Actually the food here is okay, however when we pay the bill the waitress select 20% tip without noticing us, I feel like you should improve on the service or I won't eat here again

A bit on the pricey end, but worth trying! Have to go again to try their matcha panna cotta as they ran out of it last time

Pour vivre une autre expérience culinaire et découvrir des saveurs hors du commun, c'est l'endroit. Le menu est complet et fait saliver dès la première page. Il faut sortir de sa zone de confort sur certains plats mais ça vaux la peine. Pour les amateur de sushi, sortez votre porte-feuille si vous avez une grosse faim, par contre, pour ceux qui veulent essayer quelques sushis très originaux, c'est l'endroit. Bel endroit, bel ambiance, j'y retournerais dans un contexte de première date ou de souper en amoureux. Bémol, les toilettes laissent à désirer.

Une très bonne surprise! Carte très élaborée, service impeccable et ambiance sympathique.
En bonus, pas de musique forte, c'est donc possible d'avoir une discussion entre amis!

The place is in a basement and when it's full, as it was when I was there, it is noisy. The service was OK because the place was full. One choice of food was excellent, the other so-so. Presentation is attractive.
I liked it because there we dishes different from other Japanese restaurants in Montreal. It can get tiresome, sushi all the time.

We are steady customers of this unique and delicious restaurant. The crispy salmon skin dishes, the hot and cold rice and noodle dishes,the foie gras sushi, the tataki and their unique choices of sake make this a gem.
We rate it a 5 star all the way.

Food were good, but the portion is small.

C'est une cuisine typiquement japonaise et la clientèle le prouve car lors de notre visite, une bonne partie des clients étaient japonais. Nous avons partagé 6 plats à 2 et tout était DÉLICIEUX! Une seule petite ombre au tableau est qu'il n'y a que du saké à la carte des vins. C'est dommage qu'un verre de blanc n'ait pas pu accompagner cette délicieuse expérience! Je vais surement y retourner quand même!

I just like to have on their menu regular wine, it would have been much better, ad there are people who don't like Saki but do like wine,

Really good food and ambiance, but since they were short-staffed the service was very poor. Other than that, we were happy to be there!

Very quiet place, food is good but pretty expensive 20$ for a roll of 6 piece with tiny foie gras piece, tartare had more rice crispies than fish pieces. Does not look like the picture in the menu. Had no uni on that day also, but service is good

We had the restaurant almost to ourselves, service was a little slow, I think the staff was waiting for us to flag them over rather than asking us if we were ready to order but once the food had been ordered, it came pretty quickly!
The food was amazing! Great flavours, everything was fresh and so well seasoned! We shared a bunch of dishes and not one of them was disappointing! I was also impressed with the cost of our meal, very reasonable!

Very enjoyable time spent at this restaurant and I will go again. The food looks better than it taste though. I can’t explain why. Most probably the seasoning. I traveled many times to Japan and even if the food served there is Uber natural, the taste is....very tasty. In Montreal, For Japanese restaurant, Kazu does it very well even though the venue is not nearly as nice.
