This is a nice 'sushi inspired' restaurant, I say 'sushi inspired' as, in the past a Japanese once told me that only the Japanese know how to do sushi properly.
Stick'n'sushi is a sushi restaurant chain, originating in Copenhagen, Denmark, 24 years ago. The Oxford restaurant is situated on the top floor terrace, on the new West Gate shopping complex, with panoramic views over the historic spires of Oxford. However, on the day we visited, the spring weather of a light drizzle made the indoor seating welcome.

The staff direct you to a table where you are presented with a menu and you guided, discreetly and knowledgably, through the whole sushi experience.

On the whole a delightful and tasty break from the shopping experience.

This is an most attractive restaurant - fashionably Japanese minimalist - on the top floor of the new Westgate Shopping Centre in Oxford.
There is a good feeling and ambiance right from entering the joint - created both by the decor and the young friendly international front of the house service team.
The choice and variety on the menu is stupendous right from the cocktails (ranging from £9-£11 a crack) through the Sakis, the wines and most particularly the enormous visual food à la carte menu.
I have listed below some of the dishes we had which we thoroughly enjoyed.
The staff were charming and helpful and polite and keen to explain dishes. They also took note (at the time of my booking) that it was my wife's birthday and greeted her with a Happy Birthday on our arrival... plus a sweet hand-sketched birthday card on our table... plus a little birthday cake served at the end of the meal. Nice personal touches. My only slight complaint would be the slow speed of the service - especially at the end of the evening trying to get hold of a waiter to prepare our bill.
We had a super night out with 3 courses, 2 glasses of wine, 2 carafes of warm Saki for £120 - including the "optional and discretionary service charge of 10%".
Not cheap but worth it all...

If you want sushi, there are other places in Oxford (Koto for good, Edamame for bad). At Sticks 'n Sushi the food is certainly above average, however the service is terrible. Our waiter was disinterested to the point where he came after 20 minutes and asked if we'd ordered. Yes, we ordered ages ago and from you! The sushi is nice but in small to half-size portions; normally you'd get nigiri in pairs here they're served individually. It's expensive, the location's kind of horrible on a big concrete building but food wise it's fair. 3/5 if they hired better staff.

Very easy to choose what you want and enjoy a calming rather dark atmosphere. A break from the surrounding bustle of the shopping centre.

Atmosphere, amazing & the food was just gorgeous- kinda new to sushi but Christian our waiter was so helpful and was able to advise what to eat & drink - we had the cocktails he suggested & was amazing! Given lots of time to order, and decide - great place, we’ll definitely come again ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
