Sushi in Rome?


I’m looking for a recommendation for a good sushi restaurant in Rome. I’ve been here for just over a month and am looking for something other than pasta or pizza. Suggestions are appreciated.

Yesterday I visited the Mercato Centrale at Termini Train Station in Rome. It’s actually very nice. I love sushi and don’t often get a chance to have it, since there’s nothing near where I live, so, when I saw a sushi stand, I asked if they’d have a good selection around 4 pm, as I thought I’d take some home for dinner. The young man replied that they have their own ‘laboratorio’, so they always have a good selection. When I returned at 4:06 (exactly, on my receipt), I chose the package I preferred, left €9,90 to the woman and went on my merry way, happy that I’d be enjoying my rare dinner of sushi. Not. This was the most disappointing, not to say worst, sushi I have ever had! The rice wasn’t even half-cooked and the fish just plain wasn’t good. I looked at the sticker (I will always remember to do that in the future, no matter where I pick it up) and it had been prepared the day before. I’ll surely try other products at this new and very diverse space at the station, but I will surely never go back for the sushi.

PS: Daruma Sushi has never let me down.

What are YOUR favorite places for a good sushi?

Oh no! What a terrible experience. At least you have a good place to share.

I also saw another Insider shared top picks for international food in Rome: http://insidersabroad.com/italy/blogs/student-b…

Unfortunately it doesn’t mention sushi, so if anyone has other recommendations it appears they are sorely needed.

A response came in on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/insidersabroad/) recommending Hasekura Roma. Anyone else tried it?

Hasekura is very good. It’s not cheap, but it’s good! There is also another great place in Via dei Serpenti that is a Japanese fusion type restaurant but I can’t remember the name of it. We go to that street for both Indian and Japanese are there are three Indian places and the two Japanese restaurants right there!

If you’re a serious sushi aficionado, perhaps you want to work as a chef in a new restaurant in Rome: http://www.insidersabroad.com/italy/classifieds…
