Great food in a small place

The sushi was simply outstanding. Myself and two colleagues had an impromptu visit here and our bill for three large sushi platters, a beer and two glasses of wine was a little over $100, which I thought was quite good. Soup and salad comes with each meal. The place is very small, meaning it seats... read more

Found this place by accident. It holds about 8 or 9 tables and it was packed all the time. Fast service and very well prepared food. I would come back and recommend this place.

The foods are quite pricey her, but it worth every dollar you spend. The quality and freshness of the fish is impress. You won't find this quality of fish in any AYCE restaurant n Toronto.

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.

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
