Adventures in Toronto: Sushi Island


One late evening, we ventured over to the Little Italy area of Toronto. We were in the mood for sushi and was looking for Sushi Island, located at 571 College St. It was pretty late in the evening and they had stopped offering their All you can eat special (which starts from about $14). Therefore, we were only able to order from their regular menu. Here are some highlights.

I think this was a pity salad. This is probably the tiniest salad I’ve ever seen.

Downtown roll (Eel, tobiko, cucumber, and cream cheese)

Brown rice sushi (Brown rice with seaweed bits and black sesame seeds)

Sushi Island was a pretty good place. The sushi was alright. They were probably close to closing their kitchen when we arrived. That explains the pity salads they offered us, since we were not expecting complimentary salads with our sushi plates. Brown rice sushi is always a neat thing to try. The atmosphere was kind of nice as well. They had these folding panel doors, which gave an outdoor dining atmosphere. Also, we were quite entertained by the drunkards leaving the nearby bars and screaming on the streets. The dining experience probably would have been better during late afternoon/dinner hours. I am very curious about their All you can eat menu though.

    That looks wonderful. I would really love to go to a sushi restaurant. The only opps. I have are when we go to a Japanese Steak house. The sushi has always been quite good, but I’d like to experience the difference between the JSH and a dedicated Sushi place.
    I’d stick to the “beginners sushi” I think.
