Best Sushi in Adelaide (for kids)

Family Friendly Eats, The Best of Adelaide for Kids

Welcome to the ultimate sushi adventure in Adelaide, where even the pickiest little eaters will become sushi enthusiasts! Either that or they will continue to ask for sushi with no seaweed like my kids. Rice, my kids say they eat sushi but basically they just eat rice. However at Kids in Adelaide, we’ve embarked on a mission to uncover the city’s best sushi spots that cater specifically to kids (and their discerning taste buds). Prepare for a mouthwatering experience filled with laughter and ridiculous chopstick challenges that will have your little ones saying “arigato” in no time.

From colorful fish-shaped creations to bite-sized rolls bursting with flavor, eat in, take away, trains, restaurants and even sushi disguised as a burrito… are some of Adelaide’s best. PS No waiting, kid friendly options, eat with your hands….plus it’s (mostly) healthy for the win!    

Sushi Hub – Sushi Go Round

Find Sushi Hub at each end of Rundle Mall and the added bonus of a sit down sushi Go Round at the Pulteney St end. 

We can’t go to the mall with out picking up an iconic takeaway sushi sandwich (yep TRIANGLES of sushi goodness) and now the Rundle Sqaure store has launched 45minute sit down unlimited sushi & sushimi for $36 (adults) $26 (children under 1.3m). Of course you can also just pay per plate in the traditional manner.

This has to be one of Adelaides most popular, best and freshest sushi options!

Sushi Burri

Is it sushi? Is it a burrito? IT’S BOTH!

Sushi Burri in Waymouth St, Adelaide is PERFECT for kids who might be a little aprehensive about trying sushi. They are Adelaide’s first sushi burrito & say it’s a “bigger, better version of your traditional sushi.” We can’t help but agree.

Plus it’s a super cool little shop – sit inside or enjoy the sun outside on a nice day.

All you can eat sushi for a set price at OKAMI

Yep you read that right. Anyone else love a quick and easy sushi dinner with the kids?

Sushi Bar Genki

This one is on Gouger St in Adelaide, so you just know it’s gonna be good! Plus they do heaps more than just sushi, they serve a full range of Japanese food, including stuff your kids probably haven’t tried before (sea urchin, anyone?). Go for the sushi, stay for the scallops & sashimi. Yummo. 

Mugen Sushi Train

This one is in North Adelaide Village. Kids love booth seating, right & these big comfy booths are a hit! Our kids loved the good ‘ol Teriyaki Chicken, while we opted for some Tempura. Five stars all round!

Sushi Arari, Woodcroft

The little sushi store that could! Sushi Arari is in the Woodcroft Town Shopping Centre & doesn’t have much of a social media presence but they get HEAPS of great Google reviews which is always a good sign. Plus it’s always nice to support a small, family owned business. 

Be sure to head in next time you’re down south! 

Taki Sushi, Adelaide

Fresh and healthy, Taka Sushi in Rundle Place is great for sushi-lovers of all ages. It’s a convenient and inexpensive lunch without compromising on delicious, quality food. Us adults devoured the Spicy Katsu Chicken and the kids raved on about the tuna and avocado rolls. Check out their opening hours. 

Go for the sushi, but save room for some dumplings because… YUM!

Sushi Planet

Not gonna lie, we may have included this one more for the parents than the kids…..cause sushi + cocktails? UM YES PLEASE! 

Sushi Planet has been a staple of West Terrace in the city for a long time now. They do lunch, dinner AND free delivery if you order the minimum amount (which is never an issue in our house!). Perfect for grabbing on your way to or from town.

  • Our teachers have worked hard again this year. We think they ALL deserve a medal. Lots of teachers are also parents so have not only spent the year begging 30 kids to be quiet but then have come home to beg their own child to be quiet. We think teacher gifts are a really special way to show your appreciation for all that hard work. They don’t have to cost a lot of money – it’s definitely the thought that counts. Here’s a range of teacher gift ideas we’ve put together. Some are inexpensive but take some time to make from home, and some are from our favourite stores for those who are time poor or don’t have a crafty bone in their body (me)!   We have also included some local Adelaide businesses so you can buy a great teacher gift while also supporting a small business based right here in South Australia!
