Gulf countries are blessed with some of the freshest seafood in the region. Expats from the Far East are a huge portion of our population, which makes sense why we have a huge variety of Asian restaurants.
As a Bahraini, I can personally assure you that sushi places in the Kingdom of Bahrain are exceptionally delicious. In this article, I’ve scoured my top picks of sushi spots that are actually worth your dinars.
SATO, Gulf Hotel Bahrain
SATO is a luxury 5-star Japanese restaurant that everyone in Bahrain swears by. Their sashimi is a freakin’ must!
You don’t need to book a ticket to Japan when you can just go to Bushido. The traditional Japanese restaurant sports high chairs that’ll probably make you feel like you’re on top of the world while devouring raw fish.
Isn’t this the most Instagrammable tuna maki that you’ve ever seen in your life? Duuh!
What makes Meisei special is that it’s an award-winning Japanese restaurant. Why, you say? It has one of the most, if not the most, comprehensive menu in contemporary fusion. I would definitely recommend it if you’re into crazy new food combinations.
Sumo Sushi & Bento
Sumo Sushi & Bento is as authentic as it gets. It also stands out from the other places because of their affordable prices. They have branches all over the Gulf, not just Bahrain.
