Sushi Revolution Bar

Dinner at Sushi Revolution, Brixton London

Sushi Revolution opened its doors in May 2021 by two friends that use to work at Sticks’n’Sushi together, Aidan Bryan and Tom Blackshaw. This is their first venture together and so far; we are so impressed! It’s located in the Department Complex in Brixton, a short walk from the tube station. Tom Blackshaw, executive chef of Sushi Revolution has worked for some of the best-known restaurants in London and Europe. Whereas Aidan Bryan brings a vast collection of management experience from bars to hotels worldwide.  

A sushi restaurant with a twist, authentic meets modern taste – every dish was absolutely delicious we could not fault it! I’m excited to be sharing my thoughts about this restaurant as we truly had an amazing dining experience. However, there were some dishes that stuck out for us the most – Spinach and sesame – which was absolutely divine, we had to order more of this as we finished it in seconds! Popcorn shrimp – Chris is not a fan of prawns but the flavour and taste mesmerised him, Japanese Aubergine was so juicy and sweet, and the aubergine soaked up all the flavours and created a sweet refreshing dish.  

The menu

We ordered the following between the 4 of us –  
Salty Edamame with smoked Malden salt (v,gf)  
Tuna Tartar with goats cheese, avocado & truffle onion soy (gf) – exquisite, melted in our mouths.  
Salmon Tataki with kizami wasabi & red pepper ponzu 
Japanese Aubergine with beetroot den miso (v,gf) 

Spinach and toasted Sesame with black coma truffle dressing (v,gf) – a favourite of ours. 
Panko Popcorn Shrimp with chilli mayo chives & Parmesan
Chicken Karaage Naban with yuzu koshu & red onion tonkostu 
Revolution Roll – seared fish, cucumber, mange tout, avocado, spicy mayo, teriyaki, sesame 
Dragon Maki Platter (16pc) – 4pc crispy dragon, 4pc tuna revolution, 4pc salmon picante, 4pc ceviche roll 
Mini Maki Platter (16pc) – 4pc spicy tuna, 4pc salmon dill, 4pc garden, 4pc crispy ebi  
Scallop Kataifi with black garlic aioli 

Throughout our meal, we ordered some of their beer and cocktails by the staff’s recommendations-  

Asahi (Japan) was crisp, light & refreshing. 

Blushing Bride – light, citrus & floral – a perfect drink for people who love zesty flavours and it’s not overly sweet. 

Brixton Promise – Brixton gin/ grapefruit/ Aperol – was a refreshing drink with bitter elements. 

Shiso into you – gin/ shisho chartreuse/ lemon – was also refreshing and a tasty drink. 

Traustein – Helles lager from Hofbrauhas – light and fruity taste. 

This little piggie – market row rum/ chilli liqueur/ honey – was a sweeter cocktail with a hint of honey flavour. 

We ended the evening with Mango Passionfruit Mochi – it was refreshing and tasted like a sweet refreshing mango – it felt like a happy ending to a perfect course, the Coconut Mochi was subtle in flavour but the coconut shavings created the pronounced flavouring. I have since recommended Sushi Revolution to my close friends and family to try their delicious dishes and they all have come back with the same opinion! We strongly recommend going, the staff were friendly, and the food was gorgeous – we had an amazing time and are looking forward to going back!
