While Zen, Aoyama, and Cafe Michi are all in my neck of the woods and offer take-away, they are quite pricey. Here are my top fav places to go for good quality/ well priced takeaway platters of sushi, sashimi, maki, and other goodies.
(Scarborough and Markham area)
3517 Kennedy Road, Toronto
Tel: (416) 609-2442
Great, fresh fish- my favourite place in this area. Nichiban has been around for over two decades. The Japanese owner is friendly, so I go there often. I usually order the $30 sushi/sashimi combo which i can polish off by myself.haha
(take away only)
Sapporo Ichiban Sushi
250 Alton Towers Circ, Unit B 6/7
Again, good fresh fish. Owner gives you free handrolls when you spend over $20 on orders. (usually it is pieces of mushroom, mayo and crispy tempura bits)
The place has also been around 20+ years. Bonus: they're open till midnight mon-sat
(you can dine-in as well )
Ni Ji Sushi
1095 Ellesmere Road, Scarborough, ON M1P 2W9
A popular place right off of Midland RT stop. Although, I find their platters to be the priciest out of all these recs.
(you can dine in as well)
(Pharmacy Ave. & Ellesmere Rd.)
80 Ellesmere Rd., Scarborough, Ontario
Tel: (416) 447-3250
Entertaining owner.. likes to play classical music in his sushi place. Gives you a free handroll while you wait for your order. Last time it was warm salmon with terriyaki sauce.
(small area to dine in)
Hokkai Ya (Ninja as acutally stated in their take-away menu) Sushi
395 Bamburgh Circle, Scarborough, ON M1W 3Y1
Medium Sashimi platter is $30 only with 45 some odd pieces.. a good value. Menu selection is not as large as the other places mentioned.
(1 very small table to dine at. or 3 stools are available by the sushi bar. )
Tora Sushi (in J-Town)
3160 Steeles Ave. E., Unit 6-11, Markham(north side of Asian Kitchen)
Haven't eaten here yet, but heard that they offer good quality fish... don't know about the pricing though.
