    J'ai trouver surtout que la déco était magnifique ! Ensuite la bouffe à un bon rapport qualité prix. Pour avoir essayer plusieurs restau japonais dans le genre au centre-ville, j'ai trouvé la bouffe un peu moins constante; c'est pas tout les plats qui sont très bons. Mais pour la location (plateau) et pour le prix, nous étions bien satisfait! Service un peu lent, il ne faut pas être pressé. L'ambiance n'est pas nomplus très festive si on compare aux autres restau bar japonais de Mtl. Mais ça peut être un plus pour certaine personne!

    We came here while on vacation on a quiet Sunday night. It took us two hours to get through a meal, and we ordered basic food like sushi. The waitress forgot we were there twice, yet the place wasn't even 25% full. It was awful and I would recommend going to other restaurants for your sushi cravings.

    I've been to several Izakayas in the city and all over the world and this is not one. The food is OK but it's far from authentic. Clearly the chef is cooking heavily Szechuan-influenced food. The service is a complete disaster. They seated us at a dirty table, took them 20 minutes to clean it up, another 15 minutes before they took our drink order, another 20 minutes for the food order. We didn't see any food for at least 45 minutes. The whole ordeal lasted close to 3 hours. Service is cold and uneducated. Too bad since the restaurant looks nice. Disappointing.

    We went to the Kinoya with a rather large group ( almost 10 peoples ), and everybody enjoyed the place. The ambiance was really great, trendy and cosy. The food was good and sophisticated and the alcohol list was great, with a large choice of traditional drinks ( the plum wine was excellent ;) ). And most of all, the service was excellent. The waitress was really, always here to offer refill when our glasses were empty, and gave us good suggestions for drinks and food. In short, i'll definitely go back to that place

    The waitress gave us no attention. When we got the food the quality was poor and sashimis were frozen. I dont recommend this restaurant at all!

    Excellent atmosphere, great service and delicious food. The takoyaki were especially good. Nice touch with a non-alcoholic sake bomb for the designated driver!

    The second time I went there was to celebrate my birthday with a group of friend. Everybody without exception was delighted by the quality of the food, every plate we tried was just so tasty and well presented. I was just surprised to see that it was a bit empty for a Friday night. We'll go back for sure.
