The best sushi delivery spots in Toronto's east end

We’ve all been there: Your sushi order arrives at the table and you breathe a sigh of disappointment at the barely visible slice of tuna poking through a ball of rice, or meagre slice of over-priced salmon sashimi. Well, not at these premiere east-end spots. From mom-and-pop shops to modern bistros, here are our top picks for delivery sushi on the east side.

Miyaki Sushi

222 The Esplanade, Toronto, ON M5A 4M8

Treat you and your honey to a night in with the Lovers Boat sushi combo from this compact sushi spot, a go-to for the Esplanade and Distillery District crowd. The romantic feast includes sashimi, nigiri and a few delicately prepped maki rolls, for a dinner that’s as light as it is gourmet. Dozens of other curated combinations dominate the menu, with standard and specialty maki rolls and sushi pizzas on offer as well. Watch the clock on Sunday delivery! Although open until 10pm weeknights and 9pm on Saturdays, it closes up shop at 8pm on Sunday evenings.

Fuzen Japanese Fusion Cuisine

132 Front St E, Toronto, ON M5A 1E2

The Lower Jarvis crew has long loved this roomy, modern sushi spot, accented by wood floors, hanging Japanese lanterns, and a wraparound sushi bar, ideal for a romantic sushi date or a casual dine-in at a spot with great décor and good vibes. Feeling a cozy sushi dinner in? With always-excellent presentation, hefty maki rolls, and seriously next-level fresh sashimi, FuZen is also a go-to for delivery on the east side.

Kawa Sushi

451 Church St, Toronto, ON M4Y 2C5

The Church Street crowd flocks to this sushi bistro, complete with an elegant and colourful interior. If you’re looking for an aesthetic option for dine-in sushi in the Village (or delivery!), this is your spot. Menu highlights include the deluxe spicy salmon roll (which nixes the rice in favour of a thick wrapping of salmon), the Moscow roll (raw fish and cream cheese, deep fried), and the Black Pearl (tempura snapper – that’s all you need to know). All the go-to favourites (including eggplant and mushroom sushi pizzas for veggie diners), round out the selections.

Kibo Sushi House

533 Parliament St, Toronto, ON M4X 1P3

This Leslieville spot has a distinctly upscale feel, with lesser-seen menu items like sake sangria, crispy karaage, and a drool-inducing seared tataki salad. Not only does it feature a killer (and hefty!) lunch special featuring teriyaki, tempura, sushi and sashimi mix-and-match combos, it also offers delivery, making it an ideal spot for east-enders looking for a low-stress, high-style dinner party option.

Qi Sushi

358 Gerrard St E, ON M5A 2G7

This beloved spot at Gerrard and Jarvis dazzles with jam-packed sushi platters and maki rolls that are hefty in diameter and in taste, packed with fresh fish and avocado and topped with tangy house-made sauces. Even the single-order nigiri boasts an above average slice of sashimi. While it delivers to surrounding hoods, it’s also a cozy spot for a dine-in sushi dinner.

Yumei Sushi

2116 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4E 1E2

This College and Carleton spot isn’t your average sushi restaurant. If you’re craving the raw fish delicacy, then yes, have ‘atter (with extensive sushi and sashimi menus). But it also hosts a range of hot food items, from soba and udon noodle dishes and gourmet soups and appies. The kimchi pancake is a must-try, as is the truly killer bento box (which includes maki, nigiri, sashimi, teriyaki AND tempura). Add delivery and you’ve got your perfect go-to place for your sushi fix.

Sushi Bar

348 Broadview Ave, Toronto, ON M4M 2G9

With exposed brick walls and sexy low-lit Japanese lanterns, this sleek Riverdale sushi resto hosts the best of romantic-meets-casual feels. Get your fave maki rolls or some unique specialty options for takeout or delivery, or tuck in at the good vibes spot. Prices in the mid-range mean you can happily sip on some warm or cold sake, or opt for an artfully prepared platter for an at-home sushi feast.

Sushi Mugen

1105 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4M 1K7

A neighbourhood favourite for sushi-craving Leslieville-ites, Sushi Marche has all the basic qualities for a strong sushi game: fresh, affordable, and the opposite of skimpy. This is a spot where your quintessential spicy tuna will dazzle just as much as the specialty rolls. Wait times for delivery can get up there, so be sure to give you (and your hungry belly) plenty of time. Or, pop in for takeout and have a quick look through the market area, stocked with specialty Asian grocery items.

Our talented brewmasters are among the most beloved makers in the city, having carved out Toronto’s status as a destination for award-winning craft beer. Although the culture is home-grown and goes way back, post 2011, a slew of new spots have popped up across the city. Here are the stories behind both our famed microbreweries and innovative newcomers on the scene. [Photo credit: Celine Kim]
From second-storey terraces to canopy-covered courtyards, 2016 has been a good year for Toronto’s patio game. We’ve got the goods on the brand-new brewery on Roncesvalles and the Lakeshore’s most recent party-worthy spot. East to west, these resto-bar newcomers have created inspired outdoor spaces so you can start patio season off right. [Image credit: Pavone]
