My wife and I went for our Anniversary looking for a wonderful meal. What we got was a truly memorable experience. It would be easy to feel intimidated (and we were) if you are not used to restaurants of this level but the service here was in a class of its own and made us feel comfortable. The servers were attentive, friendly, always present but not intrusive. It was the most personalized service I’ve received. Sitting at the counter was fantastic. Not knowing much about sake, we were guided to find what we would enjoy. The pace of the meal was perfect and well orchestrated. Never had to wait too long nor felt rushed to get through something.

The food itself was simply amazing. As I said, an experience not just a meal. I got to taste things I’ve never had. The sushi was fabulous with the best quality ingredients I’ve had. Fish I’d never had before. So much just melted in my mouth. Beyond the sushi, the food was beautiful. So much attention to detail. You may quail at the price. It’s not cheap and I can’t afford this kind of meal beyond a very special occasion every few years, but it’s something you should do at least once. One of the most memorable nights for us.

I would recommend that you ask for a seat at the corner of the counter....best view of the chefs. They seated us at the far end of the counter so we were not able to really see the chefs preparing the food.

Shoushin is a refreshing Japanese omakase that is definitely worth the money. Flavours all beautifully orchestrated together in harmony with the components it is served with. My new favourite Japanese in the city and will definitely come back for more. Our server Alfred was amazing, knowledgeable and not intrusive, we very much enjoyed the experience.

Our second time here. Service was even better, they obviously checked their notes on customer prefs from our previous visit in order to enhance the dining experience. We had the Kiku menu again, and enjoyed it as much as the first time we dined here.
The premier sushi experience in Toronto, if you want an incredible dining experience for a special occasion than don’t hesitate...just come here and enjoy!

The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. However, the menu price listed on the website was much lower than what we paid, which was not appreciated. We had intended to pay in cash due to being from the States and not wanting any trouble paying with our cards. We almost didn't have enough to pay for our meal and ended up with only a small amount left over for spending elsewhere. If you look at the menu listed on Shoushin's website, please note that it isn't accurate!

I would recommend Shoushin for those who really appreciate high-end sushi, and an authentic experience. If I could have given the food another half star I would have. Chef Shoushin was very exciting to watch, and provided great descriptions of what was set in front of you when asked. The overall experience was great, and the food was impeccable.

Shoushin has to be one of the top sushi restaurants in Toronto hands down. Precision and delicacy of Japanese cuisine at its finest, shines through each menu item. Do not expect any California rolls here. Straight up quality sashimi and nigiri as part of an Omakase style menu is what you get. Also must get one of the quality sake's.
The friendly knowledgable staff will guide you through your meal. Sit back and enjoy.

Truly exceptional sushi and saki!
While not for the financially faint of heart..... the quality, service and ambiance of Shoushin make for an amazing dining experience. If you have the means, it is highly recommended!
We especially loved the various fatty tuna selections, wagyu ribeye, uni/toro/caviar cocktail and the hand-roll (but, let’s not forget the butternut squash creme brûlée). The sake pairing was also very well done....I had no idea how much variety was possible in the world of Sake,
We will definitely be returning..... bravo chef Jackie, and the entire Shoushin team!

Everything about this spot is about the food. The sashimi and the sushi are amazing - fresh, lovely preparation and delicious. The waiters are truly expert on the delicacies and the sake and rest of the menu. Real pros. The setting is quiet - almost too quiet. I would not want to be there with loud friends! Special spot - pricey but if you love amazing sushi, it is worth it.
