Best sushi downtown, take-out/delivery

I know there are thousands of threads on sushi. I'm not looking for the world's greatest though. I live in the Yonge/College area and am looking for suggestions on where to get good takeout/delivery in the area (I will walk a bit, so no worries). We normally go to Kokyo, but they are doing renovations and are closed (dammit!).

Any places will fairly good sushi/best sushi you can get in the general vicinity? Thanx guys. Gotta grab din dins for 9:30 and am looking for help!

  1. I work at Yonge and College and we all swear by Daily Sushi. On Carlton just east of Yonge beside the Carlton theatre. I don't know if they deliver.

    1. i move to second Daily Sushi, and i think that Daio across the street from there is also fairly delicious. Daily Sushi is less expensive and i am fairly certain it does deliver, but i am not sure about Daio. you can get takeaway from both places i think.

        oh, and Tokyo Sushi on St Joseph, under the grey-and-pink condominium building... it has excellent sushi available for takeaway.

      2. You have a few options. The aforementioned Daily Sushi does delivery. There is also Sushi Sky on the west side of Yonge just north of College. They have take-out, delivery, very reasonable prices, and are of reasonable quality. Daio on the south side of Carlton about a half block east of Yonge doesn't deliver, but they do terrific take-out both as fixed dinners and platters of sushi, or maki, or sashimi.

        Of these 3, Daio blows the other two away. It is amongst the most pleasant sushi experiences I've had in Toronto and I've had many. It is also the most consistent in terms of quality and service. I very highly recommend it.

        Daio Japanese Restaurant
        45 Carlton St, Toronto, ON M5B2H9, CA

        Daily Sushi Japanese Restaurant
        20 Carlton, Toronto, ON M5B1K5, CA

        Sushi Sky Japanese Restaurant
        478 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M4Y1X5, CA

        1. Without a doubt Tokyo Sushi on St. Joseph St. is the best in the area. There is a small eat in area and they have good take out service and I belive they do deliver. 33 St. Joseph St. 416-513-0002.

          Japango on Elizabeth St. just south of Dundas is pretty good too.

          I would stay away from Sushi Sky.

            Oh yes, Tokyo Sushi. Not exactly walking distance. Have you tried Daio, ach?

            1. re: Googs

              Haven't tried Daio. The next time I am going to The Carlton Theatre I'll try it.
              But, it is definitely worth the extra couple blocks walk to Tokyo Sushi for their super fresh sashimi and inventive rolls.

            2. re: ach

              Sushi Sky didn't seem that bad at all for the price point, maybe I missed something. I've had much worse and paid more.

            3. Sushi Plaza on the west side of Church just north of Gerrard has Sushi take out - I don't know if they do delivery.
