Bay & Bloor / Yorkville

Sushi Inn

(2 reviews)

Sushi Inn is located on Cumberland Street between Bay and Avenue, right in the heart of Yorkville. The Yorkville district is traditionally known for higher end and expensive shopping and dining experiences, however Sushi Inn breaks from that tradition and offers sushi at competitive prices similar to those found at other sushi restaurants around Toronto. If arriving by subway, Sushi Inn is located almost right across from the Cumberland entrance to Bay Station. Please read our conversational review, below.

Comment ArrowSush Inn has an upstairs and downstairs, both accessible from outside so you get to choose (woo-hoo!). The confusion led me to choose the downstairs for whatever reason. Once I walked in, I was greeted right away and offered what I call the ‘VIP Section’… Ok, it was one of the two tables that sits elevated from the rest of the seating, and is along the windows looking out to Cumberland. Works for me.

Comment ArrowThis time it was my turn to be a little late. Got a call as I was walking on Cumberland letting me know that you were in the downstairs area of the restaurant. As I hung up, I saw you right through the window. Perfect timing. Place was pretty nice from the looks of it and sitting up on the elevated “VIP Section” was even better.

Comment ArrowI chose from a decent selection of beer, which was poured into a glass by our server. You went with tea. As for the good (ok, better) stuff, we started off with the sushi pizza (it’s now mandatory when we go for sushi!). I can’t complain – it was quite good. Next up was the spicy tuna maki…

Comment ArrowYeah the menu was easy to read with lots of pictures… always helps. I went with Tea but had to ask a second time (a different server) to get it as they only came out with water. It almost all came out at once which was nice but the use of separate plates for each dish made the table cramped a bit. The sushi pizza was good but wasn’t amazing. I am still holding out for the “best sushi pizza in Toronto” which might be an impossible quest.


fred
Comment ArrowTo be honest, except for once, I rarely remember the difference when it comes to sushi pizza! Soooo, the spicy tuna (with sauce on top), I thought, was great; we had the Dragon Roll which was good as well; and then a roll with crab. BBQ eel was another one. It was all tasty goodness!


brandon
Comment ArrowAh your right! The spicy tuna roll was done a bit different than other places. A big chunk of tuna wrapped with the spicy sauce on top. Very tasty, as was the other rolls we ordered. The BBQ eel one was their signature “Sushi Inn Roll”. Very nice. Come to think of it, there wasn’t one dish that disappointed.


fred
Comment ArrowYep… All around I give Sushi Inn high marks. Good food, great service, all in a decent setting. What’s with the gummy candy they give you with the bill, though? I’m giving Sushi Inn 9 shopping bags out of 10.


brandon
Comment ArrowIt’s hard to find too much wrong with our dinner. Makes for a “boring review” but it’s a 9 out of 10 for me too. Great place and a definite recommend. Will be back for sure.
