“Very Good Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

We began with the traditional soup and salad - nothing surprising here. The service was excellent and we found the sushi to be very fresh. The serving size was plentiful.

“Awesome Sushi restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

I love this place. I have been coming here for at least 10 years. It's near my office and I love the specials. Try the phœnix, the besame mucho.

“Decent but too expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Felt like Japanese, so decided to try this. The place looks nice, the service was good and the food was ok. Wouldn't consider it the "best" sushi, even if it was good. Their specialties sushis are very pretty and quite tasty. The chicken teriyaki was a small portion (especially for $24) and barely had any vegetables with it, plus the chicken was hard.
Overall, it was overpriced. We tried it and won't go back.

“Dependable, service so so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

The special sushi here are creatively presented and the sauces are different. However, the regular fare is nothing to write home about. The service is also completely colorless - not impolite but just impersonal. It's a good place to go with friends and I believe people enjoy the connections as much as the sushi. Thus, the food itself is generally overrated and expensive, considering the large variety of sushi places in Montreal.
