Great authentic Japanese restaurant. Use high quality in-season ingredients and cooked elegantly. The wagyu uni dish was so creamy and delicious. The seasonal main dish was full of fun while tasting different flavors and textures. Definitely recommend!!!

We sat at the counter and were able to watch the chef up close preparing each dish. This is unlike your typical omakase and the chef and his team puts together unique Japanese dishes with his own touch on it. The food, service and overall experience was amazing. The chef also takes the time to greet each customer and explain how each dish should be eaten and some background on where the ingredients originate from. Would highly recommend and come again!

Everything was excellent. The food tasted delicious and looked beautiful, the service was exceptional, and Chef Daisuke Izutsu was absolutely amazing. The staff there was very friendly, and the chef was really nice to talk to and fun. The ambient of the restaurant was great as well, the whole 9-course kaiseki experience was such a nice way to spend a Friday evening. I highly recommend sitting at the counter, so that you can interact and talk with the chef, as well as having front row seat to see and experience how he and his staff prepare all the delicious food. I highly recommend this restaurant and I'll definitely be coming back here with my girlfriend to try their next seasonal menu.

Very authentic Japanese cuisine. Staffs were very friendly. However, they strictly maintain the penalty charge for cancellation if it is not before 24 hrs. So be mindful about that.

A unique less traditional spin on omakase with less emphasis on sashimi, with a thoughtful progression through the meal. Quite a cozy personable approachable atmosphere. Handled precautions very reasonably.

A wonderful experience. We did the 9 course meal at the counter (closest to the kitchen) and it was fantastic. The food was well balanced and beautifully displayed. The sashimi course was fantastic and of course the wagyu is a treat. The Japanese melon!!! Incredible. Ingredients were fresh and some directly from Japan.

The chef and staff are very friendly - definitely speak to the chef if you get a chance. You get a similar experience as a omakase restaurant in Japan. This experience made us want to rebook a trip to japan!

This was worth the splurge if you’re looking for fine dining. Highly recommend.

My friends and I love tasting menus. We were quite excited to try this restaurant. Boy what a let down. This goes down as one of the worst restaurant experiences I’ve ever had. Unfortunately there are no redeeming qualities to speak of. The ambiance is bare bones basic, similar to what one would expect in an “all can you eat” sushi place. The food, was average. And sparse. Small pieces of sashimi scattered on a board. We got the 9 “course” tasting menu for $150 pp and I was starving afterward. And I’m not one of these people that likes big portions, I adore tasting menus. Not one dish was memorable. The dessert was the final nail in the coffin - a slice of MELON. What an insult. Do yourself a favour and avoid this place.

It was very nice experience with the food. Food was very well executed no doubt of it. The waitress was just very lovely and the chefs as well. It felt a little too bright in there, maybe if the lights could be turn down a little the place would feel a little bit more warm. Portions are small but there is perfection in there. :)

Celerabrated my 25th birthday with my mom at Yukashi. Enjoyed sitting at the counter table, which gave me opportunities to have little conversations with the chef. Observing the production area was unique, everyone is meticulous about making the best presentation. It was worth it to try the Sake pairing which I got a little tipsy. 🥰 this experience brings up memories of my travel to Tsukiji market years ago. Shiso Flower and the umami of the ingredients never fails to surprise me.
LOVE IT.

Yukashi was a fantastic omakase experience. The ambiance was serene, the food was a symphony of unique textures and flavours, and the staff were helpful in explaining the dishes and the proper way to eat them. We went for a romantic dinner and I got the 4-course and my husband got the 9-course menu and they split the additional course so we both got to try them. Still tasting the in-house smoked yellowtail, the tuna belly, and the sake soup in my memories...
