Japanese cuisine is a favorite in almost every corner of the globe, so it’s no surprise that Miami is teeming with fresh sushi restaurants for a Japanese food fix. Below is a list of our favorites from the suburbs to the city.
Perched in a quiet, residential street in Kendall, Shibui serves a wide selection of maki and hot dishes in a homey space. The dimly-lit eatery offers regular table seating downstairs, and upstairs a traditional Japanese-style seating option with cushions on the floor. Their teriyaki and tempura dinners are a must-try, as are their beautifully and deliciously prepared maki rolls. Shibui is open seven days a week in the evenings, just be sure to make reservations as weekends get busy!
Right along US1, Akashi has been catering to patrons for 20 years. Their generous portions and all-encompassing menu satisfy every craving. Indulge in a sushi boat of tuna, salmon, yellowtail and shrimp. End your meal on a sweet note with a hearty tempura cheesecake. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner every day.
This joint in North Miami Beach opens late—until 3 a.m.—so you can settle your sushi cravings after a night out. The restaurant also offers a happy hour drink menu with bar bites including crunchy spicy tuna, and baby taco tempura.
With locations in Miami Beach, Brickell, and Little River, there’s plenty of Moshi Moshi to go around, and you can get there very late – all locations are open until 5 a.m. nightly. The menu boasts a range of sushi roll options including shrimp tempura and avocado, ginger-soy marinated fried chicken, prawn poppers, sautéed Udon noodles, and more. Sake drinkers will appreciate their sake variety.
The tasty and creative menu at Pubbelly Sushi is one to try. Serving everything from sashimi, pork belly, crispy salmon roll to octopus ceviche, guests can indulge in a large selection of fresh and hot plates at this popular hotspot.
A fusion of Peruvian and Japanese cuisine, SuViche features Peruvian classic favorites such as lomo saltado, ceviche, and causa along with Japanese plates of spicy crunchy tuna roll, tuna tataki, and other dishes. Their Wynwood locale is a trendy hangout for its laid-back terrace seating with swings and sprawling bar.
The stylish Asian bistro in the Design District offers a menu of foods from across the Orient such as sushi, ramen, pho – all in a sophisticated setting. The owners of the restaurant are the same people behind Toni’s Sushi Bar in South Beach, which makes it all the more promising. Stop by for lunch for their bento box specials equipped with salad, sushi, tempura veggies and shrimp and gyoza, or make reservations for a sumptuous dinner.
