I order from here as often as I can afford to and I have NEVER had a bad meal. The sushi is really well made and fresh, and there is a range of ingredients available. The folk who run it are super friendly and kind...too. If you're looking for good sushi you'll absolutely find it here.More

Very friendly, did a fab veggie platter and took into account the children when putting it together. We had a fun time and my kids liked watching as the food was made.

The two guys that run it are amazing at their jobs and wonderful to talk to. Welcoming atmosphere, go solo or with friends. Very reasonable prices, and close to union street. 11/10 hands down best sushi restaurant in Aberdeen.

Have had JW's twice now, take out both times due to the pandemic. Can honestly say it's some of the best sushi I've had in the UK! Super fresh, creative sushi at reasonable prices. Would especially recommend the Salmon Unicorn Rolls and Crispy Tiger Rolls...- each one was a little taste explosion. Check this place out :)More

I have tried several sushi restaurants in Aberdeen and none compare to JW's - best sushi in town! The place is tiny but the friendly service and fantastic food make up for it. The sashimi is just amazing. I'm always looking forward to my next...visit!More

Always great food for a great price. The best sushi in Aberdeen and possibly the best restaurant. It is always the same great quality and the fish is unbelievable. We keep going back as we have never been disappointed like other places.

This is only a tiny restaurant, with just a few seats at the counter and a single booth, but the food is definitely worth waiting for. We had a selection of sushi and some dumplings and they were excellent. Super fresh (they prefer not to...open if they can't get the quality they need rather than serve so-so fish) and it makes an incredible a difference. It's also fun to watch your meal being prepared - it almost (but not quite) encourages me to have a go at making sushi myself.....More

Booked a table for 6 on Saturday night for a reunion with some old friends. Arrived promptly to find the restaurant closed. Bad crack all round, had to dine on thin air accompanied by F all. Big thumbs down from me

This place is a hole-in-the-wall type of place but the sushi is on point and prepared fresh right in front of you. And the prices are great! I asked for takeout and they packed it so well, I was confident it would reach my hotel...without spilling. Would recommend.More

I wasn’t expecting much. However, value for money this place is on point. Sushi was fresh and staff were fantastic. Menu is small but I really liked the specificity. The establishment is honest and not trying to be anything other than consistent. I enjoyed my...meal and sat at the bar (highly recommend this). Really enjoyed all the salmon and tried the unicorn which was very interesting. One critique is the two chefs run everything and they could do with some additional help on front of house etc. other than that a great experience and felt welcomed. Cute little spot and felt like I was welcomed into their kitchen. Fantastic.More
