Service is great. Food is delicious. Too noisy. Beef rib is too hard to bite. Rice bowels are good. Beef tongue with onion is good.

I’ve recommended to everyone at work
It was my first time there and certainly not the last. The waiter was beyond amazing and everything was amazing 😉

everything was great; however, the person who gave service to our table was not in mood to help us with the menu and our questions.

Very good overall. I expected the meat to be better since it is the star of the BBQ, but found that the meat was not cut uniformly and not always well seasoned. This is my only critic, as everything was yummy and great ambiance.

Very friendly staff, very helpful and attentive. Came around asking if we needed assistance, more drinks etc.
Explained the menu as we are from Australia and had not had the cuisine before which helped alot!
Definitely would recommend and great value for money.

Fun eating as you cook your own food. Excellent service, waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and so excited to present each dish. The vegetables are not amazing but meat, fish , spicy pork and the garlic noodles were delicious.

Il serait important que tous les employés soient bilingues. C'est important d'obtenir un service en français. Il y a un manque à ce niveau, car certains employés nous adressent seulement en Anglais.

The food was good but nothing exceptional. The service was great. A bit pricy for what you get. Overall, I’d say I will go back but with lower expectations. It’s a large international chain. So that helps understand the concept.

Ambiance très agreable. Une belle expérience entre amis. J'aurais voulu avoir eu le choix des marinades pour les viandes. J'ai trouvé le porc trop épicé à mon goût.

Our grill plate kept smoking and had to be changed, but the issue continued.
Other than that, everything was fine, food was good, a bit noisy but whatever... We were visiting Montreal and it was nice to eat Japanese bbq while away.
We usually go to Richmond BC location which us phenomenal.

Thank you!

C'est ma 3e fois au restaurant, mais la première fois que je suis déçue de mon experience. Je trouve très impoli que la premiere chose qu'on se fait dire à l'accueil c'est : Je vous avertie vous avez une table pour 2 donc c'est 1h30 1h45 max. Ça commence mal quand dès l'arrivée on se fais avertir... Il y aurait moyen d'être plus courtois dans votre requête... Ensuite, nous sommes francophones et notre serveur, bien qu'il ait éte bien poli et professionnel, ne parlait pas un mot français. Je déplore qu'on ne se fasse pas servir à Montréal. Pour le reste, la nourriture était bonne comme d'habitude.

Arrived at the table, was all sticky.
The girl at the entry was cleaning the table next to me sprayed her cleaning product all over my arm, i shouted by surprised and was ignored. With NO EXCUSE AT ALL.
It was such a terrible experience with untrained staff, service took between 30-45 mins after ordering. I stayed for over 2 hours at the restaurant due to the wait time.

The sous/vid ribs were cold they came in a cast iron pan so no reason to be cold and it was overpriced and it took awhile to get them, the beef nigiri was so tough that I even had a hard time pulling apart with my fingers, I wanted to get a virgin cocktail and was told it would be the same $6.95 charge as a real cocktail which is ridiculous. Also all these items were specials so there is no reason for it. The service was slow to get the food even though it was not all that busy and we had reserved. We had gone because we ate at this restaurant in Hawaii and it was so good we went back multiple times, not so here. Will not be going back.

We were visiting Montreal to celebrate our engagement and wanted to have a nice dinner out. Neither one of us has had Japanese barbecue before and we loved the experience of grilling our food as well as how delicious everything was! Not only that, we loved the wagyu beef special - something that neither one of us has had outside of Asia. Highly recommended!
