Sushi trains have become a beloved fixture in Adelaide’s gastronomic landscape in recent years. You won’t find as many options as you would in Sydney or Melbourne, but the city is welcoming the dining concept with open arms, from the CBD to the outer suburbs — it’s a start.
With that said, we’ve rounded up the most popular establishments and uncovered a few hidden gems along the way. So, the next time you’re craving a conveyor belt meal, roll into these best sushi trains in Adelaide.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, Sushi Train Australia is the chain that keeps on giving. We can always rely on the fresh, tasty plates plucked from the conveyor belt. In Adelaide, you can find seven restaurants plotted around the CBD, from Grenfell to St Clair. Stop in for a quick lunch between meetings, or take your time picking your next mouthful of sushi or sashimi.
If you want to step away from the chain restaurants, step into Adelaide’s most revered sushi train, Jinsan Sushi Express. From classic nigiri and maki rolls to creative fusion rolls and handcrafted sashimi, chances are you will find diverse flavours to suit every palate. If you need something heftier, there’s a selection of bento, including crispy chicken rice, teriyaki beef, and fried prawn rice bento.
Collaroy, Rundle Mall, Norwood, CBD, and More
Chopsticks at the ready. Kintaro Sushi is a vibrant sushi train restaurant parked in locations around Adelaide, including Westfield Marion, making it the perfect place to refuel during your shopping excursion. Expect colourful, bright round plates of sushi, sashimi, and maki rolls. When you order off the menu, your dishes will be delivered on a monorail that hovers above the sushi train. However, this is only available at the Rundle Mall outpost. Still, it’s a fun way to get your sushi.
This little hidden gem might be pocket-sized but, if you can nab a table, then expect good food and cheap prices. There’s nothing fancy about Michiru. Instead, diners will find a fast-paced atmosphere filled with plates clinking and chefs chopping. If you’re in or around Regent Arcade, stop into Michiru for a bite.
