“Best affordable sushi in Toronto”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

We love this place. The sushi is incredible - they have a good menu with a lot of choice, the fish is always very fresh, and they use minimal rice. My favourite thing to order is the spicy dragon roll. They also have New Zealand sauvignon blanc wine at a reasonable price. There is a patio open in the summer. The service is good and friendly. Highly recommend!

“One of the best!”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

The place is amazing! The chefs are from Japan, although just recently I noticed some new guy at the sushi bar counter. Will have to see who he is.
The food is not the cheapest compared to some other sushi places, but it makes you want to come back again and again. Servers are very attentive; the chef is very generous. I am a regular now, so very often I get a free salad or some kind of a new food to try of an occasional souvenir. I ALWAYS order their "Spicy soup". I think I can make the whole lunch of it if I buy 2-3 bowls. That's how good it is! Then I like their appetizers, especially tako wasabi - chopped marinated squid with wasabi root and strips of nori to put it on. Sushi a la cart of course! I like all the exotic stuff: uni, saba, ikura, spicy scalop, spicy tuna... I don't care about the sushi rolls, but that's just me, I am sure they do great rolls. Salmon colar is flavourful and filling! I can also make a whole lunch of their eal with rice.

“Our Favorite Japanese Food in the city!”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

We come here many times & we have never been disappointed. The food is always fresh and delicious and the staff friendly and very helpful. Our favorites include yaki ebi (grilled shrimp on a skewer), hiyashi udon (cold noodles served with a quail egg & dipping sauce) and hokkigai tataki (marinated surf clam in a vinaigrette).

“Try the CWG maki !”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

A very solid sushi place. Not much of an atmosphere, I am afraid, but the food was very fresh and tasty. The black cod was good, nigiri was fresh and yummy, and the kamikaze maki really melting in your mouth. However, the CWG maki was a firecracker! It is simply fish packed with enough wasabi to make you scream, but it was quite memorable.
