The Best Sushi in Toronto

The Best Sushi in Toronto

The Best Sushi in Toronto

All you can eat sushi is great in its own right -- there is the occasion for dynamite rolls and sushi pizza and there is the occasion for nigiri made at a sushi bar. This list includes places with omakase menus (leaving it all up to the chef to decide) to places that have a bit more variety and choice in an a la carte menu. What all these spots do have in common is the quality of ingredients and the skillful art of sushi making behind each dish they serve. When you’re looking for something a little more traditional, a little more upscale and definitely more expensive -- check out our favourite spots for sushi made by the masters. I mean, it does take a sushi apprentice 7 years just to master the rice.
