For those looking for authentic sushi in Canberra, I highly recommend Ace Sushi at the Belconnen markets. Been there twice now and the sushi is excellent – very fresh and reasonably priced at $2.90 a plate. The sushi chef there trained in Hokkaido in northern Japan for a number of years and really knows his stuff. My wife and I also spent a lot of time in Japan and this is probably the closest to ‘real’ Japanese sushi we’ve come across since returning to Australia. Certainly in Canberra, anyway.
He prepares a range of items: sushi rolls, sashimi, takoyaki, gyoza, tempura and karaage (fried chicken) and we can’t fault any of them. Make sure you try the salmon!
