Rare food at St. Raw


  • Type of food: Asian fusion/Japanese Outdoor seating and takeaway

  • Suitable for: Couples, families, small groups

  • Price range: Middle/high

St. Raw is a super-popular sushi and Asian fusion restaurant in Fredrikstad. The eatery is known for serving splendidly fresh fish and delicious flavour-combinations. The room is small and intimate, so not ideal for bringing an entire department from work to. The good news is that they have takeaway, so you can instead always order food for when you’re working overtime!
