Miami is a melting pot unlike any other in the country. No matter your tastes or mood, there is always a buzzing restaurant a short drive or phone call away. Want Peruvian food? There's a place for that. Craving Haitian food? Check. Searching for sushi? We've got you covered with a list of the best sushi restaurants in Miami.
As one of Miami's oldest sushi restaurants, Hiro's has served North Miami residents for more than 20 years. And while it's moved onto bigger, posher things from its old beloved West Dixie Highway location, Hiro's has maintained the quality dining and service longtime diners expect. The move to a more refined locale hasn't led to an increase in prices, either, which is another plus. If you've got the late-night munchies, Hiro's is open into the wee hours of the morning, closing at 3:00 a.m.
It's Miami, so of course there's an Asian-Latin fusion on this list. Despite being a chain, SuViche offers scrumptious Japanese-Peruvian fusion that perfectly melds the each country's flavors. As you would expect, most of the dishes are creative combinations of sushi and ceviche. This seemingly unlikely pairing works masterfully together, which explains why there are now three locations in Miami.
One of Miami's fanciest restaurants is also one of the city's best sushi restaurants. Nobu isn't just a place to eat: it's a place to be seen, and it's not uncommon to see celebrities dining just a few tables away. However, the food is so good, you'll be more focused on devouring your plate than working up the courage to ask for an autograph.
Doraku knows that the best business plan is giving people what they want, and what do the people want? Happy hours. Doraku hosts a daily happy hour from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The happy hour menu includes reduced prices for their delicious sushi selections, and, because it's happy hour, you might as well wash it all down with a your favorite cocktail.
As South Beach's first Japanese restaurant, Toni's has a status few restaurants can approach with its extensive menu. They have roll combinations even the most seasoned sushi connoisseurs have never seen. Toni's isn't the type of place you visit once and, even among Miami's best sushi restaurants, it stands alone in a few respects.
Dining at Zuma is a step into luxury. Located within Brickell's posh, modern EPIC Hotel, you know what to expect as soon as you enter the door: fancy attire, a five-star menu, and wealthy patrons. The food here is worth every penny, but it will definitely cost you some coin.
Coral Gables is known for its variety of restaurants as well as the place to go if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of Brickell and South Beach. And if you're in Gables and want great sushi, go to Su Shin Isakaya. Su Shin drops all the pomp, circumstance and fanfare, and simply focuses on its authentic Japanese fare.
Sunset isn't another corner of Miami off the beaten path. But to the surprise of many, it's actually home to many of Miami's best restaurants, including Shibui Japanese Restaurant where you can expect your fill of authentic Japanese delights like sashimi, sushi and much more.
Exclusivity is what gives NAOE a lot of its cache. A high-end, reservation-only restaurant, you don't come here on a whim when you catch the munchies. They only offer two seatings per night, so competition for a spot is fierce. Their menu is especially delectable, so you better make your reservations well in advance.

The Japanese BBQ trend is something that I am excited to try! You can cook all of your food at your table so it's cooked just the way you like it. However, nothings goes better with BBQ than the fresh flavors of sushi. Luckily, Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ offers both!
Sushi from a buffet might not sound ideal but POC American Fusion Buffet & Sushi is garenteed to change your mind. For some fairly priced and absolutely delcious fish, this is your ideal destination.
