Denmark's Best Sushi

best sushi

Since the first sushi bar opened in Copenhagen in the late 80's, Danes are more and more enthusiastic about the worldwide Japanese national dish.

Sushi, the dish that mixes cut pieces of raw fish, marinated rice and fresh vegetables. This combination of ingredients forms the framework for a distinctive taste experience, which in recent years has taken the entire Western world by storm. 

Also in Denmark, sushi restaurants have sprung up at random, and therefore it is time to find out where in Denmark you can find the absolute best piece of sushi.

That is why we at OpdagDanmark have launched the poll for Denmark's Best Sushi! We want to give you your closest sushi-loving friends and family the chance to give recognition to your favorite sushi bar, and at the same time help us choose the best of the best around Denmark within sushi. 

Denmark's Best Sushi

To highlight and show the way to the best sushi places, we choose the country's best sushi places every year at OpdagDanmark. This is done by a popular vote, where you can vote for your local candidate via SMS or through our app. Along the way we also find the best places in the regions and the 4 largest cities. 

The vote on the best place in the cities is a sample of the regional vote, which means that the number of votes the person has in this vote is the same as in the regional vote.

Below you can see the places that have been run with the title every year.


In the period 9 - 16 November at At 12.00, people have been able to vote for their favorite place among the nominated sushi places.

After sending out confirmation text messages, 7,652 votes have been approved, which is why we can now present this year's winners:

Congratulations to:

  1. Rasmus Kjær

    Sushi is the best you can get

  2. Taha

    How can A siam who stood to win by 400 votes to the nearest competitor lose. I checked just before the vote was over. What is the idea of making a poll if you still want to choose another winner who is obviously determined in advance ..

    1. Discover Denmark's editorial staff

      It is quite correct that A + Siam was ahead. However, they were only until we sent out confirmation text messages. Here it turned out that there are many unreachable phone numbers that no longer exist. We are deducting these votes to ensure a fair vote, and here, unfortunately, many votes on A + Siam were removed. This does not mean that A + has cheated. It may be people who have wanted to help them on their way el. lign.
      We are precisely showing the number of votes to provide full transparency in our polls. We have no interest in votes that have been decided in advance.

    Sushimenia is the best sushi in Aalborg and Nørresundby

  4. Patrick Bøgh Jensen

    Missing niso sushi Fredericia

  6. Sushi is my favorite. And I've been to a lot of places. But the place that beats them all is Hongyu sushi in Husum. It's the freshest and most delicious sushi I've ever tasted and all the fancy places may well go home, they do not reach Hongyu sush to the sock holders. So it really amazes me that this place is not on the list, have you tried it? Otherwise, I think you should pack your hunger and see to it!

  7. Mikkel

    definitely Pin Sushi in Maribo

    1. It lacks niso sushi Fredericia

  8. Winnie

    Soy7 is missing in Horsens

  9. Will Madansky


  10. Amin

    Clear Umi sushi in Vanløse

  11. The best sushi in Denmark❤️


    Our passion lies in the constant search for new flavors in sushi. Our kitchen Chef Noi has also participated in the World Sushi Cup 2013 in Tokyo, so we dare to promise our guests a completely extraordinary taste experience for all the senses.

Rules and conditions for voting at Discover Denmark

Due to great interest in some of our polls and thus increased competition to get to the top of the polls, we have made this page to determine what is allowed and not allowed, as well as what we do to prevent cheating.

If you have a question that you cannot find an answer to below, you are more than welcome to write to us at


You can vote for all your favorites - but only once

Can you vote multiple times?

To prevent cheating and the ability to vote countless times, our voting module requires you to confirm your votes by text message. That way you can only vote once per. telephone number per place, and that way we get a fair vote.

Why do I need to confirm with SMS?

In order to prevent cheating with the polls while at the same time making it as easy and anonymous to vote as possible, we have introduced an SMS control when you vote. End of polls where you can vote multiple times and cheat by clearing cookies or cheating with ip address. With our SMS check, anyone with a mobile number can cast a vote.

All telephone numbers are anonymized in the database. Read more about this in our cookie and privacy policy.

Why aren't all the places involved?

Discover Denmark's polls are through nominations. Unless there are some who will vote in one place, then there is no reason to include it in the list. Especially because we get some incredibly long lists.

On the pages of the polls, you will find up to the time of the poll itself a box where you can nominate your favorite. Once the voting is underway, it is no longer possible to nominate. Here it is only possible to vote for those who were nominated.

Is it free to join?

Of course, it's free. Everyone should be able to participate in their category on equal terms. Therefore, it never costs to join the polls, and since we place great importance on credibility, it is obviously not possible to buy more votes with us.

What must / must not do to get more votes?

With OpdagDanmark's polls, we intend to find the best places in Denmark. We find them by reaching out to people who, through their own experience, can recommend their favorites. However, creative initiatives such as the purchase of talk time cards, competitions and attractive prizes, etc. can undermine this and cause people to vote in places without knowing the place.

To avoid this, we have created lists that describe the things that must and must not:

You may not:

  • Use contests, offers and discounts in connection with Discover Denmark's polls
  • Provide / offer products / services free of charge to people in exchange for getting them to vote
  • Buy talking time cards to vote many times.

You can:

  • Boost your postings regarding the poll on social media
  • Use a prize issued by Discover Denmark ifm. the vote to market your own participation

These rules apply to everyone, nominated or non-nominated. If you experience cheating, contact us at

We regularly check and contact people who have voted to make sure no cheating is done.
If we discover large quantities of unreachable, similar phone numbers, we reserve the right to remove them.

Are you in doubt as to whether an action violates our rules? So don't hesitate to write to us at or phone 70 60 53 32.

For nominees:

On the 1st violation of the above rules, the nominee gets a warning and the votes are removed for the entire day the rule was violated, as well as the subsequent 3 days (or until the competition, offer or the like is completely removed).

In the event of a second violation of the rules, the nominee is disqualified, removed from the list and can only participate again the following year.

For non-nominees:

We have seen examples where non-nominees and businesses want to help their favorite get on the road and inadvertently violate the above rules. In these cases, it is necessary to separate unlawful votes without damaging the nominee's own efforts, and OpdagDanmark will remove a quantity based on time and number of votes at its discretion. We then clearly draw attention to the case, who has broken the rules and when and how many votes we have removed. Therefore: read the rules and don't break them!

Tips and advice for the nominees

There are many ways in which, as a nominee, you can improve your chance of getting enough votes to appear on our map of Denmark's best in its category & #8211; and maybe even end up winning. We have gathered here a number of measures that have been used by previous winners:

Share more than once. It is rare for a post to reach all your followers on social media. Therefore, you may want to encourage people to vote multiple times. Failure to do so too often and in succession will not be considered spam. We also hear from previous winners that the postings are really good at activating followers, so you get more interaction on your Facebook page and good conversations with customers.

Ask the network for help. Many local / loyal customers would rather than spread your message and get more votes. As nominated in a poll, you get a unique SMS code and it is easy to share in your channels, offline as online.

Link to the poll from your website. Your website is the hub for many of your most loyal customers. With a link to the poll, you can secure an extra boost to the number of votes.

Ask for help from local news media. Positive attention to a particular place is also positive attention to the area. That is why your local newspaper, tourist office etc. also has something to gain by helping the nominees in their area. If you have them share your post / link to the poll, it can greatly improve your chances. We see many examples of this.

Privacy policy in connection with polls

To be able to make polls where you can nominate and vote for your favorites while we exclude attempts at cheating and the like, we use tools that use cookies and where you provide some non-sensitive information. You can read much more about our general cookie and privacy policybut, for good measure, we have included that part of the policy that applies to polls, then there is complete transparency.

Here's what you should be aware of:

& #8211; If you nominate a candidate via the comment box, you enter information about name, email address, and possibly website and commentary. This information is stored together with registration of IP address (for protection against spam) in our database

& #8211; When you vote, information about time, phone number and voice dialing is stored in our database, which only Discover Denmark has access to. We do this purely in order to show the number of votes and find a winner. None of this information is disclosed to 3rd party. 

& #8211; To prevent cheating, we continually check and contact some of the phone numbers that have been used to vote. Therefore, we may call you if you have voted.

You do not provide any sensitive information when you participate in our polls. The name, telephone number, mail and ip address are counted as personal data and we have therefore taken all security measures to ensure that no one besides OpdagDanmark's trusted employees can access this data.

We continually delete data from our polls when they are no longer used on the site.
