The top-notch restaurants to enjoy sushi in Ho Chi Minh City
It is no secret many of us love eating sushi today.
Sushi seems to be as popular as McDonalds. Sushi shops are literally located all over the world. Sushi is believed to have originated in Southeast Asia where people fish with rice in order to preserve the seafood. This spread to Japan around the 8th century: eating fish with rice was popular among Japanese. From then on, the Japanese experimented and created different types of sushi and this cuisine eventually spread around the world. And Ho Chi Minh City is no exception, thanks to a generation of more worldly youth, Japanese cuisine has started to spread.
Undoubtedly, bite into sushi and you’re almost guaranteed to experience an explosion of distinctive flavors tickling your palate. Tangy vinegar-tinged rice, sweet mayonnaise, nutty sesame seeds, sweet-and-sour teriyaki sauce are just a few of them bound to hit your taste buds when you eat sushi – sometimes one at a time, sometimes all at once.
If you prefer cherishing authentic sushi and sashimi, please visit top Japanese Sushi restaurants in Ho Chi Minh city that are ranked considerably.
Sushi Rei, 10E Nguyen Thi Minh Khai, Da Kao Ward, District 1.
Japanese culture is deeply rooted in respect, humility and harmony with nature and Sushi Rei seems to embody this in all aspects. This is the ideal venue for sushi addicts. The service here is impeccable and the slightest look can have someone appear at your elbow asking in a hushed tone if there’s something they can help you with. A narrow 8-seat sushi bar occupies the first floor and a VIP room in the second which I’m told is very common in Japan.
The intimacy of the place was offset by soothing jazz piano and modern contemporary furnishings which made me feel absolutely at peace but also seemed to heighten my sense of taste. Their sushi chef will carefully choose every single ingredient for Rei from Tsukiji- a very famous seafood market in Japan. And with that finest ingredients combine to his exquisite talent, you will only be served the best Sushi from Rei.
The Sushi Bar, 2 Le Thanh Ton, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1.
One of the first Japanese restaurants to stake its claim in Saigon, the eponymously named The Sushi Bar is a master of what it specializes in – authentic Japanese sushi. As the restaurant started gaining popularity due to its high-quality sushi, sashimi and set meals, the demand got larger and new outlets were opened.

Ichiba Sushi Restaurant, 204 Le Lai, Ben Thanh Ward, District 1

Located in the lively, trendy street food, Sushi Ko’s Japanese menu has been pulling in crowds of young Vietnamese and expats for a couple of years now. It has a large range of grilled and cold appetizers to choose from before just jumping straight into the sushi. The sushi, tempura and gyoza are fabulous and this sushi stall really makes the mockery of expensive price.
