1. Japanese Cuisine Yama
Japanese Cuisine Yama is considered by many to be one of the best sushi restaurants in Rotterdam. The food is prepared with the quality and technique of traditional Japanese cuisine.
You can actually only choose from the ‘Chef’s choice Omakase’ with the fixed price of €160. Order wine, Japanese beer, Japanese or Western tea, coffee or choose a sake pairing with a selection of sake with each course.
Hiroaki Yamamoto is the owner and chef of Yama. He has a passion for creating dishes and is even a self-confessed cooking addict. He loves to use unique, locally sourced ingredients to create his dishes, such as herbs, grasses, and wild plants. The Daslook that can be found in the Netherlands in early summer can also be seen in the Yama logo.
Eendrachtsweg 31A, 3012 LC Rotterdam
Just outside the city center, along the Maas, lies the iconic and historic Zalmhuis. To put this beautiful spot in Rotterdam back on the map, a complete renovation took place in 2020. And it shows!
The imposing entrance and the beautiful interior of the restaurant are worth a visit alone. Under the guidance of chef Lars Litz, they serve the most exclusive salmon in the world: the Keta salmon from Alaska.
The menu also includes delicious sushi. For example, share a serving of 12 pieces of sushi, selected by the chef. Or go for the Spicy Tuna or Veggie Roll. Delicious!

The Zalmhuis has a ‘Sushi Drive Thru’. Here you can pick up delicious sushi seven days a week!
Schaardijk 396, 2909 LA Rotterdam
3. Aqua Asia Club
Dinner with a view! Aqua Asia Club is on the second floor of the De Rotterdam building and therefore has a fantastic view over the river.
How about a Red Dragon Roll, made with crispy shrimp and butter-tender Wagyu Rib-Eye, while you look at an illuminated Erasmus bridge?
As a vegetarian you can eat your heart out here as well, as Aqua Asia Club has a wide selection of vegetarian dishes on the menu. All in all, a super trendy place with delicious sushi.
Holland Amerikakade 106, 3072 MC Rotterdam
4. Ono Japanese Dining
Just like Aqua Asia Club, Ono Japanese Dining is located in one of the nicest areas of Rotterdam: De Kop van Zuid. Different from Aqua Asia Club however, Ono Japanese Dining faces the other side of the city, namely towards the Rijnhaven.
The interior is super sleek and modern and the dishes are true pieces of art. Make sure to also read our in depth review of Ono Japanese Dining on our website!

6. Restaurant Three
Named after the Japanese lucky number as well as the number of restaurants the owner owned at the opening, Three is a classy restaurant that focuses on three different styles: Asian dishes, Robatayaki and – of course – sushi.
The dishes are modern and the decor fits in well with the concept. Different than some of our previous restaurants, you won’t find Three at De Kop van Zuid, but in Hillegersberg on the North of Rotterdam.

In addition to their ability of making the sushi taste delicious, Mood serves their sushi on an actual sushi boat! How cool is that? Enjoying a delicious mix of sushi, sashimi and tempura, the chefs prepare all the freshly made dishes in an open kitchen.
The interior of Mood is very elegant and trendy and definitely completes the experience. Also, don’t forget to end the evening with one of their delicious cocktails or gin and tonics!

8. The Oyster Club
This seafood restaurant consists of a dining area, a bar and a club. They describe their style as chic and stylish, with white table linen, waiters in black and white and – contrasting – cool murals.
In addition to other fish dishes, they have a wide selection of sushi. The sushi chefs start early in the day to prepare the daily fresh sushi and sashimi.
It’s not the cheapest option on the list, but if that’s not a problem and you like the exclusive atmosphere of The Oyster Club, then it’s definitely worth a visit.

9. Shiki Sushi & Lounge
They certainly have guts at the all-you-can-eat restaurant Shiki Sushi & Lounge. Located in an unlikely location, they have known how to positively surprise guests for a number of years.
Their goal is to let people enjoy their sushi in style and they indicate that they do not want to have a negative AYCE image that people may have nowadays, but instead want to offer a top experience through their own identity and style.

Prins Alexanderlaan 37a, 3068 PN Rotterdam
10. Miso Sushi
You can find Miso Sushi in Central Plaza, the shopping center opposite to Central Station. With their dishes and all-you-can-eat concept, it is very similar to restaurants like Sumo and Shabu Shabu. However, it is often a lot quieter here and the sushi is certainly not inferior.
You can enjoy lunch from €19.50 and dinner from €27.50. Definitely worth a try if you want something different than Sumo or Shabu Shabu for a change, but still love the concept!

Taste, quality and presentation are what counts at Azura. You can order a 3-course, 4-course or 5-course dinner here or simply choose the tasty individual dishes. The menu gives a wide choice and with dishes such as Crunchy Spicy Tuna Maki and Rainbow Maki we are definitely already starting to drool. You will find Azura, just like Ono Japanese Dining, Mood and Aqua Asia Club, at De Kop van Zuid and at the bottom of the Montevideo building.
Otto Reuchlinweg 1166, 3072 MD Rotterdam
You have to search a bit to find this restaurant, but it is found on the Coolsingel, near the Beurs metro station. The online reviews on iYumi are extremely positive. Some even say that this is the best sushi in Rotterdam, with friendly service and a good price-quality ratio! The decor, atmosphere and the view may be a bit less appealing, but maybe the delicious sushi will make you forget that!
Coolsingel 143, 3012 AG Rotterdam
Sumo has become a household name when it comes to all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants. This chain has established itself in many places in the Netherlands and is always packed.
Of course an all-you-can-eat restaurant is not for everyone, but if you want to try lots of different sushi you’re in the right place. For a relatively low price you can eat as much as you want, enjoying a wide choice of maki, sashimi and nigiri.
The locations on the Mauritsweg and in the Markthal have the AYCE concept. Do you prefer to order à la carte? Then Sumo Oriental in Kralingen might also be an option.
