Sushi Anaba The Best Omakase in Scandinavia

With only eight counter seats, Sushi Anaba is one of the hardest-to-snag reservations in Copenhagen. Chef Mads Battefeld trained in Tokyo before opening his own sushi restaurant in Nordhavn. The omakase primarily features sustainable seafood from Denmark and Norway – not only is it the best sushi we’ve had in Scandinavia, it’s the best omakase we’ve had in our entire life. Natural wine and sake are both available.
