    Nous sommes relativement des habitués de cet endroit. Hier soir nous y étions pour célébrer l’anniversaire d’une amie. Nous nous sommes sentis bousculés car, dès notre arrivée on nous a informés que nous ne disposions que de 90 minutes pour commander et prendre notre repas (la majorité des restaurants allouent plutôt 2 heures…). Le service a été correct et, le repas dans l’ensemble aussi (malgré un poulet teriyaki plutôt sec). C’est ce qui explique notre cote abaissée par rapport à nos expériences précédentes. Ça demeure un bon endroit mais il ne faudrait pas y expédier les clients.

    Gyoza were not cooked through; cold in the middle. The sushi was bland and mediocre. Nigiri salmon and tuna was cut too thick. Cooked eel was cold. House hot sake was just tepid and tasteless. Service was perfunctory. Overall, not worth the money.

    Première fois dans ce beau restaurant japonais dont j'affectionne la culture culinaire. Nous avons été très accueilli. Très bien servit. Les serveuses sont d'une belle attention et gentillesse. Côté nourriture, nous n'avons l'occasion d'y manger qu'un soir, car nous venons sommes à Montréal depuis peu. L'endroit (intérieur) est propre, belle prestation, beau cadre. Je conseillerai vivement cet endroit, je n'hésiterai pas à y retourner pour goûter d'autres plats et changer ma note pour la "nourriture"

    Horrific Horrible service and dried menstrual blood on the door of the ladies bathroom ! It was old and dried and repulsive and I’m disgusted and disappointed this restaurant left it there for their guests to see. Washrooms and back room area are filthy. Service was non existent. I will never be back and the restaurant should be absolutely investigated by the health board. ps: I confronted the staff and manager about all of this and they apologized but that was the extent of it.

    Le jeune homme qui nous a accueilli ne souriait pas et la première chose qu’il nous a dite c’est qu’il fallait avoir quitté notre table pour 18h30 soit 1h30 après notre arrivée … Pas très accueillant … Nous avons été tenté de quitter le resto mais avions une contrainte de temps avant un concert un peu plus tard en soirée, donc sommes restés. Nous ne retournerons plus à ce resto lors de nos prochains passages à Montréal.

    Menu très original! Semble authentique cuisine japonaise. Différents plats proposés qui ne sont pas habituellement disponibles dans les restaurants à sushis. L'endroit pourrait être plus propre par contre. Les places sont un peu tassées, plus ou moins confortables. Le service en français est variable selon la serveuse. C'est vraiment très bon et très original pour ce qui est du menu.
