We provide a high-energy, aesthetically contemporary environment, serving inventive Japanese food, with lively music and have selected staff who are in love with the idea of serving their guests.

Good food and drink selection but on the pricier side of you are having multi-course meal and drinks. Mostly common fare for similar establishments. Staff was polite and pleasant. Seating well spaced, a bit worn here and there- showing a bit of age. Tips: ask for a table or booth away from the doors if you dislike drafts, be aware of the steps, menus are on QR code now.

Did a late afternoon indulgent visit for Japanese food. The food was wonderful, the service was wonderful, the patio was dusty and noisy because of the traffic coming off Jasper Avenue. But I was happy to have the option to dine outside if it meant I could have such good food in a somewhat safer environment.

Food was really good. Service was mediocre. Not sure if it was due to COVID changes, but the restaurant seems to have gone downhill a bit since we were there last in 2019.

I went here a few years ago and it was great. I went here on a business lunch and it was really dark, the leather booths were ripped and it just seemed a bit dumpy. I wouldn’t go again for those reasons however the service was great and the food was good.

Greeted right when we walked in and water was provided soon after. Covid protocols adhered too. Food was flavourful, balanced and portions were a good size. Service was on par. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Good selection of food and drink menus. Highly recommend.

first time trying this place and we loved it. the calamari was a big serving for a cheap price compared to other places, and the wasabi mayo sauce they used was perfect. we also had the hot stone wagyu which was to die for. their sushi was good, a little expensive but worth it. i’ve been looking for a good sushi/sashimi place in town for a while and this one definitely hit the spot. will definitely be coming back!

The food was awesome. But I was put off when we were told when we arrived ' we won't help you till you put your mask on'. The server was great in the beginning but attitude kinda changed and seemed like we were inconveniencing him towards the end. I also felt like he tried to upsell us by saying it wasn't enough food so more was ordered and had to be taken home. Which I prefer sushi fresh. Other than that, the food itself was great.

I have been to Japonais before and it was good. I decided to go back for my anniversary and we didnt get the same product. The ambiance felt like I was eating in a library, too bright. Rolls were loose and kind of tasted the same. I'll probably come back for lunch but I'll wait until they get the night back to what it used to be.

A nicer patio setup would be appreciated. Maybe some more plants, a tablecloth, would spruce it up. The picnic benches aren’t the most upscale :P

1. Waiter crumpled the menu really aggressively after we were done, other waiter just took the other table’s menu nicely
2. Waiter did not come in and check on us at all, other than to give us the food and the bill
