Sushi restaurants in Canggu

By Putri, 04.12.2023

Canggu Beach doesn’t immediately conjure images of Japanese seafood, but believe me, the Japanese diners here have creations you can put against anything in any part of the world, and it will be worth your money! So, if you’re fond of yellowtail or donburi and finish the broth in every bowl you order, check out these restaurants we have picked out for you!

1. Ji Terrace by the Sea

This restaurant offers a contemporary take on traditional Indonesian, Japanese, Indian, and Thai cuisine. It has great views of the Indian Ocean and Canggu Beach, from where it serves up a contemporary twist on classic Asian cuisine.

Trained in Japan and Asia, the chefs at Ji Restaurant by the Sea have collaborated to create a dynamic menu. Chef Nyoman Antara and Chef Colin Buchan led the team in this endeavour; the former sushi expert trained under Japanese chef Yoshihito Kobayashi for 15 years, the latter having gained experience in numerous renowned hotels and restaurants across the globe. They have worked in restaurants like Pollen in Singapore and Marco Pierre White’s L’Escargot in London. They also spent a long time working in Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants and even worked as chefs for David and Victoria Beckham. Chef Nyoman’s traditional flavours are combined with Chef Colin’s diverse and playful cooking techniques.

Ji Terrace by the Sea serves cocktails of top-notch spirits and Asian-inspired flavours. Both the taste and appearance are wonderful. Music is played by a DJ on the second and third floors, starting in the afternoon and continuing until evening. Ji Terrace by the Sea is all about enjoying Bali beach life.

Expert Opinion

I have been living in Bali for ten years. One of the reasons that Canggu is famous for its culinary variety is because, from east to west, the location will spoil you with culinary options. One of the most popular foods in Canggu is Sushi.

So, here are my best selections of the best Sushi restaurants in Bali:

Ji Terrace by the Sea, Tyger Sushi, and Enso Canggu

The reasons why these make up my best selections are because of the quality of the sushi, the authenticity, the ambience, the ocean views, and the vibes. Not to mention, they also have the best Japanese desserts and gyoza! Sake and wine are the best drinks to enjoy with sushi. Take your family to enjoy the flavour of real Japanese cuisine here!
