    High quality cocktails, sake and food. Small space can get a little noisy but vintage hip hop soundtrack very enjoyable. Amiable service. Would definitely return.

    We tried the tasting menu. I loooove the uni toast:) it’s a must try. The oysters are also the beeeeest I’ve ever tasted, i liked it more than some western restaurant I’ve been to. I didn’t quite enjoy the noodles it was good-tasting but I might have been allergic to the lobster or the puréed veggie on top of the noodles my mouth felt itchy (given that I am pretty sure I had tried the vegetables before in China). The dessert is great! Has a Hong Kong dessert twist

    I came from 1h+ away to experience an “omakase.” Google may have failed Omai and misled me to them but their dishes were good regardless. The tasting menu was good, valued at what you would expect Toronto prices to be. Not cheap but not expensive. It is NOT an omakase (definition: intimate and interactions with the chef as they make your next course meals). It’s more so a restaurant vibe where it holds up to 20 different guests. Omakase’s have a live chef preparing your every dish, the stores are smaller, more intimate, quiet, and full of higher quality dishes. This was what we were expecting. Google reviews on Omai show key words of “omakase” in them which has unfortunately mislead me.

    Overall, the food wasn't what I expected. The Uni wasn't fresh and tasted fishy and smelly. The beef was a bit salty. I was served with a chipped dish. The tasting menu was $88 for each person. We have three person and ordered three tasting menu. For a couple of dish, they served two serving in one plate which the two person will need to share one plate. And for the desert, again, they served two desert and said one desert if for two person. Not happy about it.

    This spot doesn’t miss! Each dish is a euphoric experience and the service is incredible as always. I find it hard to consider going anywhere else!

    Good experience with the tasting menu, we had uni, oysters with caviar, wagyu and sashimi. High value for reasonable price. Favorite dish was the uni
