Although Best of Asia is not Joburg's most glamourous sushi spot, in my opinion it's one of the best. Located in the Pineslopes Centre in Fourways (opposite Montecasino), this underrated little restaurant serves up a huge variety of sushi that is fresh and delicious. It's not run by trained Japanese sushi chefs (most SA sushi joints aren't and the majority seem to be run by Chinese), but the sushi is seriously good.
The service is so-so, and can be downright slow if you are there at 8pm on a Tuesday evening, when the place is packed with people maximising on the pay-for-two-get-three-plates special that runs every week (also available with take-out). We go earlier when it's still quiet (at about 6pm) as the special runs all day.
The Chinese food is tasty too, but it's the sushi that draws people back to Best of Asia time and time again.
Ignore the tacky decor and neon 'sushi' sign and enjoy the food. A small selection of local wines is also offered.
