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.

As usual, food and service have been outstanding.
We enjoyed especially the knowledge of Chef Jackie
and his employees and the wonderful explanations
they were providing for the different kind of appetizers
and the fish. My favourite: the Red-Eyed-Snapper and
the Firefly-Squid.
Thank you for the wonderful evening.

Wonderful food. Fresh ingredients that was prepared with care and thought. The service was great well. However, during the transition from starters to sushi main we waited approximately 30 mins while the couple that came after us was being served first. I do believe that this was due to confusion on the sushi chefs as they seemed to think we were being covered by another chef while we waited hungrily for our sushi. They did apologize multiple times at the slip and we even got an extra piece of sushi for our wait but I could not help to feel soured by the mishap. I would expect them to have a better handle on their service delivery given their premium price tag. Having said that this was the only thing that soured the overall experience of otherwise excellent meal.

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.

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.

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.
