Airport area sushi?

Nyleve Aug 16, 2006 02:30 PM

Have to make two airport pick-ups, three hours apart. Any suggestions for reasonable sushi in the airport vicinity to kill the time between pick-up numbers one and two?

Or, if not sushi exactly per se, something else wonderful and hound-ish close enough to make it feasible?

    Kumai is just a few minutes away and well worth it IMO

      I honestly don't think Ginko is worth the price. The food is fine, not spectacular. And for "fine", I'd rather pay less, like at Sushi-Ya. I help run a two thousand person event at the DoubleTree, and we never, never eat at Ginko anymore because we find the price just not worth it.

        ginko is in the doubletree and VERY pricey. http://www.ginkojapaneserestaurant.ca/

        i can't comment on the quality/service as i haven't been there.

        has anyone been? is it worth it?

          Of the three mentioned on the dixon/401 area, you'd want to stick to Ginko. It's definitely better than Sushi-Ya and Sunny Dragon, next to Kelsey's across the street. Ginko is more expensive, but their lunches are more reasonably priced. Quality and service was very good last time I was there (that was some time ago, though). I'd stay away from the Dragon place, its run-of-the-mill sushi for the masses. If anything, Sushi-Ya is marginally better. Both are Korean-run.

          I think Ginko is the one in Double Tree Hotel. On Dixon Rd. south side, just east of Hwy 27. It looks to be pretty expensive there.

          There's a couple of other sushi places by there too, I think one is Sushi-ya and the other I can't remember is right next to Kelsey's. They're all on Dixion, but I've never tried any of these places... and I'm a bit apprehensive to.

            Thank you! I'll find it.

              Kimura-san, onetime owner of Decker Ten in Mississauga, has a place out near Pearson. I'll check around for the name/location. When are you doing your taxi thing?

                Oh - no taxi. I'm the taxi. My husband and one son are arriving on a flight at 5-ish. Second son supposedly arriving on a flight at 9-ish. Looking for good eats in between.

                Thanks for looking into that.

                  That's what I meant by taxi service. Kimura's place is called Gingko, located in one of the hotels--not sure which one--sorry.

                I guess I was hoping for something right near the airport - like along the dreaded airport strip. We will have about 3 hours total - but you never know what you're dealing with in terms of delays and luggage etc.

                Thanks - I'll look on the map and see if either of those two are do-able.

                  Time frame? I like two in Mississauga: Kumai on Hurontario(Hwy 10)s. of Britannia; and Jimbay on Dixie. Both are Japanese 0/0 places and easily accessible from Eglinton west from the airport.
