Mumbaikars, Fancy Sushi Tonight?

8 fantastic sushi joints to eat at or order from.

For once, something healthy and delicious caught on and stayed for good. We are talking about sushi. Years ago, sushi and other Japanese specialties were served only in 5-star hotels' restaurants. And it took quite a while before sushi was made accessible at reasonable prices. Today, sushi is available in most Asian restaurants and there are sushi food trucks too. Slowly but steadily, it's become a go-to favourite for a substantial number of people. Besides, in a city like Mumbai where seafood is in abundance, sushi has got to be fantastic.

Let's look at few places you could get some good sushi at.
