The first specialized sushi restaurant in New York City since 1974.

Takesushi has been serving authentic Japanese cuisine for over 40 years. 

The restaurant opened in 1974 in its original midtown Manhattan location. Additional locations later included Woodmere, Great Neck, Toronto, and Washington D.C. 

Now, Takesushi is serving its home community of Sunnyside, Queens. Nearly each day, owner Robin Kawada visits the Fulton fish market in the Bronx and hand selects high quality fish based on seasonal variety and freshness, taking into consideration their regional waters, seasonal habits and other aspects.


Kawada is able to draw from his former experience running a seafood import and export company when selecting fish, and now prepares sushi himself at Sunnyside.

Please Note:

Our current menu is our COVID-19 Pandemic Menu. We have lowered our prices by 30-50% from our original menu to help you out during these trying times and because we want you to have the opportunity to try our high-quality fresh fish. Thank you for keeping our restaurant open.

At the same time, we are charging a service fee to financially support our servers and kitchen staff, including our kitchen chef. Our staff are not working the same amount of hours as they did pre-pandemic, so they rely on generous tips in addition to the service fee.

We offer indoor, outdoor dining, and delivery.
