Been going regularly for a few years. Definitely the best I've tried in this part of the city. Was getting a little run down but they have recently renovated and the place looks great while the service and food remain top notch.

A family business at this location for more than 10 years, it looks a little run down and old fashioned, but as you walk in you are struck by traditional Japanese hospitality. The menu contains all the traditional Japanese dishes, from seaweed salad to spicy...More

Been here many times, They serve consistently excellent sushi. Always fresh. They will recommend particular daily tastes that are particularly good. The service is friendly and warm. We love the sashimi, sushi and rolls. Our less adventurous son is fine with the chicken teriyaki. Everything...More

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
