Directed to this place by my good friend 'Jay-san' who used to work here in the past, I did not know what to expect but supposedly good. In short, I was pampered from entry to exit by the most friendly staff ever. The most friendly...More

We more or less ended up at this small restaurant by chance and had a great experience! They offer a new twist to some Japanese dishes that will both challenge and impress. Highly recommended!

The design of this Place is really outstanding. Reduced Asia style in a long room. The service is also outstanding. Very, very friendly staff! The menue is limited. Which is fine, however the choices are rather standard. Nothing spectacular. All has a good quality and...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
