The sushi at Osushi is oh so good but the fried shrimp, spring rolls and teriyaki chicken on a spear are amazing too!
Osushi is one of the finest and most popular sushi restaurants in Reykjavik city, for a good reason. After all, who doesn‘t love fresh Icelandic fish prepared with excellence by highly trained professional sushi chefs? I know we do. But that‘s not the whole reason. The main attraction of Osushi is the greatly convenient conveyor belt that runs alongside the seating section, enticing guests with a diverse selection sushi and other delicacies. Each dish has a specific color that represents a certain price. You sit in front of the belt and wait for something that appeals to you to come along. When it does, you pick it up, devour it and then you collect the dishes. When you‘ve had enough, you simply pick up your dishes, bring them to the cashier and that way you will pay for no more or less than you want and need. That‘s what this place is all about.
The cheapest dish costs 220ISK, for which you can get all kinds of vegetarian maki bites, and the most expensive one is 440 for which you can get salmon/tuna tartar or sashimi, shrimp tempura and much more. In between are five different colored and priced dishes, such as maki roll bites, california maki, cungan maki, shrimp and tuna nigiri. Although Osushi is mostly focused on making sushi, there are some alternatives, like grilled horse tenderloin, teriyaki chicken on a spear, springrolls, japanese salads, soups and savoury deserts. And even if you can‘t find what you want on the conveyor belt, you can special order it.
Osushi operates two places in Reykjavik, both are modest, elegantly designed and decorated, and the atmosphere is lively and charming. Osushi is very busy in the night, especially on the weekends, and they don‘t reserve tables so don‘t forget to bring your patience with you. We assure you that the food is worth the wait.
