My favorite was the hot sake, tea and miso. Sushi are good but I'd go with a noodle dish. Overall beautiful place and lovely ambiance

Not quite what we expected. Tables very close together. Sake was great. Food choice- just make sure you ask lots of questions.

Sushi was okay, very average. We came for the Uni but it was sold out, which is perfectly fine. We ordered the Vegetable tempura which was shockingly bland with only bell pepper as ‘vegetable’. Unagi-Foiegra Don wasn’t served hot. It was lukewarm. The service was below expectation for this price range and area. I understand that it’s hard for business during the pandemic but this isn’t what I was looking for.

Great food, not another sushi bar, thankfully. Dishes you would find in Kyoto and Tokyo.
Great value too.

A great meal to start our trip to Montreal. Service was friendly and efficient even when we needed to change our reservation time. We received our food quickly as it was prepared which is always great to have it come fresh, ready to eat. The food was outstanding, one of the better Japanese restaurants we've been to and our tween/teens really enjoyed trying all the different menu items. Will definitely be back!

Outstanding place! Japanese fusion food.
We came a big family with separate reservations, guys did everything to accommodate us together in a busy evening. It was so nice.
We tried a half of menu a guess - everything was delicious!
My little one (4 yo) were singing a himn to their full house rolls. Capricious teen-girl ate double portion of noodles.

I read in reviews that portions are small, so in our opinion - it's not true. Portions very good. One appetizer plus one main made me full.

Terrible experience with the staff.

Been before for take out and enjoyed the food. However this time it took 25 min from seating to be greeted. Then we had to remind our server constantly for our orders.

Lastly our orders were wrong on several counts and the waiter attempted to argue with us, and no effort was made to apologize for the wait or mix up.

Overall very disappointed.
