The Best AYCE Sushi in Toronto
The best AYCE (all you can eat) sushi restaurants in Toronto are all about walking that fine line between quantity and quality. Let's be honest: nobody goes to AYCE sushi places to slowly savour the delicate balance of flavours that the sushi chef carefully prepares. Rather, it's really more about stuffing our collective gullets with as much California Rolls as is legally (and physically) possible.
Here is the list of the best all you can eat sushi restaurants in Toronto.
A longtime favourite of York Region residents, Yang's serves up interesting items such as salmon head and eel pancake. The sushi is fresh, the service is quick (though rather curt at times), and who doesn't want to eat sushi while having random Chinese TV shows playing in the background? Expect long lineups on weekends and most mealtimes. Lunch prices are $15.99 (including weekends) and dinners start at $23.99. More »
If you want your AYCE experience to be a bit more upscale then Matsuda is the ticket. With two locations (one in Scarborough, the other in North York), there's multiple options for scarfing down super-fresh sashimi and deliciously refreshing Mango Rolls. Service is fast, which is good considering how busy the place gets. Lunch prices start at a very reasonable $13.99 and dinners start at $23.99. More »
Fushimi is a modern sushi restaurant in the Village. I've found that my sushi here is often very well-presented, something which I don't expect to find in an AYCE establishment. Try the Black Dragon Roll and the fried eggplant roll. Lunch prices start at $14.99 and dinners start at $22.99. More »
A legend (oh dear) among many, this modern and spacious North York establishment provides over 160 items as part of their AYCE menu. The velvety smooth salmon rose is a must-try as is the rather interestingly named My Angel Roll. Lunch prices start at $15.95, while dinners start at a rather steep $24.95. More »
One in a chain of three separate locations, Maki Sushi (also known as Maki Sushi III - sounds like something Liam Neeson should be in) is a go-to place for many to get their AYCE fix. The prices here are a bit on the higher side, with lunches starting at $14.99 and dinners at $22.99, but you do get access to a good choice of fresh teppanyaki options. More »
This place is an institution for those who know and love AYCE in downtown Toronto. It's not necessarily the prettiest, most upscale, or even most organized restaurant, but the steady stream of patrons paint a pretty accurate picture of how much people love this spot. Try the crowd favourite Firehouse Roll. Lunches start at $13.99 and dinners start at $21.99. More »
Rest assured, California Roll serves much more than just its namesake. Featuring a large menu with lunchtime prices starting at $12.99 and dinners at $20.99, this place is clearly one of the cheapest options when it comes to AYCE. They don't skimp on quality, as one bite of their saucy Volcano Roll with testify. Wash it all off with an order of their deep fried ice cream. More »
Named after a favourite Canadian pastime and wildly popular with the locals, Hockey Sushi (now with five locations!) provides a smorgasbord of fresh sushi and sashimi with service as fast as Phil Kessel's snapshot. You can get a 10% discount coupon from their website, but they do add an automatic 10% service charge to your meals. Lunchtime prices start at $13.99 while dinners start at $21.99. More »
My favourite part about Tekka Sushi is that you get a choice of a "Gold" menu (which includes sashimi for $19.99) and a "Silver" one (no sashimi and priced at $14.99). Make sure you try their Sun Roll, a wonderful flavour-texture combination of sweet and crispy, along with their signature Tekka Roll. The prices for lunch are the same as for dinner, something which almost blew my mind when I first went there. More »
