We were looking for a sushi downtown from our hotel in Montreal and we found this hidden sushi restaurant at the second floor of a building on Ste-Catherine Street. Service was perfect, a touch zen deco, the wine card was great and we found an affordable and delicious canadian white wine. Cost 80$ for 27 sushis and a bottle of wine. Sushis were great, not so original but great! A nice place to discover!

This restuarant is very hard to find for a first-timer. It is on the third (technically the 2nd) floor of an office building and has very poor signage on street. It is kitty corner from the Bay store, just past the burger king, and before the future shop.

But once you find it, you will discover a very unique and relaxing dining atmosphere. It is very dark inside, and the waiters and staff make every attempt to keep the restaurant hush-quiet. The sushi is prepared for you, and there are many excellent choices. There are also some excellent alternatives, like the bento box and teriyaki beef or chicken.

Service is fast, and this restaurant seems to primarily cater to the business lunch crowd. The lunch menu is efficent and well organized, with soup, salad, main course and desert for under 20$. Hard to go wrong.

While this is on St. Catherine's, it is a little off the path due to being upstairs and not having a big sign. I'm no sushi expert, but the food, the service, and the ambiance were great!

If it weren't for my boyfriend, who eats here pretty frequently, I wouldn't have found it on my own. It's not on the street level, just so you know! The ambiance and decor was really cool. If you're a larger group, you can sit in a more traditional Japanese style eating area (take off the shoes, sit on floor cushions, eating at a low table, etc.). I had the chilian sea bass entree and it was delicious. My boyfriend had the beef teriaki entree, which he always orders because it's amazing according to him...I tried a bite and he wasn't kidding!

Service was a little slow, but not terrible and actually I preferred the slower pace.
