No sushi - but does have sashimi and chirashi with a twist

This is a small restaurant with very fresh ingredients. They do not serve sushi but do serve sashimi and chirashi. The chirashi was with a twist - basically sashimi on the side of a large flat plate with sushi rice and salad in the middle. I have to say it was absolutely delicious - and the fish... read more

The food at this very small and casual restaurant is delicious. Friendly service and freshly prepared in front of you. And, as an added bonus, the food seems like it might be a little more healthy than your standard restaurant fare.

Kazu is something of a legend among those who work in the "Quartier Concordia" -- it's a hole-in-the-wall Asian fusion spot with a few tables and a bar that's about 2m wide and 10m deep. The food is prepared in front of you if you sit at the bar, and it's always fresh, reasonably priced, and very tasty. There's nothing... More

Never in my life have I seen people so happy to wait in line...because everyone knows it's certainly worth it. Wait staff excellent, cooking team on point....head chef on his game. Their menu is perfection and they have additional seasonal offerings posted on the walls. Foodies beware...you'll want to try everything!

The food is so good it is well worth the wait. The waitstaff and chef were friendly and welcoming even though they obviously need to keep things moving along quickly. If you get on board with how they operate, the experience is great! If I went back, I would again get the sake yuzu cocktail, the dumplings, and the tuna... More

A very good restaurant with very good meals. Try their salad with salmon and tuna tartar and you will not be disappointed. Also, we had the bimpibap (spelling?) and the rib, wow, just wow.. great flavours, great use of spices and sauces. This is a great restaurant to go as a group of 2. It is very small and they...

So many excellent reviews have been written about this restaurant on here that there would seem to be little left to add. In a word, it totally stands up to the expectations. It's one of the best Japanese restaurants I've been to (and probably the best restaurant I've been to so far in Canada). But be prepared for a long... More

We had heard many great things about this tiny place so we were the first in line when they opened the door today. It's kind of like Disneyland. Once they open the door, the madness begins and you need to be ready to ride the wave. Well, we had never been there so we didn't know what awaited us. All... More

I visited this restaurant was a couple of friends and was amazed by the quality and variety of food for such a small place. Despite it being a Wednesday night, the restaurant was packed and we had to queue for about 40mins to get inside. However, once inside, it felt cosy rather than crowded and the service was amazing.

I haven't been here in years and decided to grab some take out last week. The food is always consistent, good and fresh. I was a bit surprised when I got the bill. The prices doubled!! I would definitely return, but probably not as often as I'd like to.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
