About Sticks’n’Sushi Oxford

Sticks’n’Sushi restaurant in Oxford is located in the Westgate shopping centre, a short walk from the heart of the city. Enjoy a cocktail surrounded by warm leather and Danish design, or watch the sunset over Oxford.

Sticks’n’Sushi was founded in Copenhagen in 1994 and serves high-quality sushi and freshly grilled yakitori sticks with a Nordic twist in beautiful surroundings with outstanding service.

Twilight cosiness and perfect imperfection

Oxford is known for its rich culture and the fact that it is home to the second-oldest university in the world. 

On top of that, the city is known for having been the backdrop to the stories of one of the most famous British students of all time: Harry Potter.

Matthew Arnold once called Oxford a sweet city with her dreaming spires, referring to the architecture of the university. Oxford is an architectural paradise—now complete with its very own Sticks’n’Sushi restaurant.

The restaurant offers a harmonic blend of Danish twilight cosiness, thanks to its dark leather, blue walls, and curtains to separate the diners, and the Japanese trend of wabi-sabi, characterised by simplicity and humility. This is the art of finding perfection in the imperfect.

The large terrace is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail, a colourful salad, or delicious sushi – or to just take in the smell of freshly grilled yakitori sticks with the dreaming spires of Oxford as a romantic backdrop. 

In the distance, you can see the beautiful 1546 Tom Tower clock tower, and when the sun has set on the old university town, settle in with a cup of coffee or one of the speciality teas.

The menu is a staple, filled with vegetables, meat, fish and, of course, high-quality sushi. There is something for everyone, regardless of whether they prefer raw or grilled. There is even a balanced mix of sushi, grilled delicacies, and colourful salads. 

The vegetables are fresh —and the presentation is innovative and appeal to the senses. As always, on offer are desserts, Japanese beers, and sake (and if you prefer your raw fish with carbonated beverages, that can easily be arranged, too).

If you are a group of 10 people or more, there is a large communal table in the restaurant where you can dine together and talk with everyone, shielded from the other guests without feeling isolated.
