1. Bath Sushi

Tucked away on Lower Bristol Road on the fringe of the city centre, Bath Sushi has delicious sashimi (aka raw fish) and speciality sushi rolls like dragon rolls with ‘inside out’ avocado wrapped around nori (seaweed) that is filled with rice and tempura prawns. 

Veggie sushi rolls are available, alongside inari (soy) nigiri and tamago (egg) nigiri. On the non-sushi side you can warm up with donburi rice bowls, udon noodle dishes, and rich miso soup. 

Eat in, or order takeaway/delivery if you want to enjoy at home or in your hotel. 

Address: 3 Victoria Buildings, Lower Bristol Road,  Bath, BA2 3EH

Phone: 01225 330508

2. Hondo Sushi

Come here for handmade sushi and hot dishes like donburi bowls, bento boxes, ramen, and tempura!

Right in the centre of Bath, Hondo Sushi shares its name (and space) with the Chinese supermarket next door where owner Ivan Chen gets fresh fish delivered daily. 

His friend brought 20 years of Japanese cuisine experience to the restaurant when he converted part of the supermarket to a sushi spot in 2019. 

Inside the decor is simple with clean lines and a minimalist feel, but the menu is maximist with lots of offerings including a wide range of sashimi starring salmon, tuna, seabass, mackerel hokkigai, and sweet shrimp. 

Not a fan of fish? Tuck into vegetarian and vegan options like cucumber or avocado maki instead!

Address: 8-9 St James’s Parade, Bath BA1 1UL

3. Robun

Bath’s newest, and most upmarket, Japanese restaurant Robun takes its name from Japanese author, Kanagaki Robun, who literally wrote the book on Japanese barbecuing (and also collaborated on the first manga mag, fact fans!). 

Robun’s modern take on Yakiniku – the art of grilling meat, seafood and vegetables over a traditional robata charcoal fire– means lots of tasty share plates to enjoy (as well as sashimi, tempura, and bao buns).  

Pair your sushi with specially chosen sake (or sip on Japanese whisky or a quirky cocktail) and get your camera ready for the beautifully presented bento boxes and super fresh fish dishes. 

Influenced by the everyday day staples of Japanese coastal communities, the ingredients are top notch with a focus on sustainable fish that is expertly prepared. 

Come here for a sushi-inspired quirky afternoon tea or opt for an evening platter of sushi. Can’t decide what to have? Go big, and then go home to rest, with a 20-piece Robun Moriawase aka chef’s selection of sashimi. 

If you’re really stuffed, why not stay at Robun’s four-bedroom maisonette that overlooks the rooftop of Bath!

4. Itsu Bath

Chances are you are already familiar with the UK chain Itsu and its Asian-inspired food that makes an ideal quick lunch if you’re shopping on Stall Street.

 Known for gyoza and ramen type dishes, Itsu also has sushi boxes ready to eat in or takeaway. Focusing on salmon as the main fish, boxes such as the Itsu Classics include sashimi grade Atlantic salmon nigiri , large prawn sushi with kewpie & chives, California rolls, salmon maki, and baby avocado rolls to keep you full until dinner. 

Definitely better than supermarket sushi from Waitrose, M&S, or Sainsbury’s etc, Itsu’s sushi is a satisfying fast food option and the location can’t be beaten for some people watching while you scoff. 

Address: 43 Stall Street, Bath, BA1 1QH

5. Budo Ba

Previously popular as a pop-up in The Grapes, this Japanese Izakaya (tapas) & Sake Bar should be reopening in its own space on Pulteney Bridge soon. Follow Budo Ba on Instagram for updates and check back here for more!

If you’re a fan of fresh raw fish, then poke (a Hawaiian invention) is another way to enjoy a sushi-like experience with more of a Polynesian influence.

Although it’s not sushi, an honorable mention goes to Nook’s shoyu salmon poke bowls (brown rice, raw fish, broccoli, edamame, spring onions, ginger) and look out for London-based Island Poke  opening soon. 

Sushi is great for sharing on a date, but if you fancy something a little more active try one of these other date ideas in Bath!
