Not like it once was at all anymore. Very scattered service and servers are not Japanese or know Japanese food or sake that well. Not worth it for the price at all.

Sushi was very delicious and delicate. It was a little pricey but not unaffordable if you are looking for a really excellent sushi selection. House brewed soy sauce was also done perfectly. The atmosphere was upbeat.

As always the food was excellent. We love the oshisushi, however it was not quite warm when not arrived at the table. We ordered hot sake which arrived by the time we finished our meal A bit mismatched.

Excellent food, attentive and informative service. Superb menu choice.

I was skeptical as I am not a huge sushi fan but this place has converted me.

The shrimp, tuna and salmon were especially delicious.

Would recommend.

The fish was fantastic but that was all that was great. The miso soup wasn't hot and was served with metal cafeteria spoons. The fried lobster was flavourless and the salad was just some plain mixed greens. For the price I wasn't impressed at all other than the sushi. The fish was great but the rice wasn't sticky and kept falling apart.

Everything was absolutely amazing!!! The food is out of this world! Only thing I’d say is, maybe dim some lights for a more romantic ambiance.

But the service was amazing, food amazing !! Will definitely be returning !

La nourriture était excellente et bien présentée. La luminosité du restaurant était un peu forte ce qui rendait l’ambiance un peu moins agréable et le choix de vin était un peu limité.
Le service était toutefois très attentionné et rapide.
