Simply put, halal Sushi is Sushi that adheres to Islamic dietary laws. This means the ingredients used in the dish must be halal – or permissible according to Islamic law.

All seafood is Halal. So, yes, Muslims can eat Sushi.

However, Sushi could be haram because Sushi uses alcohol called mirin to cook the rice. And alcohol is haram according to Islamic dietary law.

So, to make it halal, replace mirin with lime water or don’t use mirin for cooking the rice.

Been there for the first time and was in love with their food. All the items we have ordered were freshly prepared and taste was so good. Most favourite dish was caterpillar (just the shape) sushi. (Google Review)

Came here on a Saturday night to check out the vibe. The interior is classy and elegant. It is pricier than other places but you get generous servings. The service can improve, sometimes all waiters disappear and there’s nobody around. If you want to dine in elegance with a tasty Japanese cuisine, you enjoy it. The Ramen is my favourite!

Dropped by here for a late lunch on Sunday and was warmly greeted by many staff. Broad choice of cafe/brunch and Japanese food. Everything was very delicious, food arrived quickly, decently priced, and good proportions. (Google Review)

Great place, fresh sushi, friendly staff and also halal certified. Come here for some great sushi (George St – Google Review)

It’s to a good standard I liked the sweet chilli chicken karaage. The sushi was a bit cold though I know it suppose too but it was cold like it was taken out of the fridge (Darling Harbour – Google Review)
