“Enjoyed ourselves!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Overall this was a fun experience. I had eaten at this type of restaurant before, so kind of knew this type of place-- and this one was equally enjoyable. We got the classic type of meals which were the soup, followed by salad, then shrimp appetizer and main course, all grilled in front of you by the chef. It is a nice experience and we enjoyed the food. The quality of service was quite excellent with all staff smiling at you and being quick and efficient if you needed something. At one point we pulled out our camera to take a pic and didn't even have it turned on and one of the staff came over asking if we'd like a picture taken of us together. I think the staff do an outstanding job!
We would definitely return!

“Best Japanese!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

This place is located in the Royal York hotel at front and York. They validate valet parking!!! The food is very tasty, the sushi is fresh. Wish they would bring back the wagu beef though. Service is very good.

“If you've never had a 'cook at your table' experience, this is worth a try”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

If you've never had a "cook at your table" experience, this is worth a try, as it is an experience - but there are far better dining experiences to be had in the city. The food is average. It is a chain, and it really feels like a chain when you're there - almost like an assembly line/production house. If you are staying and the Royal York and don't want to go out - its very convenient.
