    We arrived at the restaurant following recommendations for a place that serves gluten-free dishes. The dishes were very tasty, we arrived right when the kitchen was closing and we couldn't add dishes.

    the hot food was INCREDIBLE, probably the best miso, pork gyoza, and karaage I've ever had. sushi was decent, not bad but probably won't order again. service was fine, our server didn't seem to want to have anything to do with us, but our order was taken and delivered smoothly so no complaints there. we got there at 5, there were only a couple of tables, so the food came very quickly. definitely going to come eat here again :)

    The food was not great - our tempura tofu basically had a ketchup sauce; the drinks were messed up and very small, and the sashimi order was not what we asked for.

    If you would like a quiet conversation with your dinner companion, this is not the place to go on a Saturday night. The noise level was so high in the restaurant that we had difficulty hearing each other across a very small table. Although the food is very good, the dishes are served too quickly one after the other and positioning them on the table can become an issue. That said, I have come to this restaurant for many years at different times and have always enjoyed what I have been served.

    Excellent service, the food was top-drawer. Minor check on the volume of the music, which made conversation difficult. I requested a quiet table, but the music was through out the room, so...

    The drinks were good, the food was very good as well. Everything was fresh and different type of sushis I had never had before. If you like Sake they had sooo many options. The service was A1, our server was super nice, kept coming to see us to clear the empty plates and asked if we wanted anything else. He offered to give us suggestions, and they were good! He was asking us questions like if we were from the area etc. Would go back for the food but mostly the service. Many places have disappointed me recently so thanks for the awesome service.

    Très cher et très mauvais service. Nous avions réservé une table, avons commandé nos plats et vins directement en arrivant. Nous avons dû réclamer le vin 3 fois avant d'être servis 30mn plus tard et deux d'entre nous (qui avaient commandé seulement 1 rouleau et 2 nigiris) ont attendu 1h30 pour les avoir alors qu'on avaient déjà reçu 3 services chacun.. et une chance que le restau était loin d'être complet

    Food is outstanding-server great but plan 2+ hrs from the time you place tour order-servers do everything from taking orders, delivering food and clearing. If you want excellent sushi and cooked Japanese food this is your restaurant.

    Waiter was unfriendly and before that the manager was incredibly unwelcoming. We should have left but still decided to give it a try since we had made a reservation. The whole experience was intimidating. I have been to Japan and my Wife and I have been to many Japanese Restaurants in the past. We found the food very good, reflecting the hard work, high quality and creativity of the Kitchen Staff. It is very sad that the waiter and Manager do not render tribute to such effort and damage the food experience with their unfriendly and intimidating attitude.

    Absolutely some of the best food and service in Montréal. It's a popular place so quiet intimacy is not it, but it still manages to be romantic enough for a first date but lively enough to go with friends. The bar service is amazing and I cannot rave enough about the food. Service is fast and friendly. This is a Montréal must!
