real Japanese foods

The restaurant has an atmosphere of family run business, it is a simple place but has real Japanese foods. Sashimi and nigiri are all very fresh as how they should be, and there are many different choice which is really good. Service is good also. We love our dinner here!

If you are a fan of sushi pizza go to an ayce place. But, if you love authentic sushi come here. Shige San gave us good suggestions on when to come for the best selection of fresh sushi. Wish we could go more often as there is no place like this in Ottawa. 2 guests from Ottawa.

This reviews echoes others that have been written- it is not an overdone restaurant (simple in decor, clean, good servers), offers simple and traditional rolls that are wonderfully made. A nice atmosphere, friendly, delicious and well priced.

Just a good traditional a la carte sushi restaurant without fancy decor or overly complicated "westernized" rolls. No bizarre concoctions here, just the basics done very well. Service is friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

If you're looking for tempura bits in everything, or "westernized" portions and combinations, this isn't the place for you.

For the rest, the place looks cold but staff is nice, but what is important is what is in the plate right? And you should nit be disappointed there.

In addition to all the great Sushi and Japanese cuisine on the menu. You can also make reservation a few days ahead for Chef Shigeru's tasting menu (Omakase). Chef Shigeru is a true Japanese sushi chef and had cooking and sushi making skills that you won't experience from other "Japanese" restaurants.
