I know, sushi isn’t what you immediately think of while in Key West, but honestly, some of the best I’ve had has been in Key West. Not sure if it’s the Island vibe or the salty air, but sushi seems to taste much better while you’re in Key West. Where’s your go-to place for sushi when you visit Key West? Here are my 5 Best Places for Sushi in Key West.
Did your favorite make the list?
Located at 700 Duval Street, this location is perfect for an afternoon snack of sushi. They start serving sushi at 4 pm every day. Pair your sushi with Happy Hour and save on your cocktails. They have a great selection of Island-inspired rolls. Two of my favorites are the Hawaiian Roll (not really thinking Key West right?) and the Spicy Tuna Tempura roll. The Hawaiin Roll has spicy tuna, avocado, cucumber, pineapple and then the roll is topped with Wakami Salad and Macadamia nuts. One of my favorites for sure.
Located at 1401 Simonton, this place has been in Key West since 1998. A true favorite of locals. They serve sushi as well as traditional Japanese food. They have a full sake menu as well. Due to the popularity of this place, reservations are requested. Ambrosia serves a great Bento Box on their lunch menu. As of March 2021 – this restaurant closed.
Located at 504 Southard Street, this place serves amazing sushi and Thai food. Who can pass up their “Love Key West Roll”? It features fried lobster tempura, asparagus, and scallions topped with avocado, spicy mayo, eel sauce, and yum yum sauce. Plus they have a full selection of Thai dishes as well.

One of the newer places in Key West is located at 925 Duval Street. If you’ve been out exploring the nightlife of Key West, this may be a great late-night stop as they are open until 4 am nightly. Their menu ranges from basic sushi to something a bit more on the adventurous side.
Thai Island Restaurant and Sushi Bar
This one is located out in the Garrison Bight. If you are planning to head out on a charter with Make it So, this should be your stop afterward. Or, maybe grab a bite to go and take it out on the charter… or simply head over and have a relaxing lunch or dinner. The options are endless. They have a Lunch Bento Box option as well as dinner combos that feature soup and sushi.
