There may be dozens of restaurants in San Francisco that serve sushi—at least according to Yelp’s business categories—but not all of those establishments offer delivery sushi.
So where should you order from when you’re looking for fresh sushi but aren’t necessarily interested in rolling out to a sit-down restaurant?
To find out, we compared the eateries listed on delivery service providers Caviar and Doordash with our own Yelp analysis to locate San Francisco’s best sushi delivery spots.
1793 Haight St. (Upper Haight)
Located in the Upper Haight between Cole and Shrader streets, Ginza serves up—and sends out—13 different rolls, as well as two sashimi offerings.
Chef’s signature rolls include Ginza (yellowtail, cucumber, kaiware, topped with seared yellowtail, avocado, jalapeno, spicy aioli, and squid ink tobiko) and Daburu (salmon, cucumber, kaiware, topped with salmon, sliced lemon, micro cilantro, and yuzu tobiko), and there are even a few vegetarian and gluten-free rolls.
If you order through Caviar, per roll prices range from about $11 to $15.
3064 24th St. (the Mission)
There’s more to the Mission’s food scene than burritos, pupusas and guacamole—there’s Basa Seafood Express.
Basa has dozens of sushi rolls for eaters to choose from, and popular menu items include the eight-piece double salmon roll and the sushi special combo, which includes eight pieces of caterpillar roll, two pieces of salmon nigiri, two pieces of tuna nigiri and seaweed salad.
Basa’s rolls range from about $4 to $12.
669 Townsend St. (SoMa)
If you’re craving sushi for lunch, or say, after 9:30pm, consider Okane. The SoMa restaurant boasts a robust menu of Japanese cuisine, including eight specialty rolls.
Favorites include Shinjuku (snow crab and avocado topped with torched A5 wagyu beef, fried garlic, and Sancho pepper) and Kappabashi (soy zuke bluefin tuna mixed with smoked pickled radish and green onion).
If you place a delivery order, most rolls are priced between $14 and $16.
704 Sutter St. (Lower Nob Hill)
Located in Lower Nob Hill, Sanraku has nearly two dozen sushi rolls on its menu, not to mention its a la carte menu of nigiri.
The restaurant is well-known for its combined sushi and sashimi platters: order the Sushi and Sashimi Platter (seven-piece sashimi, six-piece nigiri, and six-piece California roll) or the Sakura (Chef's best selection: 8-piece nigiri, and 6-piece blue fin tuna roll).
Specialty platters range in price from $21 to $48, but sushi rolls run as cheap as $7.
501 Balboa St. (Inner Richmond)
Nestled in the Inner Richmond, Yuubi Japanese Restaurant is a delivery sushi staple. The eatery’s long menu includes hand rolls, sashimi, nigiri and of course, sushi.
Both the Crazy Crazy Roll (fried spicy salmon and topped seared albacore with spicy kimchi mayo, jalapeno, and eel sauce) and the Spider Roll (soft shell crab, avocado, cucumber, and tobiko with eel sauces) are fan favorites, as is the Finity Roll (snow crab and peach inside top with salmon, avocado, eel, spicy mayo, unagi sauce, and tempura cruneby).
According to Caviar, rolls begin at $6, but most of Yuubi's sushi is priced around $13.
1655 Market St. (Hayes Valley)
Given its prime Market Street location, Shido is one of the most accessible delivery sushi spots in San Francisco.
The eatery has all of the classics, including the Spicy Tuna Roll, the Dragon Roll (eel, avocado, shrimp tempura and unagi sauce) and the 49’er Roll (salmon, avocado, cucumber, lemon and tobiko).
Rolls start at around $8 and go up to roughly $16, depending on what you order.
