Fushin Sushi located in Stanley street, the heart of Richmond Hill, Port Elizabeth. Diners can enjoy an elegantly prepared meal either inside the restaurant’s quaint restaurant or outside on the hustle and bustle of Stanley street. Fushin is known for its sophisticated sushi creations, and can always guarantee fresh delicious produce, that is by far one of the best Sushi restaurants in the Eastern Cape.
The food at Fushin is best enjoyed with others – it lends itself to tapas-style dining. There are main meal options like the Thai green chicken or seafood curries, which are equally good, but the best memories are made around a sharing table. It’s a scrumptiously social affair.
Some favourites out of the Fushin kitchen include, without a doubt, the classic Fushin roll, which is Fushin’s rendition of the rainbow roll.
If sushi doesn’t appeal to you, the deep-fried black pepper squid is the best in town and the black pepper crispy ribs will leave you messy and wanting more – the perfect balance of sweet and tangy with just the right amount of crunch.
Mark, the head chef and owner is constantly playing around with new flavour combinations and techniques. As a result, the menu is updated regularly. Fushin not only boasts a large variety of sushi to choose from, but also has an awesome array of eastern cuisines. The restaurant is suitable for both fine dining and the casual crowd which Stanley street often draws together. It also offers an excellent catering service.
The service at Fushin is always good. The Fushin brand attracts some of the very best waitrons in Port Elizabeth, so you can expect to be greeted promptly and cheerfully and be well looked after throughout your dining experience. The waitrons are well informed on the menu and are able to give recommendations according to your taste. Possibly the only fault would be that some of the waitrons are not too well versed on the wine selection.
Fushin was founded by Mark Oosthuizen, after starting his career as a chef and trainee at an established Japanese restaurant in Port Elizabeth. Mark soon moved to Cape Town, where he gained further experience. In 2006 Mark’s catering business took off and he was finally able to move his business to Sea Point.
In February 2008, Mark reached his dream and opened Fushin Restaurant and has not looked back since then.
