Sushi Passion is without a doubt the best, authentic sushi restaurant in Birmingham! I love the option of floor seating which really adds to the atmosphere and the sushi here is always outstanding.

They accepted our booking but when we got there they said they were out of space and sat us in the corridor outside the restaurant. There wasn’t really a seating area there either, just a single table. We decided to leave, didn’t want to make a scene about it

So they will just accept your booking wether or not they have space. However, it did look cute, so if you can get in it seems sweet. Still, I won’t be going back, put a massive damper on date night

This place never fails for THE most amazing sushi. A lovely ambience, and friendly staff. No other sushi place in Birmingham lives up to this place.

It was our wedding anniversary and we fancied some sushi. We had seen this restaurant on Saturday Kitchen a few years ago and always wanted to go. We had an absolutely wonderful time, the food was outstanding. We stayed for over three hours, it was so relaxing and enjoyable.

We were rushed out and felt pushed out. It states last orders at 9:30pm the lady tired to clear our table when we had not even finished. The lady had her friends there but it was ok for them to stay. Very disappointed in this treatment we didn't even get time to get a dessert for my friend as it was her first time revere and her birthday.

Attention was nothing special even when I said in advance in what my husband birthday not even a happy birthday for him. The food took over 20mins to be ready, the counter seats on the floor very inconfortable and no way to sit in front of each other. Honestly I was expecting something else but we won’t come back

The place was just perfect. The sushi was prepared in front of us, the waiting times were small, the waitress gave us excellent recommendations and all of the stuff had a very nice yet professional character. The quality of the food was amazing and it's totally worth visiting. The only thing I didn't like that much was the small selection in drinks and beverages, but it didn't, in any way, made my experience less enjoyable.

Thank you everyone for your great work!

Limited seating inside, although there is a dedicated seating area outside but it is loud with cleaners and pedestrians. There was a random table we were allocated through that seemed to be set up last minute outside an empty shop undergoing construction.

Staff were friendly but service was slow.

The BEST sushi place in Birmingham without a doubt! Even though the food may take a little longer to come out, it’s all worth it for the taste!! You can really taste the freshness in the sushi even with the ginger and wasabi. Already recommended to many of my fellow sushi friends and will be visiting again shortly (hopefully with a seat at the bar)

Beautiful food, I don't think you could order anything and not love it. Staff were super lovely and friendly and made the experience a joy. However, being sat outside in the arcade was not at all ambient for our Saturday dinner date unfortunately. Other than that, I would highly recommend, but would add that you need to ask for a table inside when you are making your reservation.

Nightmarish experience! The sushi was mediocre and the wine we ordered terrible. As as soon as we tasted the wine we asked to change it which they agreed to, but then when the bill was presented to us, they insisted we pay for both the wine we tasted and sent back right away and the one we substituted it with (sake, for the same price). I pointed out to the waiter they were making a mistake and even spoke with the manager, but they insisted we pay for both because “they already poured it”... Not the treatment I expected, especially given the exorbitant prices! Additionally, I had asked through OpenTable to prepare a cake for my wife which they did not do. Fortunately, my wife and I were fast to eat fast so that we were able to go to the Ivy nearby for another dinner and actually have a pleasant night. For a meal of well over £100 for two people, it is absolutely absurd to be treated in such a way. Mediocre food and super unprofessional staff! We gave them every chance to at least make things better but their pride and stubbornness always got in the way! If I was the owner I would personally fire both the waiter and the manager, never seen anything like this.
