                              Food was delicious, I just wish we didn’t have to wait over an hour to get our food. They gave us a free tempura dish which was thoughtful. I feel like they were just understaffed but were getting so many Uber Eats orders and prioritizing those.

                              Amazing service, wonderful food. The exterior leaves a negative impression, but the interior corrects that quickly. The tables were closer together than I am used to, but not squished.

                              Excellent Japanese food. Two drawbacks: sushis - sashimis were wonderful, but soup was really lukewarm, -decoration does not put you in the Japanese atmosphere... But overall, it's a good restaurant, serving quality Japanese food

Le resto était presque vide, donc bizarre comme plan d'affaire! Ha oui, on avait réservé avec la mention anniversaire jamais eu un mot sur la note dans la réservation. Très bon mais nos 2 serveurs, pas très allumé sur le service à la clientèle!

                              Limited menu, but the options were tasty. Nice environment and good service. Expensive, but nice for a special night out.

                              Very good sushi. Fair service. Good sake. Bad odour in the dining area. I would definitely recommend takeout or delivery.

                              Great playlist. Worth lingering over tea to listen.

                              The food was fabulous. It is hard to evaluate some of the other aspects, as we were the only customers there at the time. However, the service was helpful an attentive, without being intrusive.

                              Absolutely worth may visits! This is my 5th and the food has been truly excellent every time. They have the most tender squid in Montreal and the Scallop stuffed with crab are too die for!
