There are many spots to grab sushi in Atlanta. But when you really want an haute experience, you’re your chop sticks and head to one of these top five sushi places in Atlanta. When it comes to the freshness, taste and ambiance, these five take the prize.
1 MF Sushi Bar
A long time sushi favorite in Atlanta, you can count on MF Sushibar to roll some great maki. Grab a seat at the sushi bar and watch the sushi chefs create culinary masterpieces with their “Magic Fingers”. Although every roll on the menu is delightful, the spicy tuna stands among the top. Save yourself some time and order a second roll before you devour your first. You will thank me later.
265 Ponce de Leon Ave
This chic Midtown restaurant means business. Aside from the menu filled with a variety of Indochine cusine, Steel has a great sushi menu and a sleek sushi bar to go with it. Sit at the bar (there is plenty of room) and watch the sushi masters create their magic one roll at a time. Word to the wise: when Steel says hot, they mean it. If you think you can handle it, try the Firecracker Roll, made with spicy tuna and topped with crab and jalapeno. It is worth the burn.
950 W. Peachtree St. NW
Atlanta, GA 30309
The only problem with Genki, the sexy sushi house in Buckhead, is that we always end up eating too much. When you have more than one favorite on the menu, chances are you are going to order both. At Genki, we can’t help but order the Dynamite Roll, which is tuna, salmon and yellow tail with cucumber, tomato, scallions topped with tobiko and a four chili sauce. And if that’s not enough to set you off, the Tuna Symphony entree will surely do the trick.

4 Hashiguchi Jr.
After some retail therapy at the Shops Around Lenox, toast to your purchases with some mouth-watering sushi at Hashiguchi Jr. The ingredients are fresh and the sushi melts in your mouth. If you are not into fish, try one of the vegetarian rolls like the Avocado Kampyo roll.
5 Park Tavern
This neighborhood sushi bar and brewery is located in the heart of Midtown beside Piedmont Park and boasts spectacular skyline views. While the atmosphere alone is enough to get you here, the unexpected sushi menu will keep you coming back..on a very regular basis. Opt for patio seating and savor the fresh and delightful sushi menu. In honor of the city, try the Piedmont Roll, which is a spicy hamachi and asparagus roll topped with tuna tataki, jalapeno, crispy rice, avocado and spicy soy.
