It’s commonplace now for Sushi to be served in meal deal packets, which means it’s easy to forget what authentic, fresh sushi can taste like. We think it’s miles better and so we’ve rounded up our favourite 7 independents that serve amazing Japanese cuisine across South London. For all South London diners who can’t get enough of bite-sized flavours of the Far East, you’ll know just what sushi-sceptics are missing out on. This is your chance to gather up your friends and show them what South London has to offer. Or maybe you’re here to look at the satisfying photos of perfectly rolled sushi, which is fine too.
