“Japanese at it's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This is an excellent place for all Japanese fair. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere was great, love the ships going around the moat at the sushi bar. The service was excellent as well.

Parking and traffic can be tricky as it is downtown but it is well worth the trip from the airport area.

“Great service, fresh food & interesting sushi bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Been there a few times, first time was a business lunch, then went with friends a few times. I've found the service was always good; the fish pieces were always fresh with great selections. The sushi bar was an interesting feature, great for ppl who's not familiar with certain dishes and want to 'see' then try. It's a safe option when you are looking for a Japanese restaurant while in downtown.

“Very good sushi in an adequate setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner with a large group of business colleagues. The sushi was only very good. There were no complaints from the non-sushi eaters at the table. The setting was adequate with the usual English challenged staff. Not a big selection of alcohol.

“One of the better sushi restaurants in Toronto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Toronto is not exactly a sushi mecca, being located over a thousand miles from the closest ocean. Although there are many sushi restaurants, most of them are cheap and cheerful, with a lot of all-you-can-eat and fish of basic, decent, but hardly exceptional quality.

Fune is one of the few exceptions. The fish here is always fresh and while it may not compete with the best in places like Vancouver, New York, etc. it is still a cut above. If you sit at the floating sushi bar, don't hesitate to order directly from the chefs or your server if you don't see what you want. Sometimes the best stuff is behind the counter.

Prices are reasonable for this quality, the room is attractive, service is good and the location is excellent if you are downtown for business or a visit to a play, concert, opera or whatever.

“wow...a real gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

What a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed the food and incredible customer service. It was a real neat experience with the self serve sushi bar. A variety of different types of sushi is served on a variety of coloured plates and then placed on little boats that travel around an oval. The prices are based on the colour of the plates. The food was beautifully displayed and the chefs were very helpful in explaining what each plate contained when we asked. The waitress was continuously replenishing my water glass which was very nice. We enjoyed the experience. The decor was nice and the prices were very reasonable. It was a short walk from our hotel and look forward to returning with our friends. The location is in the basement so when you first walk in you are pleasantly surprised to see it is a real gem.
