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.

4) Barobao

You’ll find this Japanese-Taiwanese restaurant in bustling and busy Hornsgatan. Here they serve amazing baos with a Nordic twist. These white, fluffy and steamed buns with interesting fillings could be described as an Asian, tasty equivalent to burgers. Barobao offers flavourful dishes at great prices in a relaxed, minimalistic setting.

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. Enjoy sashimi, ceviche and edamame surrounded by pale wood surfaces and raw concrete walls at Sweden’s first Nikkei restaurant in the very heart of Södermalm's most hipsteresque neighbourhood.
