12 Best Sushi Restaurants in Toronto

If you’re looking for the best sushi restaurants in Toronto, you’ve come to the right place, my friend.

Sushi is one of my fave things to eat, and TBH I think I could eat it every single day.

Did y’all know there are different kinds of sushi and sushi experiences as well?

I ain’t no sushi expert (and I’ve never been to Japan… yet), but I’ll try my best to share what I’ve learned over the years.

Toronto has plenty of amazing sushi restaurants, whether you’re looking for classic maki rolls or torched and pressed sushi.

Here are some of the best sushi restaurants to eat at in Toronto, including affordable, all-you-can-eat, and upscale places!

If you’re looking for more great sushi, peep out my post on the best sushi restaurants in Markham, or the best sushi restaurants in Vancouver.

Best sushi restaurants in Toronto


Kibo Sushi House

Kibo Sushi is a fave of many Torontonians not only because of all their convenient locations, but because of their affordable yet delicious sushi rolls.

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 is the Salmon Lover combo, which is $14.95 and comes with 6 pieces of spicy salmon rolls, 3 pieces of salmon rolls, and 3 pieces of salmon sashimi.

They’ve got plenty of locations across Toronto, with some just being takeout spots and some having actual seating inside for dining in.

You can order for pick up through Ritual (one of my fave Toronto food apps), and you can get $10 off your first order using my link!

LOCATION: Various locations


Assembly Chef's Hall in Toronto

Tachi

Tachi is a casual stand-up sushi bar inside Assembly Chef’s Hall, run by the same restaurant group behind Sushi Masaki Saito (the first and only restaurant in Canada with a two Michelin-starred chef!)

Their dine-in omakase menu is $59.75 per person, and you get 11 pieces of sushi and 1 handroll in literally 30 minutes.

Their omakase menu changes up by the season, and features things like O-Toro (fatty tuna) and Ikura (salmon roe).

They only have 8 standing spots, which is typical for stand-up sushi shops in Japan!

LOCATION: 111 Richmond St. West, Toronto, ON


The Haam

Sushi or tacos? Why not have both?

The Haam serves up Japanese and Mexican fusion dishes at their cozy restaurant in Toronto.

They’ve got plenty of sashimi, nigiri, maki rolls, and hand rolls, as well as their own special rolls.

I love that even their special rolls are Mexican-inspired, like their Lion King Roll with jalapeno salsa and their Volcano Fiesta Roll with chipotle mayo and cilantro!

They’ve even got some oshi sushi options if you’re craving some pressed sushi and sushi boats if you’re looking to serve a big group.

If you’re in the mood for tacos, they’ve got a large selection of Mexican and Asian-inspired tacos on the menu like their Gochujang Barbacoa Taco and Carnitas Taco.

LOCATION: 342 Adelaide St. West, Toronto, ON


Planta Queen

Vegan sushi? Is that a thing? Why yes it is.

I once visited a vegan sushi restaurant in the GTA where the menu was literally just tofu with food colouring and I was screaming inside.

Planta Queen in the Entertainment District is actually quite inventive with their sushi rolls, with dishes like their Ahi Watermelon Nigiri and Unagi Eggplant.

They’ve also got other plant-based, Asian-inspired dishes on the menu like their General D’s Cauliflower and Pineapple Fried Rice.

Whether you’re vegan or not, you’ll definitely enjoy eating at Planta Queen.

They’re part of the Planta family of restaurants, with each location focusing on different cuisines (all of which are vegan).

All of their restaurants are v Instagrammable if you’re in search of Instagram-worthy restaurants to eat at.

LOCATION: 180 Queen St. West, Toronto, ON


KAKA All You Can Eat sushi restaurant in Toronto

KAKA All You Can Eat

In the mood for all-you-can-eat sushi?

Just because you’re eating AYCE, doesn’t mean you have to skimp out on quality.

KAKA serves up delicious and great quality sushi at their restaurant on Bay Street.

It’s $36.99 per person on weekdays and $37.99 per person on Fridays and weekends which is a little pricy, but so worth it.

They’ve got classic maki rolls like Black Dragon and Dynamite, as well as unique specialty rolls like their Honey Mustard Salmon Roll and Fried Chicken Roll.

They even have aburi nigiri and aburi oshi sushi, which you don’t usually find at AYCE sushi restaurants.

LOCATION: 655 Bay St. #5, Toronto, ON


Project Fish: Kitchen Restaurant in Richmond Hill, Ontario

PROJECT:FISH

Okay, so PROJECT:FISH is actually located in North York, but it’s still part of Toronto, okay?!

It’s one of my absolute fave sushi spots in Toronto, and they’ve got amazing aburi and oshi sushi.

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 Salmon Oshi is *chef’s kiss*.

They also have a Richmond Hill restaurant called Project Fish: Kitchen, which specializes more in contemporary Asian cuisine rather than seared sushi itself.

LOCATION: 16 Park Home Ave, Toronto, ON


Scallop sashimi at Miku Sushi in Vancouver, British Columbia

Miku Toronto

Miku is one of the most popular sushi restaurants in Toronto, and they’re actually originally from Vancouver.

They’re known for their aburi oshi sushi, but they’ve also got French and Italian-inspired cooked dishes like Corn Bisque and Kaisen Soba Peperoncino.

If you haven’t heard of aburi sushi, it’s flame-seared (or torched) sushi, and oshi sushi is a pressed sushi.

It literally tastes like heaven on earth, especially with the caramelization of their signature sauces.

Splurge with their Kaiseki (a traditional Japanese-style prix-fixe menu with small dishes) for $125 per person, which features 5 courses on handcrafted Japanese plateware.

The story behind the company is pretty cool: the owner, Seigo Nakamura, took after his father’s sushi restaurant in the 90’s, and he’s since opened up several restaurants in Vancouver and Toronto.

LOCATION: 10 Bay St. #105, Toronto, ON


JaBistro

JaBistro is part of the Kinka family of restaurants (they also operate Kinka Izakaya and Kinton Ramen).

Aburi oshi sushi is the specialty here, but they’ve also got some a la carte options (sashimi, nigiri, or temaki) and cooked dishes.

They’ve also got sashimi and lobster platters if you’re looking to serve a party!

If you’re looking to grab some drinks, they have a large selection of Japanese alcohol and cocktails, including a few mocktail options.

LOCATION: 222 Richmond St. West, Toronto, ON


Yuzu No Hana

Yuzu No Hana is another upscale sushi restaurant in Toronto.

Go for their 8-course Omakase ($120 per person), or order a la carte.

They’ve got plenty of sushi and sashimi options (such as O-Toro and Uni), maki rolls (including Spicy Salmon and Lobster), and cooked dishes (like Softshell Crab and Kobe Beef).

They’ve even got party platters at pretty decent prices, ranging from $55 to $95.

P.S. If you don’t know what omakase is, it’s a traditional Japanese tradition where the chef puts together their own selection of dishes featuring the freshest seasonal seafood.

It’s basically a set menu, and the chef makes each dish right in front of you!

LOCATION: 236 Adelaide St. West, Toronto, ON


Akira Back

Michelin Star Chef Akira Back blends Japanese and Korean cuisine at his restaurant in Toronto.

Some of their rolls have pretty amusing names, like their Hot Mess or Brother From Another Mother.

They’ve even got delish cooked dishes like their AB Wagyu Tacos and King Crab Fried Rice.

Fun fact: Chef Akira Back was once a professional snowboarder in Colorado, and now he operates his restaurants around the world!

You can find his Toronto restaurant inside the Bisha Hotel, one of my fave boutique hotels in Toronto.

LOCATION: 80 Blue Jays Way, Toronto, ON


Yasu

Yasu was Canada’s very first Japanese omakase sushi bar, and they’re definitely one of the best in Toronto.

They have extremely limited seating with just 12 seats, and the 2-hour omakase experience is $155 per person.

They even do takeout, and you can grab their Omakase Sushi Box for $95!

Chef Yasuhisa Ouchi opened Yasu back in 2014, and he now also has a location in Beverly Hills!

LOCATION: 81 Harbord St, Toronto, ON


Sushi Masaki Saito

Sushi Masaki Saito is the first and only restaurant in Canada with a two Michelin-starred chef, and it’s run by Chef Masaki Saito.

Their specialty and only offering is their omakase menu, which changes up seasonally and costs $600 per person *wipes sweat from forehead*.

It’s definitely a special occasion spot (unless you’re rollin’ in the dough).

They literally get booked up months in advance, so you’ll have to plan ahead for this one.

Their restaurant is housed in a historic Victorian building on Avenue Road, with an Old Edo-style interior.
