The best takeout sushi in Hong Kong

Quick, affordable and light – takeaway sushi is a staple of Hong Kong lunches

Japanese food is a favourite among Hongkongers but we can’t always afford the time (or the money) for a sit-down omakase meal. But the great thing about sushi? You can easily get it at many takeout stores dotted all over the city, and it’s super easy to grab-and-go. From supermarkets to popular chain stores, these are the best takeaway sushi spots in town. By Karl Lam

Hong Kong’s best sushi takeout

Genki Sushi
  • Restaurants
  • Causeway Bay

Let’s begin with the OG affordable of sushi in town (and OG angry face emoji), Genki Sushi. It offers options catering for one to six people, with choices like appetisers, hand rolls and full-on sushi sets. We recommend the sashimi set ($178), though, for 17 moreish pieces of salmon, tuna, scallop, red shrimp and surf clam.

Great Food Hall
  • Restaurants
  • Admiralty

As well as its fresh salad bowls and sandwiches, Pacific Place’s Great Food Hall is a, uh, great place for some grab-and-go sushi. Popular options include the classic salmon sushi, California rolls, tuna salad rolls and a decadent salmon avocado sushi combo.

K-Roll
  • Restaurants
  • Sheung Wan

Okay, so it’s not exactly Japanese sushi, rather Korean gimbap, but K-Roll is too good to ignore. The hip, modern joint is ideal for takeout with branches in Sheung Wan, Central and Causeway Bay. Opt for the $55 K-Roll, with flavours ranging from crab salad to beef bulgogi. Feeling more daring? There’s even a Korrito ($70), a fun spin on a burrito with fillings of your choice like spicy tofu and tonkatsu. 

Sen-ryo
  • Restaurants
  • Kowloon Tong

With branches from Central to Tai Koo, Sen-Ryo is a reliable go-to for takeaway sushi without sacrificing quality. Don’t be flummoxed by their selection, simply go for a one-person 12-piece sushi set ($145), which comes with bonito, yellowtail and steamed shrimp sushi. Or alternatively, fork out an extra $15 and get the version with seared salmon, eel, and fried prawn rolls among other goodies.

Shiro
  • Restaurants
  • Admiralty

With several outlets, including at Pacific Place and Taikoo Place, Shiro offers a more indulgent service than your regular takeout joint. We’re talking everything from maki rolls and tempura to ramen and bento boxes. Prices here are a bit more expensive, but it’s worth it. We recommend the tobiko crab roe sushi ($38) or unagi freshwater eel ($65) option.

Sushi Express
  • Restaurants
  • Mong Kok

Craving some fresh fish but short of time and moolah? With branches all over Hong Kong, Sushi Express serves up good sushi at low prices. The folks here can comfortably feed a large group with the banquet sushi set (27 or 35 assorted pieces including salmon and shrimp rolls). Sister brand Sushi Takeout is also great for picking up single sushi rolls if you want just a snack.

Sushi Hiro
  • Restaurants
  • Japanese
  • Causeway Bay

For something a little quirkier, head to Sushi Hiro and order their Delux Hiro Big Roll Sushi for takeaway. It doesn’t come cheap at $280 for eight pieces but the ingredients – prawn, sea eel, scallop and shitake mushroom among others – totally make up for it. You can also go for the Edomae style sea eel sushi set for $260.
