Best Sushi spot in Ottawa by a long shot. I stick to there vegan options but they outshine anything else I've ever tried. I really love their mushroom rolls and Inari. The portions are perfect and they do not cut any corners, even on simple avo Maki.

I got Shinka delivered to Kemptville (they do a different area every day, some areas have two days a month). I was so impressed! It was well packaged, and all the packaging was recyclable or compostable. The presentation was great. The food was delicious. Highly recommend the poke bowl that has both salmon and tuna. Also $10 for del ... read more

Top destination for excellent sushi in Ottawa. A friend referred Shinka for a real good sushi and ever since I tried it never gone back to any other places for sushi! Fresh and tasty beyond the limits. I got addicted to sushi after trying Shinka. John the owner is very dedicated to his profession. I admire this place and always consi ... read more

I visited this location for the first time during the pandemic. They are only doing take out now but the food is still amazing. Easily the best dynamite roll I have ever had. The Bento box is also extremely filling! Will come again.

Ordered via the community delivery. Great idea! Got the 32pc premium set, a piece of Wagyu nigiri, and spicy salmon aburi poke bowl. Absolutely worth the price, the fish was delicious and the preparation was excellent.

Fresh, tasty sushi, unique maki options.

Best sushi I've had in Ottawa so far. Great quality, fresh fish with nice deep flavours. Definitely also the priciest Sushi I've ever had, but I think this is worth it for what you get. Great customer service as well.

Love getting take out or eating in at this place (pre-covid times). The owner is passionate about his food and the service he provides and it shows. The staff is great and provide excellent service! This is hands down my go to sushi place.

Wow. Ordered take out. By far the best shushi I’ve had in Ottawa.

The best sushi in Ottawa. Excellent food and great service and always tastes delicious.
Fiona Peters via google.com - Aug 4, 2021
Absolutely delicious and, hands down, the best Sushi in the city! To the average person sushi may simply look like a little ball of rice with a slice of raw fish on top, but there is so much more that goes into the art of sushi-making. It must have the right colour, flavour, and texture and John and his team achieved just that! I hig ... read more

Nancy Barnes via facebook.com - Jul 23, 2021
There are only two top sushi places in Ottawa and Shinka is one of them. Assortments are fresh and delicious. Whether I order a takeout or dine in I am never disappointed with the food. The service is okay and the space is small but nice. The washroom is clean. The place is not accessible for persons of disability in a wheelchair o ... read more

Sashimi pieces were as fresh as you can get in Ottawa and the pieces were of a decent size. The rolls and nigiri were tasty as well expect maybe the chef’s rolls which was a bit weird (it was wrapped in rice paper). Not sure why we were given a massive slab of wasabi (bottom right of the pic). It tasted more like tube packaged than ... read more

Got this sushi box delivered for an at home birthday dinner. They offer such a good variety for us vegetarian sushi lovers. Many of their rolls come with personal unique sauces. I can’t wait to go dine in person when the restrictions allow it. Very clean, classy and appetizing presentation.

Always so yummy and amazing quality! Definitely the best place I've tried so far to get poke bowls and sushi. I always get the Hawaiian poke bowl and it's always filled with so much tuna that I end up finishing the rice and have extra tuna left (whereas everywhere else hardly gives any fish).

We have found that Shinka has the best consistent sushi for take out. The sashimi pieces are always very generous. Love their Japanese calamari - nice light batter and large serving. The rolls have less rice and more fish and other ingredients. We enjoy the Osaka, Butterfly and Rainbow rolls.

Since I'm expecting, I've been avoiding sushi, but the husband and I both had cravings for it and we thought we'd make the trip downtown for takeout and treat ourselves to Shinka for our anniversary.

Every bite was amazing. The fish exploded with flavour and the components were all well composed and balanced. The best sushi I've had in Ottawa so far. A little on the pricey side but once you taste, you know why.

Recently tried Shinka Sushi Bar for the first time and I can't believe I hadn't tried this restaurant earlier. The food is amazing and you can tell they only use fresh and high quality ingredients.

Best sushi in town! Definitely not "run of the mill" sushi, plenty of unique flavour combos, and all very fresh.

Some of the best sushi I ever had. Special recommendations: try the avocado Maki and shiitake roll.
Rita Neyer, PhD via google.com - May 7, 2021
This place is pricey, but worth every penny. I am particularly fond of their specials. Delicious sushi, always super fresh, beautiful presentation even when you order for take out. Great for business lunch, date or celebration meal. Highly recommend!
Galina Tsyganovskaya via google.com - May 6, 2021
One of the best places to eat in downtown Toronto/financial district (dine-in or takeout). The menu is based on seasonal ingredients which is always good. Innovative, fresh, and delicious food is what you’ll get here.

Shinka sushi is a total winner! My family was so thrilled to find a delicious sushi place in Ottawa that also has a vegan menu. This is such a treat for us and we always look forward to ordering from the amazing and varied vegan menu. Thank you Shinka!
Larissa Shaaked via google.com - Apr 21, 2021
Best vegan sushi in Ottawa! They have a great variety of vegan options and love all the different rolls and their vegan Gyoza are amazing.

Best sushi in Ottawa hands down. You pay a slightly higher price but you get the quality that comes with it. Even a simple rainbow roll beats other places because of the attention to detail and nice cuts of fish on top. Even the box that the order arrives in is beautiful. We came for the Otoro, but stayed for outstanding variety an ... read more

Every selection on the menu I ordered for a special birthday lunch was delicious and a feast for the eye. The calamari batter was the fluffiest I've eaten - and I'm Greek! This is the best sushi restaurant in town and I can't wait to go back. Thank you, Shinka crew!

The dine in area is small and cozy and the food is super good. Ordering through UberEats the food taste just as good! The sushi here is of the higher quality which is reflected in the price.

I cannot express how much I love Shinka Sushi Bar. We've ordered from countless sushi places across Ottawa and they are BY FAR the most delicious, fresh, and caring restaurant.

Always super fresh and delicious!! They take so much pride in there presentation and the service is top notched. Also my spouse has a sesame allergy and they always accommodate it which is so appreciated.

Ordered takeout from here through their website and it was both incredibly easy and the sushi was delicious. Website offers to set a pickup time so you don't have to guess when it's done and you can plan it around your day! Sushi was the best I've had in Ottawa so far.

I kept ordering from another sushi restaurant because I completely forgot about Shinka Sushi Bar but I will only be going here in the future.

Great sushi place. Tasted great. Fish seems fresh. Pieces are well rolled. The cut size of each piece, a little questionable, should it be cut thicker? At least it doesn't fall apart.
