We craft sushi that is pure, fusion-free and extraordinarily authentic. Expect seasonal, sometimes rare, ingredients on our omakase tasting menus.
Always a top notch experience. Expensive but worth it.
Amazing food and service, happily recommend to anyone who wants to try the Omakase experience.
Shoushin is always good. Kinda ruin eating sushi anywhere else for me. 🤭
Shoushin is a gem in the city that always delivers beyond expectations. Food is spectacular. Service is so outstanding that no other restaurant can compare. We keep on coming back every time we want an amazing evening. If you like sushi and want to “experience an evening in Japan” - without hesitation go to Shoushin. We already booked our next visit.
The food was extremely delicious, as well as the service, exceptional
Amazing. Definitely will go again
Incredible evening at Shoushin. Enjoyed perfect omakase experience. The Kiku menu is totally worth it with Wagyu Beef and Caviar dishes.
This place is hard to review because it is so exceptional. The best food I have ever had has been at this restaurant. The service is wonderful. Jackie is doing something very special here.
Relaxing ambience. Very zen like. Incredibly knowledgeable staff. Amazing range of flavors and fish. An unforgettable experience.
Exemplary in every way
Spectacular fish priced accordingly
Shoushin is always offer high class food and service. The only inconvenience is the parking. They do not offer valet parking.
As good as always
The service at Shoushin is really excellent. Our waiter was accommodating, attentive and helpful. The omikase was excellent. Each dish was special and really delicious. Fresh fish prepared simply and creatively. Highly recommend.
Incredible through and through. Expensive but well worth the money
is very good
The synchronized service was second to none. The chef chatted with us, which was a bonus since a lot of the Japanese chefs don’t really speak fluent English. The food was mostly shipped from Japan. We chose the Sakura set. It was a good amount of food and I prefer the quality and taste of it than Yasu. Slightly overpriced.
So exquisite and delicious. Spectacular service. Always very pleased whenever we visit. Must try.
A truly great sushi experience
Great experience! The closest you can get from a real upscale Japanese experience
One of the best meals I've had in Toronto. The food was amazing and the service was even better.
As always Shoushin provides one of Toronto's best authentic Japanese omakase experiences with the highest quality imported fish and exemplary service. I can't wait for my next opportunity to dine there again.
Fantastic experience overall! We had the Sakura omakase and added 2 additional sushi before the handrolls and tried the melon before dessert. Staff were extremely attentive without making us feel like we were being watched, and each dish was introduced and briefly explained to us. Loved it!
The service at Shoushin is always impeccable and delicate. Unfortunately we were seated beside a table where it was a work dinner with boss. Very loud and counter to the Shoushin amibiance. Every piece was delivered with a detailed explanation and with the exception of the roe marinade, which we didn’t agree with, the freshness was unbeatable. Perhaps the quantity of rice could’ve been dialed down slightly.
Food was outstanding. Every bite was an experience.
Shoushin had a lovely clean and modern décor while keeping true and respectful to a lot of Japanese traditions and philosophies. The atmosphere was inviting but quiet so that each customer was able to peacefully enjoy their meal. The food was all fresh and delicious and fairly priced for an omasake menu. Definitely looking forward to visiting again!
Always a great experience when I go to Shoushin
Chef Jackie Lin and his fabulous team took us on a unique culinary journey from the moment we walked into the restaurant until we left. Having had sushi in almost every city I have traveled to from Banff to Los Angeles, I can't compare with Shoushin because the experience was so elevated and unique. Our server was very attentive, she noticed I am left handed and reset my table setting. We were impressed with the narrative and instructions our server gave us along the way. Every bite was thoughtfully prepared and presented with description of what it is and how it was prepared. The sushi reminded me of wine tasting from simple fish flavors to more complex as we went. Each sushi bite had it's own personality. I put my prejudice against sea urchin from my one and only experience in 1987 aside and Chef Lin restored my appreciation for sea urchin with how it was served. Thank you!
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner - we live in Atlanta and occasionally come to Toronto - Shoushin will be one of our definite stops every time we come here. See you in October!
The entire experience was a delight. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an authentic Japanese dining experience.
Shoushin is a great Omakase sushi experience. Choose the counter seats to witness the chef make your sushi right before your eyes.
Its all about ingredients when it comes to sushi, and Shoushin sources from their trusted suppliers from Japan and I think some other places too. I haven't tasted better bluefin kama-toro anywhere else.
The atmosphere is quiet, with only a few guests being sat at any given time. You can converse with the chef or server, or simply listen to their explanation of the dishes you are being served.
If you are offered the musk melon at the end of the meal for dessert, and you have never tried it before, I highly suggest going for it.
One of the best omakase I ever had.
Great experience. Service and food were amazing, however we had booked in advance counter seating but once we arrived it was at capacity and we had to be seated at a side table. Visiting from out of town it was a bit disappointing but we Still enjoyed our experience none the less.
Everything is perfect
Our first time at Shoushin and it was a perfect evening from start to finish. Everyone was professional. I loved the extra special uni!
The food, service and ambiance were sublime
The fastest way to eat in Tokyo in Toronto.
Chose this omakase resto to impress guest with quality of menu and experience. Have been going here for 3 years and will continue to.
True omakase experience. This is the closest, outside of Japan, to what we have experienced at 2-3 Michelin star restaurants in Tokyo. The sushi and sashimi are the best I’ve had in Toronto. Great variety. The smaller menu has a lot of food!
