We first discovered Edo Sushi during Sheffield Food Festival in July 2011.

As we wandered around the "Eat the World" global food stalls in the Peace Gardens we happened upon their stall and paid a few pounds for cups of their thin noodles and vegetables. We also picked up a flier which showed us where they were located, but to be honest even with the address and a map we were none the wiser as to where they were based! Neither of us had heard of Highcourt Chambers and it doesn't seem to appear on any maps. In fact, it is located quite centrally, just off High Street albeit tucked away on a narrow passageway behind Pizza Hut and The Bankers Draft pub.

One Saturday afternoon in September 2011, we saw advertising boards positioned on High Street that were promoting Edo Sushi's lunchtime menu, so we ventured down the passageway and gave them a try.

The lunchtime menu is rotated frequently, with a selection of main courses accompanied by a choice of green tea or miso soup for 4.50.

On the day that we visited, the lunchtime options consisted of a sushi box, chicken curry with rice, coated chicken with rice and a flying fish and rice combination. The staff also informed us that the gyosa were on special offer that day (6 pieces containing either vegetables or meat and accompanied by rice for 4.50).

I opted for:

Edo Sushi Box

1 x salmon nigiri (rice topped with a good sized piece of fresh Scottish salmon), 2 x prawn nigiri (similar to the salmon nigiri, but with boiled prawns on top) and 6 x Typhoon rolls. The staff explained to me that Typhoon rolls were rolls of rice filled with salmon, tempura batter and a mayonnaise with a hint of chilli). All of the sushi sold at Edo Sushi is freshly prepared on the day; it tasted wonderful and I was particularly impressed with the tasty Typhoon rolls. The sushi was accompanied by a few lettuce leaves and sachets of soy sauce and, my particular favourite, hot wasabi paste.

Emma opted for:

Chicken Kara-age Rice

Coated deep fried chicken served on a bed of rice with a sweet chilli mayonnaise and small side salad.

We both opted for green tea rather than miso soup and received polystyrene cups with tea bags in.

There are no tables or chairs for eating in at Edo Sushi (you can either take it away or opt for their home delivery service), so we took our lunches to a nearby bench on Fargate and tucked in with the wooden chopsticks that were provided.

As well as the lunchtime menu, Edo Sushi offers a large choice of sushi and uramaki (rice rolls with various fillings), as well as other Japenese dishes such as chicken terayaki, ton-katsu pork curry, vegetable tempura and rice and noodle dishes.

The location of Edo Sushi means that you are unlikely to stumble across it. I suspect that much of their custom comes from city centre workers who have discovered it and return often for their lunches. I hope it does a roaring trade during the week as the fresh sushi is delicious and pretty good value for money.

Delicious fresh sushi in the city centre. Good value lunchtime menu. Recommended!
