Top 5 Japanese Sushi Take-Out in Mississauga
If you're in the mood for takeout sushi, Mississauga has some great spots. Like everything worth having, some of these gems are a little hard to find. They're hidden in inconspicuous plazas, so you have to keep an eye out for them when you're in the mood for some quick spicy salmon hand rolls.
Fortunately, we're here to let you in on some well-kept sushi secrets! Here are the top five sushi takeout spots in Mississauga.
5 - Dai Ichi Sushi
If you want quality and don't mind paying for it, this place is for you. An incredible restaurant located on the southwest side of Mississauga that you can’t even see from the street is Dai Ichi Sushi. I ordered the sushi/sashimi bento box, and as you can see in the picture, the fish was plentiful. The sushi was perfect, the rice was tightly packed and the sashimi was fresh. This place is actually very well priced compared to other restos in the same dining category and it's perfect for a date due to the closed-off dining booths.
4 - Kura Sushi
Kura Sushi is hidden in an industrial plaza on Britannia Road east of Hurontario. At first glance, it's hard to tell that it's a Japanese restaurant. You might have to do a double-take. This place attracts a great lunch crowd, as it's close to people who work in the surrounding industrial area. Kura serves very good takeout at some of the best prices in town. Everyone knows that $11 for a bento box is a steal. I also like the fact that you can actually create your own bento box by choosing any three items off the menu.
3 - Sushi In Sushi
Sushi in Sushi is located in a plaza on top of a hill on Battleford Road and has been around for four years. This small Japanese restaurant has about 30 seats, but you can tell the resto is known for being a takeout joint. They have daily roll specials, so you can pay a reasonable $9.50 for eight pieces or get two rolls to go for $7.99. We got the deluxe dinner bento box and it was very flavourful, not to mention generous.
2 - K&B Sushi
While Mississauga has a ton of tasty AYCE Japanese joints, there’s always room for one more. When well-known (and for many, well-loved) AYCE joint Sushi Sushi shuttered its doors, some locals fretted over what would take the hot spot’s place. Fortunately for sushi aficionados, AYCE resto K&B Sushi recently set up shop in Sushi Sushi’s old Millcreek Drive location. K&B, which currently operates two other GTA locations--one in Oakville and the other in Etobicoke--offers a decadent mix of Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Thai cuisine. Like other tech-savvy AYCE joints, it utilizes an ultra-convenient iPad ordering system. In terms of the Mississauga menu, the resto offers sushi, sashimi, maki and hand rolls, tempura, sushi pizza, chicken katsu, udon, soba and donburi dishes.
If you can’t eat in, you can order from the resto’s huge takeout menu. It’s perfect for when you just don’t want to cook.
1 - Arigato
Arigato is located off of Dixie Rd. and Eastgate Parkway in a small nondescript commercial plaza called Dixie Park Centre, a place predominantly known to the local Asian community and others by word of mouth.
Arigato has over 100 different Japanese and Korean food menu items (with photos to help you decide) that are downright cheap and delicious. There is a daily lunch and dinner rush (except on Mondays when they are closed) where you will find a mix of diners that work in the building or in the surrounding area. The food court is also open on weekends for lunch and dinner.
