This quaint restaurant situated on the ever-popular Stanley Street has become one of Nelson Mandela Bay’s treasures. It offers a wide variety of sushi creations, as well as an array of Eastern-inspired dishes that are sure to tantalise taste buds.
The food at Fushin is best enjoyed with others – it lends itself to tapas-style dining. There are main meal options like the Thai green chicken or seafood curries, which are equally good, but the best memories are made around a sharing table. It’s a scrumptiously social affair.
Some favourites out of the Fushin kitchen include, without a doubt, the classic Fushin roll, which is Fushin’s rendition of the rainbow roll. The dragon is also a delicious option when eel is available – the combination of prawn, avo and eel is simply a match made in heaven.
If sushi doesn’t appeal to you, the deep-fried black pepper squid is the best in town and the black pepper crispy ribs will leave you messy and wanting more – the perfect balance of sweet and tangy with just the right amount of crunch.
Mark, the head chef and owner is constantly playing around with new flavour combinations and techniques. As a result the menu is updated regularly.
The carefully selected wine list is small, but includes some spectacular champagnes, MCCs and mostly high end South African wines, some of which are available by the glass. Sake is also a good option if you want to have an authentically Japanese experience, but if that’s a little too adventurous for you, there’s also a wide variety of whiskeys, gins and beers available. If you’re looking for something a little more fun, Fushin’s cocktail menu has something for everyone – from the classic mojito to the intriguing sayuri sours.
The service at Fushin is always good. The Fushin brand attracts some of the very best waitrons in Port Elizabeth, so you can expect to be greeted promptly and cheerfully and be well looked after throughout your dining experience. The waitrons are well informed on the menu and are able to give recommendations according to your taste. Possibly the only fault would be that some of the waitrons are not too well versed on the wine selection.
The restaurant is minimalist and modern, lending itself to a formal, semi-formal and casual dining experience in a way that only a well-loved Port Elizabeth restaurant can. Fushin also has a seating area on the Stanley Street restaurant strip. Its social atmosphere is buzzing – the perfect spot to enjoy a hot summer day and chilly winter evening alike.
A celebration of any kind or a romantic evening for two.

Went to Fushin in Port Elizabeth, wow and double wow! Unbelievable cuisine, Mark, the owner is also fantastic, leave all the ordering to him and be surprised!
The sushi is so good - tempura eel roll is insane - that after eating here half a dozen times we still hadn't tried anything else on the menu. The other dishes are just as outstanding. Excellent quality and well priced.
