Delicious!!

This is an authentic Japanese sushi restaurant that has the freshest sushi you can get in Toronto. The appetizer selection is somewhat ordinary with a few exceptions like the baked persimmons which is delicious and highly recommended.

I have been going to Hiro Sushi for many years. It is the best Sushi Restaurant I have visited. I have always had the Omakase at the Bar. Hiro is attentive and I think he caters to individual tastes though I am not certain. He definitely seems to cater to mine! Fish I would never eat, anchovies, mackerel taste great... More

Authentic Japanese where you feel like you might have flown to Japan for just a few hours during your meal.

Hiro Sushi was right out the top drawer. A high end Japanese restaurant, there was nothing to disappoint. Having booked for the sushi counter we witnessed a master at work whilst enjoying some really excellent food and saki. This is a gem and not to be missed.

I eat sushi and sashimi fairly often - and I make some dishes at home, too. What fascinates me about eating at Hiro's (this is only my second time, but each left an impression) is that the food does taste different from what you think Japanese restaurant food ought to taste like. It is softer, gentler, has more flavour. It... More

Sit at the sushi bar, have omakase, and enjoy. We've been going to Hiro's for almost 20 years, and are never disappointed. The fish is fresh, and the flavours are always delicious. It's an experience and an evening of entertainment and tasty delights. Definitely recommend!

Hiro is really the only legitimate high quality sushi bar in downtown Toronto. Sit at the bar and order omakase. The bill will be high, however, the product is worth the cost. Most people in this thread have no idea what they are reviewing. Fresh sushi? Fresh does not equal good or best quality when it comes to sushi. Most... More

Friends re-introduced me to lunch at Hiro which is admittedly pricier than your average non-Japanese sushi barn, but you get tons better sushi. I have not been for dinner in many years and still have not gone again, but been twice for lunch in as many weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. "One and a half" off the lunch... More

The food at Hiro Sushi is very good with nice presentation, but the service is extremely slow and if you don't want to spend several hours having dinner then this isn't the place to go.

Arrived at 2.15 and left just after four. Thar's a lunchtime recommendation in itself! We had never lunched at Hiro before bur we were not disappointed. The creativity and flavors of the dinner menu are more than adequately represented at lunch. This is top quality Japanese food, a million miles from the "As-Much-As You-Can-Eat" varieties all over Toronto. Everything was... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
