Ebi Sushi

Ebi Sushi is a traditional Japanese restaurant; a second home to the Japanese community of Derby and increasingly loved by local residents. On arrival you assume that your Sat Nav must have taken you to the wrong location – the restaurant frontage is unassuming, the décor basic, but the food is exemplary.

Japanese sushi master, Ebina-san (as he is known) founded the restaurant when the TMUK plant was built in Derbyshire in 1998, it was a go-to for all Japanese workers at the plant. He and his team have worked tirelessly over the years, he sources his fish from a renowned London supplier and this restaurant ranks amongst the best in the country for Japanese food.

I can also thoroughly recommend the tempura, pork belly, all the pickles, gindara blackened cod, saba shio mackerel, tonkatsu, yakitori, and sesame ice-cream. Fundamentally, if you like Japanese cuisine, you will be in food heaven here!

If you are unfamiliar with Japanese food, this is a great place to start, you can request recommendations and a knife and fork, staff are attentive and will explain the dishes if you need a helping hand.

Derbyshire was twinned with Toyota City in Japan in 1998 and Ebi Sushi has hosted a range of high-profile guests, including most recently a delegation from Toyota City led by Mayor Ota.
