They say that sushi and vegetarian together is an oxymoron, a tall tale, even a legend, if you will. Well, they are soy wrong, and whenever we are told that, we can’t control our tempura. Vegetarians can have sushi too, without or without fish.

And so, we present our picks of the best vegetarian sushi in town.


Kofuku in Bandra has a good hand with making authentic Japanese food, and it extends its way to vegetarian food too. They serve two types of sushis – nigiri and saki. Nigiri is sushi with two ingredients – a bed of rice and vegetables. two in a portion are served.

Maki is what they do best – proper sushi rolls cut into eight pieces. The recommended ones are the super crunchy rolls (that is the name), special vegetarian rolls and California rolls, among other options.

Pa Pa Ya

Pa Pa Ya, situated swankily on the top floor of Palladium mall, has quickly become one of our favourite pan-Asian food joints in the city. They are generous with their options when it comes to sushi, and you may try their vegetarian spicy avocado, maki rolls and spicy taki roll.

You can also try their sushi burger, and a vegetarian sushi matrix, which is literally a geometric construction of food, where 19 pieces of different types of sushi are served up on a wooden matrix-like structure.

Sushi Cafe

Sushi Cafe, a really small easy-to-miss restaurant in Santacruz, has really delicious sushi options – and even vegetarian ones. Try their Ikibana vegetarian sushi with asparagus, avocado and cucumber and the tofu chilli sushi with a spicy Japanese chilli sauce.

They come with eight pieces in a portion. If you aren’t in the mood to get out of your PJs, you can get them home-delivered too.

#LBBTip: Ask them to go a little easy on the wasabi, as it’s pretty pungent here.

Global Fusion

Global Fusion rolls up amazing sushi for vegetarians and vegans alike, and it isn’t too expensive too. You can opt for their classic Avacado one, which is a great vegetarian option. And if you're looking for something wholesome, you can opt for their veg platter too. Also, if you are a novice to sushi-eating, the staff here is well-trained enough to know not to snigger, and how much to explain how the concept of it to you.

Your best bet would be to take just a little longer lunch break, and head to their restaurant on a weekday. Their lunch buffet is priced at INR 999, and you can eat sushi to your heart’s content. 

Wink at Taj Vivanta

Slightly off the radar when it comes to the Japanese cuisine, but if you are in Cuffe Parade and don’t mind pulling on a few purse strings, check out this in the lobby-lounge at Taj Vivanta. They have a good selection of both nigiri and maki sushi, with five to six options in each type.

#LBBTip: Definitely try their shitake mushroom sushi roll, as well as the pickle radish roll.

Foo, Multiple Outlets

From their signature blue rice to their charcoal sushi, everything about this restaurant is a hit with those who love Pan-Asian cuisine. If a Japanese indulgence is what you’re looking for, head over to choose from an extensive sushi menu that offers both vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian sushi.

The vegetarian preparations are quite exciting and unique, so go ahead and try them all! We hear the Truffle Togarashi Black Riced Maki is quite popular here.

Nom Nom, Andheri

If you like sushi, check out Nom Nom the next time you’re in Andheri West. Easy on the pocket, Nom Nom offers a wide range of sushi preparations. While they have limited options for vegetarian sushis, but each one of them is worth a try. We love the California Dream Rolls here!

The Fatty Bao

You cannot miss out on The Fatty Bao when you’re craving fine Oriental cuisine, and if veg sushi is what you’re looking for, you’ll love what they have to offer. Their Avocado and Cream Cheese Roll and Tempura Fried Crispy Veg Roll are perfect for an indulgence.
