Waitress was really attentive, answered questions, provide great recommendations. Now for the food. We eat sushi / sashimi all the time and were not sure what to expect from look at the menu ahead of time. Glad we went! Kudos to the chefs for how the sushi and salads are made. Very unique with lots of amazing flavour. It’s such that you don’t actually use wasabi and soya sauce. Will go back for sure and highly recommend for those wanting to try sushi differently.

I had a great experience at Minami thanks to very friendly servers, Tamaki and Dan. The price might seem a bit high, but it is more than worth for the quality and the size of each dish. I am looking forward to going back soon.

Amazing food , let alone the service! The nigiris were impeccable - my favorite was the ebi and the scallop. The salmon oshi was on point as well.
Was here on our anniversary and they surprised us with a little dessert. Will be back for sure.

We ordered the Sashimi -Gozen Lunch Set and the Beef Sukiyaki.

Sashimi was fresh and well made. Beef Sukiyaki was not the classic one, so I was initially surprised. But after reading the details on the menu, I realized that Minami made their version of the Sukiyaki.

The sushi rolls had too much rice but overall, it was a great meal considering the quality of the food, service, and ambiance. Most of all, the price was worth the value of our meal. We will definitely come back.

Thank you.

The nigiri was excellent. The roles were not - tasted like canned tuna and the second one was just okay. Presentation was great. Service was great. I would go back but would absolutely not order a roll!

Modern yet warm vibe. Decent size outdoor patio but only have umbrellas, rain would be an issue. Table by the windows are fun. Service is good if not too affected ( saccharin sweet). Food is exquisite but very expensive for portion size. Went for special birthday dinner.

The execution by the kitchen is flawless. There’s an attention to detail that is obvious. Presentation was only surpassed by the flavour of the dishes and the creativity of the Chef. It was outstanding in every way.

We really enjoyed the food and service. We tried the chef’s menu and were very impressed with the quality of ingredients and the fusion tastes in the four course menu. We also upgraded to the wagyu in the tasting menu and the beef was excellent. The person looking after us was shin taro and he was superb. The only word of caution is that the patio can get extremely windy due to a wind tunnel around that front patio so next time we will definitely book indoors as it was uncomfortable to sit outside after a while due to strong winds.

We were a dinner party of 7 on the patio, which is beautiful but noisy with the frequent sirens from the emergency vehicles. You do get used to them and there is a break between them, but wow - they are loud! Service overall was very good, we ordered a bit too much but it was all super delicious (the only dish that we weren't keen on was the seaweed salad, as it was different than we were expecting). You have to order the oshi, especially the ebi oshi, soo yummy! Other favourites were the brussel sprouts, brocollini, kaisen roll, bc tempura roll and the crudo style sashimi. We have visited Minami in Vancouver and also loved the overall experience. We would definitely return to this location next time were in Toronto and looking for amazing sushi!
