I love a good bit of sushi, so I was really excited when I spotted SushiBa open in St Julians. It’s in the Paceville area, very close to Bay Street where a bar called the Wild West used to be. Right on a sharp corner where you can either go left to the bus terminal or straight on, under the Sweiqi bridge. It’s only been open a matter of weeks and I just got around to giving them a try, so thought I would report back.
SushiBa, St Julians Restaurant
It’s only a small little sushi restaurant, but it does have indoor seating, with 4 or 5 tables if you fancied eating in. They can also be pushed together easily if you were a bigger group, although for parties I would 100% recommend booking. It’s a really nice little shop, very clean and nicely done up. They have free Wifi for customers, which I always think is a great plus, and lots of soft drinks and wines available.
SushiBa, St Julians Menu & Prices
SushiBa, in St Julians, have a really great range of sushi options from veggi to fish to chicken, with Hosomaki, Futomaki, Onigiri, Gunkan, Sashimi and much much more besides. The prices are a tiny bit higher than you might find in Gzira or elsewhere, but only by a € here or there and this is mainly down to the much more desirable location, the bigger restaurant, eat in section and, from what I could see, much fresher, higher quality ingredients than most other places.
The prices, as I mentioned, may be a little higher than Gzira, but only just, and are still very reasonable. Nigiri starts at €1.25 for one piece, Sashimi starts at €6.50 for 6 pieces and the more ‘traditional’ rolls like Hosomaki or Uramaki are from €2.75 for 6 pieces to €7.50 for 6 pieces, depending on the ingredients.
I ordered myself 6 pieces of California roll, 6 pieces of salmon Sashimi and 6 pieces of tuna & philly Futomaki for take away and it was delicious. I actually ordered quite a lot for one person for dinner and the rest will give me a delicious snack tomorrow! The sushi is so fresh and SushiBa has become my absolute favourite sushi takeaway so far, highly, highly recommend.

I paid for the food myself and SushiBa have no idea I’ll be writing or posting this.
