North York has plenty of awesome Asian restaurants, and they’ve got their fair share of amazing sushi spots as well!

I’ve become absolutely obsessed with aburi oshi sushi (torched pressed sushi) since I tried it for the first time in Vancouver many years ago, and you’ll find quite a few places in North York that offer it.

Here are some of the best sushi restaurants to eat at in North York, Ontario!

Best sushi restaurants in North York


Aburi Butterfish Dragon and Aburi Scallop Dragon Rolls from Kibo Sushi House in Richmond Hill, Ontario

Kibo Sushi

Kibo Sushi has locations all across Toronto, and they serve up affordable yet delicious sushi rolls for takeout.

They’ve got plenty of different sushi and sashimi combos or a la carte rolls, alongside cooked dishes like Gyoza and Chicken Karaage.

My go-to order is the Spicy Maki Trio combo, which comes with 6 pieces each of spicy California, spicy salmon, and spicy tuna rolls – they make some of the best spicy rolls out there!

I also love any of their aburi sushi rolls – they’re absolutely amaze.

Kibo’s North York restaurant is more takeout-style, though some of their restaurants around the GTA actually have seating!

LOCATION: 555 Wilson Avenue Unit 111E, Toronto, ON


Mix8 bento box from Torch Pressed Sushi in North York

Torch Pressed Sushi

Torch is one of my absolute fave takeout sushi shops because the food is delicious, and their bento boxes are actually pretty fairly-priced for such high-quality aburi oshi sushi!

They combine ancient Japanese techniques with modern flavours and ingredients for their incredible aburi oshi sushi, and it’s all truly heavenly.

I usually go for their Mix8, which comes with one piece each of their Torch sushi selection (a total of 8 pieces) alongside seaweed salad and edamame.

Or, if you’re a bit hungrier, go for their Tasting Box, which comes with the exact same items alongside a lobster hand roll and toro hand roll (Adam usually gets this one)!

I absolutely die for their Fantastic 4 (with butterfish, spicy sauce, fried shrimp, surimi, and tobiko) and Marinated Butterfish (with marinated butterfish, jalapẽno garlic sauce, seaweed paste, and chili ginger).

You can find Torch at the Upper East Food Club near Yonge & Finch, but they have a downtown location as well near Church & Wellesley!

They specifically specialize in takeout, but you can also dine in at either location.

LOCATION: 5317 Yonge St, North York, ON


Hana Don Japanese Cuisine & Bar

Hana Don serves up sushi at their gorgeous restaurant, though donburi is actually the specialty here.

Donburi is a Japanese dish where things are served atop of rice, so it’s kind of like sushi in a bowl!

They import their fresh and seasonal ingredients directly from Japan, and you’ll find dishes like their Aburi Don (with seared fish) and Hokkaido Don (with uni, ikura, and Hokkaido scallop).

You can find them at Fairview Mall, and they’ve also got a location in Markham!

LOCATION: 1800 Sheppard Ave E Unit 2020, North York, ON


Sushi Moto

If you’re craving some classic sushi, Sushi Moto is worth a visit.

They’ve got plenty of specialty rolls like their Moto Legend Roll (California maki with torched salmon, scallop, spicy mayo, red pepper oil) alongside classic rolls like Black Dragon and Dynamite!

You’ll also find a few cooked Korean dishes like Bulgogi and Kalbi.

You can find this family-owned restaurant right by Yonge & Sheppard!

LOCATION: 4901 Yonge St, North York, ON


PROJECT:FISH

You’ll find amazing aburi oshi sushi at PROJECT:FISH, and their Salmon Oshi is just *chef’s kiss*.

They’ve also got classic rolls like Dynamite Rolls and California Rolls, but the pressed sushi is what you’ll want to come here for!

The lunch specials here are also not bad, though you only get 2 pieces of aburi oshi sushi in the bento boxes they offer.

You’ll also find a good selection of Japanese sakes and spirits if you’re looking to enjoy them with your meal!

They recently reopened their Richmond Hill outpost as PF SUSHI BAR, which you can find at Yonge & Weldrick!

LOCATION: 16 Park Home Ave, Toronto, ON


Aburi oshi sushi from Aburi Tora sushi restaurant at Yorkdale Shopping Centre in North York, Ontario

Aburi TORA

Aburi TORA is a sister restaurant to the wildly popular sushi restaurants Miku and Minami, all of which are originally based out of Vancouver!

They’re all about their aburi oshi sushi, and they have a huge selection to choose from.

I absolutely love their Aburi Ebi Oshi (shrimp) and Aburi Saba Oshi (mackerel), and Adam especially loves the Aburi Crab Sushi!

They’ve got several different aburi oshi trios, which are perfect for if you’re looking to try a variety of different torch pressed sushi.

You order on an iPad, then it comes straight to you on a conveyer belt!

You can find them inside Yorkdale Mall, and you’ll actually have to take an elevator up to the restaurant. Fancy!

Kaiseki Yu-zen Hashimoto Restaurant

If you’re in the mood for a fancy sushi spot, visit this Michelin Star restaurant in North York.

Chef Masaki Hashimoto prepares his 8-course Kaiseki menu himself every night, showcasing the seasons while celebrating Japanese ingredients.

The lunch tasting menu is $250 per person and features 6 courses, while the dinner tasting menu is $350 per person and features 8 courses.

The stunning interior will literally transport you to Japan, and they’ve actually only got three tables inside the restaurant!

Chef Hashimoto trained in Kaiseki cuisine for 15 years in Japan, and he’s one of the few Kaiseki chefs to leave Japan and start a Kaiseki restaurant abroad!

LOCATION: 6 Garamond Ct, North York, ON
