Brisbane’s Best Sushi Trains

  • Preschoolers
    All Ages

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.

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.

There’s also an al a Carte menu with more offerings of Japanese goodness. (you have to get involved in their Udon Noodles, divine!)

They also offer takeaway if it all gets too much and you need to make a quick exit.

With plates ranging from $3 - $5, there is a massive range of tasty morsels to treat yourself to. They also have noodles, tea, dessert and miso soup, 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.

Moga, Paddington

This is a funkier, more up market version of your typical sushi conveyer belt in Paddington. Moga adds a whole bunch of personality, ambience and fun to your delicious meal. 

If that’s not enough for you, 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.
