Moga has a great selection of Japanese beers and Saki to complete the whole experience.
I would leave the kids at home for this one and enjoy a date night or fun girls night out.
Love Roll, Several Locations
Anyone that has walked past Adelaide Street at lunchtime will tell you how crazy the queue is to get into this place. That many people can’t be wrong!
The menu at Love Roll Sushi and Poke is huge and everything is made on the spot. With so many customers to cater for, you can almost guarantee your delicious meal will be incredibly fresh.
Their extensive menu caters to all tastes, budgets and appetites. Love Roll sushi is certainly worth the wait and will not let you down.
Ginga, Several Locations
With four very different locations, you can enjoy the goodness of Ginga cuisine by the water, in the heart of town, while you shop or mix it up with a fusion menu at Southbank.
The plates on offer on the train are so incredibly tasty and reasonably priced - you cannot go past the softshell crab roll…heaven - and Ginga Gallery serves up the chef-crafted classic Bento Box - a favourite with savvy diners!
You can also join Ginga Rewards and earn points at 9 sister restaurants across Brisbane.
Sushi & Nori, Several Locations
Sushi & Nori pride themselves on top quality sushi with the freshest ingredients at the best prices, making them a firm Brisbane favourite. Their expert sushi chefs balance traditional techniques with modern methods to create a huge range of delicious dishes. Their bright and beautiful plates are immaculately presented and bursting with flavour.
