My wife and are I avid sushi eaters, and no matter what vacation we take it is always sure to include at least one sushi meal.
We decided upon JunI after reading the reviews and taking a look at the menu.
It is in a nice shopping neighbourhood in Montrel. The restaurant is nice and cozy, not too big but also not too cramped.
We arrived early by Montreal standards(about 6pm) and were pretty much the first ones there. The service was great and the sushi was very good. They had sea bass and artic char which I had never tried as sushi as well as wild salmon which is not very common. Arctic char was great, I am surprised this isn't on more menus. The fish was fresh and well prepared.
Personally, I find the rice is what makes or breaks a sushi place. JunI makes a decent rice, not too sticky but also doesn't fall apart when you eat it.
After having so much sushi, we really enjoy creative rolls as well as the nigiris and sashimis. They had some excellent rolls such as the lucky maki, and others which were just average. The one with rice crispies was almost 2/3 rice crispies...this was serious overkill on what may have been a good idea.
For the prices they charge, everything coming to the plate should have us looking each other in the eye shaking our heads and then saying "WOW". That just didn't happen on every one and therefore I will give 4 stars.
