With limited seats available and due to its huge popularity, we recommend you reserve a table today to avoid disappointment!
Otoro Sushi really is a step-up from every other sushi joint in Birmingham. While you will find typical sushi favourites like the California or salmon-and-avocado rolls, our suggestion is to branch out and experience some of the best Japanese food on offer. This Chinese Quarter eatery has an extensive sushi menu which offers the likes of traditional sashimi, nigiri, gunkan, futomaki, oyakomaki, uramaki and temaki. You don’t need to be a genius to realise that Otoro Sushi know what they’re doing.
Fresh seafood is key to Otoro Sushi’s success and why it’s so popular amongst Birmingham locals. The menu is full of a diverse range of fish options like yellowtail sashimi, tuna and surimi rice balls and the salmon teriyaki uramaki roll. For something other than fish, delve into squid or octopus nigiri, eel futo futomaki or the divine dragon roll – crispy prawn tempura wrapped in nori seaweed and topped with fresh avocado, fish roe and homemade garnishes. If you can’t decide and want a taste of them all, we recommend a sushi set which comes in small, medium or large sizes. While seafood is where Otoro Sushi really shines, vegetarians are well catered for with the likes of tamago egg nigiri, tofu pockets, pickled radish maki and avocado or cucumber rolls. There’s no doubt that Otoro Sushi in Chinese Quarter is a must visit for sushi lovers, so make a booking and head down to Edgbaston Street with an empty stomach – you’ll be needing it.
