This sushi outlet is a hole in the wall along Adelaide Street behind Queens Plaza that has become a local institution. The handrolls are thick tasty and cheap. I always order the eel and the softshell crab. Now $3 (up from $2.20 a few years ago) but still excellent value.

Great hand rolls. Rice that has texture, super fresh ingredients and never greasy. There is always a line-up outside R Sushi at lunch time and there is a good reason for that. Don't let that put you off, the servers are friendly but efficient and you will be staring down your fresh tuna roll before you know it.

On the Adelaide St side of Queen's Plaza, LR Sushi's location makes it a very convenient place to acquire sushi. Although I am not normally a fan of sushi, I decided to try it out after hearing so many positive reviews of it. I understand the place can get very busy around lunchtime but, as I visited to get some... More

I have had some good and bad sushi in my time and I'd always seen a big line up for this particular sushi shop so I thought I'd try my luck. I got a cream cheese and smoked salmon roll (can't remember how much but I thought it was relatively cheap) and it is by far the best roll I've... More

Stopped in for the first time in a couple of years, and was pleased to find that it is as good as ever. Fabulous tasting sushi (mostly hosomaki) with a good selection of traditional as well as western-style fillings. If you can avoid the lunch rush you can take your time over the selections, otherwise expect to feel a bit... More

My lunch time sushi fix of choice. Authentic & westernised sushi rolls from $2.50 each. Free pickled ginger sachets & mayonaise upon request as well as help yourself soy sauce. Quick, pleasant service & even though a line forms at lunchtimes it usually moves quickly. Never disappointed in over 5 years of patronage.

Still the best hand-roll fast sushi in Brisbane, in my opinion. I've had heaps of disappointing temaki - dried out temaki, too much rice temaki, deceptively small temaki, bland temaki. LR sushi has always been my sushi stop of choice; they're pretty cheap (though my uni student wallet has noticed they've increased their prices by around ~20c recently) and give... More

I visited the Adelaide St (149) store. The place is popular enough that you have to queue up to buy sushi. At the time of this review, the price range is $2 - $3 per roll. 1) A unique store with heaps of funky favours like "Spider" (deep-fried soft shell crab with a hint of pepper) and "Crispy chicken, cream...

LR Sushi has a store at Queens Plaza and another one at 300 Queen St (HSBC building). Both stores make fantastic sushi that is always fresh and enjoyable. Selection of rolls is one of the best in Brisbane and staff work the queue very fast. Please note that 300Queen st store is 10% cheaper and has a nice dining area... More
