Had an absolutely fantastic meal at Gajin. The sushi was so delicious and I can't recommend the tempura rolls enough, we are already looking at when we can visit again. Service was perfect too. Thanks everyone at Gajin! Best sushi in Birmingham!

Had to visit after buying sushi during lockdown and it didn’t disappoint, food was amazing as expected fresh and tasty. They have the venue setup to be covid safe but you don’t feel uncomfortable. Well done guys

I have ordered from Gaijin once before and have ordered from several other Birmingham Japanese and sushi restaurants and up until now have received brilliant food worth the price. This order of roughly £75 worth of sushi (for 4 items & some dry edamame beans)...More

I’d book... They have about 12 seats.. I can’t remember the exact prices, perhaps £6/8.50 for three pieces or something like that. Not expensive for the quality if you understand the cuisine, the skill and the ingredients... More
