My boyfriend invite me at Toroli for my birthday as we read good reviews and were always wondering were this place is next door to our flat. Finally we were in front of this tiny house, you can just pass in front without noticing that it's a restaurant there. Inside are just a few seating, around 12! our waitress welcome... More

We finally made it to Toroli on a snow storm night and let's just say we are difficult to impress when it comes to restaurants and food. Having been to Japan twice, and having heard great reviews about the place, we were not disappointed. The flavors were superbly complex and the chef's imagination was reflected in every dish in a...

Ok !! Some people like to have a beautiful restaurant. Personally, I prefer to have a beautiful diner. When you open a restaurant with a limited budget, it is better to give the most in your cooking than in the room. And here we are. The food is incredible. Creation, flavor, imagination. What you eat is just perfect. And I... More

Went with my husband last night and was completely delighted by our dinner! We took the five course meal, and from starters to deserts, every single dish Was just perfection! The lady who served us, charming. We got to taste several sakés before making our final choice, too. The restaurant is tiny and the chef cooks right in the same... More

Food was superb and I agree with everything written about it in all the other glowing reviews. The experience was not great. First of all it is way too cramped and the decor needs seriously to be improved. The centipede doing the butterfly in the water glass got the evening off to a bad start. We didn't make a fuss...

It has been over 2 years since my last glowing review of Toroli, and our Saturday dinner there confirmed it as one of my top recommendations for Montreal residents and visitors alike. Chef Takashi Sakurai’s Japanese-French fusion dishes still astonish and delight, and the interior has been made less Spartan than it used to be, thanks to more subdued lighting,... More

This place is unbelievable. It is a tiny restaurant on the plateau, it can seat maximum 12 people I would say. The kitchen is open and is tiny and there is one chef only, no sous-chef plus his wife taking care of the service. What Takashi Sakurai serves only can be labelled with one word: perfect. Suberb taste, interesting combinations... More

Toroli is a very small place that looks weird from the outside and not particularly good inside. But it's what you'll find on the plates that matters! Wow! Very beautiful presentations. Great flavors, mixing japanese, french and italian influences. We had the small tasting menu. It was a lot. The portions were surprisingly big. And everything was delicious.We had a... More
