Konichiwa is as authentic as it gets when it comes to Japanese food. It's owned by a Japanese lady and all the staff are also Japanese. It's the best place for sushi in Toronto. The place is not huge so if it's full, you're out of luck. During the summer, they have a nice intimate patio so you can hang out there and watch the scene on Baldwin Street. We have been there since they opened umpteen years ago and have never been disappointed with their food.
This is the place we go to when we feel like having real, authentic Japanese food. It feels like home!

Kon-nichi-wa is a great little Japanese restaurant that you may walk past and never even notice. That would be a big mistake. It you are interested in authentic Japanese food, fresh fish and hospitable service for a reasonable price, look no further. I have eaten here many times over the last few years, it is reliably good and I have never been disappointed. Do yourself a favour and visit!

Rustic quaint building with the tables perhaps a little too close together, but they were almost all full by the time we finished. Very authentic Japanese bistro style menu, with very reasonable prices. One of the best tonkotsu ramens I have every had, delicious broth! The gyozas were perfectly seasoned and had very generous fillings. We ordered a yellowtail roll on the side, which I thought was not as fresh as I have had at other restaurants. But I think I would still return for the cooked items on the menu.

We were staying in Toronto for 3 nights and had this restaurant pointed out to us whilst on the Toronto bicycle tour. It was a great find, Baldwin street has a really nice feel to it, and is away from the main tourist hot spots. It's a small place with nice atmosphere and the food was delicious. We haven't eaten a great deal of Japanese cuisine before, but as a different experience, it was a great one! It appeared to be popular with young locals rather than full of tourists too..except us! Highly recommended.

This place is authentic Japanese. Japanese servers, owners and chefs.

Its located in a wonderful part of town (Baldwin Village) and has a very comfortable people watching patio in the nice weather.

For lunch I had Miso soup, Japanese salad and assorted sushi plate for $15. It was fresh, well prepared and delicious.

Very friendly staff.
