Sushi
We have partnered with Vela at 90 Portland St to introduce a unique patio bar experience that offers a 45-minute omakase dining option. This limited-time opportunity showcases a specially curated menu by Chef Masaki Saito, a renowned Michelin two-star chef. The menu includes 11 pieces of sushi and a handroll, providing Tachi sushi enthusiasts with a fresh and exciting dining experience. Join us at Vela to indulge in our delectable sushi accompanied by a selection of sake and beer.

Tachi was granted a Michelin recommendation in 2022 and also voted Top 100 by Opentable's Diner among 3000 restaurants across Canada. We are part of the same restaurant group as Sushi Masaki Saito (the first and only Michelin 2 Sushi Chef in Canada, #1 Japanese Restaurant across Canada) and Shoushin (Canada's 100 Best Restaurant) which specialize in Japanese Omakase. Tachi is the traditional way to eat well and conveniently.

    Seems to be issues with booking using open table. No availability, and openings that have availability are for 6 AM (accidentally booked and mistook a 6 AM for 6 PM) Actual review: just a really great experience, very much enjoyed the first time, have been wanting to go again for some time 😢

    The absolute best sushi in the city. Don’t miss this pop up. Apparently they will be opening soon at a fixed location and I’m sure you won’t get this deal.

    For the quality of fish in Toronto, I think this is a great value. I have been to Japan and tried Omakase a few times - I would say this is at par to what I would expect from an authentic Japanese restaurant.

    Amazing way to have a tasting menu from a fantastic restaurant. The ambiance is not there as it’s a pop up but the food and service was amazing. They also have an venue inside vela on certain nights so look into that if you want a vibe

    Food was amazing and the staff were very courteous. Sad that they were closing but heard that they're onto better things. Was a great option for a quick but filling 30 minute meal, standing omakase was overall superb. Fish was fresh and we got to watch the chefs at work. My favourite bites were the shrimp and Scallop

    An amazing experience! The sushi was the best that we've had, and the interactions with the chef made it very memorable. He was so meticulous and energetic, we had a great time hearing the descriptions of all the sushi. The sake and beer selection was also very good, and accompanied the dishes really well. We look forward to checking out the next location!

    I think everybody should try this spot at least once. Love the unique way of serving sushi. Perfect if you want high quality sushi without having to break the bank or take 3+ hours out of your day. Chef was kind and personable. My favorite pieces were the fatty tuna (obviously), sea bass, and eel. I will come back if I’m ever in Toronto.

    Toronto needed this type of experience so I’m glad Tachi delivers! The food is good. The drinks are good. The ambience, once inside the eating area, is different which is nice. The exposed kitchen was rather with boxes and dishes all over the place. That part was an eye sore. Other than that it was fun and would go again!
