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!
Only down side is they only take cash.
