About St Pierre's

Devoted to sushi since 1993

In 1993 St Pierre's formed an alliance with one of Japans largest food exporters, The Tokyo Mutual Trading Company. They had been the pioneers of Japanese food in the USA.

They provided superior cooking condiments and expertise to St Pierre's. From that time St Pierre's started to import all its own products used for making sushi from Japan, to make the most delicious sushi possible.

 

“To improve the quality of life of people through new exciting tasty
and healthy foods” …Its why we do what we do!!

The History

The Products

Only the best ingredients are used to make sushi at St Pierre's Sushi Stores. Fresh salmon arrives daily from the Marlborough Sounds and is skinned and boned on premises. The rice is freshly cooked California short grain rice. The fresh chicken for Teriyaki Chicken arrives daily and is marinated and cooked fresh every day. All the cucumbers, avocados and other vegetables are cut daily for super freshness. 

If a sushi flavour has sold out we encourage customers to ask our sushi chefs to make up a fresh sushi roll! And special requests are always welcome.

 

The Name

St Pierre's is the French name for the famous New Zealand fish John Dory. The name also translates to St Peter, who was the Patron Saint of Fisherman.
