Tipping take out Sushi


I had a question, and I hope it's not too stupid. When getting take out sushi from various restaurants, are you expected to tip when paying your bill? If so, how much? I never tip when taking out from sub shops etc, but it being a restaurant, I'm a little confused on the etiquette. Thanks for any advice you may offer!

  1. I never do, I'll be interested to hear what people say about this.

    1. I generally don't tip on take out.

      1. hmmm, and I always tip on take-out.

        1. I never tip on takeout.

          1. i tip a buck or two on regular take out but with sushi, and i had never thought about this before, it might be nice to go drop a few bucks in the jar on top of the sushi counter just as you would if you had eaten at the bar. The only reason i say this is that it is sort of the convention to tip sushi chefs.
