Good authentic Japanese food with high end options like Wagyu beef. Servers are dressed in Japanese outfits. Ours was sweet but was new to English. It was a bit too noisy for us & yet we were in what they called a "quiet booth". The booths give you a bit more privacy. I hate to think how noisy it might have been if we'd been in the regular open area. It was Wednesday night 7pm & the place was packed! Also they gave our daughter a free birthday green tea ice cream with a candle. Very nice. I only wish they do Aburi sushi options like Miku. They've been in Toronto for decades. Excellent service. Thank you for a lovely evening!

The waitress really rushed us on ordering our food. We would have one question about something on the menu and she would ask us to order our dinner when we weren’t ready. The food was ok - not as good as Miku. Probably would not go back again, but happy I tried.

We order Sukiyaki, salmon sashimi and tuna tataki. They are very delicious. I really love tuna tatali, serving a lot as an appetizer. The price was a little bit expensive and not often, why not.

Nami was fine. I expected it to be EPIC given the reviews, but it wasn't. It does have a different kind of layout and feels more like an Izakaya. The food was good quality, but not near the level of SKIPPA or MIKU. Service was kind and efficient. Likely won't be back given the price tag for dinner. Happy to spend the dough, just prefer that at this price point that it's a little more refined.

Air conditioner didn’t work and it was really hot. The choice was not much so I would rather go for all you can eat for sushi.

Food was excellent. Service was excellent. However air conditioning wasn't working. In the 30 degree heat outside. A couple fans in the restaurant tried to get the air moving. Servers tried to keep us comfortable refilling our ice water. Many customers turned and walked away. We braved the heat. Tough to enjoy, but we did. Nonetheless on the pricey side.

Service was very good. The sukiyaki (hot pot) was OK but a little too sweet. The day that we had come in, the chef was not available so a lot of the recommended items were not available. Overall very good environment.

The food quality/taste is on par or below the average sushi shops in downtown but with a higher price point. Although the owner and crew are Japanese, the variety of foods is limited. I would rather go some AYCE sushi with lower cost. Just my 2 cents

Greatest miso soup! But we were not given tea, which is de rigeur in a high end Japanese restaurant. My grilled teriyaki squid tasted only of the burned sugar in the carbonized marinade. Not so appealing. My wife enjoyed her grilled salmon however. So, a mixed review then.
