The 25 best sushi restaurants for takeout in metro Detroit, according to Yelp!

Listen, no one looks cute eating sushi, but that's part of the experience — along with dropping a loaded piece of Volcano roll messily into the perfect mix of soy sauce and eye-watering wasabi before unlocking your jaw to make sure every delicious bit of sauce and crunchy stove makes it in one bite. Though Michigan is not a sushi hotspot (we're more into freshwater, ya dig?), we know our sushi and like most things, everyone has a favorite spot that they want to scream it from the mountain tops about because metro Detroiters have a way of letting their feelings be known. Well, thankfully Yelp! is here to help guide our indecisive stomachs with the colorful experiences of those who lived — and ate — to tell the tale. These are the best places for sushi takeout, according to Yelp! users. (Oh, and no, we have no friggin' idea as to how Noble Fish failed to crack the top 25, but... maybe we'll Yelp! about it.)

11205 Allen Rd., Southgate; 734-225-7300; joasushi.com
“I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this food from the restaurant. I give it a 6-star if they had that rating. Everything was excellent, fresh, and very appealing to the eye as far as presentation. Highly recommend it. Today was my first opportunity to try their food and I will continue to be a regular customer.” —Pati W.  on Yelp

“First time ordering from this restaurant today, (they are open for take-out during COVID-19)! Coming from someone who grew up in Japan, great sushi. I particularly liked the sashimi and nigiri, highly recommend. Try the tamago sashimi! It's a traditional japanese sweet flavored mini-omlete. The owner was super kind, great customer service. Definitely going to be stopping by more often. :)” —Sabrina S.  on Yelp

22. Inyo
22871 Woodward Ave., Ferndale; 248-543-9500; inyorestaurant.com
“I came on a Saturday night and was lucky enough to get a seat at the bar. My boyfriend and I ordered two drinks, 4 rolls of sushi, and the fried gyoza.
The bartender was so nice and informative and really helped us since it was our first time. The sushi arrived so fast it was unreal. We got all four rolls on a Saturday night, in I kid you not, 10 minutes! The gyoza came shortly after. All of which were so yummy! My favorite was the dragon roll. The sushi was fresh and the service was great!
I would say the price is a little expensive but that's what you would expect from a sushi place. Overall we were satisfied and I'll definitely come back!” —Lily N.  on Yelp

21. TN Thai Bistro
17100 Kercheval Ave., Grosse Pointe; 313-885-2695; tnthaibistro.com
“I haven't been to this place in about a year until today and couldn't remember how it was.  True to my nature I ordered sushi. 
The service was great and the food was reasonably priced (especially for it to be in Grosse Pointe) and awesome. My hand roll was huge filled with a TON of tuna. My nigiri was a nice size too. I was actually shocked. The Shrimp California was also very good. I tend to stick to the raw sushi but wanted to try something I never had.
Overall this place was awesome and I definitely will be coming back!” —Stephen N.  on Yelp

19. Hi Sushi
28931 Van Dyke, Warren; 586-510-6037; hisushiwarren.com
“So we went here twice in one week! Does that say a lot or what? We came in at a very cold, rainy night and although it was chilly inside the miso soup sure warms you right up! We only ordered sushi but you get complimentary soup and salad. That's what draws me in. I can get the best of everything for such a great price.
Our server has been the same both times and she is really, really great!! She is prompt, courteous, and great at giving advice. If you are ever nervous to ask about what to get with certain things you like, this is a great starter place. She can give THE best advice on what to order!! She brings it, checks on you to make sure it's exactly what you wanted.. fantastic in my book!! I need that reassurance that she wants to make sure the experience is everything YOU wanted it to be!!
So much yes on this place. The service, the food, the everything.” —Amanda T. on Yelp

“Hit this spot for lunch, and I have a feeling I'll hit it many more times.
Was a lil hesitant when we walked in, since we were the only 2 people there at 11:30, but many started to stroll in after us. I started off with Dynamite Mussels!  DEE-LISH-IOUS!  Then I got the double crunch roll, more than enough to fill me up, since they started us out with soup and salad too!.My coworker got the bento box w/ beef, and the beef was to die for.  Cooked perfectly and tender. Can't wait to come back and try the hibachi side!” —Carey C. on Yelp

“In town for work, and I was craving sushi. This restaurant just happened to be a mile from me, so I opted to try it, and I'm so happy I did! I love the entire aesthetic vibe of the neighborhood and the restaurant. It's clean, modern, and comfortable. More importantly, the food and service are exceptional. I had the new Sunday Morning Roll and vegetable spring rolls...so delicious! I will be back!” —Abby F. on Yelp

16. Xushi Ko
16351 Ford Rd. C-118, Dearborn; 313-914-1453; xushi-ko.com
“A couple friends and myself ventured to Xushi Ko this past Sunday afternoon for lunch, what a great decision! When you sit down, they have electronic menus, basically just an iPad/tablet as a menu. It was nice because there are a bunch of different sushi rolls and if you click on the name of the roll, it pops up with a picture of the roll along with the price. It was a nice touch. We started off with the Spiral Avocado with tuna and it was amazing. Great way to start your meal. We then ordered and I went with the Sushi tower which for $10 is well worth every penny. It was delicious! I also split a Lion King roll which was just so flavorful and can't wait to have it again. You can't go wrong with whatever specialty roll you order there. The played design of the sushi is even a nice touch. Can't wait to try more!” —Kari S. on Yelp
