Nice sushi, tiny restaurant

A recommendation is the JAPANGO ROLL. it's a California roll topped with torched salmon and scallop sashimi with unagi sauce and spicy mayo. It's a signature roll. It used to be nicely torched and you could really tasted the torched fish - however, this time the sauce seemed to overpower the... read more

My friend(not Japanese ) strongly recommended this restaurant, so I went for lunch. The food was really nice. But one thing disappointed me was the manner of staff. She wasn't polite. It wasn't like Japanese restaurant... (Actually, all of the staffs were Korean, haha ) If you come to Japan, you can eat same quality sushi with cheaper price and... More

Just had my 4-rolls take-out sushi. Atmosphere was really nice and I was asked to wait 1 hour or so, so I decide to take out to my hotel. Rolls were delicious and even the miso soup (which is not one of my favorite japanese plates), was yummy. I have to say the place is really small, no weird odors... More

Fast, no nonsense service could be a bit warmer. Small space, so be prepared to bump elbows with the people at the next table. Very good food, nice atmosphere. This was our second visit and we will come again.

Must have caught them on an off day because the service was top notch. Sure they'll never be your best pals but helpful and efficient they very much were. As for the food, everything you've read about. Original and very tasty.

I love sushi and this place did not disappoint. We decided to try it based on the TripAdvisor reviews. I was surprised to see how small the place is and how busy. This is not a fancy place, more of a casual japanse-style small restaurant. We had to wait about 40 minutes for a table for two on a Saturday... More

A few coworkers and I went to dinner after work in the hopes of trying out the food. We made reservations for 6 at 6:00 pm. However, when we entered, we were given 4 seats (instead of 6) and two of us were asked to sit at other tables until he placed another table next to our group. It didn't... More

I requested special meal of Negitoro Don (green onion with chopped tuna on rice), they've never heard of it and asked for $40. I showed them the menu I had in Japan which showed the rice was ¥750 Japanese Yen (approx. $7.5 Cdn), and the response is "it's not on our menu, so we can charge whatever we want". SO... More

Loved the sushi but service was horrible. It was our first time there, so we needed to ask how their menu works...The waiter told me off saying we are only allowed two questions at a time... But he left after I asked once question. And came back 10 mins later for my second question. Lol served us in rush and... 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.
