This is a Japanese tapas restaurant, basically. Small, shareable plates. Everything was tasty, and very much appreciated the servers knowdlege of the food amd ingredients. My son had celiac, and they very much accommodated him, provided GF sauce and ensured all was safe.

Love this place so much! Always delicious and nice ambiance. The service was A+, even though we waited a little to get started. The sushis and the gyoza are always to die for. Highly recommend for a nice friends diner / casual date!

Asked for a different table , but manager founded an excuse instead of fixing it.
Restaurant was almost empty
Have no idea why they treated their clients that way

The food is good, the restaurant itself has good ambience but there is music blaring out of speakers placed all throughout the restaurant. And not appropriate dinner music either, really cheesy stuff. If you would enjoy hearing Michael Jackson screaming Beat It in your ears then this is the place for you. It's a shame because there is a lot that's good about this place, I can't recommend it because it's so loud.

Je ne sais pas si le propriétaire a changé ou qqch, mais la nourriture est moins bonne. La salade wakame était congelée, les sushis avec trop de riz. Nous avons du négocier une table où nous n’étions pas collés sur autrui au bar et assis avec l’ordinateur du personnel devant nous. La musique n’avait aucun rapport… Kelly Clarkson puis de la musique mexicaine… dans un resto japonais. Le bon service de notre serveur usuel Jessie n’est plus. Nous venions toutes les semaines et avons été déçus hier.

Food quite tasty but service a little off, for instance ordered bottle of water and it was only brought about 30 minutes later when meal was over and was opened without asking if we still wanted it. a couple other small things, nothing major but just a little weird. All in all good quality food for reasonable (for old montreal) prices. Nice vibe, not too loud but volume did get pumped up around 8:30, harder to have a conversation after that point.

An elegant isakaya in the Old Port, with an enormous list of sake and other Japanese drinks. The tapas are good, with good portions. We've been here a few times, and never been disappointed.

Excellent food and drinks. However our request for special occasion seating was not considered whatsoever, we were sat in front of the main door even with other available seats right next to us.. Other than that, great restaurant.
