Japanese: like no other

I like Japanese food, especially sushi and sashimi. I don't eat if often. Having lived in Toronto since 1978, I'd found my 'go to' Japanese restaurant. And then I went to Japango. It's ruined me for anywhere else. Quality of ingredients. Freshness. Presentation. You name it. As fine a food... read more

I like Japanese food, especially sushi and sashimi. I don't eat if often. Having lived in Toronto since 1978, I'd found my 'go to' Japanese restaurant. And then I went to Japango. It's ruined me for anywhere else. Quality of ingredients. Freshness. Presentation. You name it. As fine a food experience as you can muster. Don't quibble: just go!

First thing you must know. No matter which day or time you intend to go there get a reservation. The reason for it is simple. The place is tiny. I mean tiny like your dining room at home. Seriously. I counted around 20 seats. That is it. No seating at the sushi bar. Nothing. Nada. That said, the food is... More

The restaurant itself is very small and it feels like they seat more people than they should. The food is expensive and also nothing special. There are plenty of other Japanese restaurants to choose from.

Hands down, Japango is one of the best Sushi places in CANADA!...amazing food, super fresh & most importantly Japango maintains its consistency. Read more about my experience at http://yourstruly52.wordpress.com/thegoodbadtasty/ You can see the dishes we ordered. I promise it tastes as good as it looks.

Beautifully prepared sushi. The sushimen use some of the freshest and best fish I ever tried. Truly a memorable meal. Try the chef´s selection/special. Make sure you have tuna sashimi.

I read about this restaurant on here and went for take out with x3 friends. The waitress convinced me to go for the blue fin tuna belly (amongst other things) and I wasn't disappointed. Every element of the sushi we ordered was produced with care and attention -to a really high level. I've eaten a lot of sushi and this... More

Took my brother for his birthday here. One of the best places to have sushi in downtown Toronto. We took the Chef's menu and it didn't disappoint. The Blue fin was absolutely fabulous but even the routine salmon and tuna were fresh and delicious. The rolls are perfect. I have paid a lot more for not nearly as good sushi... More

That's a tiny cute little place with very limited seats. Sushi and sashimi are fabulous and very fresh. On Mondays and Thursdays you can sometimes find fantastic live sea urchins! Very good!!

visited the place again. very good sushi. very good service. Only 9 small tables with every body talking, it is quite noisy. But the Japango roll is worth a visit again and again. Must have reservation.
