Counter seating is only available at 5:30pm and 8:00pm. If you prefer to sit at the counter, please select Counter Seating when making your reservation. If the Counter Seating option is not available, it means that the counter seats have already been fully booked for the time slot you have chosen.
We will do our best to accommodate all guests' seating preferences.
Yukashi did not block their bookings! We dressed up and took a cab all the way to the restaurant to find it closed! Very unprofessional and ruined our 2 year anniversary dinner
Food is excellent, fresh and delicious. Chefs worked really hard providing great food, waitress was very kind and helpful. Price isn’t cheap, but it is worthy to dine there! Will definitely go back again!
Yukashi is definitely a must try omakase restaurant!
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.
The food is a work of art. Very high level attention to detail. Chef is very friendly and welcoming. Sit at the counter to see the food being assembled.
We loved the food and the service. It is quite similar to a private dining experience. They really did an amazing job to create a kids meal for my son while we went for the Omakashe!
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. :)
Excellent meal. We were sad when we realized the meal was about to end. Had a very pleasant chat with chef Daisuke which made the experience even better. Will definitely be going back.
Everything was amazing. The food was art I almost didn’t want to touch it. We felt like we took a trip to Japan for the couple of hours we were there. The chef and team was amazing. Highly recommended.
Best Japanese restaurant in Toronto, me and my boyfriend went there and we love everything! Services provided are excellent and food are so tasty! You must not miss this amazing restaurant !
wonderful tasting menu... with paired saki... we were only ones in restaurant though... PEOPLE need to support our local restaurants... !
Excellent and very unique authentic food. You are paying for an experience and it’s well worth it. We loved sitting at the counter and interacting with the very sweet Japanese Chef!
Food is exceptional, they also remembered our anniversary. AC was a bit too cold so bring a jacket.
Will come next time
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.
Lovely restaurant. The Toro and wagyu beef were melt-in-your-mouth. Good sake selection.
This place gives you an amazing omakase experience,the best visual enjoyment and the most worth it experience. All the staffs especially the chef is super friendly and enthusiastic
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...
We celebrated a wonderful birthday at Yukashi and were hosted with superb generosity and attention-to-detail by Chef Daisuke and his team.
Chef is super friendly, I would definitely go back
Me and my gf taste the 9 courses menu with sake pairing on Valentines Day. The food is so creative in its taste, texture, combination:)
Such a unique experience – unlike any other Japanese resto I've been to in the city.
The food was excellent and fresh
True authentic Japanese meal and experience that I only had in japan.
Amazing delicate touch creating beautiful delicious food, with impeccable service. A very enjoyable experience all around (particularly sitting at the counter in full view of the kitchen and creative process)
Food was awesome! Great friendly staff. Very good experience!
Such an amazing experience. The food was amazing, the staff beyond accommodating, and the chef had a great sense of humour and "bedside manner". This isn't just a meal, it is an experience.
We had the four course taste menu. I was just super amazed. One of the best Japanese cuisine in GTA area. The four course set actually comes with 5-6 dishes, which actually make you feel enough. The owner is really friendly, good vibe, excellent service and top-notch food.
if you really enjoy sushi the hard core way and nvm the north americanized style, Yukashi is one you should enjoy. Omakese and not Okonomi, leave and trust the chef. You do not find too many such sushi place in Toronto so give it a try. The creation was fabulous but personally I would like to try more hard-cored kaiseki but perhaps next time when I sit at the bar and let it run. The presentation was delicate and well thought out. I still like to try some fundamental fish fish fish and special chef's secret sauce. Wonderful place....
My date and I had an excellent experience. We decided to undertake a 4 course and 9 course meal (intended to share each of the subsequent courses) and had decided to do a sake pairing. The entire experience was incredible. The chef and the staff were exceptionally attentive and the staff was very knowledgeable and explained each of the dishes to us.
The chef was also incredibly kind and provided us with what seemed to be extra food to ensure each of us were able to try each of the dishes and not feel stressed with dividing the portions.
I would recommend the sake pairing. My date and I were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the pairings were and how well they complimented.
In regards to the food, the food adventure was emotionally provocative and the food was never as it seemed... what we had anticipated it to be and the tastes and flavors were never consistent with the actual experience and it really made for a wonderful gastronomic experience full of surprise and wonder.
We certainly would go back and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a new experience.
The food was great, will definitely go back again!
Modern decorated omakase while maintaining traditional quality and taste. If you get used traditional style, this is the one you must try.
(P.S. the smoked Buri in the sashimi platter is really good)
Fabulous food, amazing and very attentive chef and excellent service. Not to be missed!
We went for my birthday and it was a fantastic experience. We sat at the bar seating which I would recommend because you can see all your dishes being prepared. The chef was able to answer all of our questions about the food and it was a great learning experience. Would recommend for a special occasion or for foodies!
Superb! Food was excellent. We had a great time! Will be back.
Experience was great. the waitresses were helpful and fun, and the chef came to personally tell us his signature dish
Absolutely memorable delicious experience - each dish was an enjoyable experience for the senses. Left feeling very satisfied.
