We found out about this restaurant online last year. We have always enjoyed their take-out but recently decided to dine out. The experience was wonderful. The food was served on a wooden boat which made it fun. The food was terrific. The sake was average. The server suggested a seaweed salad and it was awesome. He was very friendly. We... More

Server Any was knowledgable about gluten issues, pleasant and attentive. The young man equally so. Fish was fresh and nicely portioned. Satisfying snack. Decor lacking but I didn't come here to look at art or to eat on a marble table. Recommended!!

We were to Collingwood with the whole family (with parents on both sides & 3 little kids). So we did a bit of research before going up and found this place. Saw mixed reviews, but good overall... so we gave it a try. Very impressed. Great service, we were offered a room on the 2nd floor so we didn't need... More

My husband and I were disappointed in this restaurant the food was okay but nothing special, not for the prices they are charging. The restaurant look very plain with some Japanese art on the walls, other than that looks like they just moved in in a hurry. No ventilation in the restaurant, very stuffy and hot. Will not go back

The entire experience was disappointing from start to finish. The service well there was none unless I asked for some. The food average and prices let's just say they are the same as many five star Japanese eating establishments. I will not return

I eat here all the time and I am never disappointed. The only negative is the price. They're practically the only sushi restaurant in town (aside from the AYCE next door, which is mediocre at best and the even more over priced Kikaku up at blue mountain)... Experienced some "sticker shock" as someone who moved to a small town from... More

We arrived for an early dinner on a Thursday evening, with students who had attended school in Tokyo. We were greeted by a friendly server who told us she would clear a table off for us. The server reminded us twice that our wait wouldn't be much longer, and we couldn't help but wonder why she didn't clear the table... More

My friend and i visited this establishment based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. To say the least there are no words that can describe our visit. Service was terrible as we received the wrong order. The food had no taste. As i said i cannot describe my bad experience.

Had a great lunch with a friend last week. Really enjoyed my salmon lunch. The food is fresh, well put together and presentation is good too.

My wife and I went in for lunch this past Sunday before heading back home to Toronto and we decided to stop in as we have heard good things about this restaurant. When we arrived we were shown to our seats hidden around the corner behind a partial wall but we did not gave it much thought. Soon after we... More
