You couldn't pay me enough to stay at Sushi Inn


Sushi Inn @ Yorkville
120 Cumberland Street
Toronto, ON 

Date Visited: August 23, 2013

Pictured above is a takeout B2 Party Tray ($53.00 - 16 Nigiri sushi, 52 Maki sushi). 

Not sure why this place is busy as it is or why it is rated so well. 

When it came to freshness, all the sushi pieces were sub-par. The fish was fishy and dull in colour - not very appetizing. One would think that a higher volume place wouldn't have this problem. What grade of fish are they getting in?  The fish here is even worse than some all-you-can-eat sushi establishments. 

Further, this party tray didn't have any value. Too many maki pieces were tiny and uninspired.  Come on, 12 cucumber maki???  It's not a maki that you crave when you want sushi, at least for me.  The salmon and tuna maki only offered salmon and tuna respectively and so they weren't very exciting on the palate. These pieces of maki were basically maki that you would get as part of a bento box meal and not a party tray. 

One word: gross.
