5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

Outstanding sushi, great selection, nice service. Pricey but well worth it. Sushi boats are highly recommended.

“Unbelievable Freshness and Innovation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

I have eaten at Japanese restaurants all over the world, and since I was a kid, and Tomo is one of the very best I have ever come across. They have a fresh fish and oyster board, and all of their sushi and sashimi is fresh and presented as works of art, complete with fresh flowers and other garnishes. They also make their own marinated and smoked items, as opposed to many who buy them from wholesalers.
I cannot recommend this place enough. If you go and it is very busy, sit at the sushi bar, and you will be very happy you did. Ken the chef is not only amazingly talented, he is very funny.

“Amazing - best Japanese North of Toronto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

This was my first time at Tomo after trying so many Japanese restaurants north of Richmond Hill. This is by far the best and current ranking on trip advisor does not reflect its real place. The food is amazing, not just the sushi and sashimi, but also its special a la carte choices. If you want to get something special Japanese, out of the regular sashimi and sushi you will find at any of the other Japanese ones, you will make an excellent choice. Yes, it is a bit pricy over the regular Japanese restaurant but it is worth the treat. Service was excellent, we were 15 min late from our appointment on a busy Friday night and they still accommodated us on a busy evening, food came fast and had great recommendations from the server. We picked sashimi as the main meal, and rather than letting the chef make the choices for its deluxe boat, we selected them from the a la carte menu and they were all good choices, generous size and great presentation.

“Quality Japanese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

There are so many Jap restaurants all over the Greater Toronto Area but it's always wise to choose a high quality one. Tomo is a little bit pricey but the quality is very good. You can tell from the freshness of the seafood, cut, amount of rice (sushi) and the presentation. They are very consistent with it. Always bring my friends there.
