We visited tonight and was very delighted with the menu, prices and flavors. Service was quick and very satisfying. Location is convenient to the hotels and touristic attractions.

The atmosphere was very unexpected based on the outdoor curb appeal. We were pleasantly surprised. It was lovely that the rooms downstairs were all private. I went with a friend but this would be an EXCELLENT date night option. The selection was a bit overwhelming and I felt that things could have been described in better detail on the menu.... More

C'est Japon was an excellent experience! Walking distance from our hotel. Very deceiving from the outside - it is actually very large and good atmosphere. Great food and service. Good selection of sushi, vegetable tempura's and other dishes to choose from. Delicious - perfect meal. Reasonably priced.

This is the only Japanese restaurant I can take my guests from Japan with confidence. It is no nonsense real Japanese taste. The fish is very fresh, spicy tuna is real tuna fillet in it, not those mushy kind. tempura is not covered by heavy flour that you take off and the dipping soup is so delicious. I love their...

I've been eating lunch monthly at this place for the past 7 years and was never disappointed even once. I recently had dinner with my girlfriend at Suisha and she also found that the quality of sushi was superior than many other places we've been together. Thank you for the constant delicious sushi and service Suisha! We'll be back!

My colleague and I were looking for a nice sushi place to eat lunch in downtown Ottawa and I must say we were both amazed with this place. The food was great and the service was impeccable! We tried a variety of sushi and it was all very tasty! Their green tea cheesecake is simply yummy! The decor was nice... More

As someone who lived in Japan I can vouch that the sushi and other traditional Japanese dishes are spot on. I highly recommend booking one of the private rooms downstairs which are very traditional with the sunken tables (make sure to take off your shoes before you enter these rooms)

Had a great dinner at this restaurant on a Friday night with my husband. This is one of the few Japanese-owned restaurants around, which is probably what made the difference in the quality of the food. We shared the beef tataki and veggie gyoza as our appetizer, and then shared a susi & sashimi combo, and a kiku combo between... More
