Sushi King, Dawson St

sushi-kingAfter I went to Kokoro on Liffey St a couple of weeks ago, and wrote that I was underwhelmed by their hot food but perfectly whelmed by their sushi, a few of our readers suggested that we try out Sushi King on Dawson St, Dublin 2.   They have a wide selection of sushi to take away, ranging in price from about €4 for a small box to €9 for a big hefty selection that would probably feed two.

I just wanted a light lunch on the day that I was there, so got a 4-piece box of mixed tuna and salmon maki for €4.15.  The sushi was really good, with nice quality ingredients.  They also do hot food, for around the €9 mark.  There’s one offer in particular that caught my eye: €10 for a little bit of everything.  This includes: miso or tom yum soup, rice, sushi, dumplings and a taste of any main (katsu/teriyaki, etc).  I will definitely return to try out this offer and some of their other sushi varieties.


  1. I’ve eaten there a few times. Pretty fresh sushi alright. Plus I like the lack of novelty conveyor belt bollix. The sushi stays put in a fridge like a well-behaved child in maths class. No rainbow coloured everything and little kittens waving at you from every corner. From my many trips to Yo Sushi and Aya for some raw fish, I was beginning to think that Timothy Leary had a part to play in the interior decor of Japanese restaurants. Sushi King proves otherwise.

  2. I’ve been a fan of Sushi King on Baggot street for years, and it’s good to see the place expanding. They’re opening shortly on Camden Street!

  3. Love Sushi King on Baggot Street and can’t wait for it to open on Camden Street (could be a while though apparently – bureacracy….) They do some great bargains occasionally too!

  4. recently went back to sushi king on dawson street after a few months break and really saw a change for the better the staff were excellent and very helpful, the sake was perfect as was the fresh crispy tempura and tyhe selection of main courses were excellent a nd the bang bang chicken was trully tasty
    will and have been back more than once since
