One of the best restaurants in Old Montreal! The service was great; our server explained the different methods of ordering (we went with the chef selection for sushi) and was very attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and was unique to other Japanese restaurants. 10/10!

What made us happy was the variety on their menu.
Lots of items for everyone.

The server was very informed n gave us great advice.

We were a group of 8 n sort of accommodating everyone’s preferences was a challenge.

But it went well.
We left happy n satisfied.

Sushi, Bibimbap, Spicy Edamame, Agedashi Tofu, tempura were all tasty

Nice vibe to the place, food pretty good. Down side: our server was useless in terms of suggestions. When faced with dozens of japanese sake names, how does one pick? Was no help to select sushi as well. But the rest of the staff was quite friendly.

Can not say enough about how good this restaurant was. The food is top notch, service was great, ambiance was nice. Has a trendy and traditional feel at the same time. Bryan was our server and was friendly and very helpful with recommendations from the menu. We dined here 2 years ago and definitely wanted to return. It did not disappoint - was at least as awesome as our last visit if not more. Ordering several small bites is the way to go. We sampled the rainbow sushi roll, edamame, chicken wings, shrimp, pork dumplings, and black cod. All fantastic and unique dishes. Every time we have been here the place is bustling. Reservations are a good idea. Would dine here once a week if we could.

Great place for drinks and tapas or a full dinner. Very lounging and cozy atmosphere, music not too loud and great background music, service was excellent, food was excellent. Tried a bit of everything and was not disappointed. Price is adequate for the quality of the food and service I received. I strongly recommend it.

Nourriture excellente, aliments d'une fraîcheur remarquable, superbe présentation. Il s'agissait de notre première visite et le serveur a été hyper gentil, il a pris le temps de nous conseiller certains plats. Nous savions à l'avance que nous n'aurions que deux heures pour souper cependant, nous aurions aimé demeurer un peu plus longuement pour commander d'autres plats. La prochaine fois, nous réserverons plus tard afin de faire partie du dernier service :) Super endroit!
