91 West George Street, Glasgow
Opened in July and Martyn M is a fan. Sampling a range of dishes - chicken karaage, korokke, duck teriyaki, chicken katsu curry, and sea bass sashimi he says the "food was brought out quickly and efficiently, and all of it was absolutely delicious".
90 Lothian Road, Edinburgh
This is a Yakatori restaurant with no sushi in sight, according to Rayan D. Think of it as Japanese tapas, with small bites skewered on bamboo sticks and grilled. Try the Yaki Asparagus, and a Cherry Blossom Margarita on the side.
2-6 Ingram Street, Glasgow
Sitting around the hot plate, Sharon M likes to watch "the chef cooking your food while providing top notch entertainment." Be warned: this may involve catching food in your mouth, so bring a change of shirt if you're heading out afterwards.
8 Grindlay Street, Edinburgh
A classy sushi restaurant, you'll spot it from the cherry blossom trees outside the wooden exterior. Try the Dragon Sushi, like Sara C, who declared: "I'm so happy!" when it was presented, alongside her vegetable tempura. The grilled miso aubergine is also not to be missed.
50 Queen Street, Glasgow
Lauren C raves "the plates of noodles are roughly the same dimensions as a human head, definitely no bad thing!" With tables for communal dining, you might even make some new friends while slurping your sushi.
No 1 Sushi Bar
37 Home Street, Edinburgh
Claire C had a "cracking meal" here, of deep-fried bean curd dumplings, ramen and teriyaki chicken, and a side of avocado rolls and sushi rolls. Think sushi is a light bite? Think again - she had to take a doggy bag home. Delicious and filling.
535 Great Western Road, Glasgow
Here you can sample lots of dishes from the "wee plates" menu - as preferred by Elizabeth F. She sampled the honey floss sushi and soft deep fried tofu pieces with a sweet chilli dip.
46 W Richmond Street, Edinburgh
This pocket-sized Japanese restaurant is one of Baxter T's favourite places to eat. He starts with a bowl of miso soup, then some cheese dumplings and the "tastiest beef teriyaki". Nothing fishy about that!
302 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow
Open till 4am on a Saturday night/Sunday morning, why not head here for some different post-pint munchies? Sara T says the "katsu curry is very tasty, as is the tempura, and the noodle dishes. And it's all very reasonably priced".
Tang's Japanese Restaurant
44 Candlemaker Row, Edinburgh
Does raw rub you up the wrong way? Heat things up here, where Fiona H reeled in the pork bento box, which "was lovely and tender". Great for a mixed bag of raw-some sushi and meat lovers.
