Atmosphere can be something that's a little lacking in some of Edinburgh's sushi joints, but with only 22 seats to fill, tiny Sushiya has a head start in creating that elusive quality. Busy and buzzy, there's a constant stream of customers eating, waiting for tables or dropping by for takeaway. It's a nice vibe, but means you do have to book. While the sushi menu is fairly heavy on tuna and salmon options, it's all very well done - fresh, pretty and pleasingly served in slightly smaller portions than usual, avoiding the dreaded "can't fit the maki in the mouth" syndrome. A small selection of specials provides two standouts: flavour-packed dumplings and an exceptional seared tuna, dusted with sesame and served with sweet miso dressing and shredded cucumber. Huge bowls of soupy noodles beg to be slurped and Asahi and Sapporo are served in glasses chilled from the fridge. With cheerful, brisk service, Sushiya gets a lot of things right, and on atmosphere alone should definitely be a strong contender for your next sushi fix.
