The Best AYCE Sushi in Toronto

The best AYCE sushi in Toronto showcases the subtly changing landscape of the city's raw fish scene. Normally much-maligned for its quantity over quality, there has been a noticeable shift of the genre in recent years toward a more refined, upscale environment, often outfitted with iPads to make ordering a breeze.

Here are the best AYCE sushi restaurants in Toronto.


KaKa All You Can Eat

KaKa All You Can Eat

KaKa sets itself apart by providing a premium and upscale AYCE sushi experience. Dinners start at $28.99, though lunch is a la carte only. Reservations, though sometimes tricky, are a must because this place gets busy.

Yang's Kitchen

Before there was KaKa, this was the longtime staple for York Region sushi lovers. While not as snazzy as its newer counterpart, they still have a large following and serve up fresh sushi amongst a backdrop of random Chinese TV shows. Magical. Lunch prices start at $17.99 and dinners start at $26.99.


New Generation Sushi & Teppanyaki

New Generation Sushi & Teppanyaki

The Vaughan location is the newest addition to the New Generation family and its modern, two-storey design is certainly nice. The salmon rose and herring sashimi here are among the standouts. Lunch and dinner prices are the same, starting at $25.99 for sushi only and at $31.99 for a sushi and teppanyaki option.

YellowTail

YellowTail

This Markham destination might be hidden in a strip mall better known for its T&T, but the sashimi quality here is fantastic, though the rice-to-content ratio on their maki can sometimes be a bit on the high side. Lunches start at $17.99 and dinners start at $26.99 on weekdays.


Fushimi AYCE (Church St.)

Fushimi AYCE (Church St.)

A modern sushi joint in the Village, this restaurant serves up AYCE fare that's both aesthetically pleasing and deliciously fresh. My two long-time favourites here remain the Black Dragon Roll and the slightly-sweet eggplant roll. Lunch prices start at $14.99 and dinners start at $22.99.


Sushi Legend

Sushi Legend

With locations in Scarborough and North York, Sushi Legend sure offers up some choice. You really can't go wrong here. Both locations serve up over 168 dishes (like the delightfully named My Angel Roll) and the sushi quality here is as consistent as they come. Lunch prices start at $18.95 and dinners start at $27.95.

Maki Sushi III (Laird)

Maki Sushi III (Laird)

It's a very nondescript name, but Maki Sushi gets the job done. This Leaside favourite serves up very reasonably-priced AYCE options (lunches start at $15.99 and dinners at $23.99) in a casual, family-friendly setting. Make sure to try the sushi pizza and the crab legs.


Matsuda Japanese Cuisine

Matsuda Japanese Cuisine

One of the pioneers of the upscale AYCE sushi experience, Matsuda endures with its $15.99 lunch and $26.99 AYCE dinners. The Mango Roses Maki here is one the must-try house specialties and make sure to leave room for the Crazy Spicy California Roll.

Sushi One

Sushi One

A humble little spot near Yonge and Sheppard, Sushi One impresses with its large selection of unique dishes. From interesting rolls to its large selection of Korean dishes, there’s plenty to like here. Note that AYCE lunch, at $18.99, is only available on weekends. Dinner AYCE starts at $27.99.
