Sushi - Leslieville

I need to order some sushi delivery/pick up in the Leslieville area.

Looking for recommendations.

Only great sushi places, I've gone through a string of medicore sushi lately and it's grossing me out.

    It used to be Sushi Marche for me, but I don't know how it's been lately. It was certainly on a decline the last few times I went. I would think it's still better than most in Leslieville.

      Same experience here, it has lost its glow for me.

        I liked Sushi Marche until they put out the LivingSocial "coupon". They won't accept the coupon on anything EXCEPT a la carte and omakase, but that wasn't in the fine print. They just lost their biggest fan.

          Completely agree with Food Tourist here. Sushi Marche's response to me was pretty much, "take it up with LivingSocial". So I did. LivingSocial were very helpful and refunded what I paid for the deal. I too am done with Sushi Marche.

          I used to go regularly, but I stopped going because the last few visits the fish had obviously been frozen and the texture was mushy.

          I like District Modern Japanese Bistro on Queen St. East.

            Prices seem to a bit on the higher end, is it worth it?

              IMO no. Ok sushi but nothing special.

            If you don't mind a 10-minute drive, Yumei (Yummy!) Sushi is at Queen & Wineva in the Beach, and their sushi is quite good. Lately, day and night, huge platters are being picked up for parties...last weekend I saw at least 12 go out the door

              I know technically not Leslieville but has anyone tires Sushi Bar (Queen & Broadview)?

                If you're going to drive to Queen and Broadview anyway, you should call Hiro Sushi to see if they will do take out. They're only at King and Jarvis.

                  This would be my choice of action! Hiro is just a few mins away from Queen and Broadview. I live at Queen and Broadview and since the decline at Sushi Marche, the terrible that is Sushi Bar, and the meh that is District, I've stopped eating sushi in my hood! Sad but true.

                  Yeah, Sushi Bar is one step about getting a can of Friskies and rolling it in some Uncle Ben's. It's pretty bad.

                  I too used to be a Marché regular but have found that it's slipped. I'd rather bomb over the Leaside bridge to Mikado or down the Gardiner to Sushi 930 for my takeout these days. Haven't tried District yet, though.

                    Friskies and Uncle Ben - hilarious, and very accurate!

                  +1 for District (I am not sure that "sushi" is actually part of the name..I think it's District Bistro or something like that..made it hard to find a website). I've always had lovely sushi here and really like the restaurant - it's worth going in for dinner. Yes, a bit on the more expensive side, but I do feel the quality is good (and it's not totally unreasonable)

                    The link to District`s website was included in my post.

                    I have been going to Sushi Marche since it first opened and have found the quality has decreased along with John's presence. We regularly spend $60 on sushi for two adults and two preschoolers, and we no longer get comped miso soup, and so now our bill tops $70. Seems a bit much for what we are now getting.

                    Have also tried District and Sushi Bar, the former being quite expensive and not so great and the former being just awful. So we are once again searching for good sushi in the east end . . .
