We popped-in to this new restaurant four days after they first opened their doors. We sat at the sushi counter because we like to watch the creations unfold. The presentation is impressive; not only does it taste good but it looks spectacular! Our server was very friendly and we have also encountered him at his family’s Korean BBQ food stall at the Dieppe Market (more good food). Head Chef, Sean Jun, seemed a little shy but was also friendly and open to conversation while he worked. We had Bulkogi (sautéed marinated sirloin beef served with Miso soup and steamed rice) and Unadon (barbequed eel on a bed of rice served with Miso soup). The Bulkogi was good with lots of flavour. The eel was very tender and melted in your mouth. The Miso soup had a nice subtle flavour but was warm, not hot enough. The decor and atmosphere in this new restaurant were quite nice and follow the theme of a typical Japanese style restaurant, complete with private areas along the side where you can isolate a table or two, and close it off for boisterous groups. The two wall-mounted TVs behind the sushi counter were a little distracting and seemed a little out of the restaurant's theme, but will allow sports fans to enjoy great food without missing a game. The restaurant also has a Tepanyaki section which we will try on our next visit. We were told that in the Tepanyaki section, you sit around a large grill with a chef standing by to fry up your order in front of you, no doubt with an entertaining flourish - one more thing to look forward to.
