    An exquisite meal with equally wonderful service. Seasonal masterpieces are created right in front of you if you sit at the counter (recommended) and friendly conversation with the humble chef - who walked us to the door personally as we left - made the whole experience unforgettable. Thank you for a special birthday!

    What a perfect evening! From the moment the team confirmed our reservation the night before, until the moment the chef said goodbye in person at the door, we had amazing service and ate very well. Delicious ingredients, and very interesting to watch Daisuke and team prepare the meals, plus chat through various items. Highly recommended and we will definitely go again. Congratulations on the Michelin star!! Well deserved.

    My first review in Canada and my favourite place to eat in Canada! Chef’s ingenuity creates a modern kaiseki menu that highlights Japanese and Canadian seasonal ingredients through a variety of traditional Japanese techniques and modern gastronomy. The dishes here are balanced in flavour and texture with gorgeous plating and fragrant aroma to invoke the perfect taste. The easy ambience of a mom and pop restaurant and chef’s great sense of humour also contribute to the experience and put you at ease.

    This is my first restaurant review on Opentable. Yakushi is amazing, amazing amazing. Simply amazing! Every single dish is like an arts piece, impeccable! And they are super delicious! Chef Izutsu is very hospitable and his attention to detail is second to none. It was for my boyfriend’s birthday and we had such a perfect night. We would definitely come back (if we are able to make a reservation).

    Yukashi has recently been awarded a Michelin star and is definitely worth the visit. A fitting award to a special place. Their sake pairing is another revelation. You can sit and contemplate the taste while watching Master Izutsu perform his magic. Book ahead, arrive on time and prepare for a special treat. You will not want to leave. It happened to us.

    The worst customer service we have ever seen. Absolutely refused to accommodate a gluten intolerance. We have eaten at some of the best Japanese restaurants in Japan and dozens of Michelin two and three stars and have never had a restaurant not accommodate gluten intolerance. Everything is prepared hours in advance, hence their inability to adjust. This is NOT Omakase, where the Chef prepares fresh on the spot, reading the customer and serving what they expect to enjoy. This place plops the same pre-prepared plates in front of all customers with zero variances. Horribly rude chef owner, clearly does not care about customers. This guy even questioned what restaurants we had been to in Tokyo that provided gluten free! Which we happily answered and he responded to with some ridiculously dismissive response. Steer clear if you expect any appreciation of customer needs or can’t stand fake smiles and chefs who care only about the cheque.

    We’ve been to a handful of Omakase experiences around the GTA and this was one of our favorites. Each dish was unique and essentially a piece of art. From different ingredients we have never experienced, to cooking methods we have never thought could be applied to an ingredient, it was a fun experience (eg. Never seen soy sauce in a foam cube format). The staff were very courteous, like most high-end Japanese restaurants, and the chef was professional yet casual we had fun conversations with him during and after the meal. Highly recommend Yukashi.

    Having enjoyed Japanese food for many many years, the quality, preparation, and taste are exquisite. It is an experience that is truly special with special sauces and the sake tasting included 2 personal brands. It is pricey but it was enough and but enough for my husband. He was was not full; sashimi were small pieces and if some of the dishes could have been a little more generous like the rice dish and soup, he would have felt more satisfied.

    I’m not good with words, but I want to share my first omakase restaurant at @yukashitoronto today. It has truly changed my perspective on how sushi is supposed to be prepared. Every single dishes represent chef Daisuke's attention to detail. It truly awakens my pallets and brings me a new appreciation for Japanese food. I think the best part Of my dinner is chef Daisuke. He was a delight! I have never felt so comfortable and at home. I didn’t feel like I was at a restaurant but at a friend's house, and we were all having dinner and sharing stories. When the guests leave, chef Daisuke would walk them to the door and thank them. His hospitality is something that I have rarely experienced which truly speak volume about him. I cannot recommend it enough. I will be back.
