The 5 best Asian restaurants in Stockholm

1) Sushi Sho

Interested in trying Scandi-style Edomae sushi? Head to Sushi Sho in Vasastan. But do book beforehand since this small place only has twelve seats at the bar and four on a sofa. All guests are served each course from the fixed price menu at the same time, by the chef.

2) Farang

Farang stands out from the other restaurants of its kind because it is the opposite of a hidden place. The huge, dark premises and industrial interior refer to the site’s former use, as a power station. The shared food concept puts Southeast Asian cuisine in the spotlight.

3) Tengu

Tengu is housed in the architecture school’s old premises, a 1960s brutalist, concrete building. The restaurant serves slurp-worthy ramen cooked in a savoury broth but even though the food is delicious, guests also value Tengu’s trendy setting, hugely likable staff and lively vibe.

4) Misshumasshu

Skewers, bowls, steamed vegetables, ramen, … The range at Misshumasshu spans a broad Asian spectrum with an added emphasis on Japanese cuisine. This vibrant diner/liquor bar mash up contrasts beautifully with the elegant 19th-century passage where it is located. The magnificent gallery is worth a visit in itself.

5) Indio

What do Japanese and Peruvian food have in common? A penchant for raw fish. At Indio they have created a fusion of both.
