“Poor communication”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Courteous waitress but she does not speak much English. We weren't asked whether we want desserts or not and were given a bill without asking. Fresh ingredients but needed interesting texture; i.e. sesame seeds on sushi should be crunchy but it's not.

“Fun and Yum”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Had a great meal anf a lot of fun here. The staff is friendly and attentive. We sat at the sushi bar so we could pick little plates of food right from the boats in the moat. We had no idea what we were trying most times, but it was all yummy. The sashimi was great, lots of rolls to choose from and even a couple of sweets (those little green balls of glue were weird, but still good ;)) We also ordered some hiyayako, the age dashi dofu and the yu dofu. All excellent. Can't wait to return to T.O. for another round.

“Best meal in Toronto”

I have spent a week in Toronto and ate out every meal. This was the best meal of the week. Furthermore, it is possible they had the beat sushi I ever had... Service was amazing as well. Strongly recommend.

“Sushi as it should be done”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Our concierge recommended Fune and we were pleased she'd done so. The black and red decor is elegant and our mouths began to water as we passed by the roti bar: an oval bar area surrounding the sushi chefs, with a water way between the patrons and the chefs. Upon the water were boats filled with sushi delights, floating by each patron. One takes dishes as one wishes and pays at the end of the meal. Each dish was between $2.50 - $7Canadian.

We ate in the adjourning room at a table and greatly enjoyed our fresh sushi and sashimi. Our 12.5 year old son loved his seared scallops and the "blue" steak appetizer. The service was excellent, too.
