Such a special experience. Quite expensive, but worth it for a special occasion. Sit at the bar if you can!

We really enjoyed the food that was prepared. The Wagyu beef was absolutely amazing and it melt in your mouth. Kind of wish we got to sit at the bar though to watch all the preparation.

Food is not interesting and not taste good.
Nothing was prepared at the sushi bar / work table in front of you. All were done before hand. Even sushi were pre-slided and put into fridge.
For $150 pp for a pre-fixed dinner, it is definitely way over priced. Not worth it.
Maybe $60 pp will not make me this angry.

starting with the service, you are greeted by the most hospitable staff. the entire experience to the food, to speaking w/ the chef, and the little details (including bringing a happy anniversary dessert) were all much appreciated.

Service was good but food were very disappointed.
We can only finished 3 out of 9 courses due to general lack of quality in flavour. Steam egg custard with crab ball and clams were very fishy with an unpleasant odour. Bean puree was not smoth, bean residue made it difficult to swallow. Kimedai was blend and not fresh. Deep fried fish skin was not crispy and rather tough on palate. Duck meat ball had no duck flavor. For $150 per head I would expect a much better menu and quality.

My partner and I enjoyed the 9-course meal each. For the quality of cuts of the fish and the authenticity of the ingredients, the price was very fair. The chef plated each course very nicely and was very interactive & entertaining. I would definitely come back to enjoy his works of art!

Food could be better with the price. Some very heavy and unbalanced sauces and tastes. Fishy smells in some dishes. But overall good experience. Good sakes.

food presentation was art on a plate. That alone is worth the experience. Best to sit at bar counter to see the chef in action and chat/interact with him. That made the night. Food wise, I think the flavour was slightly disappointing but again the experience was what made it an amazing night.

Hands down the most amazing Japanese restaurant in Toronto. Taste, texture, presentation - pure artistry from a true artist. The dishes are phenomenal! I urge every one with an interest in traditional Japanese cuisine to check out this little gem of a place. Thank you Master Izutsu for an outstanding experience. Our fourth time at your table and every dish was was sensational....!

Overall it was a unique and good experience. Some of the food was definitely not for the traditional North American pallet but nevertheless if you are looking for something unique this is a great spot. If you can afford to do so and you are into Japanese style food I would recommend giving it a go

Had an outstanding night at Yukashi. The chef made it personal and fun! Every course was presented beautifully and he took time to explain what was presented. Chef Daisuke's took time after the course to converse with his diners personally and we learned quite a bit. Definitely worth going!
