We craft sushi that is pure, fusion-free and extraordinarily authentic. Expect seasonal, sometimes rare, ingredients on our omakase tasting menus.
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!
it’s a excellent place to celebrate girl’s birthday. Best service, exquisite food and the very expensive price.
best restaurant in toronto... would eat here every single day if I could afford to.
Shoushin is an authentic Japanese sushi experience. All of their ingredients are imported from Japan. The service is top notch as well. They bow and tend to all of your needs. I’ve never been to Japan but my friends tell me that is customary in Asia. This is something I wasn’t used to and have not experienced in Toronto. So it was very much appreciated.
We had the the Kiku and loved the variety of dishes. The Wagyu A5 beef and Venetian sturgeon caviar was delicious. Given the number of different appetizers, sashimi, and sushi, the meal was very filling. This sushi restaurant is one of the pricier ones in the city and you can arguably get similar quality elsewhere. But, if you haven’t been, it is worth a try.
Amazing experience as usual, I’ve been here three times and it’s been top notch. Jacky and his team have an exceptional job with preparation and creating the dishes. Jacky hand picks everything in the restaurant. But that seaweed he gets is next level.
Excellent overall experience as always. Just two things... our server was very knowledgeable and explained each dish perfectly. But he speaks quite softly and quickly. It was very difficult to understand everything he was saying. And I was so interested to learn about every dish but didn’t want to have him repeat everything - every time he came to the table.
And the only other thing that prevents us from coming more often is that the omikase menu is so heavily weighted toward sushi. Maybe one of the final courses could include something different.
But the quality is always outstanding.
Sushi was definitely one of the best in Toronto. Preparation was impeccable and a must try for sushi lovers and connoseurs.
The food was great but the price was outrageous. We were also asked to leave almost immediately after dessert despite spending a large amount of money for dinner - I felt that was in poor taste.
My second time here. Absolutely amazing. Will come again for uni for sure! Highly recommend any upgrades introduced by the chef. See u again Shoushin
