The Sushi Chef – Thornton, Ontario, Canada


Staying at my buddy’s place for a few days and decided to treat him and his family to a take-out Japanese Lunch. As I was googling around the area, there a a few options but looking at the lunch options at The Sushi Chef, I decided to give this place a try.

The moment I called The Sushi Chef, I was blown away on how courteous the person answered the phone. He politely asked me to wait on the phone as he was dealing with a customer at the store. After 30s, he talked to me and took all of my orders correctly.

After 15 minutes drive to The Sushi Chef, my order was ready and they greeted me and it’s amazing how friendly every staff at the restaurant, we are talking from the server, to the manager and to the sushi chefs.

The take out package were all nicely prepared so by the time I got to my buddy’s home, every food item were intact. The veggie tempura were still nice & hot by the time I delivered back to the buddy’s home. The veggie tempura was crispy and nicely battered. However, I would prefer it has more variety. As you can see from this picture, it’s a big portion of tempura which was amazing, but most likely were tempura yam, sweet potato and broccoli. I would luv to see more green beans, perhaps eggplants and more variety of veggies.

Our sushi rolls were fresh and tasty. I also enjoyed my cooked food bento box that came with teriyaki salmon (nicely grilled and on point, not overcooked but juicy which I prefer). Bento box also came with spring rolls, a maki roll (3pcs), steam rice and teriyaki veggies.

The Sushi Chef has a good variety of lunch special options. They are in good portion, good value and worthwhile especially it includes miso soup and salad along with each lunch special combo. It’s not the best sushi that I had but it definitely does the job and I was grateful the Innisfil region actually have sushi restaurants around to serve the communities.
