1890 House Sushi & Grill

Food
A favourite among Cape Town locals, this eatery in Observatory offers good quality sushi that won’t corrupt the purse.

The sushi at 1890 never fails to impress. It’s not the most delicate in town, but when it comes to balancing quality and value, it’s perhaps the best deal in the city. The rice is always perfect, and the fish cut generously. A range of platters offer even more value, alongside the Chef’s Special sushi and à la carte options. The dragon rolls with sweet roasted eel are particularly worth a try. There’s a limited menu of stir-fry and Asian dishes if you don’t fancy sushi, but then you’re rather missing the point of 1890.

Drinks 
They offer a limited list of everyday quaffers at laughably low prices. For something special rather bring your own, or opt for the Asian beers available.

Service 
Speedy service has never been a hallmark of 1890, but it’s friendly enough and doesn’t detract from the great food.

Ambience 
1890 is a restaurant of two halves: the front section with sushi counter has more energy, and you can watch the chefs at work while dipping into the sushi train, while the back of the restaurant is cosier and better suited for lengthy sushi feasts.

And...
Before you ask, the fish in the tank at the front window are just for show… not the kitchen.
