Thought it was about time I went here, given that I live round the corner! Very small place with a counter and a few tables, like many places in Japan. Lunch menu offered sushi and sashimi selections and a bento box. In a good sushi place (I think, anyway) this is the best way to order as the chef gives you what's freshest and best; and what turned up was very good sushi indeed. Miso soup and a small tofu and bean sprouts dish came out first, with Japanese tea. The sushi selection was six pieces of nigiri, salmon, prawn, tuna, horse mackerel (my sushi recognition skills might have let me down on that last one though!), and four assorted maki. All very good.
The service was fine and tea refilled throughout the meal. All in all a grand little place, and a bargain at fourteen euros. I'll be back one evening soon to try the dinner menu.

Ajiyoshi near La Place Sainte-Catherine is a GREAT authentic Japanese Restaurant,
don't go there if you expect a fancy, big and luxurious setting.
Go if you like GREAT simple Japanese food for a more than correct price in a small restaurant.
For a moment it was like being in Japan... really GREAT

The sorrounding of the restaurant is pretty nice, but the restaurant itself is pretty small, old and dark. You don't have to think to find a particuar and refined ambient here.
It seems a Japanese honky-tonk (tavern) you can see in some Japanese movies.
The food is pretty divine, though there's always too much ginger in every plate.
There's no English menu, and the main part of the menu is written in French, and not in Japanese. Not all the plates of the menu are available...
It's a good place...to try some Japanese plates...no more than ones!!

Very small and not the cleanest looking place. But very authentic and serving very tasty and fresh Japanese food.
