Best sushi restaurants in seven Northeast Ohio counties based on Yelp rankings

21 min read

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Sushi has become such a popular dish around the world over the last 30 years that it now has its own holiday.

International Sushi Day will be celebrated June 18.

But just because it is a global phenomenon, doesn’t mean that many of us truly understand what the dish is all about.

When most folks think of sushi, they think “raw fish.” But not all sushi is ‘raw,’ even though raw fish – sashimi in Japanese – is the most popular ingredient.

The term sushi actually refers to several foods made with rice seasoned with vinegar, then garnished with raw fish or vegetables. Those rolls you may be envisioning are actually maki, which is just one of many types of sushi.

If you are a big fan of sushi — or adventurous — and plan to celebrate this year, you’ll need a primer of what to know before you head out to one of Northeast Ohio’s best sushi restaurants.

To be certain you get only the best sushi available in the region, we asked our friends at Yelp Cleveland which sushi restaurants their reviewers ranked at the top of their list.

Methodology: This is a list of top sushi restaurants in the greater Cleveland area for 2020 according to Yelp Cleveland. Yelp Cleveland identified businesses in the sushi category, then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews in 2020. This list looked at businesses in the following counties: Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit. We worked directly with Yelp Cleveland on this list to reflect accurate data.

We’ve broken the results down by county for you.

For $10.50, this deal really can’t be beat. I’m not a huge fan of California rolls, but theirs was quite tasty. The tuna sashimi was delicious as well as all the other accompaniments! I added a spicy maki roll (I’ve also tried the spicy octopus) to round out the meal. It’s somewhat of a small operation so definitely allow for some time when ordering takeout!” – Marc C.

3900 Medina Rd. Ste. X, Akron, 330-670-0288

Yelp rating: 4 stars

Sample review: “By far the best sushi in Ohio. Period. Sushi is my favorite food so I am thus extremely picky, but I’ve never had a single bad experience at Sakura. The sushi is always extremely fresh and they have a much larger selection than any other sushi restaurant in the area. I personally cannot get enough of the Valentine and Angel rolls. I get Sakura typically once a week because it is so consistently excellent every single time. If you are at all debating going, trust me and go for it. You will not be disappointed!” – Ben F.

1110 E. Tallmadge Ave., Akron, 234-706-6045

Yelp rating: 3.5 stars

Sample review: “I’m giving this place four stars not because the food is just simply amazing or great but because it’s so much better than anything else in this area that I’ve tried. I stopped in this place after work one day based on Yelp reviews themselves. It’s a very small place in a very tiny strip mall and I almost drove right past it. This is a take-out only place with no dine-in seats. I ordered, paid, and received my food in under 10 minutes which is awesome. The sushi was delicious and made fresh as we waited, my only complaint was that it was actually a little bit warm, maybe because of how hot it is in there? But the food is actually quite delicious, all made fresh, and quite a good value…” – John C.
