    The winterlicious menu was a fantastic way to experience the chef’s range in utilizing a wide variety of ingredients. The sushi selection was fantastic, fish perfectly tempered and buttery, and the cocktails were well balanced and delicious.

    I am very disappointed with the food and the service I had today. I was treating my sister to what I thought was going to be a special meal but instead it was just embarrassing. The food at Minami was not any better than the usual middle of the road Japanese restaurant and the service was even worse. The server knew that it was for a birthday and she didn’t even offer a dessert menu instead I had to call her over and press for info on the desserts. Really? I regretted taking my sister all the way downtown for this mediocre food and service. What happened Minami?! I am so disappointed!

    Minami was great. Such a great atmostphere and great food. We loved it! The Minami rolls and charred brocollini were highlights, skip the beef pot roast, go for the sashimi!

    Highly recommend Crudo style sashimi (shrimp with truffle sauce was out of this world, yellowtail, bluefin tuna and the salmon sauce was mouthwatering) Obviously all the fish in Premium nigiri set and Uni tasted amazingly. Vague skewers were so tasty and were melting in our mouth. Too bad we didn't take photo of it. Desserts were out of this world too (cheese tart is not overly sweet, and Coconut banana pie is a piece of art) Vague carpaccio was amazing too! Everything was great. Our server was knowledgeable and nice to chat with.

    I have been a big fan of Miku Toronto and wanted to check Miku's sister restaurant. Some of the menu had signature dishes like aburi, but I loved that Minami's meenu were creative and unique, emphasis on Wagyu dishes. Dishes were amazing and Wagyu sizzling dish was very interesting experience. Dessert was perfectly created to finish the dining experience. Next time I will definitely try some original cocktails as well. Two things that I wished: I wished the host offered coat check prior to seating since most of the winter jackets are bulky. I wished the two Prime set we ordered were served in individual dishes, not all in one plate.

    The food is AMAZING and for a reasonable price. Their dessert is good too. The service was also very attentive. And the ambiance is so beautiful. We went on a Sunday night and got a semi circle booth which was so cute and it was also relatively quiet.

    We dined with a group that has done dietary restrictions but our waitress Chloe was superb in working with the hitches to ensure we were accommodated. The vegan platter was superb as was aburi chicken whhh I ch was very soft and flavourful. The oshi dishes we tried (salmon and tuna) were moist, delicately flavoured and really delicious. We enjoyed every aspect of our dining - the service , food and atmosphere.

    We had tickets to the Mirvish theatre across the street. The restaurant is very close to the theatre.The service and atmosphere were excellent. Every dish was delicious but the portions were quite small and the bill was quite high. I found the menu a little confusing...I think pictures would have helped.

    I believe the reason this place has as high rating as it does is because of out of town guests who might not have a high enough reference point to compare it too. BUT, it's really a glorified sushi place, akin to those run-of-the-meal ones you have an abundance of in this city. Not high enough standard for a Japanese-owned, self-respecting, authentic Japanese cuisine restaurant. Service is slow, food is average at best, warm sake served in a glass jug. The kind of place you visit twice, the first time and the last time.

    I chose the restaurant becuase it of its location, and had no idea just what a treat I was in for. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The food is delectable, it was some of the best service I've ever had, it was clean, it was comfy, etc. I will definitely be returning. There was some adventerous options (I had a dessert with blue cheese on top) and I suggest that you venture from you comfort zone. These chef's know what they are doing.
