Scrumptious dishes done well. Inventive menu but they still get the basics right. Food comes quickly and all the staff are very friendly. Not a place for a long lingering meal, but good for a quick pit stop.

I journeyed to this hole in the wall, locating it by the line outside at 6pm on a Friday evening. As I walked up, I spotted a sign in the window requesting that we pay in cash or Canadian debit cards only, so I had to forfeit my space in line to go get some cash. Though back in 10... More

We loved the food!!! Even though there was a big line to sit, the food was outstanding. The tables are very small and they speed things up to sit down customers. We had the gyoza, and the hazelnut ice cream for desert. A BIG RECOMMENDATION!

My wife became a big fan of Izakaya since she travels quite often to Tokyo for business. In turn, she has made me and our two kids fans as well. During a quick family trip through Montreal, we found this tiny yet highly efficient place to be absolutely wonderful. A true gem, and worth any long wait for a table.... More

48 hour pork bowl is the special, shrimp burger and black tea ice cream. Make it a point to visit in Montreal, they don't charge enough!

I love love love the food here. The chef took the time to invent things that are unique. We ordered the rib which was special of the day and it was awesome. The meat was so soft and melt in your mouth. We also ordered the tuna salmon bowl and it was great. Tried the teriyaki burger and shrimp burger,... More

Visiting Montreal for a conference. The service here was great and the space was energetic and fun. Loved the open kitchen. But the food was really really overpriced and boring. Granted, I lived in Vancouver for five years so probably shouldn't expect much out east. But the fact that this ranks as a top Japanese restaurant here makes me concerned.... More
