In the Philly ‘burbs, Nagomi offers perfect takeout, with a dinner special that will fill you up for dinner and lunch the next day. For under $20, you can get three delicious fish rolls — the yellowtail and jalapeno and spicy crunch tuna roll are highlights — and a side of the requisite miso soup. Live in the Northwest part of the city? Despite being located in Glenside, Nagomi is usually within delivery range. Orders for delivery must be made on Grubhub.

Yanako Restaurant

Copy Link

Manayunk’s go-to sushi BYO is satisfying the neighborhood’s cravings for tuna tataki, East Falls rolls, and customizable sushi dinners. Yanako has cut out the middleman (and inflated delivery fees) and is taking orders for delivery and pickup via their website.

Izakaya By Yanaga

Copy Link

The latest edition to Philly’s sushi scene is Izakaya by Yanaga, run by Kevin Yanaga, who formerly worked at Morimoto and Zama. There are more dishes than just sushi — ramen, gyoza, and bao, for example — but the move is the sashimi bar and one of Izakaya’s excellent cocktails. Reservations can be made online.

Nunu’s menu ranges from relatively tame takes on familiar rolls — think a California roll featuring blue crab — and an only-in-Philly chirashi hoagie i.e. a panko crusted mega maki stuffed with avocado, yellowtail, salmon, and big eye salmon topped off with tobiko and seaweed salad. Order pickup or delivery on Toast, or make reservations for outdoor or indoor dining on Resy.

The intimate, peaceful space that houses Hiroki at the corner of Master and Lee is one that will immediately lower your heart rate. Calming effect aside, chef Hiroki Fujiyama’s omakase menu — for $155 a person — is a not-to-miss experience, with sushi rolls inspired by Fujiyama’s hometown of Kyoto. There’s also a sake pairing. Reservations are required and can be made at Hiroki’s website.

Kaiseki

Copy Link

After working in the kitchens at Morimoto and Hiroki, Andy Bernard launched his sushi delivery service with co-founder Crystal Gurin in the middle of the pandemic shutdown, and they’re still taking pickup and delivery orders Wednesday through Sunday. The chirashi, with fish, roe, vegetables, and seasoned rice, is a good place to start.

Doma Sushi

Copy Link

This cozy Fairmount favorite with a long menu of Japanese and Korean dishes never disappoints. Try the bibimbap roll; the smoked salmon, cream cheese, and avocado roll; or stick to the classics. Reservations for indoor and outdoor dining, as well as pickup and delivery orders, can be made on Doma’s website. FYI: It’s BYOB.

Tuna Bar

Copy Link

Chef Kenneth Sze, who learned the sushi biz at his family's Yokahama in Maple Shade, brought his skills to Old City with Tuna Bar. Along with sushi, gyoza, and a few noodle and rice dishes, the restaurant serves a wonton soup based off Sze's grandmother's recipe.

Fuji Mountain

The full bar and amazing selection of sakes are part of the draw at Fuji Mountain, but the menu options for dinner and lunch offer plenty of options for those who don’t only want sushi. Order pickup or delivery online, or make reservations at Fuji Mountain’s website.

Vic Sushi Bar

Copy Link

Vic ranks up there as a perennial favorite for getting the most bang for your buck. The menu is larger than might be expected given the small space but those who prefer to keep it simple should go with Vic’s combo platters and three-roll deals. Call to order pickup or delivery within 10 blocks of Rittenhouse Square. Walk in or call for reservations.

With a prime Rittenhouse Square location, chef Hiroyuki "Zama" Tanaka's home base is a stylish staple for classic sushi as well as more inventive dishes and special rolls — including cheesesteak-inspired maki. Zama has a number of platters built for sharing, like an oversized chirashi and a 90-piece sushi combo. Call to order pickup or get delivery on Caviar. Reservations can be made on OpenTable.

Double Knot

Copy Link

The menu at Michael Schulson’s underground Double Knot features robatayaki, chicken katsu, tataki, and, of course, sushi. Here, the pearly rice is warmed, then topped with slices of shimmering fish and enhanced with a spritz of lemon, soy, or ponzu. Reservations are available on Resy.

Morimoto

Copy Link

There's a lot to choose from besides sushi at Starr Restaurants’ long-running Morimoto, including hot entrees and standout desserts, but if ever there was a time to go the omakase route, this is it. A la carte sushi are available as well. Reservation can be made online.

This Washington Square West BYOB serves creative rolls, nigiri, and sashimi, colorful chirashi, and tuna over crispy rice cakes. Call for pickup or order delivery from GrubHub. Reservations can be made online.

Bleu Sushi

Bleu Sushi made news when owner Hendra Yong set up a robotic arm to hand orders over to customers in a contactless way during the pandemic. Most of the rolls here are named for local places or colleges, like the crispy Temple Roll made with spicy yellowtail topped with torched white tuna.

Chef Xiang Yu “Sam” Lin’s Sakana is worth coming to for the fresh sushi and sashimi. Sakana is BYOB and reservations for two different omakase tastings — one small and one large — can be made on Resy.

Royal Sushi & Izakaya

James Beard award-nominated chef Jesse Ito's Queen Village destination is a two-in-one deal.
