Inakaya is a bit further from downtown than the other restaurants on this list (about a 20-minute drive from downtown), but well worth a visit.

2019 Devine St., Columbia, SC 29205

Open Monday to Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., closed on Sunday

(803) 931-0555

Located in Five Points, a short walk from Insomnia Cookies, you can go straight from dinner to dessert. Its proximity to the USC campus makes it a great place for college students, but its delicious sushi makes it a great option for anyone who fancies it. Try the Super Spicy Roll if you’re feeling adventurous. Don’t worry, there are plenty of non-spicy options out there as well.

Sushi & Hibachi to take away

1100 Elmwood Avenue, Columbia, SC 29201

Open Monday to Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., closed on Sunday

(803) 400-0988

Located downtown just between Main Street and Cottontown, Sushi & Hibachi To Go is only open for take out and delivery (hence “take out”). This makes it the perfect place to stop on the way home from work or for a quick lunch. You can choose between the tempura crab roll or the spicy tuna roll, or maybe switch things up with a chicken and shrimp entree. They have a large menu to keep you coming back.

SakiTumi Grill & Sushi Bar

807 Gervais Street, Columbia, SC 29201

Open Wednesday to Sunday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday for brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., closed Monday and Tuesday

(803) 931-0700

SakiTumi is called “Colombia’s best kept secret” because, although it is right in the middle of Vista, you have to search a little to find it. The restaurant does not face the street, you have to go around the back of the building. However, once you find it, it’s worth the search!

The restaurant menu is creative and huge. There’s something for everyone, from adventurous foodies (is anyone else really interested in trying a “Sushi Burrito?”) To those who prefer a more standard option (think California roll). Tripadvisor ranks SakiTumi as the third best sushi restaurant in Colombia. And did we mention that the restaurant also has a full bar? What more could you ask for?

Red Sake offers an all-you-can-eat lunch for just $ 12.99 that will satisfy even the hungriest who come to visit us. The restaurant menu offers a large selection of soups, owls, sushi and more. However, if you go for the all-you-can-eat option, keep in mind that you will be charged for any food not eaten, so try not to order too much to eat at one time. Either way, it will be hard not to enjoy your visit.

Japanese restaurant Camon

Open Tuesday to Saturday from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday
