Great traditional sushi

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. If you want the freshest everything, most interesting flavour combinations and a truly inspired and talented chef, this is the place to go for Japanese food in Halifax. The chef's set menu is my favourite - you have to book a... More

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.

it is an awesome restaurant where you can sit at the sushi car and actually look at the Chef preparing your dishes. We order a Dinner combo and a side dish at reasonable price, relatively inexpensive comparing to the normal sushi restaurant. the quality of food is good too.The server is really nice as well and very helpful.

Very good sushi to be had in this nondescript hole in the wall! Worth having a seat here, across the street from another sushi shop. The chef took a personal interest in our choices!

I was pretty excited to try this place after reading all the great reviews. Unfortunately, everything tasted bland. I ordered the seared scallops, gyoza and fried tofu to start and eel nigiri, spicy tuna maki and yellowish maki as my main. It all tasted the same bland taste except for the scallops. The entire meal was flavourless. Service was good,... More

This is the real deal. If you want to get real sushi you have to try this place. Also the best sashimi I ever ate. Thank you chef you made my day.

This is perhaps the finest sushi I have eaten. The chef is a true master and a good man (we saw him running to return a patron's coat out in the street some time after our dinner). We tried an assortment of rolls, both of the omakase plates (sushi and sashimi), and two different udon bowls. All were superb. The... More

Nothing much too add to the food: everything fresh and tasty. Miso soup is also good, which for me is always a good sign. Mind you, portions of the teranyaki meals are rather small. The noodle soup, however, was large, hot and very tasty. This restaurant is opposite another (much larger) sushi place; it is in a basement floor, which... More
