It was our third time there and we are huge fans of Chef Jackie Lin and his team. The food and ambience are always spectacular. Our server seemed inexperienced and unknowledgeable (very repetitive with descriptions for our omakase). My husband had the sake pairing and he told the server he didn’t like the one paired with the sushi course (the longest course), our server didn’t offer a replacement. The server said he agreed that it wasn’t as good as the first two sake pairings.
Absolutely incredible, no further commentary needed.
The service and food was phenomenal! A very organized restaurant. The special notes I wrote down during booking was not left out. Fantastic experience!
Great Sushi experience but very, very expensive. Spent $600 with tip for a dinner and saki pairing for 2 people.
My group sat at the counter, which I quickly discovered was the best way to go. The chef was very knowledgeable and skilled, and was quite willing to discuss/explain the food being prepared. The presentation was beautiful, and the flavour. . . Don't get me started. A bit on the expensive side, but well worth it for a special occasion. Overall a great and memorable dining experience.
Superb dining experience. Very knowledgeable staff. Quiet, one can actually have a conversation!!!
Always an amazing experience, chef was friendly. Serving staff very attentive, unfortunately they forgot to change the request from sea urchin to the shrimp which they did offer when we place the order.
Combination of kaiseki ryouri and first class fish, excellent decor, staff with social skills make for a memorable evening. Cost is for special occasions or rich people, but the taste experience is the reward.
Great food, great service, great host! Excellent time.
The chef took some time to warm up to us, but after a while, we all had a great time! There were some hiccups during the night, but nothing they didn't immediately fix. They were very apologetic and reasonable. Went above and beyond to make it right. We all had a great time, and created many memorable moments that we will treasure.
Looking forward to revisiting on special occasions.
Thank you all at Shoushin!
Creative combination of flavors with excellent quality of ingredients. The sushi rice was perfect. Service was phenomenal as usual, and complimented the ambiance/decor of the restaurant very well. Sitting at the counter is especially enjoyable, given the opportunities to watch your meal being prepared and to have a conversation with the fabulous chefs.
Traditional Japanese food.
Only serve tasting menu, good.
It’s really $$, as a 5 course dinner which cost you 150$.
But everything is good, if you can afford it, then it’s a good location to try real Japanese food(delicate edo style).
The owner trying to make it a remarkable place in Toronto I guess. Since it use the same kind of wood table which Masa NYC(which is a Michelin 3star Japanese restaurant )is using too.
The price is approaching Michelin 3 stars too .........
But overall still a way to go.
Appetite is ok today, we tried the 150 set without Cavier or wagyu beef.
Will try the 400 set next time, and write a full cover comment later.
Absolutely exceptional food and staff. Everyone was courteous and knowledgeable, food was fresh and delicious.
So far the best high-end Japanese restaurant in Toronto. Sushi and sashimi made with high-quality fresh meat and the ingredients and proper way of eating are well introduced and presented. The waiters and waitresses are very kind and helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone looking forward to some high-quality sushi/sashimi ($200-500 per person)
Been to some of the best sushi locations all over North America this is the best I've ever had! Premium uni from Japan was outstanding , otoro best I've ever had. The omakase was very good for the price. Not the cheapest place around but well worth it. Highly recommend, our server Alfred was outstanding excellent knowledge of the food.
