Cute cozy neighborhood atmosphere. Tamari or gluten free soy sauce is available with sashimi if you are looking for gluten-free meal.

Bartender or owner was very informative with the Japanese Whiskey I was searching for and the food was simply amazing as always!

It wasn’t what I was expecting. The fried Gyoza was a huge disappointment. Gyoza shouldn’t be fried. I would go back.

Les lumières sont trop intenses.
La serveuse sympathique, mais incapable de conseiller un accord met /saké et ne semble pas bien connaître les plats offerts.
Nourriture qui manque de punch.

友達との飲み会はいつもここで行われてさせてもらっています。ウェイターさんたちはいつも丁寧で、オーダーもちゃんと覚えてくれるから、本当に嬉しいです。店長さんも面白いなので、本当にオススメです。お酒の選択肢がたくさんあるので、楽しむことが存分にできます。

Very good food, although the selection of the menu is limited compared to other Izakayas in Montreal. Their ramens (hot or cold) are amazing and one of the best I’ve had. Service wasn’t very fast, I had to wait a good 10 minutes at the door before someone came to see me, even though I had a reservation, but that seemed to be only an issue with my table since they greeted other customers quite fast.

Authentic Japanese food. The fired chicken was one of the best in Montreal. The ramen was rather salty and would not recommend.

All was decent but they forgot about the soup so we had to cancel it. Otherwise, decent food, friendly service.

Their entries were excellent. However, we were not super impressed with our main dish of ramen and rice.

A good variety of Japanese speciality offerings both to eat and drink. Well presented just needs a bit more attention to fuse the flavours of ingredients. Excellently cooked fried chicken dish just short on taste. Salmon was nicely prepared over burnt grass (cool idea but didn’t add much to the taste however the salmon was gr8 quality. Pork ribs were very good.
Worth a try ...

We ordered some sashimi platter and some torched sushis. Sashimis are not their forte, more the torched semi-cooked sushis. When I get a craving for those sushis, I will go back there, but not for sashimis.

First time at this restaurant and it was great! We ordered a bunch of dishes and each tasted so good!! We also tried the Sake Sample and the waitress explained each very. Of course we can always read it up in the menu. They added a page that explains exactly what sake is... Noise level was quiet since we went on a Sunday night when it's super cold... Highly recommended for get together and a date.
