Well located for pre- or post-theatre meals, Shuraku offers a wonderful variety of Japanese dishes. It is fun to try different dishes and the prices are reasonable for such consistently good food.

We’ve frequented this once great Sushi place over many years ever since it first opened. The decor is getting tired, the service is barely there and the food is a ripoff for the prices you pay. $100+ for 2 with 1 sake and 1 beer and we left hungry. The rolls are poorly constructed and about half the size they used to be and were way to salty. The only good aspect was the whole grilled squid that’s always been good. No house sake, no ginger with your Sushi, tiny wasabi and you have to ask the host to send the server over to order multiple times . All around pricey and disappointing experience. Maybe I’ll try one last time in the future because of all the good meals in the past, but please find some less condescending servers that don’t make you feel stupid you don’t speak their language, since English is apparently too difficult for them.

Food was not great, service was okay. But food was very pricy and it's not what I extected. The place is too pricey . And we made a reservation and the place where we sat was aweful. You guys could have given us a booth instead of table near the door.

My colleague and I are no strangers to Japanese food. Been to Miku and many other Japanese restaurants in Canada and United States. Shuraku was a nice surprise. We tasted food that we have not tasted from other Japanese restaurants. Definitely worth visiting. Great value as well.

Love the eggplant poppers, the prawn gyozas, the spicy salmon tartar, and the negitori maki is simply the best..

Appreciate the nice presentation of the cold saki as well :)

I recommend making a reservation as they get very busy.

The food was average, but the service was inattentive. My wife almost finished her meal and mine did not arrive until I complained. When it arrived is was barely warm. There was no apology, so I assume it's how they roll.

The food was fresh and tasty, but the service was very slow which was quite disappointing. had two friends come in from out of town and I brought them here before going to a show, and they weren't too thrilled with the place which is a shame. I've been here a few times and I don't recall it being this slow. It took about 15 minutes for us to get our beer and we were getting our food before our drinks! I won't be coming back for a while. I would recommend the restaurant based on the food, but if they're limited on time, I wouldn't suggest this particular restaurant.
