We had read various reviews from Trip before making a reservation at this restaurant. There were lots of complaints about the service but we didn't experience that. Now we had made a reservation for 6pm on a week night which turns out to be the perfect time. We got in right before the crowd so the wait for our sushi wasn't lengthy. We came to this restaurant just for the sushi so we did a couple of appetizers and pretty much went a la carte on the sushi. The appetizers we ordered were tempura and seaweed salad nothing to rave about. The first round of sushi was amazing very fresh and melts in your mouth. We had Fluke, BC Tuna, Salmon, Surf Clams and Scallop sushi with spicy yellow tail rolls (highly recommended as we ordered seconds) and red dragon rolls. All was fresh and delicious! Now they were sold out on sweet shrimp, sea bass and regular Toro (so we did not substitute those). After the first round we reordered the spicy yellow tail and thought since these were all good we should order the UNI. Now I had uni in NYC at Yasuda and Zen Sushi in the east end and by far NYC won out by a long shot! The uni at Mye was fishy with a liquid texture which means it sat too long or way old. The give away was the smell my bf noticed...but we ignored it and ate anyway. Big mistake. I don't know what it is with TO maybe people here don't order uni often but we find even at Zen they're not that fresh. Anyways we did notify our waitress and suggested she tell the chef (now a sushi master would have already known this by the look and smell of the uni but we thought we should voice our concern) she simply said "oh I am sorry you didn't enjoy that". I watched her the whole time and not once did I see her voice our concern. I guess it's inventory they had to clear and we were just unfortunate to order it. Aside from this incident everything else even the service was great. Would I go back again? Yes for everything else NOT the UNI. I think I have given up on Uni in TO. BTW the alcohol is expensive so be prepared, and our second order took half an hour because the restaurant was full by then.
