The Best Sushi in Neukölln

By BERLIN LOVES YOU . November 4, 2010

Good Food in Berlin will be joining forces with Berlin ♥ ‘s You to bring you Berlin food that you will love! On today’s menu: scrumptious sushi.

I am one of the biggest sushi fans that I know. I could seriously and passionately eat sushi every day. And in Berlin, there are quite a few restaurants that I refer to as ‘the best’ or ‘the most fabulous’, as there simply is a lot of great sushi going around in Berlin. And today, I would like to point out a fantastic producer of sushi in Germany’s capital. Steel Shark is a small mini-chain of sushi shops with two locations in Berlin. One of them you find in the popular tourist hot spot the Nikolai Viertel – a couple of small streets with nice historical atmosphere and shops –  walking distance from the Alexanderplatz with its Fernsehturm. The second location is on the busy Karl Marx Straße in Neukölln. Both restaurants are tiny, small shops where you can sit yourself down or order take-away sushi from.

Unbelievably Cheap Sushi

The best and most fabulous feature of Steel Shark is their price. This must be one of the most affordably budget sushi restaurants in Berlin – obviously because it is not really a restaurant in the proper meaning of the word. You should not take your parents, family or a date to Steel Shark. But if you have a sushi-loving friend that does not need a big, bustling location with dozens of other customers, this is your sushi laden. The Neukölln restaurant probably seats around 8 people tops and the restaurant in the Nikolai Viertel has a couple of tall bar-like tables where you can seat yourself. I would recommend ordering, unless you pop in for a brief lunch.

Unbelievably Yummy Sushi

But that is not all. Not only is Steel Shark very, very nicely priced – the sushi is also amazing. They have quite an extensive variety of the most interesting and original sushi combinations. For example, they do sushi ‘Italian’ style, with tomatoes, mozzarella and other ‘typical’ Italian ingredients. And sspecially their ’simple’ maki’s (which you can get for a mere 1 euro and eighty cents) with rucola, prunes and cream cheese or mango, rucola and salmon – are fantastically amazing. Definitely worth a try, you will not be disappointed!

And not only is their sushi flavoursome, original and cheap – other great recommendations include their fresh and filled wan-tan soup (which costs only 3 euros), the fresh spring rolls (they are huge!) and their salads. We tried  the mango-prawn-herb salad, which was also big and absolutely mind-blowing.

What makes this restaurant fabulous?

  • The food, the food, the food. Fingerlicking fab.
  • The prices. One of the cheapest sushi sources in Berlin.

What makes this restaurant less fabulous?

  • The fact that it is not really a restaurant for languid dinners, but a place for a quick bite or ordering/ picking up sushi.
