The Best Sushi Takeout in Toronto

Posted by Darren "DKLo" Susilo / September 11, 2015

sushi torontoThe best sushi takeout in Toronto are places that know how to prepare and package raw fish for take home consumption. While many of these restaurants will happily serve you on-premises, some are so tiny that it's clear having customers dine-in was never their intention.

Here are the best restaurants for sushi takeout in Toronto.

Japango

Japango

This popular spot near City Hall does a brisk lunch and dinner business for fresh fish and well-made Japanese fare. But the small space also is a popular takeout option offering good value sushi, sashimi and maki party platters in a range of sizes. More »

Sushi Nomi

Sushi Nomi

This Roncesvalles favourite sells a large assortment of fresh sushi, many already pre-packaged in those clear boxes that everyone loves. Make sure you try the hot maki set, a delectable collection of spicy tuna, salmon, and surimi crab meat. More »

Sushi Mugen

Sushi Mugen

Formerly known as Sushi Marche, this Leslieville takeout spot is owned by John Lee who studied under Iron Chef Morimoto. High quality sushi, sashimi and maki options are available for lunch and dinner with prices to match. They also do a great job with custom party trays. More »

Taro's Fish

Taro's Fish

This North York fish store in a strip mall near the Bessarion subway stop also happens to sell high quality sushi and sashimi. Some comes pre-wrapped in display cases but it's best to order off the menu. Party trays, nigiri, maki, sushi and sashimi sets are all available but be sure to get your order in by their half past seven cutoff time. More »

Sushi Bong

Sushi Bong

The name may conjure up images of questionable activities so it's good to know that consuming copious amounts of Sushi Bong's popular Dynamite Rolls is perfectly legal. Practically a household name for residents in the culinary corridor known as Northtown Way, Sushi Bong's business is almost 100% takeout. More »

Aoyama Sushi

Aoyama Sushi

This Japanese-run and operated restaurant on Victoria Park near Sheppard serves sushi legit enough for purists. The thing to get here is the assorted sushi, sashimi or chirashi but they also do plenty of rolls and grilled fare including a really good beef tataki. More »

Kokoro Sushi

Kokoro Sushi

Kokoro means "heart" in Japanese, and there are certainly more than a few people down by Toronto's waterfront who have fallen in love with getting takeout sushi from this restaurant. Hearty combos can be had here for around $11 and usually include around 16 or more pieces of excellent sushi. This is close to the ACC and a good option to get your sushi fix before the game. More »

Nari Sushi

Nari Sushi

This King East takeout spot is popular among George Brown students for its ready to eat sushi offerings. While they do take custom orders here, most people just pick something from the selection of pre-made sushi and maki sets (discounted by 25% at the end of the business day). More »

Iruka Sushi on Queensquay W. has the best sushi in Toronto. Rolls here are rolls i've never tried anywhere else. Them having Asahi Black is the cherry on top.

Japango is amazing, however a bit on the pricey side; I'd probably prefer to just dine in there. Another spot that's great for sit in or take out is Oyshi, it's by Queens Quey and Yonge St.

All great spots. I wished they served this amano food's soy sauce instead of kikkoman though. LAN is a great spot, but D&Y at Keele and Dundas has an awesome salmon melt roll....so good!

Taro's Fish for the win. Worth the drive to North York.

Kokoro? Really? Do yourself a favour if you're by the waterfront and get takeout from Oyshi instead. Significantly better sushi for roughly the same price.

I don't think Mandarin does take-out as it's AYCE.

I really like Sushi Bond. Small place with 5 2-persons tables. Always see a line in there for people picking up. Always fast too.

@Risky

I live in the neighbourhood and Kokoro is MUCH cheaper than Oyshi and I personally think it's better. I've tried Oyshi twice and it was almost double the price and wasn't as fresh.

Blowfish on King makes the most delicious sushi that I've ever eaten anywhere in the world. While not the cheap sushi you'd take out on a regular Wednesday night, it's worth every penny! If you're a sushi lover and live in or around Toronto, you're not going to want to miss this place.

Best sushi place for value and quality is, by far, Simon Sushi on College. It's my go to.

Nari Sushi - sure it's fresh, but falls apart when you pick it up or add any soy sauce. IMO - Fusion on Front has much better quality and better prices.

My two faves for cheap, reliable, good sushi:

1. Sushi Shop (several locations in the Path) - honestly the best cheap sushi I've had (and I have sushi at least 3x/week). They have pre-made but will make you anything to order. Try their spicy rolls or any of their Hako.

2. Urawa on Adelaide & Duncan. Consistently great sushi (they deliver as well) -- awesome spicy roll combo you get like 4 rolls for $14 bucks, plus if you order more than $25 they throw in a free Red Dragon roll to your order. Try their spicy scallop roll.

3. Raww in Liberty Village--awesome sushi pizza, great lunch & dinner combos--order their Chef specialty rolls - they are unique and delicious!

Trust me on this folks and give either one a try--you'll never order anywhere else again!

-Sincerely, your resident Sushi Expert
