Excellent experience - we tried almost all the rolls on the menu and everything was fantastic. Sashimi set - super fresh with melt in your mouth fish. We even ordered a few of the sharing plates (cauliflower and eggplant) and both were delicious. They accommodated our baby by brining him some plain cauliflower that he munched on while we happily enjoyed our meal. Also a great wine selection - we got to taste a Sancerre that isn’t available at the LCBO. It’s not a cheap place but for a special occasion or date night definitely worth it!

Although the food is good, there are problems that need to be fixed. First, the front door lets in cold air, so if you sit in the front of the restaurant, you experience uncomfortable cold air as customers come and go. Also, the chairs have very low backs and are uncomfortable to sit in.

Excellent! Fish flown in from Japan. Uni from Vancouver. Decor, Service and location not polished, but good enough. Sushi is the star attraction here. Handful of sakes. Daily 10 piece nigiri excellent ($ 67.50 yesterday) and the reason to return.

Considered Japanese food restaurant owned by Koreans, the fish variety is good for sushi. The sauce on top is interesting and creative. Fish is fresh. Since it was our first time, we ordered the $120 Omakase as we want to try the hot dish as well and want to compare quality with other pricey Japanese restaurant. The appetizer is so so, very standard steamed egg and squash salad. No special technique nor high quality ingredients. A bit disappointing. It does come with a small plate of ‘wagyu’ but again nothing special. Hot dish can be improved especially for the $120 menu. The dessert though is good. Very nicely decorated an tasty especially the green tea terrain. This restaurant has its potential if it can improve on the hot plates. I saw other customer having the $90 Omakase which seems to be a better deal as it has the 15 sushi and the one appetizer is fish which looks a lot more appetizing than ours. That menu seems to be a better choice if one wants to try. Sake choice is limited if you are used to going to real Japanese restaurant. Service is quite good though throughout. Worth a try.

We went for a weekday lunch and my companion and I both ordered the 10 piece nigiri omakase. The fish was incredible. Pacing was perfect (resto was also nearly empty when we were there because it was the holidays). The chef who served us clearly took a lot of pride in what he did and he knew the provenance of every fish and told us all sorts of interesting anecdotes during the meal. The price is pretty mental when you break it down, but I was very pleasantly surprised. I left satisfied and would definitely go back again.
We also split the black sesame creme brûlée and it was very small but had a lovely flavour.

Instead of normal sushi, it’s kind of fusion..
Sushi are too saucy, and the sushi rice too salty. Shrimp tempura come with 3pcs and it looks and tastes really funny..
Compare to the food quality the price is way too high. Total bill was $140 for two.. without any drinks
Don’t think will go again..

The food was generally quite good. The variety of fish offered was impressive for Toronto. And some of the dishes were innovative. But the wine by the glass was very poor value. And the seating was very uncomfortable.
