Where to Find the Freshest Sushi in Philly

Here are the sushi restaurants in Philly with everything from at-home omakase to cream cheese–filled Philly rolls

View as Map

There’s some serious sushi talent in Philly, and while changing regulations surrounding the delta variant of the coronavirus mean grabbing a seat at the sushi bar isn’t exactly what it used to be, these chefs make some truly outstanding to-go options. Happily, maki, nigiri and chirashi are built to travel well. From simple roll combos to hands-on sushi making kits, these are the bets for sushi takeout, delivery, and indoor dining right now.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.

Order pickup or delivery on Toast, or make reservations for outdoor or indoor dining on OpenTable.
