A basic sushi/Korean eatery

My main purpose in reviewing Ho Su Bistro is to recommend their house specialty, kam pong gi, a fabulously spicy, deep-fried chicken dish that's basically like General Tso's chicken on steroids. Everything else we sampled on our Wednesday-night visit was fairly run-of-the-mill, and I wasn't that... read more

Service and food are always consistently good. Really enjoy stopping here for lunch and dinner or just take out.

We had a quick lunch with very friendly service. It is a great place for families with older children. Ordered sushi and bento boxes.

I keep going back the last three months in hopes that it will go back to the quality it was, however the quality is not improving. The sashimi just doesn't look fresh- it looks like it has been sitting for a while...the white fish is not quite "white" (it looks old) and the taste is not quite right. I have... More

I came here to Toronto to visit some friends and this place was suggested by a few that actually lived in Toronto. So I expected to be very satisfied with the quality here, but I wasn't. The sushi here was just, ok. Most of the fish I had didn't have a juicy taste, it almost was a bit dry. I... More

I ordered the Korean Chicken( awesome taste, made in a special type of bbq sauce i am guessing)and it came with soup, salad and rice, I also got the kamikdze roll which... More

Although the waitress was quiet, my friends and I had a great time coming here. I ordered the beef bibimbap (the first time I have ever had it), and my friends ordered the beef yaki udon, the Korean chicken, and one of the sushi dishes. I think everyone enjoyed their meal very much. LARGE servings, and the traditional starters served... More

My first and last stop each time I am in TO! Sushi is amazing, seaweed salad as well! The only flaw is that they don't have steamed gyoza as option and we always have to ask for that optiom! Also, it would be nice if they had Somersby and Smirnoff ice among beverages. All in all, great service!!

I love this place. The food is consistently good (whether eating in or taking-out) and the service is unbelievable. Once we ordered our food online and it arrived at our front door 15 minutes later (no joke - and it tasted fresh!). This is my first choice when I'm eating out. Oh, and it's cheap!
