Amazing food quality! My partner and I ordered the Grilled Squid, Golden Crunch, Truffle Fry, Cheesy Dragon, the Robata Bento, and the Matcha Crème Brûlée. They all tasted great. Although it's a bit pricey, the taste quality and the service were all worth it. We would definitely come back to this location:)

As always great food. I do miss some items off the old menu before covid. I appreciate the standard of sanitation as I was there with my parents. Service was a tad slow as there seemed to be a lot of walk in, but very friendly and professional.

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.
